The only reviews I can find are at techpowerup.
The 5700 actual game performance overclock was 1.5% vs the 2060super actual game performance uplift at about 8%.
Any good comprehensive overclocking reviews for both these cards? Preferably a straight up overclocked vs overclocked in the same review ,using the same settings,games and computer setup.

Thanks

I was just looking at the TechPowerUp review of the RX 5700 for this same reason tonight.

I can get an EVGA triple-slot single-fan RTX 2060 Black for $299 - $20 MIR, or an ASRock Reference blower RX 5700 for $329.99 right now @ Newegg, or a RTX 2060 Super for around $410-420, same price as a AIB RX 5700 XT.

I want the card for mining too, which, I hear, Navi 10 is not really good for that, and there's issues right now with OpenCL drivers, and even working at all with DC GPGPU applications.

Edit: I see, you're asking for OC versus OC comparisons, not Stock versus Stock as in the TPU review. With the idea that the NV card might have more headroom. (Really, the RX 5700 non-XT probably has a lot more headroom too, just that AMD "locked them down", quite a bit as I understand it.)

I'm looking to replace my two sets of RX 570 cards (one 2x 8GB, one 2x 4GB), primarily for mining, 2D 4K UHD display, and video watching (4K YT VP9), and some DC GPU apps too, and maybe a scant fraction of PC gaming, maybe at 4K UHD if it's feasible on whatever card I can afford next month.

Secondarily, I was looking for a "good" card, to pair up with an R5 1600 CPU @ 3.80Ghz, 16GB DDR4-2667@3000, and some RGB fan bling (tempered glass budget case), for a friend's kid. Something impressive, but not horribly expensive. Was thinking that $299 EVGA Black RTX 2060. PSU is also an issue for that build, I threw in a Corsair CX450, which has a single 6+2-pin, and wouldn't be good for the 8-pin PLUS 6-pin on the RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT.

(Is there an RX 5700 that only needs an 8-pin PCI-E, like the RTX 2060?)

Edit: Also spied earlier, a Gigabyte triple-fan RTX 2070 (non-Super) for ~$410 + ship, REFURB. Was that a good deal? It's sold out now.

I guess the 2060 Super, is basically similar to an RTX 2070, so if one could get a "real" 2070, rather than the 2060 Super, would one be better off?

A 2070 is slightly better (2-3% IIRC) than a 2060 Super but unless they've dropped the starting price, most require a rebate to get down to the custom 2060Super prices. $450-30 rebates etc.. One benefit of the 2060 super will be the cards are smaller on average than the 2070 cards. I also would not touch a refurbed 2070 which likely was a space invaders bug card earlier in the year.

I'm not impressed with those single fan cards for the 1660ti and 2060 models but for a cheap build, you're probably looking at nvidia with the power contraints and $280 price is hard to beat, the negative being noise. Also those cards are 3 slot cards with the big heatsink if building in a itx case.

I thought that was only a problem with the GPU on the RTX 2080 and 2080ti, that the RTX 2070 was a lesser GPU chip, that didn't have that problem? Or am I mistaken, and the RTX 2070 and 2080 share a GPU chip, and it's the RTX 2080ti that is it's own chip?

2070 uses a different GPU than the 2080.

2070 = TU106
2080 = TU104
2080Ti = TU102

But, I have not personally heard of any space invader 2070's. Only 2080's and 2080Ti chips.

i've only played with superposition but i can get my ref 5700 on 1080p extreme from stock of 4400 to 5096 using the AMD more Power Tool. At that point im cooling limited and my card clocks in the 2020 to 205- range. Power draw around 230 watts.


edit: its worth noting i have a potato processor ( 3770K @ 4.1) when looking at other reviews .

I haven’t seen any, but it’s probably because there isn’t much point in running an OC on a 5700 right now. Some of that might be fixable if AMD doesn’t lock things down as much, but I suspect that higher memory clocks are needed to gain meaningful performance.

you're not going to get a decent review of the 5700 vs 2060 Super showing overclock vs overclock because the 5700 overclock is capped by AMD's software

someone needs to use the SoftPowerPlay mod and then the 5700 gets clocks similar to 5700 XT

Similar comparison but close enough with both cards overclocked done at wccftech.

This is 5700xt vs RTX 2060 super.

When combined with the latest drivers from Nvidia and when comparing reference to reference, the results are basically a tie where they trade blows. Benchmarks begin at 2 min 48sec in. Note they include Forza Horizon 4 which shows a striking improvement.

5700xt was OCed to 2050mhz.

I guess finewine doesn't just apply to AMD cards anymore. The RX 5700 would lose to a RTX 2060 super as a result when both cards are OC'ed.

Thanks for your input and information.
