While AMD’s E3 2019 Horizon Gaming even will begin in a few hours, it appears that the first official gaming benchmarks have been leaked for its upcoming AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card. In addition, the specs for this new GPU have also been leaked online.
Let’s start with the specs. The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT will feature 40 compute units with up to 9.75 TFLOPs, 8GB of DDR6 video memory with up to 1905Mhz boost clock. Its default base clock will be at 1605Mhz and its game mode will target 1755Mhz.
And now for the official gaming benchmarks. According to the red team, the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT will be faster than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2070. In most cases the performance difference will be 3-5%, though there are some cases in which the gap will be as high as 22%.
Interestingly enough, AMD has also included some games in which the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is slower than the RTX 2070 (like Shadow of the Tomb Raider).
We expect AMD to reveal more official details during its upcoming E3 2019 Horizon Gaming event, so stay tuned for more.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
