AORUS RX 5700 XT 8G Review

General Impressions & Conclusion

There you have it. The Aorus RX 5700 XT is not what I would call a vanilla RX 5700 XT, but certainly not the most exciting GPU to come from Aorus. That said, the RX 5700 XT doesn’t seem to need much as the reference RX 5700 XT is quite capable. What the people over at Aorus have put together is a better cooler than the reference model and a touch of the Aorus aesthetic identity. I was and remain a little concerned with some GPU hot spot temperature readings in the late 80s/early 90s (Celsius) however that went away when using the card in a PC chassis as opposed to a test bench.

What that culminates into is some potent performance for the price. This may not be the most affordable RX 5700 XT on the market, (that honor seems to go to XFX time and time again) but it is one of the fastest and most appealing for sure. Noise levels are always a concern, but they were more than acceptable as I had a hard time hearing the fan noise over the rest of the system fans.

AMD has done a stellar job at closing the gap in performance/watt metric against NVIDA. Compared to the RTX 2060 Super the RX 5700 XT is measurably faster and it retails for a similar if not lower price than. Just between the pricing and the performance this one is a winner.

Overall, it’s quite difficult to find something to dislike here. As my first foray into a moderately powerful AMD GPU in ages, I can’t but come out impressed by what is on offer. If you’re not in any way moved by any of the DXR effects and lighting in present games, there’s little to no reason not to consider the Aorus RX 5700 XT. In terms of performance vs. price it’s incredibly strong and most certainly worth your consideration.
