AMD Unveils The New Radeon RX 5700 Series Graphics Cards
This past Monday at E3 2019, AMD raised the curtain and revealed their next-generation graphics cards, the Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700, as well as the RX 5700 XT 50th anniversary edition, this will be the first Navi GPU product line.
Let us take a close look at these graphics cards starting with the RX 5700 XT, featuring 8GB GDDR6 video memory that will deliver up to 9.75 teraflops compute power performance, with a 256-bit bus and 448GB/sec of bandwidth. The GPU internal clock speed measures 1605 MHz, with a max boost clock rated at 1905MHz. The Radeon 5700 graphic card is a level down yet still featuring 8GB of GDDR6 video memory, performing at 7.95 teraflops.
The cooling setup peaks interest with me as the graphics cards have a new blower-style and a newly designed shroud. The back plate is constructed out of aluminum alloy, and the entire card is implemented with a vapor cooling chamber. Present is an actual 7-phase digital power system along with 8-pin and 6-pin power connector placed on the top of the graphics card.
Both graphics cards will feature a single HDMI 2. 0b port and three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors. There will also be full FreeSync 2 HDR support, and AMD states both cards will have the ability to output 4K at 240Hz, 4K HDR at 120Hz and 8K HDR at 60Hz.
Before concluding this post, I mentioned that AMD also announced a third flagship graphics card which is the RX 5700 XT 50th anniversary edition, still retaining 40 compute units, but has a much higher base clock measuring 1680MHz and a 1980MHz boost clock.
Pricing will go as follows; RX 5700 XT $449, RX 5700 $379 and $499 for the anniversary edition. Market release for these graphics cards will be July 7th.
