ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT Strix Review


Often when a new Graphics Processing Unit is released it comes in a wave of cards from a variety of manufacturers. The charge is often led by what is referred to as the reference model from the GPU manufacturer themselves - AMD or Nvidia - alongside all the takes upon the formula from the usual suspects.

The release of the latest AMD Radeon GPU, Navi, coincided with the launch of their Zen 2 architecture and was available solely as an AMD reference card for a short period of time. Despite the potential limits of the reference cooler we found it to be a card which neatly combined those two elements so popular for anyone looking to upgrade their visual fidelity, performance and price point. In fact it was the first card in some time, Radeon VII included, which did for AMDs GPU range what the Ryzen CPUs had done for their processors; took on the competition face to face and succeeded. Given that in recent years most GPUs from AMD had come with large caveats about being good value, or perhaps worthy of purchase if you're determined to have an all AMD system, the Navi architecture was a good quality graphics card full stop.

As good as the design of modern reference cards might be, there is always a joy in looking at the partner cards with their substantial cooling. The extra cooling removes any potential thermal limitations and really shows us of what the new GPU is capable. Given that we already knew how much we liked the Radeon RX 5700 XT we couldn't wait to discover what performance the triple fan ASUS Strix model had to offer.

Once again, in battlefield 5, your results for the 5700xt reference and vega 7 are totaly wrong.Quote

You say they are wrong, yet give nothing as to why they are wrong and/or don’t give any info/source as to backup your claim.Quote

To be fair I don't think he needs to provide a source when the graph says Vega64 outperforms the RVII, but it's almost certainly down to the fact that trying to actually reliably benchmark BFV is almost impossible.Quote

£500 is too expensive IMO. Great performing card, but I personally won't be getting this one.

Also, I've never found OC3D's GPU benchmarks overly reliable. They don't retest things and so results can appear skewed. I remember the 1070Ti was raved about here saying it was faster than a 1080, when the reality was, the 1080 had been tested over a year earlier and had many driver revisions since then. I would never take OC3D's numbers at face value. I'd always compare them to other sites.Quote
