AMD Radeon RX 5700 vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super: Which Graphics Card Should you Buy?

If you’re building a 1440p PC, then you’re probably stuck between AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 or the GeForce RTX 2060 Super. Both cards offer similar performance, and the main difference is with respect to the features they offer. The former comes with Navi’s FidelityFX and the new Radeon Boost technologies while the latter’s main advantage is in the handful of titles that support RTX. Let’s have a look at the specs.

Radeon RX 5700 vs GeForce RTX 2060 Super: Specifications

AMD Radeon RX 5700 vs NVIDIA RTX 2060 Super

Comparing the specs of the Radeon RX 5700 and the RTX 2060 Super, on paper the shader count of the former is slightly more than the latter. Both the GPUs share the same memory size and standard, with a bandwidth of up to 448Gbps. AMD’s Navi GPUs are fabbed on TSMC’s 7nm node while the Turing GPUs leverage the older 12nm process. Despite that, however, the 2060 Super has a lower TDP rating than the RX 5700, a testament to NVIDIA’s architectural efficiency.

Test Bed:

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
  • Motherboard: ASRock X570 Taichi
  • RAM: 16GB Trident Z Royal @ 3600MHz
  • PSU: Corsair HX1000i
  • HDD: WD Black 4TB

1440p Gaming Benchmarks: RTX 2060 Super Vs RX 5700

At first sight, this may look like a tie but the RX 5700 is slightly faster in most titles. And on top of that, it’s actually cheaper than the RTX 2060 Super (by approximately 1.6K INR). Furthermore, you get the Xbox Game Pass and a copy of Borderlands 3/The Outer Worlds (an excellent game btw) free. The NVIDIA bundle features the new Call of Duty game which isn’t really worth it in my opinion.

Anywho, there’s not a big difference between the two. Just look at the free goodies and the features and see which way you swing. However, our recommendation is the RX 5700. It’s faster, cheaper and comes with a better game bundle. The feature sets are largely equivalent.

I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.
