    In the Radeon VII review, the Radeon VII produced 54.5 db in the FurMark test. This time around, the 5700 produced 54.5 db so I would expect that the Radeon VII and 5700 produce identical levels of noise.
    Except for one caveat. The RX Vega 64 is the only GPU present in both reviews. In the Radeon VII review it produced 54.8db, nearly identical to the Radeon VII. In the 5700 review, it produced 61.9 db, significantly louder than the 5700.
    So are the Radeon VII and 5700 identical in noise? Would the Radeon VII also have run at 61.9 db in this test with the 5700? Why the discrepancy with the Vega result? A 13% gain in noise in the identical test with the identical GPU makes it difficult to determine how much noise is actually being generated here.

    The difference in gain is not 13%. dB are not linear but logarithmic.
    Each 3 dB means that the noise doubles, so 61.9 - 54.5 is a difference of 7.5db, meaning that the loudest measure is about 6 times more loud that the quieter one.
    I don't know about the discrepancy in the measurements, but it is quite big to not need a deeper look by the reviewer reporting those numbers.

    Too bad, I would have been interested in the RX 5700 XT but it's way too noisy. Reply

    Wait for the custom version. In a couple of months. Probably. Reply

    I'll probably wait for the water cooled version since this card is too hot and a fan will just make my room 80 degrees fahrenheit within 30 minutes. Sick of all the price gouging from Nvidia and the fact that they release a super before AMD's launch proves it. Despicable company. Reply

    Nice review; I think the 5700Xt stacks up against the 2060 Super and 2070 Super quite nicely.....; Hell, I'd hit it if I could! :) Reply

    The cards were tested on an Intel CPU platform and i understand why. But, I was just wondering if the PCIe 4 switch brought any benefit at all to the cards? Any specific workload/benchmark that can benefit from the increased bandwidth? What are your thoughts on it @Ryan ? Reply

    Aimed at what these days is the midrange segment of the video card market, AMD is looking to carve out a new place for the company Reply

    I love coffee, I love tea, I love Ryan's article on Navi! (Even though it's not finished yet...) Reply

    The 5700s losing in all the Vulkan benchmarks is making me consider hitting that "cancel order" button and go with a 2060/70 Super. AMD should never perform worse in Vulkan against supposedly equally powered competition. Reply
