How well can the Radeon RX 5800 XT run games
14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon RX 5800 XT will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 5800 XT get on latest AAA 2020 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 990.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 5800 XT can run Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at 1080p and predict it will return strong frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 215 FPS, Medium: 170 FPS, High: 114 FPS and Ultra: 82 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Microsoft Flight Simulator returns a good 77 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the Radeon RX 5800 XT will run the upcoming game Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to a good performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 164 FPS, Medium: 129 FPS, High: 87 FPS and Ultra: 62 FPS. Another game tested was Microsoft Flight Simulator, L: 154FPS, M: 121FPS, H: 82FPS, U: 58FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Assassins Creed: Valhalla, wih estimates revealing L: 94FPS, M: 80FPS, H: 69FPS, U: 47FPS at 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 5800 XT we get the impression that it is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.

How many years will the Radeon RX 5800 XT graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 5800 XT in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 5800 XT? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 20% better and can meet 998 of their recommended requirements.

Radeon RX 5800 XT Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The Radeon RX 5800 XT is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the first (1.0) Revision of the RDNA 2 Architecture. These specs are yet to be confirmed.


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


This variant of the Big Navi 10 XL GPU features 40 Compute Units activated, offering XX Shader Processing Units, XX TMUs and XX ROPs. The GPU features a XX MHz base clock speed and up to XX MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated XX% faster than a Radeon RX Vega 64. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the GeForce RTX 2080.


GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at XX MHz, rising to XX MHz with boost clock enabled.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of XX GB/s.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to XXGB. 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 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, XXGB 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 225W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.


Performance
AMD Radeon RX 5800 XT competes with GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, which is available for $599.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 5800 XT performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 2070.


System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 5800 XT is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 4K. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
