Synthetic Testing

The hardware used to benchmark the XFX RX 5700XT THICC II is:

  • Gigabyte Z390 AORUS Pro Motherboard
  • Intel 9900K Processor @ Stock
  • 2 x 8GB Thermaltake TOUGHRAM @ 3200MHz
  • Crucial P1000 M.2 NVMe
  • Cooler Master M240P Mirage AIO Cooler
  • Corsair HX750 PSU
  • Open Benchtable
  • Microsoft Windows 10

The motherboard’s BIOS has been reset to default settings with the exception of enabling XMP of our ram.

Futuremark 3DMark

3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your PC and mobile devices in one app. Whether you're gaming on a smartphone, tablet, notebook, or a desktop gaming PC, 3DMark includes a benchmark specifically designed for your hardware.

The THICC II also does very well in 3DMark’s Timespy benchmarking about 5-10% behind the RTX 2070 Super

Futuremark VRMark

The performance requirements for VR games are much higher than for typical PC games. So if you're thinking about buying an HTC Vive or an Oculus Rift, wouldn't you like to know that your PC is ready for VR?

VRMark includes three VR benchmark tests that run on your monitor (no headset required) or on a connected HMD. At the end of each test, you'll see whether your PC is VR ready, and if not, how far it falls short.

Orange Room Test - The Orange Room benchmark shows the impressive level of detail that can be achieved on a PC that meets the recommended hardware requirements for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. If your PC passes this test, it's ready for the two most popular VR systems available today.

Cyan Room Test - Cyan Room is a DirectX 12 benchmark. It features a large, complex scene and many eye-catching effects. Cyan Room shows how using an API with less overhead can help developers deliver impressive VR experiences even on modest PC systems.

Blue Room Test - The Blue Room is a much more demanding test. It's ideal for benchmarking the latest graphics cards. With its massive 5K rendering resolution and spectacular volumetric lighting effects, the Blue Room sets the bar for future hardware generations.

Another strong performance from the RX 5700XT crushing both the Orange/Cyan Room and doing well in the Blue Room hitting an average of 54 FPS.

Unigine Heaven

Heaven Benchmark is a GPU-intensive benchmark that hammers graphics cards to the limits. This powerful tool can be effectively used to determine the stability of a GPU under extremely stressful conditions, as well as check the cooling system's potential for maximum heat output.

The benchmark immerses a user into a magical steampunk world of shiny brass, wood, and gears. Nested on flying islands, a tiny village with its cozy, sun-heated cobblestone streets, and a majestic dragon on the central square gives a true sense of adventure. An interactive experience with fly-by and walk-through modes allows for exploring all corners of this world powered by the cutting-edge UNIGINE Engine that leverages the most advanced capabilities of graphics APIs and turns this bench into a visual masterpiece.

In Unigine Heaven at 1080P, we find the RX 5700XT sitting in the middle of our graph in between the RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 Super.

Not much changing at 4K as it’s still sitting among the RTX 2060 Supers and RTX 2070.

Unigine Superposition

Extreme performance and stability test for PC hardware: video card, power supply, cooling system. Check your rig in stock and overclocking modes with a real-life load! It also includes interactive experience in a beautiful, detailed environment.

A lone professor performs dangerous experiments in an abandoned classroom, day in and day out. Obsessed with inventions and discoveries beyond the wildest dreams, he strives to prove his ideas.

Once you come to this place in the early morning, you would not meet him there. The eerie thing is a loud bang from the laboratory heard a few moments ago. What was that? You have the only chance to cast some light upon this incident by going deeply into the matter of quantum theory: thorough visual inspection of the professor's records and instruments will help to lift the veil on the mystery.

In the highly demanding Superposition benchmark, the THICC to manages to hit an average of 31 FPS which is improved to 54FPS in the 4K optimized run
