Today, we’re going to take a look at the AMD Radeon RX 5700 graphics card. In essence, the more affordable version of the RX 5700 XT, which has received quite a lot of positive feedback. The second of AMD’s Navi 10 GPUs the RX 5700 is a direct competition of the RTX 2060. Following the trend, it’s basically the XT with less compute units, less GPU cores, a slower boost clock, and costs $50 cheaper. Here in the Philippines, the 5700 XT retails for around PhP24,000, while the 5700 is priced at around PhP20,000. Hopefully with our tests, we’ll be able to answer the question, is it worth getting this one over the XT? or is it better to just hold your purchase, save up, and just buy its more powerful sibling? Design The reference model of the RX 5700 uses a single blower-type cooler, with all of its component…
