NVIDIA targeted the RTX 2060 SUPER squarely at the new RX 5700, and AMD countered with a price cut. But which should YOU buy? Which is the better deal?
Let’s compare their performance in various games and resolutions, and find out which card offers the best performance and value!
AMD Radeon RX 5700 vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 is built around the new AMD Navi GPU that uses the new RDNA architecture and fabricated on the 7 nm process technology.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, on the other hand, is based on the current NVIDIA Turing GPU that is fabricated on the 12 nm process. It is essentially a cut-down version of the GeForce RTX 2070.

In the coming sections, we will compare their performance in different games, followed by an evaluation of their value propositions.
RX 5700 vs RTX 2060 SUPER Noise Level
We recorded videos of both the Radeon RX 5700 (US | UK | MY) and the RTX 2060 SUPER (US | MY) running the Time Spy Extreme benchmark at the 4K resolution.
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 (US | UK | MY) uses slightly more power at 185 watts, but has only a single blower fan. The fan noise, while not really loud, is clearly audible.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | MY), on the other hand, uses slightly less power at 175 watts. Thanks to its dual-fan cooler, it is much quieter than the RX 5700.
RX 5700 vs RTX 2060 SUPER Performance Comparison
F1 2019 is a really new racing game by Codemasters, released on 28 June 2019. We tested it at the Ultra High settings.
Amazingly, both the RX 5700 and RTX 2060 SUPER were equally fast at all three resolutions.
World War Z
Based on the 2013 movie, World War Z is a relatively new third-person shooter game, released in April 2019. We tested it using the Vulkan API at the Ultra High settings.
Both cards were equally fast at 1080p and 2160p, but the Radeon RX 5700 (US | UK | MY) was 11% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER (US | MY) at 1440p.
The Division 2
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is a new third-person shooter game released in March 2019. We tested it at the Extreme settings.
The GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | MY) was definitely the superior card. It was faster by 11.5% at 1080p, and 8.5% at 1440p – the two playable resolutions.
Strange Brigade is also a third-person shooter game, released in August 2018. We tested it using the Vulkan API at the Ultra High settings.
The GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER (US | MY) was, again, the superior card although the Radeon RX 5700 (US | UK | MY) matched its performance at 2160p.
The RTX 2060 SUPER was faster by 7.5% at 1080p, and 6.5% faster at 1440p.
