Our Verdict: The RX 5700 is faster by 45% for 1440p gaming. For 1080p games, upgrading from RX 590 to RX 5700 is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second.

AMD Radeon RX 5700

The good news is, with the release of the RX 5700 XT, the RX 5700 's price is getting more discount. AMD ’s xx00 cards have always been defined by mid-range prices with performance that knocks on the door of high-end graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the RDNA 1.0 graphics card inside the RX 5700, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

In our synthetic benchmarks, the RX 5700 blows past the RX Vega 56 and, amazingly, even the RX Vega 64 as well. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RX 5700 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RX Vega 56, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Metro Exodus, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat at 62 fps to 83 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 71 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Anthem, Final Fantasy XV, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat, Just Cause 4 at 61 fps to 66 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 64 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play World War Z, F1 2018 at 65 fps to 67 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.

AMD Radeon RX 590

AMD ’s xx90 cards have always been defined by high-end prices with performance that knocks on the door of extreme graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the GCN 4.0 graphics card inside the RX 590, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Monster Hunter: World, GreedFall, Final Fantasy XV, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, F1 2019 at 64 fps to 75 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 69 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Apex Legends, Resident Evil 2, Forza Horizon 4, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Strange Brigade at 60 fps to 67 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 64 fps.

RX 5700 vs RX 590 with i7-8700K vs i7-8700K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

AMD Radeon RX 5700 / i7-8700K

With some tuning, the RX 5700 makes the most sense for gamers with 4K monitors. Though serious gamers hardly play at 4k. It is worth noting that the RX 5700 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX 5700 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2019 .

AMD Radeon RX 590 / i7-8700K

At 1440p, RX 590 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the RX 590 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 590 against the competition in budget mid-range cards. It is worth noting that the RX 590 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX 590 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.
