AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT And RX 5700 Review: 7nm Navi Debuts

Radeon RX 5700 Series: Far Cry New Dawn and Final Fantasy XV

Next up, we’ve got some benchmark scores from FarCry New Dawn, the latest installment in the storied franchise. Like its predecessors, FarCry New Dawn is a fast-action shooter set in an open world environment with lush visuals and high graphics fidelity. The game takes place in a fictional county in Montana, where a cult has taken over control of the area. We tested all of the graphics cards here at multiple resolutions using Ultra Quality settings to see how they handled this recently-released AAA title.

The Radeon RX 5700 XT falls victim to the GeForce RTX 2060 Super at 1440p, but comes roaring back at 4K to finish just behind the RTX 2070 Super. The Radeon RX 5700 is right in the mix with the GeForce RTX 2060 and Radeon RX Vega 64 at 1440p, but jumps up a couple of positions once the resolution is cranked up to 4K.

Final Fantasy XV v1.2
Freshly Updated With DLSS Support
Deep Learning Super Sampling, or DLSS, is one of the GeForce RTX series’ stand-out features. When employed, DLSS should offer image quality on par with or better than other anti-aliasing techniques, but with a smaller performance hit because the game is typically rendered at a lower resolution before being scaled for the display. The Final Fantasy XV benchmark is one of the few that support DLSS, so we tested it with and without the feature enabled on all of the cards features here...

The GeForce RTX family are the only cards that support DLSS, hence the Radeons are being tested solely with TAA here. With TAA enabled, the Radeon RX 5700 XT edges out the Radeon VII and finished just behind the GeForce RTX 2060 Super. The Radeon RX 5700 doesn't fare quite as well. It handily beats the Radeon RX Vega 64, but loses out to the original GeForce RTX 2060.
