The YouTube channel of Hardware Unboxed features an extensive benchmark video that combines two graphics cards - GeForce RTX 2070 Super from Nvidia and Radeon RX 5700 XT from AMD. Which chipset is the the better proposition? The answer to this question is not clear.
In terms of pure performance, Nvidia's GPU is undoubtedly the winner. In 1440p resolution, their chipset performs better than its competitors in 28 games. The greatest advantage was recorded in Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (19%), War Thunder (16%) and Fortnite (15%). Radeon won only in 9 titles and its advantage is much less impressive (up to 9% in Battlefield V). In 4K, GeForce's advantage becomes even greater. Considering the fact that the Nvidia GPU also offers support for ray tracing, it is difficult to doubt which of the proposals is more attractive...
...at least until you look at the next chart, which shows the cost of one animation frame per dollar. The AMD card is up to $100 cheaper, and from this perspective its results - although undoubtedly weaker - still make a pretty good impression. For many users, the performance boost offered by GeForce RTX 2070 Super may not be enough to justify the extra cost - especially since both GPUs are doing very well at 1440p resolution (4K would likely require an even stronger GPU anyway).
