AMD Radeon RX 5700 Series Graphics Cards: Amazing Value and Performance for 1440p Gaming
AMD Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards harness the RDNA gaming architecture, which was built from the ground up for superior performance, scalability and power efficiency, and designed to power the future of PC, console, mobile and cloud-based gaming. The new RDNA architecture supports high-speed GDDR6 memory, provides PCIe 4.0 support, and provides up to 1.25X higher performance-per-clock3 and up to 1.5X higher performance-per-watt over AMD’s previous Graphic Core Next (GCN) architecture4, enabling hyper-realistic, ultra-responsive and high-framerate gaming experiences.
The newest Radeon graphics cards offer powerful new features to elevate 1440p gaming, including:
- Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) – Brings crispness and clarity to in-game visuals that have been softened by other post-process effects in DirectX® 9, 12, and Vulkan® titles. When paired with Radeon GPU upscaling, RIS enables sharp visuals and fluid frame rates on very high-resolution displays.
- FidelityFX – Offers an open-source toolkit for game developers with high-quality post-process effects to help make games look beautiful while offering an optimal balance of visual fidelity and performance. Available on GPUOpen, FidelityFX features Contrast-Adaptive Sharpening (CAS), which draws out detail in low-contrast areas while minimizing artifacts caused by typical image sharpening routines.
- Radeon™ Anti-Lag – Optimized for eSports, improves competitiveness by decreasing input-to-display response times by up to 31 percent5.
