XFX RX 5700XT THICC II Graphics Card Review

Game Testing

Ashes of the Singularity

Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.

The XFX RX 5700XT THICC II dominates Ash of the Singularity achieving over 60FPS from 1080P all the way to 4K.

At 1440P the THICC II is a mere 1.4FPS behind the RTX 2070 Super.

At 4K the gap between the RX 5700XT and the RTX 2070 Super shrinks to 0.4 FPS with the THICC II hitting 63.6 FPS.

Far Cry 5

Anything can happen. Everything will.

Welcome to Hope County, Montana, land of the free and the brave, but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult—known as The Project at Eden’s Gate—that is threatening the community’s freedom. Stand up to the cult’s leaders, Joseph Seed, and the Heralds, as you spark the fires of resistance that will liberate the besieged community.

The THICC II continues to excel with it averaging 53FPS at 4K in Far Cry 5 and being well above 60FPS at 1080P/1440P.

Like other benchmarks, the RX 5700XT is neck and neck with the RTX 2070 Super.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

In the epic sequel to the award-winning Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, go behind enemy lines to forge an army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. Experience how the award-winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth.

Another strong showing in 1080P/1440P in Shadow of War with averages of 116/77 FPS. At 4K is struggles a little averaging only 46 FPS.

Comparing the THICC II with other cards we find it performing on par with RTX 2060 Super’s and RTX 2070s in Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Experience Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.

Again, we find the RX 5700XT dominating 1080P/1440P with averaging well above 60FPS. At 4K we fall a little short of our 60FPS goal with an average FPS of 41.

At 1440P in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, we see the THICC II break-out from the RTX 2060 Super’s and just sitting a few frames from the RTX 2070 Super.

Just like in 1440P the THICC II is sitting a mere 3-4 FPS from the RTX 2070 Super.

Tom Clancy’s The Division

We live in a complex world. The more advanced it gets, the more vulnerable it becomes. We’ve created a house of cards: remove just one, and everything falls apart.

Black Friday – a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, these agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society.

When society falls, we rise.

The RX 5700XT THICC II excels in The Division benchmark with great scores across the board. Even at 4K, it scores a respectful 53.7 FPS.

Comparing to our other benchmark the RX 5700XT is near the top of the charts. This is partly due to some of the benchmarks running on an 8700K as The Division favors the extra cores on the 9900K.
