AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

The Radeon RX 5700 XT is a GPU from AMD released in 2019. This chip has a very good gaming score at 55% in our GPU benchmark.

The Radeon RX 5700 XT has 8 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 437 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.

In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU core runs at a frequency of 1605 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1905 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 5700 XT 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.

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT has a TDP of 225W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
