Our Verdict: Upgrading from RTX 2060 SUPER to RX 5700 XT 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.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

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 XT, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. In our synthetic benchmarks, the RX 5700 XT 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 XT consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RX Vega 56, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. Whether it is a justifiable upgrade depends on what graphics card you are upgrading from. Users with a RX Vega 56 will not see a remarkable increase in frame rates after paying more for this RX 5700 XT. Similarly, those holding onto RTX 2070 's GTX 1070 graphics cards will not have a reason to jump teams yet.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Metro Exodus, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat at 68 fps to 90 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 77 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 67 fps to 72 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 69 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Forza Horizon 4, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Battlefield V, Fallout 76, World War Z at 62 fps to 71 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER

NVIDIA ’s xx60 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Turing graphics card inside the RTX 2060 SUPER, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The RTX 2060 SUPER is much more expensive than the GTX 1060 6GB as it costs a whopping $ 400. Compare this to the GTX 1060 6GB, which came originally at a price of $ 254. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 5700 which costs $ 349.

Spec for spec, this RTX 2060 SUPER leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 1060 6GB, by boasting 2 % more fps. The RTX 2060 SUPER has 8 GB RAM compared to the GTX 1060 6GB 's 6 GB video memory.

In our synthetic benchmarks, the RTX 2060 SUPER blows past the GTX 1060 6GB and, amazingly, even the GTX 1070 as well. Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The RTX 2060 SUPER consistently delivers great frame rate increases over the GTX 1060 6GB and it really justifies an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Metro Exodus, Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat, Gears of War 5 at 61 fps to 89 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 76 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat, Final Fantasy XV, 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 Forza Horizon 4 at 66 fps to 66 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.
