In the original version of this review, we compared it to the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2070. Priced at Php28000 back then versus the higher priced RTX 2070 Super, the only argument for the RTX 2070 Super was if you were in favor of the NVIDIA software ecosystem or use raytracing.
As of this posting, the Radeon 6800 and 6800 XT has been released and prices for the Radeon 5700XT and the entire 5000-series Radeons are dropping in prices. With NVIDIA already clearing their RTX 20 series stocks, the AMD is looking to do the same and for those that want to scoop up these deals, a refreshed look is definitely a good reference hence why I re-did this review.
The charts shows us that the RTX 30 is indeed more powerful and the Radeon 6000 is promising two-fold performance leap from the RX 5700 XT. The challenge for both new-gen cards is supplies. AMD and NVIDIA are both suffering from volumes and its going to be hard to see these cards in the wild. For the rest of us though, the sale prices of the 5700XT is a great relief particularly if AMD’s supply issue causes massive price surges.
As it is, if you don’t need NVIDIA Broadcast and its WFH or streamer benefits as well as raytracing then the Radeon RX 5700 XT is a great option and with Sapphire offering an excellently-built 5700 XT with their Nitro + model, its a great choice for value-oriented gamers.
PCHUB currently lists the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT at Php22990, a compelling price particularly for brands that are still yet to drop their prices for their RTX 2060. The Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT crushes the 2060 Super and is a pure gaming performance option for anyone looking to jump to 1440p or go faster in 1080p. Sapphire did a great job with the build quality as well and should satisfy a lot of gamers.
