The AMD Radeon 5700 XT is slated to dominate the high-end mid-range market as team red is set to take on NVidia’s GeForce RTX 2070. The price difference between both GPUS is $50, with the 5700 XT performing shoulder to shoulder with the RTX 2070 and can even surpass it in some aspect.

For a quick recap, here are the specs of the AMD Radeon 5700 XT shown by team red. The GPU has 40 compute units, 2560 stream processors; has up to 9.75 TFLOPS, and 8GB DDR6. It has 1905 MHz boost clock, 1755 MHz game clock, and 1605 MHz Base Clock, The Verge reported.

Aside from this, the AMD Radeon 5700 XT will also provide new features to boost the gaming experience. One of them is the FidelityFX, a toolkit designed to improve the visual quality of a game, like sharpening the road graphics seen in racing titles. For titles that don’t support FidelityFX, the Radeon Image Sharpening feature will take care of that front, offering similar graphics upgrades without framerate penalty. Or as low as half percent, at most.

Another feature of AMD Radeon 5700 XT is the Radeon Anti-Lag. It’s made to reduce the lag between a monitor and a GPU, an issue typically addressed by gamers by pushing the FPS performance higher. For comparison, the lag decreased seen at 15ms when juxtaposed to that of the RTX 2070, and can theoretically give gamers an edge when it comes to competitive play, Engadget reported.

But the AMD Radeon 5700 XT does lag behind the RTX 2070 in ray tracing technology. Team red said that ray tracing may be added to its next-gen RDNA GPU lineup but also admitted they’d only be using “select lighting effects.”

As for when the AMD Radeon 5700 XT and the 5700 will be available, the company slated its release on July 7. With how everything is shaping up now, it appears that AMD isn’t only after Intel’s territory but is also eyeing to bump horns with NVidia as well. And at the end of the day, the users will be the one who will benefit from all this competition.
