CES 2020 - AMD Radeon 5600 and 5600 XT

AMD Radeon cards are great, their value is huge for 1080p and 1440p gamers. Now, AMD revealed yet another, 1080p for higher FPS.

Best for 1080p gaming

AMD showed AAA games like Gears 5 on Ultra settings and 1080p, which is still the most popular resolution. Higher frame-rate is generally considered better for gaming, than higher resolution, anyway.

Those games ran just under 100 FPS on Ultra settings and that are great results any gamer casual would be perfectly satisfied with.

AMD compared Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, The Division 2 and Gears 5 to GTX 1660 Ti and RX 5600 XT's FPS was about 8% higher.

In eSports titles Apex Legends, Fortnite and World of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth were FPS well above 100 FPS and still higher, than compared GTX 1660 Ti.

To be fair, Gears 5 is not the most demanding title on the market. I would like to see Metro Exodus and its FPS, but we will have to wait. It'll still run smoothly.
