Hello crew, I update my build with the results that I have with the new GPU AMD RX 5700 XT. As you know results are only for Windows Bootcamp. In few words, I doubled the performances!

My System:

  • MacBook Pro 13" Late 2016 with TouchBar i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD
  • Windows 10 Professional (Build 1903) with Bootcamp

@jefniro versus your previous system, this is a substantial upgrade. And those OpenCL numbers are nuts. Nice going!

Hmmm... so I just ran Unigine Valley on Extreme HD and got the same FPS as you roughly with my Vega 56... Wonder if that relates to the H2D limitation @Mac_editor mentioned. Thats a bit tech for me so off to do some reading up, ran AIDA64 too and got 2200 ish for my Memory Read but the trial doesn't show write...

@jefniro cheers! I assumed thats the setting you had used. I've added my results in my build. How are in game improvements because I fear we are both limited by our CPU's...

@eightarmedpet about the game improvements, I haven't checked it yet. At the moment I have only Forza Horizon 4 for benchmark.

And yes, I think the limitation now is my CPU but I play 1080p with framerate fixed in this moment, maybe next year I will switch to a new 2k monitor, but I will change my MacBook Pro too... so for now I hope I will enjoy my new setup! 😀

@jefniro I'm sure you will enjoy it! One thing that doesnt get mentioned a lot with the Navi cards is they have some sort of fancy built in upscaling with minimal performance drop (around 5% I think), meaning you could have in game settings of 1080 but upscale to a 4K monitor via Radeon settings and it will look good and perform well (compared ot native versions of both res).
I'll be grabbing the next gen Mac mini once its released (only expect a minor CPU upgrade) and will keep my Macbook for travel - Desktop for home, files synced via iCloud.

old Macbook via TB2 to TB3 adapter AMD Rx5700 non-XT in Bootcamp with stockcooler and powertable mod, max junct temp 87 - stable in games and benchmarks.  Do you think all Rx5700 cards can do this once unlocked?
