Our Verdict: Upgrading from RX 5700 XT to RTX 2070 SUPER 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, Marvel's Avengers, Borderlands 3, Anthem at 68 fps to 84 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 74 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, Fallout 76, Battlefield V, World War Z at 62 fps to 71 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 65 fps.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER

The RTX 2080 might be the high-end flagship of the latest Turing set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most mid-range PC gamers. On the other hand, the RTX 2070 SUPER is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 499. NVIDIA ’s xx70 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 Turing graphics card inside the RTX 2070 SUPER, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

The RTX 2070 SUPER is much more expensive than the GTX 1070 as it costs a whopping $ 499. Compare this to the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which came originally at a price of $ 399, $ 409. Meanwhile, the AMD closest equivalent card is the RX 5700 XT which costs $ 399. In our synthetic benchmarks, the RTX 2070 SUPER blows past the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti and, amazingly, even the GTX 1080 as well.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RTX 2070 SUPER consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, 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 GTX 1070, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti will not see a remarkable increase in frame rates after paying more for this RTX 2070 SUPER. Similarly, those holding onto RX 5700 XT 's RX Vega 56 graphics cards will not have a reason to jump teams yet.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Metro Exodus, Marvel's Avengers, Borderlands 3 at 61 fps to 83 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 73 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Anthem, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Hitman 2, Gears of War 5, Need For Speed: Heat at 73 fps to 76 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 75 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play World War Z, Battlefield V, Apex Legends, Strange Brigade, Fallout 76 at 61 fps to 66 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 63 fps.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT / i7-8700K

With some tuning, the RX 5700 XT makes the most sense for gamers with 4K monitors. Though serious gamers hardly play at 4k. It is worth noting that the RX 5700 XT is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX 5700 XT 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER / i7-8700K

It is worth noting that the RTX 2070 SUPER is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RTX 2070 SUPER 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. 4K gaming is joyous on this RTX 2070 SUPER , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
