AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT vs. RTX 2070 SUPER

  • They both have the same minimum texture and pixel fill rates.
  • The RX 5700 XT has 7.6% higher peak texture and pixel fill rates.
  • The RX 5700 XT uses 10 watts (4.7%) more power.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 vs. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER

  • The RX 5700 XT has 5.6% higher minimum and 10.7% higher peak texture fill rates.
  • The RX 5700 XT has a 4.5% higher peak pixel fill rate.
  • The RX 5700 XT uses 10 watts (5.7%) more power.

However, these are only paper specifications. NVIDIA also took pains in their RTX SUPER tech briefing to point out (starting at 9:20) that the boost speed of Radeon RX 5700 cards kicks in only occasionally, while GeForce RTX cards will boost whenever thermal limits allow.

NVIDIA RTX Super vs AMD RX 5700 : Price-Performance Value

Raw performance is one thing, but what about price-performance value? Especially after new RX 5700 price cut? Let’s find out…

Value Evaluation Based On Specifications

* We earlier compared the MAXIMUM fill rates, but it would be fairer to compare their MINIMUM fill rates, because that’s the minimum guaranteed performance level.

Min. Pixel Fill Rate 105.6 GP/s 107.5 GP/s 102.7 GP/s 102.7 GP/s 93.8 GP/s 94.1 GP/s
$ Per GP/s $6.619 $4.177 $3.885 $4.859 $3.721 $4.240
AVERAGE
$ / (GT/s + GP/s)
$4.413 $2.924 $2.720 $3.401 $2.688 $3.118

Based on the earlier price, the AMD Navi cards had a 20.8% better price-performance value than the NVIDIA RTX SUPER cards.

With the new Radeon RX 5700 price cut, they now have a 23.8% better price-performance value than the NVIDIA RTX SUPER cards. That’s a 14.4% improvement.

Specs-wise, the RX 5700 XT is virtually the same as the RTX 2070 SUPER, but it is now $100 cheaper.

The RX 5700, on the other hand, is about the same as the RTX 2060 SUPER, just $50 cheaper.

RTX 2060 Super vs. RX 5700 Value Comparison

As our article, The AMD Radeon RX 5700 vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Performance Comparison showed…

Specifications NVIDIA GeForce

Launch Price $399 $379 $349
6 Game Average Frame Rate 86.3 fps 86.0 fps 86.0 fps
$ Per fps $4.623 $4.407 $4.058

Even though both cards performed the same, the Radeon RX 5700 (US | UK | MY) offered 12.2% better price-performance value.

The price cut really helped a lot. Without it, the Radeon RX 5700 would have offered only 5% better price-performance value, and that’s nothing compared to the two free games from NVIDIA!

NVIDIA RTX Super vs AMD RX 5700 : Performance Per Watt

Now, let’s compare their power efficiency in performance per watt.

Power Efficiency Based On Specifications

Bear in mind that the AMD Navi GPU is built on the newer 7 nm process technology, while the NVIDIA Turing is using the older 12 nm process technology.

Specifications RTX
2080 SUPER
RX 5700 XT (50th) RX 5700 XT RTX
2070 SUPER
RX 5700 RTX
2060 SUPER
Avg Texture Fill Rate 332.7 GT/s 292.8 GT/s 280.8 GT/s 270.0 GT/s 229.7 GT/s 212.2 GT/s
Avg Pixel Fill Rate 110.9 GP/s 117.1 GP/s 112.3 GP/s 108.0 GP/s 102.1 GP/s 99.9 GP/s
TGP 250 watts 235 watts 225 watts 215 watts 185 watts 175 watts
(Texture + Pixel) / TGP 1.774 1.744 1.747 1.758 1.794 1.783

Despite the AMD Navi’s advantage in fabrication technology, the RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 cards had virtually the same power efficiency as the RTX 2070 SUPER and RTX 2060 SUPER cards.

RTX 2060 Super vs. RX 5700 Power Efficiency Comparison

Since we cannot test their actual power consumption, we will have to rely on their rated TGP (Total Graphics Power) specifications.

Specifications AMD Radeon
RX 5700
NVIDIA GeForce
RTX 2060 SUPER
Total Graphics Power (TGP) 185 watts 175 watts
6 Game Average Frame Rate 86.0 fps 86.3 fps
Watt Per fps 2.15 2.03

Despite the AMD Navi’s advantage in fabrication technology, the RTX 2060 SUPER (US | UK | MY) was 5.6% more power efficient than the RX 5700 (US | UK | MY).
