Well, today's the day, AMD announced the RX 5700 XT on their video launch at the start of March. There have been performance leaks and lots of information but today is the day where everything is released. I don’t have a reference card coming in to test but I do have an overclocked card from MSI. Their RX 6700 XT Gaming X. Today I’m going to put it through our normal test suite to see how it performs and to get an idea of where it stands in today's very complicated market.

Before diving into testing I did run GPUz on the RX 6700 XT Gaming X. I wanted to make sure the clock speeds matched the specifications but the specifications online didn’t have a boost clock listed. So I have to assume that the 2629 MHz boost clock is stock. Beyond that, though GPUz also lets us document the BIOS revision and the driver which is the AMD provided press driver.
