AMD Radeon RX 5700 / RX 5700XT Linux Gaming Benchmarks
Written by Michael Larabel in Graphics Cards on 7 July 2019. Page 7 of 7. 92 Comments

Even with the RadeonSI OpenGL support not being most optimal yet for Navi, the Radeon RX 5700/5700XT do at their lowered launch prices deliver incredible value already over the NVIDIA Turing competition. Here's a look at how the competition plays out on performance-per-dollar with these cards:

The Radeon RX 5700 series offers leading value along with the RX Vega 56/64. As the Navi Linux driver support matures, the Radeon RX 5700 series presumably will be able to surpass Vega for the best Linux graphics card value for gamers. Even with the RadeonSI driver not operating at its full performance potential for the hardware, already the performance-per-Watt of Navi is quite compelling against NVIDIA's Turing graphics processors.

That's where things stand today. Stay tuned for more Navi Linux benchmarks as the Vulkan driver support materializes along with their packaged driver as well as continued RX 5700/5700XT benchmarks over the weeks ahead as this RadeonSI Gallium3D support matures.
