AMD probably stole the show at E3 2019 by introducing some powerful graphics pushers and number crunchers that only a gamer would relate to. With the next-generation Radeon family — RX 5700, 5700 XT and 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, AMD takes the 7nm Navi line of GPUs to the next level with 8GB of GDDR6 video RAM that can pump out an insane up to 10.14 teraflops of sheer GPU performance that can be overclocked with a 7-phase digital clock up to 1980 MHz and make Nvidia’s engineers bite on their nails. To be more specific, AMD demoed its 5700 XT beast against Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2070 only to beat the latter by 20fps. Not only are the new gaming cards power-full by up to 1.25x times per clock, they are also power efficient by up to 1.5x times per watt in comparison to the previous gen. AMD boasts of superior gaming with 4K HDR @144Hz and up to 31 percent better / reduced response times. The three cards will be priced between $379 (approx Rs. 27,000) and $499 (approx Rs. 35,000) and will start seeing the shelves between July and September. AMD also showcased the world’s first 16-core mainstream desktop processor, the Ryzen 9 3950X at the E3, which together with their new GPU line can help gamers skip their lunch.
