What you need to know

  • AMD's new Radeon RX 5700 GPUs are expected to be available starting July 7.
  • The base Radeon RX 5700 will be priced at $380, while the beefier Radeon RX 5700 XT will cost $450.
  • The new Radeon cards are launching the same day as AMD's 3rd Gen Ryzen processors.

AMD took to its next-gen gaming event at E3 2019 to show off some more details around its upcoming Radeon 5700 series graphics cards, including prices and their release date. If you've been waiting to get your hands on the new cards based on AMD's Navi architecture, they'll be available starting July 7 for $380 or $450, depending on which one you go with.

The Radeon RX 5700 series is made up of two cards so far: the base 5700 and the 5700 XT. The 5700 XT sits on top at $450, toting a total of 40 compute units, up to 9.75 teraflops of power, and 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. The base RX 5700, meanwhile, powers things down a notch with 36 compute units and 7.95 teraflops of power, but with the same 8GB of GDDR6 memory.

At its Computex reveal for the new Radeon cards, AMD stated that, when compared to its prior-gen Vega architecture, the new Navi-based cards feature, on average, 1.25 times the performance per clock and 1.5 times higher performance per watt. On stage, AMD showed the RX 5700 XT competing admirably against an NVIDIA RTX 2070 graphics card, while the base RX 5700 is meant to compete more with the RTX 2060.

With their July 7 launch, the Radeon RX 5700 cards will release alongside AMD's new 3rd Gen Ryzen processors as well.

You'll have to wait a few more weeks to get your hands on AMD's new Radeon cards and Ryzen chips, but we'd expect preorders to go up shortly ahead of their launch.

  • Interesting they switched to GDDR6 considering how hard they were pushing HBM2
  • Seems likely with the timing that the custom Scarlett hardware may be based on these two cards.
  • In some way. It's based on the Zen 2 and Navi architectures, which currently are Ryzen 3000 and RX 5700. Custom variations but similar under the hood.
  • looking good. I just got the amd rx 5950 one of these should be a big step up for me!
  • AMD is killing it lately. They really are coming back in a big way. I know I'm getting an and cpu my next build. IDK about graphics card but they are looking good.
