AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT: First price slide shortly after the market launch
On July 07, 2019, AMD’s new navigation graphics cards, the Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT, were launched. Due to the aggressive pricing of the two GPUs, AMD Nvidia’s new super graphics card tried to compete properly. A first look at the current top 10 most popular graphics cards in Germany shows that this clever move could have paid off.
Although the two new navigation graphics cards already cost less than the competition, the price of the Radeon RX 5700 XT is already falling – less than a month after the official launch.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT: Who is it worth buying for?
Like all current models of the Radeon RX 5700 XT, the PowerColor model also uses the reference design from AMD. In terms of performance, the Navi graphics card is slightly behind Nvidia’s new RTX 2070 SUPER, but can clearly position itself in front of the Radeon Vega 64 from in-house. Here the lead is around 10-15 percent. But the former top model currently costs less.
But how is this performance reflected in absolute numbers? With the RX 5700 XT you can easily play all current games Ultra preset in a resolution of WQHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) play. Reaching the 60 FPS mark is not a problem. In graphically less demanding games or games optimized for the PC, frame rates beyond 100 FPS are also possible. Esports players will also get their money’s worth with the graphics card.
What the card lacks in contrast to its RTX counterparts is dedicated ray tracing hardware. Since AMD also does not currently offer its own solution for implementing ray tracing on its own graphics cards, users have to do without the new graphics technology for the time being.
With the Radeon RX 5700 XT, AMD currently offers an interesting alternative to Nvidia’s graphics cards in the upper mid-range segment. Those who can do without ray tracing get one with the RX 5700 XT potent GPU at a moderate price. The first version of the custom model from XFX was still struggling with some cooling problems, but was eliminated in the current second version. By now, all buyers of the graphics card should get one of the new models.
