Hey everyone, I hope you're having a wonderful day! I have an issue on my hands and I can't seem to resolve it. I've been looking around for a few days or so and had my heart set on purchasing a 2060s for my build, however last minute I saw something about AMD's RX 5700-XT gpu. I read a few things about it and watched a few benchmark videos and it looks to outperform the 2060s for just a few extra dollars. I also noticed, though, that the gpu ran (from what I could tell) about 15*C hotter than the 2060s at max settings. I can't decide which one I want to purchase and if the temperature of the 5700-XT could be an issue for me later down the road.

 

Thanks for the help! :)

Get a 5700 XT - it performs close to a 2070 Super and much better than the 2060 S. As for heat, get a Sapphire Pulse or Power Color Red Dragon and you're good. The MSI Mech is also okay. Temps depend on the GPU cooler

Alright sounds great! So should I be concerned about the general overheating of the gpu or not really? I know you mentioned "it depends on the cooler" which yes, of course you're right, however I noticed the overheat seemed to be a trend and am wondering if this could be an issue down the road?

Depend on which cooler but one thing you need to remember is that Nvidia card don't show Junction Temperature, use Edge Temperature value for AMD Navi GPU if you want to compare temperature.

No, get a good cooler like the Pulse or Red Dragon and enjoy

Both of those models have similar thermal performances to the Gigabyte Gaming OC suggested by the OP.

 

OP: pick either of those or use the graphics cooler tier list to help make your decision easier.

 

 

But yes, definitely go 5700XT over the RTX 2060 Super if you can.

The 5700 XT blows the RTX 2060s out of the water and if you plan to play RTX games the 2060s is not a good option ayway.

Hmm, I didn't even know that. So basically if I want to play RTX games I would need to get at least a 2070?
