We just covered the release date for third party Radeon RX 5700 XT cards by Gigabyte, MSI
But, and there’s always a but, you can’t get them just yet. These cards won’t be available until the second week of September.
Comparing prices with the blower-style cards by ASUS, MSI and Sapphire, the custom cooler cards seem to be the obvious choice for anyone looking for a Radeon RX 5700 XT. The MSI Radeon RX 5700 XT blower style card is Rs. 37,999 while Sapphire and ASUS’s version of the reference design are priced at Rs. 36,049 and Rs. 36,617 respectively. The Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT GAMING OC offers the same boost clocks but with better cooling, better overclocking headroom at a very similar price.
On the green team, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super is also similarly priced in the 36-37K range but when it comes to performance, the 5700 XT leaves it in the dust. In our opinion, this makes the Gigabyte triple-fan card a no brainer over either of the three reference design cards or the 2060 Super. And, if you want even more performance, get the GeForce RTX 2070 Super priced in the same range as the ASUS TUF 5700 XT.
