Sapphire NITRO+ RX 5700 XT 8G Graphics Card Review

AMD’s shiny new toy has arrived but there’s still plenty of Radeon 5000 stocks to clear. For gamers who just want a good deal, I’ve updated my review of the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 5700 XT to reflect its performance position in the current landscape.

Given its new price, its definitely great value. Check it out in this #B2G re-review(2)_final.jpg.

We’ll switch things up and open with the power and temperature behavior of the graphics card first. We use Final Fantasy XV Benchmark to simulate a gaming workload but for those looking extreme loads, we do put our cards through Kombustor on first installation for stress testing to check for stability. For our reviews though, we use Final Fantasy XV to simulate a true gaming scenario. Power draw is captured inline via PCAT or Powenetics so no other components affects readings. Readings are taken from the average 15 min idle readings for both load and idle.

Let’s take a look at clock behavior versus temperature:

I had to stretch the table here to show you the dips we have down to 1200Mhz. These dips seem to align to scene transitions in the scene but regardless these are momentary and the run itself doesn’t show any stuttering. With regards to temperature, we see the card idle at 42*C as the charts above show so running our workload we see the temperatures climb from 42 to 67*C. The temperature reading the the average taken from a continuous workload of 15 mins. Overall, this is great to see and Sapphire did a great job tuning their fans while keeping the card cool.
