AMD recently revealed its new lineup of next-gen GPUs during the recently-held Computex 2019 expo in Taiwan and during E3 2019. The AMD Radeon RX 5700-series powered by its brand-new Navi architecture.

There will be two new GPUs in this new series, with the RX 5700 XT rivalling that of NVIDIA’s RTX 2070 and the RX 5700 comparable to that of the RTX 2060, along with a slightly more powerful 50th-anniversary edition of the RX 5700 XT.

According to benchmark tests, the new AMD GPUs are ten per cent faster and more powerful in churning out better frame rates while gaming.
