AMD unveiled their Navi GPUs almost a year ago, with their Radeon RX 5700 being in the spotlight. A year later, we’ve come to know that AMD has been hiding the true potential of their RX 5700 GPUs. However, if you’re persistent, you can extract an RTX 2070 Super worth of performance from this $350 GPU.

The RX 5700 has been a complicated GPU ever since it was released back in July 2019. The RX 5700 XT was more eminent with a similar performance to the GeForce RTX 2070 Super at an ominously inexpensive cost. Things only became worse for the $349 RX 5700 after the cost of the RX 5700 XT dropped from $499 to $399. Suddenly, no one paid any heed to the infamous RX 5700. Who would want to purchase the worse GPU for a mere $50? No one!

But that isn’t the case! In actuality, there’s almost no difference in performance between both the GPUs. In fact, AMD has restricted the performance of the RX 5700, hiding the true potential of this Navi GPU.

How To Unlock The True Potential Of Your Radeon RX 5700?

AMD has set certain restrictions to prevent overclocking the RX 5700 past its limit – a limit that they set. Detouring this limit requires the permanent replacement of V-BIOS, all the while jeopardizing your expensive GPU being entirely ruined. Fortunately, there’s a method that doesn’t involve making your GPU a paperweight.

In August 2019, a community member at Igor’s Lab, hellm, created the MorePowerTool. It’s a software that allows you to bypass all of the overdrive features of your Navi GPU, providing you with more authority over it.

MorePowerTool is a stress-free software and you tweak your GPU all you desire. However, altering the settings too much can have a destructive influence on your GPU. If you’re patient and not too covetous, you shouldn’t run into any hindrances. Once you’ve installed the software onto your computer, you can download and load pre-set V-BIOS, or go ahead and tweak your own.
