AMD introduces its Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards at E3 2019

AMD revealed its next-generation graphics cards during its E3 2019 press briefing on Monday: the Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700, as well as the RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, the first products from the company’s Navi line of GPUs.

The RX 5700 XT will cost $449, while the RX 5700 will be priced at $379, and the RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will be $499 and available exclusively on the AMD website. All of the cards are scheduled to be released July 7 alongside AMD’s third-generation Ryzen CPUs.

The Radeon RX 5700 XT will feature 8 GB of GDDR6 video memory and deliver up to 9.75 teraflops of performance. The GPU comes with a standard internal clock of 1605 MHz, but will come with a seven-phase digital power system to help make it more stable for overclocking. During the Next Horizon Gaming conference on Monday, AMD showed off exactly how the card would perform head to head against the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070. In the AMD demo, the 5700 XT outperformed the RTX 2070 by almost 20 frames per second.

Meanwhile, the RX 5700 will be a slight step down in both performance and price from the RX 5700 XT. While the RX 5700 will also feature 8 GB of GDDR6 video memory, its performance will top out at 7.95 teraflops. Once again, AMD showed its new card beating Nvidia’s RTX 2060, the card that AMD said is most comparable to the RX 5700.

The Navi family of GPUs will offer a variety of unique AMD features, but the feature that got the most attention during the conference was AMD’s new Radeon Anti-Lag technology. While AMD didn’t go into the details of the Anti-Lag tech, it was shown to give an average of 30 percent faster response time between inputs and the game’s response.

AMD also closed the show with a special surprise introduction of its top of the line card in the 5700 line, called the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition. Like the other 5700 cards it will feature 8GB of GDDR6 video memory, but it’s performance will top out at over 10 teraflops. The 50 Anniversary Edition card will also feature a base clock speed of 1680MHz and a boost clock speed of up to 1980MHz.

It’s worth noting that AMD did not make any mention of hardware support for real-time ray tracing in the RX 5700 XT or RX 5700. That’s a next-generation graphics feature that is the main selling point of the two Nvidia GPUs that AMD cited as the competition for its new Navi graphics cards.
