How well can the Radeon RX 5950 XT run games
29 Sep 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon RX 5950 XT will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Lets look at the Radeon RX 5950 XT game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2020. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 996.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon RX 5950 XT is predicted to run Cyberpunk 2077 with strong performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 89 frames per second. Comparing this to Assassins Creed: Valhalla which is predicted to get reasonable results, where it averages 45 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Mafia: Definitive Edition, which is running at 59 frames per second.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon RX 5950 XT to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will be good. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 179 FPS, Medium: 141 FPS, High: 95 FPS and Ultra: 68 FPS. We added Assassins Creed: Valhalla to our research and predict it will be playable with a 34 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Mafia: Definitive Edition which got 45 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 5950 XT is a good choice for running modern games at Ultra in this larger screen resolution.

How many years will the Radeon RX 5950 XT graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 5950 XT in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 5950 XT? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Super. This PC hardware upgrade performs 21% better and can run 998 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

Radeon RX 5950 XT Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The Radeon RX 5950 XT is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the first (1.0) Revision of the RDNA 2 Architecture. These specs are yet to be confirmed.


Architecture
The Big Navi 10 XL GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5.


This variant of the Big Navi 10 XL GPU features 40 Compute Units activated, offering XX Shader Processing Units, XX TMUs and XX ROPs. The GPU features a XX MHz base clock speed and up to XX MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated XX% faster than a Radeon RX Vega 64. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the GeForce RTX 2080.


GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at XX MHz, rising to XX MHz with boost clock enabled.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of XX GB/s.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to XXGB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, XXGB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 225W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.


Performance
AMD Radeon RX 5950 XT competes with GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, which is available for $599.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 5950 XT performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 2070.


System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 5950 XT is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 4K. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
