For years AMD has been in the shadow of NVIDIA in the field of graphics cards. NVIDIA’s proposals have always gone ahead if what you were looking for was maximum performance and efficiency, and until recently AMD could hardly compete except in the most modest ranges.
Things have changed with the new AMD Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT , which have caused NVIDIA to react and launch its improved versions of the first RTX. We have been able to face the new GeForce RTX 2060/2070 SUPER with AMD graphics cards, and the results show that gamers finally have the most succulent alternatives in this range in which power and performance come together at very striking prices.
NVIDIA advances, but it is AMD that puts the batteries
We were already looking forward to a previous topic how the new AMD graphics do not compete (nor do they intend to compete) with the highest NVIDIA range . The RTX 2080 SUPER and especially the RTX 2080 Ti remain unattainable for the AMD graphics at the moment, but it is also true that the prices of these models are significantly higher.
Not only in power, care, but also in energy efficiency , a pending subject of the AMD graphics that has been corrected in the new 5700 / XT. The new RDNA architecture of the Navi 10 GPUs and its 7 nm lithographic process allows notable improvements in this section even if it does not yet reach the NVIDIA levels in this section.
To evaluate these four graphics cards, we have had the reference test equipment of the latest analyzes, something that allows us to establish benchmarks with previous models of these manufacturers’ graphics and that makes it easier to know what we can expect from each card just by focusing on the GPU .
