NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super 40% Faster than AMD Radeon 5700 XT in Final Fantasy XV

    AMD Radeon

    AMD had claimed at E3 that the new Navi cards would be 10-15% faster than the competing GeForce offerings, however as the release date draws near, we’re seeing a lot of contradicting benchmarks. We saw the World War Z test where the Radeon 5700 XT was barely faster than the GeForce RTX 2070 despite being an AMD title. After that, the TimeSpy score wasn’t really all that encouraging and both the Navi GPUs lagged behind their green counterparts. Today, the Final Fantasy XV database started showing the scores of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super and Radeon RX 5700 XT and we can see a big deficit between the two.

    Yes, this benchmark isn’t a good indication of real-world performance as it doesn’t take into account the overclocks, accompanying CPUs, memory and other core specs but does give an approximate measure. Here, you can see that the RTX 2070 Super is around 40% faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT, while the RTX 2070 is also quite a bit ahead of the Navi flagship.

    Looking at the RX 5700, the performance is on par with the GTX 1660 Ti, which is substantially slower than the RTX 2060, even more so when compared to the RTX 2060 Super. Plus, the 5700 will cost $20 more than the RTX 2060. Ultimately, we’ll have to wait for third-party reviews but things aren’t looking so good for team red in the GPU market.

    We can basically draw two conclusions from this test. Firstly, the Radeon RX 5700 cards will more or less perform similar to the RTX 2060 and 2070, with advantages in AMD sponsored titles and vice-versa in GeForce partnered ones. While the RTX 5700 XT looks decent considering it’s cheaper than the RTX 2070, the 5700 will need to pull it’s weight as it going to cost $20 more than the RTX 2060.

    1. I would like to point out that your choice of words, article points, comparisons, and conclusions are not only inaccurate, they are misleading. If you want to go by the numbers, we have performance of all GPUs present in the benchmark. Notice how the Radeon VII is slower than the RX 5700XT? Notice how the RX Vega 64, and Radeon VII are slower than the GTX 1660Ti? I own two different RX Vega 64’s, and while they are high-end GPUs, they are both faster than my GTX 1660Ti, even in NVidia titles. The FF benchmark isn’t even indicative of the game performance that it’s tied to. I will not be buying a RX Navi GPU but I can guarantee it will be faster than your article would see it. As a good indicator, look at the Strange Brigade “teaser” by AMD and note the API used. In Strange Brigade running at DX11, the hardware from both sides perform closer to any normal deficit in most other titles. I could go on about it but I don’t think anyone will read my comment, since they certainly won’t read your article past the first paragraph.
