AMD has announced three new desktop graphics cards at E3 2019. These are based on the new 7nm ‘NAVI’ architecture that gamers have been anticipating for a few years now.
Two of the new models being announced today are the Radeon RX 5700 and the Radeon RX 5700 XT.
The RX 5700 XT has 40 compute units and 2560 stream processors, with a peak performance of 9.75 TFLOPS. It has a base clock speed of 1605MHz and a boost clock speed of 1905MHz, which can only be sustained for short bursts. The more realistic game clock is 1755MHz.
The GPU comes with 8GB of GDDR6 memory and starts at $449. The RX 5700 XT will compete against the NVIDIA RTX 2070, which is priced at $499.
The RX 5700 has 36 compute units and 2304 stream processors, with a peak performance of 7.95 TFLOPS. It has a base clock speed of 1465MHz, boost clock of 1725MHz and game clock of 1625MHz. It comes with 8GB GDDR6 memory and starts at $379. The RX 5700 will compete against the NVIDIA RTX 2060, which is priced at $349.
There’s also a third card, called the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition. It has the same compute units, stream processors and memory as the standard RX 5700 XT, but higher base clock (1680MHz), boost clock (1980MHz) and game clock (1830MHz). It will be priced at $499.
These new cards also support features such as PCIe 4.0, DisplayPort 1.4 with Display Stream Compression, 4K HDR 144Hz or 8K HDR at 60Hz through a single cable, FreeSync 2 HDR, and more.
All three cards will be available starting July 7 from AMD and hardware OEMs.
AMD also announced a new flagship desktop-grade gaming-oriented CPU, the Ryzen 9 3950X. This is based on the company’s new ZEN 2 architecture and features 16 cores and 32 threads. It’s clocked at 3.5GHz with a boost frequency of 4.7GHz. There’s also 72MB L2+L3 cache and 44 PCIe 4.0 lanes. The 3950X is priced at $749 and will be available in September.
