To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A review is several parts: Firstly, do NOT trust any Amazon Promo, especially if it is redeem by code. This product had a redeem code Promo. When I follow the instructions on Amazon Australia site, the company state - This product was not purchased from us, so we cannot provide the code. Reasonable. So then you try contacting Amazon Customer Service ... Secondly, I end up having to simplify the problem to single sylable words before anyone seems to understand what is happening and that they (Amazon Australia) is breaking the law. I am then promised they will resolve the issue and contact me back within 72 hours. A week later I have had no contact so I contact them again ... with same result, they will resolve and contact me back! NOP! A week later I try for the third time and am consistantly told that it is not Amazon that is at fault, but the third party for not giving codes away for products they did not sell!
Amazon Australia, YOU ARE CRAP!!!
Finally, the Radeon RX5700 XT is an Awesome product and I do thoroughly recommend it. Just NEVER buy it or anything else from Amanzon!
I have had this card for three days now. I bought it to replace a very old (but still functional) Sapphire R9 380.
How far technology has come
At almost exactly the same wattage, this card performs roughly 225% better than the R9 380. I have had no blackscreens and no driver issues (yet).
It is also noticeably quieter compared to my old card. With my headphones on, I can't hear a thing.
I have done an absurd amount of research on which 5700 XT to buy. If you want to know my opinions on any 5700 xt model, reply to this review and I'll give my two cents. There are some very good and very bad options out there right now. (Stay away from MSI Evoke and all XFX models)
I would give 5 stars, but the price of this card in the UK is borderline theft. I assume prices will drop as new technology comes. maybe some trade deals and less demand for this chip will make this card cheaper over the coming few months
Got the 5700 XT as an upgrade from my three year old GTX 970 and it’s a massive improvement. Fancied going team red as the value proposition compared with the 2070 Super was far better.
Frame rates for all the games I play have trebled on 1440p, all for pretty much the same power draw. I’ve had only very minor issues with drivers, always fixed when I get the latest ones downloaded. The fans are quiet at low speed but do have an audible hum as the temperatures rise.
A word on the temperatures - I have a reasonably well ventilated mATX case and the card has hit 90c after a couple of hours of graphic intense games like Red Dead 2. In my opinion the stock fan profile isn’t good enough to cool the card properly. Whilst AMD have said these are safe temperatures to have the card running at, I wasn’t very comfortable with it.
I’d recommend changing the fan profile slightly - only rising it by about 10% - and the temperatures decrease to the high 70’s which is fine. I’ve read a lot about the card being able to take less voltage through undervolting - I haven’t tried this though.
Finally got it working after 4 hours struggling with Windows to get it to boot. It wasn’t the graphics card but windows kept trying to boot using the old NVIDIA driver despite the fact that I had removed it 4 times! Heads up if you come from NVIDIA then windows will punish you. Remove the driver completely and ensure windows is using its default vga driver prior to fitting this AMD card. I also had to do a BIOS reset so not sure if that also solved my problem.
OK first impressions? Only tried it for a short while so far but this graphics card is simply stunning! It’s been a while since I updated my card coming from an old GeForce GTX 660. Luckily my 850 watt PSU had two 6+2 wires as that was an oversight on my part so you might want to check your PSU first as this card uses a 8 and 6 pin power connector. Basically you need two 6 + 2 wires.
I tried the graphics card on Elite Dangerous at 1440P and also 4K and at ultra settings and the game frame rate was soo incredibly smooth with stunning graphics. I haven’t overclocked the card yet so it was running at it’s default 1700MHz clock speed but the initial testing was impressive.
Update: 24/5/20. After owning the card for a week and playing several games at 4K I can seriously recommend this card. I haven’t had any driver issues nor any instability. The card runs solid even overclocked. Best graphics card I’ve had. Not sure why some people are complaining about driver issues as I haven’t experienced any issues at all so don’t be put off by negative reviews. I am using this graphics card in a system which is 9 years old running Windows 10. The AMD Radeon software is excellent and allows you to control and monitor the graphics card based on the games you have installed so you can tweak various overclock settings as needed. I’ve now got Elite running in overclock mode with 2100MHz set on the GPU and with max video settings in elite in getting back 78FPS! Overall I wouldn’t hesitate buying it again knowing what this card is capable of over the last week.
My only other advice is check the price you pay even prior to dispatch. I ordered this card on Saturday and it was at £387. Then I noticed later that day the card was reduced to £360! Amazon wouldn’t refund the difference so I cancelled it and just reordered it at the lower price as it hadn’t yet shipped! For £360 I would seriously consider this card as I wouldn’t bother buying an NVIDIA 2070 super for another £200 or so. YouTube videos actually shows this card is very close to the 2070 super so it’s definitely well worth going for this card providing you don’t want Ray Tracing which tbh after careful research I didn’t think it was worth the extra expense as only 15 games so far are supported.
I was really surprised at how difficult of a time with this I had. Constant crashes and driver issues from day one and no matter what I did, it didnt resolve the issue. I really wanted to like this card after many years of nvidia ripping us off, but unfortunately I got a 2070 super after returning this card.
This card is cool, quiet, neutrally coloured, and the RGB accent on the Gigabyte logo is subtle but nice.
I bought this card after viewing countless reviews and written articles on the various RX 5700 XT models, after it was praised for it's excellent value, stability, efficiency, cooling, and size. I am very pleased with my purchase.
The backplate on this model is metal, and with the included thermal pads this adds extra cooling and also rigidity to the card. No nasty sag in my case!
The RX 5700 XT is a powerful card, capable of 1440p on all titles, and 4K on most without problems. It is one third the cost of the current RTX 2080ti, but is easily two thirds as powerful, making it a very good value card.
I bought this GPU to replace my previous MSI RX 5700 (non-xt version) which had a single fan design.
This GPU is so much better in every single way, it doesn't throttle at all, in fact it runs very quiet even under load. You can probably overclock this card quite a bit, however I prefer lower temps which is better for the card's life.
I find that the 10/15% performance gain over the standard 5700 actually has a big impact on the gaming experience, I did experience some lag spikes and low performance after a few hours with the 5700 (probably also due to thermal throttling), here everything is buttery smooth.
All in all, I recommend spending a bit more to get a decently cooled card, which will last a lot longer and perform better in that time.
der Einbau war doch einfacher als bei der Sapphiere Vega 64 die Gefühlt doppelt so schwer war wie diese Gigabyt RX 5700 XT, liegt vermutlich an der großzügigen LED Beleuchtung, in dem Punkt hat Gigabyt nicht viel zu bieten , lediglich der Schriftzug macht schön blink blink, was völlig ausreicht. Aber wer die volle Jahrmarkt Beleuchtung mag , für die gibt es die RGB Fu8sion 2.0, mit dieser Software kann man die Beleuchtung der Grafikkarte, Tastatur, Speicher Mainboard Kopfhörer.. ec.ec. alles synchronisieren, Pulsieren, Tanzen … oder auch ausschalten ;-) selbstverständlich funktioniert das nur mit den hauseigenen Produkten, wo kommen wir hin wenn sie damit ihre Logitech Maus ansteuern könnten, das wäre zu einfach.
Viel kann ich noch nicht über die G. Karte sagen, da noch einige Tools fehlen zum auszulesen, bis dahin muss der Radion AMD Treiber herhalten, der recht ordentlich funktioniert und sogar Tuning-Steuerung für Dummis eingebaut hat, wie z.b. automatisches Untervolting oder Übertaktung der GPU mit nur einem klick, feine Sache. Ich kann auch sehen wie schnell die Lüfter sich drehen, aber höre sie nicht. Geschlossener Rechner 38 dB offen 39-40 dB,
Es soll auch eine „Aorus Engine“ Software geben, dahinter befindet sich lediglich ein alter AMD Treiber, was soll das Gigabayt ? Wie immer reift das Produkt beim Kunden. Auf der Original Webseite erfahre ich von einer „LED“ Leistungsanzeige für PCI-E-Stromversorgung, die erst aktiv wird wenn etwas nicht ordnungsgemäß funktioniert. „Licht an“, wenn kein Netzkabel angeschlossen ist und umgekehrt, sowie bei abnormale Versorgung blinkt es. Wobei wir den Punkt „abnormal“ nochmal klären müssen, ist die Versorgung dann zu hoch oder zu gering ?, das sagt dir dann das Licht.
Angeschlossen sind 2x 28 Zoll 4K Monitore von Samsung in WQHD Auflösung, läuft alles problemlos. Einen wahren Leistungsschub gegenüber der Sapphiere Vega 64 hatte ich nicht erwartet, bei Betrachtung diverser Games Test, liegt die RX 5700 XT in Augenhöhe mit der RTX 2070 S von Nvidia und bei Battlefield V sogar über die RTX 2080 . da sage ich gut gemacht AMD. Der Preis von 449€ ist zwar nicht in Ordnung, aber immer noch besser als die doppelt so teure RTX 2080. Also soweit alles richtig gemacht. Klare Kaufempfehlung.
This graphics card is powerful, and is more than capable of handling any modern title at high or ultra settings (1080p), however it is not without its faults. This is by no means a reflection on Gigabyte as it appear this issue is common across all of the Navi cards by AMD. Initially, upon purchase, the card performed well, but whilst gaming would stutter. This has been identified by AMD as 'aggressive down-clocking', most likely due to thermals. This issue has not yet been fully resolved by driver updates. However, I have managed to solve the issue myself by adding an AIO liquid cooler to my CPU (at not insignificant expense), which uses exhaust air out of the case to cool the CPU. In simple terms, I've stopped my CPU venting heat into the case of my PC, and the lower case temperature has prevented the graphics card from circulating already warm air and getting hot enough to carry on this aggressive thermal throttling. As a result, I've ended up with top notch performance. My only advice would to be carefully consider the air flow of your existing or prospective build. If you can avoid the upper temperature threshold, then absolutely, this card is fantastic. If you're in any doubt, I'd have a hard think about whether you can keep this card cool enough to prevent it suddenly down-clocking and reducing your performance, and ultimately enjoyment of games.
For a new build, I was debating whether to get a Nvidia card (2060 or 2070 - Super) or switch to the Radeon cards. I have used Nvidia for a loong time, this is my first Radeon card. So far I am very impressed, I coupled this with a Ryzen 5 3600 and a Seasonic Focus GX 850 and playing games (Doom Eternal for example) is just amazing at maximum details in 1440p. I play with headphones so I am not at all bothered by noise, but it doesn't seem noisy to me if I remove them during gameplay. No problem with drivers either.
All in all I am so far happy with my purchase, I was not convinced about the RTX capability on Nvidia and having watched a ton of reviews I think the RX 5700 XT is better value for the money compared to the cards I mentioned above.
