Yesterday, I shared the UserBenchmark score of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 comparing it to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, where the Navi GPU was around 6% faster in the synthetic bench and just 6% in the effective gaming test. Today, we’ve gotten hold of an in-game benchmark of the Radeon RX 5700XT and guess what? It’s only 3 frames ahead of the RTX 2070 in World War Z which by the way is an AMD sponsored title, known to heavily favor red team.
The game was tested at 1440p at the ultra quality graphics preset and the RX 5700XT yielded 106FPS. The GeForce RTX 2070 on the other hand, was just barely slower with 103FPS. This is rather disappointing as AMD was claiming a performance advantage of 10-20% for $30 less, but here as you can see it’s not even 5% faster. On top of that, this is an AMD title running at 1440p. If you crank up the resolution to 4K, I’m quite certain the delta will completely disappear. So what are you saving the $30 for? To get rid of the RTCores and the Tensors, at least that what it seems like. Pretty pathetic, to be honest.
While AMD’s Navi GPUs seem quite lackluster, NVIDIA is prepping the RTX Super cards with higher core counts as well as better ray-tracing capability. Doesn’t seem like AMD’s position is going to change much in the graphics card market.
