Welcome 7nm, AMD NAVI is here! – AMD Radeon RX 5700XT and RX 5700 Graphics Card Review

Radeon RX 5700

The RX 5700 NON-XT model comes in decidedly more pedestrian packaging as the outer box we see here is a sleeve over the internal packaging.


The inner box for the RX 5700 is the image to the right showing the AMD Radeon logo. that is a tray which sits atop the GPU which is nestled inside in foam and wrapped in an anti-static bag.

The RX 5700 is far more simple than the curved and grooved styling of the RX 5700 XT. it is a smooth painted metal cooler shroud and a complete absence of backplate on this model. The logos are also painted and do not illuminate like the top of the RX 5700 XT does.


Here you can see the rear I/O of the card

  • 3x Displayport 1.4 (with DSC support)
  • 1x HDMI

This is the standard layout and similar to the big brother RX 5700 XT


The power for the RX 5700 is a dual connector 8-pin and 6-pin which is the same as the XT model but only needs to support the 185W board power. I really hope once we can overclock these that this translates to even more OC headroom for this GPU.


The closing shot of the RX 5700 will be the smooth cooler with Radeon logo showing just to carry a little continuity with the previous closing image.


Now to the part we all have been waiting for, myself included, the performance testing.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).

    Hot and loud and performance is ok but not great.

    • It was truly not very hot or loud in my experience. I have seen some who have reported that issue but my card under gaming loading never got anywhere above expected GPU temps. I do wish it had more headroom, but we will find out as WATTMAN was still pretty sketchy when we got a last-minute driver to test it.
