AMD Radeon RX 5700
Released in 2019, the Radeon RX 5700 is a GPU from AMD. According to our GPU Benchmark, this GPU is a very good card for gaming with a score of 43%.
The Radeon RX 5700 has 8 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 437 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 5700 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1465 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1725 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 5700 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.
Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon RX 5700 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 180 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
