In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 PNY XLR8 Gaming Epic-X RGB Triple Fan 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB.

The RTX 3070 has a 370 MHz higher core clock speed and 68 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 5600 XT. This results in the RTX 3070 providing 155.3 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 3070 has a 370 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 5600 XT and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RTX 3070 providing 23.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 3070 was released less than a year after the RX 5600 XT, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RTX 3070 has 2047 MB more video memory than the RX 5600 XT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 3070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 5600 XT has 288 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 3070, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5600 XT is massively better than the RTX 3070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 PNY XLR8 Gaming Epic-X RGB Triple Fan 8GB has 5888 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 3070 is 10157 and the actual shader performance of the RX 5600 XT is 2336. The RTX 3070 having 7821 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RX 5600 XT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce RTX 3070 PNY XLR8 Gaming Epic-X RGB Triple Fan 8GB requires 220 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 3070 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the RX 5600 XT. The RTX 3070 requires 70 Watts more than the RX 5600 XT to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 3070 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 5600 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3070 PNY XLR8 Gaming Epic-X RGB Triple Fan 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2170. Architecture It equips an Ampere GPU Codenamed GA104 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 212 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides the world's best consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: GA102 GPU The central unit runs at 1500MHz and goes up to 1725MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Third Gen GDDR6 through a 320-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 PNY XLR8 Gaming Epic-X RGB Triple Fan 8GB suggests it will be faster than the Geforce RTX 2070 Super, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 3070 PNY XLR8 Gaming Epic-X RGB Triple Fan 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB is an mid-tier gaming Graphics Card based on the first (1.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.

Architecture
The Navi 10 XL GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5.

GPU
This variant of the Navi 10 XL GPU features 36 Compute Units activated, offering 2304 Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1375 MHz base clock speed and up to 1560 MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated 20% slower than a Radeon RX 5700 8GB. This puts its predicted performance at roughly 20% faster than a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with 6GB high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 192-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of 288 GB/s.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 6GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 1080p Gaming. In some limited scenarios at 1440p resolution, 6GB video memory might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.

Performance
AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB competes with GeForce GTX 1660 Ti which is available for $329.
System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2650 x 1480 but is ideally suited for 1920 x 1080. For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 1080p. We recommend a mid-tier CPU and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
