Some of these graphics cards offer performance very close to each other, while some of them are relatively cheaper and offer great price to performance ratio. Choosing the right graphics card between them can be a very confusing task when you have that many options, and they all offer pretty good performance. So, here I am going to compare these graphics cards based on different factors to let you choose the best graphics card among them based on your specific requirements or needs.

RTX 2060 SUPER vs RX 5700 vs RX 5700XT vs RTX 2070 vs RTX 2060

Here is the comparison between RTX 2060 Super, RTX 2060, RTX 2070, RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT graphics cards based on their specifications, performance, pricing, power consumption and features.

GPU Architecture

Here the RTX 2060, RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2070 are RTX 20 series graphics cards based on the Turing GPU architecture that is built on the 12nm manufacturing process. Also, all these Nvidia GPUs here use the same TU106 GPU Chip or core. The card with highest number of CUDA Cores is RTX 2070 with 2304 CUDA Cores, while the RTX 2060 SUPER is not far behind and comes with 2176 CUDA Cores. On the other hand, Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT are AMD cards based on the Navi GPU architecture and replaces the older GCN instruction set architecture (ISA) with the RDNA. Here RX 5700 XT comes with 2560 Stream Processors and the RX 5700 has got 256 less Stream Processors at 2304. It must be noted that you cannot compare CUDA Cores with Stream Processors because both works in a different manner and have different GPU architecture.

Memory [VRAM]

All these graphics cards except RTX 2060 come with 8GB GDDR6 memory having 256-bit interface, running at 14 Gbps and providing bandwidth of 448 GB/s. The RTX 2060 comes with 6GB GDDR6 memory having 192-bit interface with bandwidth of 336 GB/s. So, in terms of video memory department RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070, RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT are at the same position, while RTX 2060 is at the bottom.

Memory Bandwidth 336 GB/s 448 GB/s 448 GB/s 448 GB/s 448 GB/s

Features

All of these graphics cards support DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.6, Vulkan, OpenCL and FreeSycn, which is a variable refresh rate technology to prevent screen tearing for smooth gameplay without any stutter. The features that are exclusive to these RTX 20 series cards are Real Time Ray Tracing and DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) due to the dedicated RT Cores and Tensor Cores, and the ones that are present in only RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT is the new PCIe 4.0 interface.

None of these cards support multi-GPU configuration (SLI/CrossFire) that allows similar GPUs to be paired together for increased performance, especially in productivity tasks. Here only the RTX 2070 comes with USB Type-C connector that supports VirtualLink for hooking up next generation VR headsets. All these graphics cards are VR ready and support hardware-based encoding and decoding. So, in terms of features, these cards are very well equipped and will not let you down whether in gaming, video editing or workstation tasks.

Gaming Performance

Here are the benchmarks for these graphics cards in popular games at 1440p resolution.

RTX-2060-SUPER-vs-RX-5700-vs-RX-5700-XT-vs-RTX-2070-vs-RTX-2060-Benchmarks

Here you can clearly see that RX 5700 XT is the fastest card here and the second position goes to the RTX 2070. The RTX 2060 Super performs similar to the RTX 2070 and there is not a great difference between them. Also, the RX 5700 beats the RTX 2060 in almost every benchmark, but not by a huge margin.

Power Consumption

The Nvidia cards here have lower powerful consumption compared to their AMD counterparts here. The card with the higher power consumption figure is RX 5700 XT, while the one with lowest is RTX 2060. The power consumption of RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 and RX 5700 is kind of similar at 175W to 180W. For running these cards in your system, you do require a good branded 550W to 600W PSU.

Final Verdict

Well, if I have to pick card here then I would certainly go with the Radeon RX 5700 XT. It is not only faster than the similarly price RTX 2060 Super, but is also faster than the RTX 2070, which is a significantly higher priced card and one segment above the RTX 2060 Super. Also, RX 5700 is faster than the similarly priced RTX 2060. Moreover, you will extra 2GB RAM with RX 5700 that can prove very handy in latest AAA games and for 4K video editing. So, here AMD cards are clearly the winner and they beat RTX cards hands down. If you have any queries regarding them, then you can ask me in the comment section below
