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

For the test platform, we went with the Intel 8700K on the Asus Maximus X Formula with Corsair Vengeance running at 3200MHz CL 15. We are running a Thermaltake Triple Radiator cooling solution on the CPU to make sure we don’t get any throttling on the CPU. The operating system is Windows 10 Pro X64 with updates disabled. We make three runs at each test, then average those three runs and report the results here. If we hit a run that we consider being far away from the norm we dismiss that result and run a 4th test. The 8700K has been delidded and liquid metal applied to be sure we get as low of temps as possible to ensure we do not have any thermal throttling issues.

    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.
