When we reviewed the new Radeon RX 5700 XT we found it in a sweet spot at $400, delivering better value than the RTX 2060 and performance close to the 2070 Super for less. Now we have our first custom partner cards making it to retail, today we are reviewing the MSI RX 5700 XT Evoke OC.
You've followed the rumors and ignored the hype; you waited for the reviews and finally slapped down your dollars and walked away with one of the latest graphics cards from AMD or Nvidia. Inside these, lies a large graphics processor, packed with billions of transistors, all running at clock speeds unthinkable a decade ago. Welcome to our architectural comparison of the newest GPUs from AMD and Nvidia.
Today we're taking a deeper look into one of the new features that shipped with AMD's latest Navi GPUs: Radeon Image Sharpening. In short, RIS is a post-processing sharpening feature for games that AMD says carries nearly no performance penalty. How does it compare to GeForce's DLSS?
AMD's brand new Navi 7nm GPUs are significantly smaller than previous Vega 56 and 64 parts, packing fewer transistors on a much smaller package, so we expect them to be efficient. The Radeon RX 5700 and XT GPUs have also been purposely built for gaming and are set to compete directly against GeForce RTX Super cards.
