IT WAS AN EPIC BATTLE – RX 5700 XT & 5700 Roundup

by birtanpublished on May 2, 2021

Hey everyone Eber here with hurricane axe and as you can see in front of me I have a bunch of GPUs more specifically custom rx 5700 XT and 5700 GPUs we have the super hyped power color devil red devil 5700 XD GPU this thing goes for four hundred and fifty dollars which is a limited edition but you can pick up the regular one for 440 and difference is you're gonna be getting some accessories including an RGB mouse mat which is it's it's up to you if you need that RGB masked man specifically from this company that's an option then we have the ROG Strix 5700 XD OC this is the most expensive 57 XD among the bunch

Because it retails for four hundred and sixty dollars and then we have the MSI evoke OC 57 our next II this is a really interesting looking graphics card it retails for four hundred and thirty dollars now let's move on to the 5700 side so we have the Asus tough gaming x3 5700 this is an overclock GPU and it goes for 400 and sorry not four hundred three hundred and eighty dollars and then we have the Sapphire pulse rx 2700 this goes for three hundred and sixty dollars in fact availability for all of these GPUs are kind of all over the place

Some of them are available in some regions some of them it's kind of difficult to find now I know that I'm missing a lot of other custom board partner cards from gigabyte and XFX but we are working with what we have over here so we're definitely going to talk about performance thermals acoustic and of course find an all-rounder for from this whole comparison so why don't we get started but first a quick message from our sponsor the lick tech to 360 a i/o cooler from Animax now comes in this gorgeous white finish to give your PC a bit of character the EF one pump

Delivers superior cooling performance it's both Intel and AMD socket compatible and it features RGB lighting learn more about it down below alright so let's start off with the physical aspects of these GPU kicking things off with the power color of 5,700 XD this thing is built tank I mean it's almost the same size if not bigger than my Horace RTX 20 DTI which I find to be pretty hilarious it features a triple 90 millimeter fan design with each of them rocking two ball bearings that's supposed to increase longevity it also has these 0db

Feature where the fan stops spinning when temps are below 60 C you also get a metal backplate with the power color logo that's LED lit which looks cool it's also one of the longest GPUs from this batch coming at around eleven point eight inches and that's due to the high-density heatsink that features fine heat pipes you might also notice that the cooler itself is longer than the PCB which sadly places the dual eight pin power connectors at an odd location for routing cables unless if you decide to connect them from the bottom inside a case speaking of a case I would highly

Recommend checking compatibility especially if you plan on installing this inside an M ATX form factor now this card has two modes OC and silent each of them have a powered target of 220 watts and 180 watts respectively and you can switch between these modes using the bios switch located on the side of the card the problem is that you have to uninstall radiant drivers first turn off the PC flip the switch boot into Windows and then we install AMD drivers for silent mode to take effect if you want to run this card in Sun mode although I mean I don't know why would you do it

Because it is an overkill graphics card in the first place but that is something to keep note of the i/o remains the same compared to the reference card and you get fancy RGB Lighting's around the edge they have an overly done RGB with this GPU and I appreciate that moving on we have the ROG Strix 5700 XD this is actually a bit heavier than the power color card but it still features the same length and thickness the design is basically the same as any other Strix graphics cards you still get the same triple fan layout with the 0 DB technology it also comes with a brushed

Metal backplane and the ROG logo that's LED lit as well as RGB the heatsink on this thing is once again ginormous it extends all the way to the end and interestingly enough the dual 8 pin power connectors are located at the right spot for easier cable management this is of course thanks to the extended PCB the front round has a few several RGB strips which is the typical ROG theme then they all go for the i/o is a copy and paste from the reference card and for four hundred sixty dollars you are getting what you're paying for

I mean Asus isn't cutting in corners with this GPU it still looks beefier and heavier like the power color graphics card so I'm curious to see how it compares to the rest of the GPUs and just like the power color GPU this Asus card has two biases which is performance and silent so if you need to flip between those two switches you have to go through the same process like I mentioned earlier next up we have the MSI a VOC OC 5700 XT this GPU looks really cool with this interesting champagne or gold color design if you want to call it that way they've cut

Down on a lot of the gaming elements that you typically get with an MSI GPU it's clean and simple and I like MSI's approach here thankfully it's not as long as the power color and Strix models but it's just as thick as those GPUs so if you plan on installing this in a compact case make sure you have proper clearance to accommodate one the entire shroud is made out of metal except for the plastic grille at the back for air flow you still get a metal backplate that looks gorgeous interestingly enough there are zero signs of RGB on the Evoque and I think that's appropriate

RGB and gold they really won't go well together guys MSI uses a dual fan design with the zero frozer feature that stops spinning the fans under idle scenarios as for the heatsink it looks pretty robust however Steve from gamers Nexus discovered something really interesting when he tore apart this GPU so basically MSI decided to cheap out on thermal pads covering the entire memory and VRMs which eventually led to higher temperatures for those modules the core temps were fine from my testing but it's really an odd cost-cutting factor from

MSI for this GPU and if you're interested in his complete teardown process and some of those findings I'll make sure to leave link to that video in the description down below the i/o remains the same as the others and this GPU uses a six plus eight pin power connector layout and unlike the power color and Strix models the VOC does not come with any modes or switches it's simply a plug-and-play solution so that wraps up the 5700 XT models now let's quickly take a look at the 5700 s starting with the sapphire pulse there's nothing really special

Here with a design it features a dual fan layout and underneath that lies to a robust cooling solution that's packed with specific vrm and memory cooling modules there is not a lot of RGB going on over here you get a simple sapphire logo on the edge that's LED lit one of the cool features of this GPU is that the user can easily replace the fans by simply removing this one screw located underneath the blades and it's connected to the rest of the frame by pins which is pretty neat especially if you plan on cleaning the heatsink later on it's very unique in my

Opinion as for the rest of the card you get a metal backplate a six plus a pin power connector layout IO remains the same here and there is a bio switch that switches between performance and silent mode though keep in mind that the process is pretty much identical to what I just mentioned earlier with the power color and the Strix card gtp is now interestingly enough the sample that we received came with silent mode enabled out of the box which was pretty odd so we had to actually go through the process of reinstalling drivers and then flipping back to performance mode so if

You're someone who's currently rockin the RX 5700 pulse from sapphire just make sure that you're running in in performance mode because I'm not sure if it's just our sample or if it's it's you guys but yeah something that I thought was worth bringing up our final contender for this roundup is the Asus tough x3 5700 OC it's the most expensive 5700 model that we have over here and out of the box I'm getting stealth vibes guys because I really like it it's a complete matte black frame with a triple fan layout with a little bit of tough winding that blends in pretty well it's

Also a very big and beefy GPU featuring the direct cu3 design with copper heat pipes you also get a metal backplate that looks really nice in my opinion the IO remains the same features a 6 pin 8 plus power connector layout and it's located at a comfortable spot for easier cable management and there are no signs of RGB lighting which is nice it doesn't come with a dual BIOS which like the Sapphire card so it's simply a plug-and-play solution which is nice now having looked at all of these car from a physical aspect I guess it's time to get into performance but before that

Let's quickly go over the frequencies of these individual gpo's because they are factory overclocked out of the box so here's an overview of the base and game clocks on the 5700 XT GPUs the RG Strix model has the highest among the rest followed by the power color GPU and then the MSI evoke OC it's a welcoming upgrade over the reference model and from our testing using the performance modes on all GPUs we were able to sustain the core clocks above the expected game clocks on all three graphics cards under our 10 minute game load test switching over to the RX 5700

The tough graphics card takes the edge here sporting the highest game clock followed by sapphire however with the top GPU we were only able to sustain an average core clock of 1698 megahertz over our 10 minute game load test but now let's switch over to game and as you can see the results were on par with our expectations given the price point of these GPUs the ROG Strix 5700 XT took the lead in every game that we tested and that's tanks to the higher factory overclock it came with out of the box that being said the power color GPU is almost as good as the Strix card and it

Performs pretty close to that GPU and it's $20 cheaper the MSI Evoque OC does pretty well and honestly I have nothing to complain here for the price the RX 57 hundreds didn't perform as well as expected them to the sapphire and tough GPUs performed literally the same and zero perceivable improvement versus C stock reference card if I had to choose one I'd get the Sapphire card because it's a bit low profile and it costs less than the tough GPU we also tested different modes within these graphics cards to see how much you're gaining or losing in terms of frame rates and as

You can see with the ROG Strix 5700 XT you're not losing that much in terms of performance switching to silent mode in fact it still manages to outperform the power color GPU in OC mode speaking of Lee Parker GPU there is a noticeable difference in both modes and that's obviously due to the power limit so keep that in mind and the same story applies to the Sapphire card temperatures look pretty respectable analyzing the XT batch the MSI evoke OC ran the coolest among the rest but keep in mind that these are the core temps and not VRM or

Memory readings and as I mentioned earlier referring back to Steve's video the thermal performance on the MSI card for the VR ends and memory we're in the best and that's due to their poor thermal pad design so that's something to definitely keep note of the Strix card ran a bit hotter compared to the power color GPU but nothing significant and they're all noticeably better than the reference card from AMD switching over to the 57 hundreds the Sapphire card ran the hottest followed by the tough which was really surprising considering the performance identically

So that was a bit odd but I think I have an explanation for that which I'll get into right after this sound test mind you guys these cars were running under full gaming load in the respective performance modes so when you look at the acoustic performance of these GPUs specifically with the 57 hundreds the Sapphire card performs the best and that was expected considering it ran a bit hotter than the tough GPU but that card wasn't too loud either with the XT models the ROG Strix GP was the quietest when

Compared to MSI's evoke OC and power colors red devil finally here's a quick overview of power consumption the ROG consumes the most amount of power followed by power color and in the evoke the a2 stuff 5700 draws almost the same amount of power as the reference model so that pretty much concludes his roundup guys and I wouldn't know your thoughts about which one would you pick especially in the 57 XD batch Andy 5700 I'm personally leaning towards the ROG GPU because it's the fastest among the rest but it's also the quietest or relatively quiet doesn't run as loud as

The power color GPU but the downside is that it consumes a lot of power with the 5700 I think I'm leaning towards the sapphire GPU because it's cheaper than a tough graphics card it also performs identically to a GPU as well but it's not significant compared to the reference graphics card from AMD I'll definitely make sure to leave links in the description down below for all these GPUs if I find any online so make sure to check the description if you're interested in any of these let me know what you guys think about this roundup in the comments down below

Certainly let me know your pick as well i'm eber with harbor connects thank you so much for watching make sure to subscribe and hit that notification button when we pump out a new video i'm signing off and i'll talk to you guys in the next one
