AMD has officially launched their new AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards at the AMD Next Horizon Gaming event. The RX 5700 XT will be priced at $449 and the RX 5700 at $379 and both will be lThisaunching early next month and available to buy from July 7th, 2019 onwards, alongside the Ryzen 3000 series CPUs.
At the end of the event two more products were shown off. One was the 50th Anniversary Edition of the RX 5700 XT with a special shroud and increased clocks: 1680 MHz Base clock, 1830 MHz Game clock, and 1980 MHz Boost clock. It will be available at AMD’s website for $499. The other product was the much anticipated Ryzen 9 3950X, the 16 core/32 thread CPU for the AM4 platform. It will have a base clock of 3.5 GHz, a boost of 4.7 GHz, 72 MB of cache, and all within a 105 W TDP. It will launch in September at a price of $749.
The AMD Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards include several powerful new features and capabilities to deliver superior 1440p gaming experiences, including:
– Ground-breaking RDNA gaming architecture – Built from the ground up for superior performance, scalability and power efficiency, RDNA was designed to power the future of PC, console, mobile and cloud-based gaming for years to come. It features a new compute unit design optimized for improved efficiency, and a multi-level cache hierarchy designed to provide reduced latency, higher bandwidth and lower power. It also includes a streamlined graphics pipeline that is optimized for performance-per-clock and high clock speeds.
– Delivering up to 1.25X higher performance-per-clock2 and up to 1.5X higher performance-per-watt3 compared to the previous-generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, RDNA provides the computational horsepower to enable thrilling, immersive gaming by enhancing explosions, physics, lighting effects and more, and by delivering fluid, high-framerate gaming experiences.
– Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) – Restores clarity to in-game images that have been softened by other post-process effects. RIS combines with GPU uspcaling to provide sharp visuals at fluid frame rates on very high-resolution displays, and works across DirectX 9, 12, and Vulkan® titles.
– FidelityFX – An open-source developer toolkit available in the coming weeks on GPUOpen that makes it easier for developers to create high-quality post-processing effects that make games look beautiful while offering a balance of visual fidelity and performance. FidelityFX features Contrast-Adaptive Sharpening (CAS) that draws out detail in low-contrast areas while minimizing artifacts caused by typical image sharpening routines. Developers plan to integrate CAS into a number of popular games, and Unity Technologies plans to integrate it into its real-time 3D development platform.
– Radeon™ Anti-Lag – Optimized for eSports, Radeon™ Anti-Lag improves competitiveness by decreasing input-to-display response times by up to 31 percent4, delivering an experience similar to higher framerates.
– Extreme refresh rates – RDNA enables DisplayPort™ 1.4 with Display Stream Compression (DSC) to deliver extreme refresh rates, color depth and resolutions up to 8K HDR at 60Hz or 4K HDR at 144+ Hz on cutting edge displays, including the world’s first monitor to support DSC: the new ASUS Republic of Gamers 43-inch monitor previewing at E3. The new monitor is capable of delivering 4K HDR at 144Hz with a single DisplayPort 1.4 cable.
– Largest gaming display ecosystem5 – With over 700 supported monitors to choose from, gamers can enjoy stutter-free, tear-free gameplay with AMD Radeon FreeSync 6 and Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology7.
