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-
