AMD Radeon Pro W5700X: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon Pro W5700X

Summary

AMD started Radeon Pro W5700X sales 11 December 2019 at a recommended price of $999. This is RDNA 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 7 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 16 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 448.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Quad-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 305 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 205 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.84 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
