PowerColor RX 5700 XT Red Devil: Our Summary And Conclusion
Performance Summary: The PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT Red Devil performed very well throughout our entire battery of tests. Whether using the OC (220W) or Silent (180W) BIOS setting, the card’s performance typically lands somewhere in between the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super, depending on the application. It is faster than the GeForce RTX 2060 Super more often than not, but typically trails the more expensive RTX 2070 Super by a small margin, save for a couple of games (like F1 2019) where the 5700 XT pulls ahead. Versus AMD’s reference Radeon RX 5700 XT, PowerColor’s Red Devil is clearly the higher-performer, but it is also significantly quieter, offers lower temperatures, and it’s more over-clockable too.GeForce RTX 2070 Super. The standard edition PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT Red Devil, which doesn’t include a mouse pad, arrives at $439. At those prices, PowerColor’s offering commands an approximate 10% - 13% premium over AMD’s reference design, which we think is absolutely worth it. The card is wider to accommodate the massive triple-fan cooler, so you’ll have to sacrifice and additional slot with this card, but the additional investment nets a faster, quieter, cooler, more-overclockable GPU, with customizable RGB lighting and a more aggressive overall aesthetic. To us, it’s very easy to justify the PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT Red Devil’s price premium – this card is really nice and is an upgrade over AMD's model.
