Despite running a GeForce 2070 Super, I’m a long-time fan of AMD graphics products. In most markets, AMD cards are a genuine value option: The Polaris based RX 580 and 570 trumped the GeForce GTX 1060 and
In India, AMD’s partners have inflated Navi pricing so much that team Red’s key advantage is just gone. Looking through Prime ABGB listings for the Radeon RX 5700 XT, you can’t help but cringe at the pricing. Reference 5700 XTs are selling at over Rs. 39,000. This is just a few thousand less than cheaper AIB RTX 2070 Supers. Meanwhile, the custom Radeon 5700 XTs like Gigabyte Gaming OC model
The lower-end RX 5700 is priced more reasonably. We’re only seeing reference models here but most are priced below Rs. 32,000. This is a few thousand short of the circa Rs. 35,000 that AIB 2060 Supers are selling for. This makes the RX 5700 the cheapest premium 1440p card on the market. However, it’s still hard to recommend: they’re reference models and the 2060 Super–which performs a bit better and supports ray-tracing–is just a few thousand more.
I really do wish we could recommend Navi but with prices the way they are now, it simply makes more sense to buy into the RTX Super line.
