Test Setup and Overclocking

ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT Strix Review

Test Setup

As with any of our testing we always want to be able to compare results as like for like as possible. For the RX 5700 XT that means testing on our current GPU rig which doesn't utilise PCI Express 4.0. However, given the performance of these new Radeon cards we don't think the already fat PCI Express 3.0 bandwidth particularly influences the results in a negative manner.

The AMD launch cards were already very capable offerings in overclocking terms, the importance of creating a good first impression we think, and the extra cooling of the ASUS Direct CU cooler doesn't push the card much higher, although with better thermals we should see more consistent performance especially in the stock results where the card is overclocking itself. Kinda.

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
