Our Verdict: Upgrading from RX 5700 to RTX 2080 is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for RX 5700 .

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.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080

The good news is, with the release of the RTX 2080 Ti, the RTX 2080 's price is getting more discount. Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RTX 2080 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 1080, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Metro Exodus, Borderlands 3, Anthem at 66 fps to 99 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 81 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Borderlands 3, Anthem, Hitman 2, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat at 62 fps to 81 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 76 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play F1 2019, World War Z, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Battlefield V, Apex Legends at 63 fps to 68 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.

RX 5700 vs RTX 2080 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 .

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 / i7-8700K

It is worth noting that the RTX 2080 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RTX 2080 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like RTX 2080 requires careful thought. 4K gaming is joyous on this RTX 2080 , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
