New Custom Navi Cards From Asus: TUF Gaming X3 Line Launched

We now have even more custom RX 5700 and RX 5700XT parts hitting the market. This is a great thing considering that reference boards got so toasty that AMD had to release a weasely statement to the extent that 110 degrees Celsius is a normal operating temperature for Navi. I remember reviewing the R9 390X and learning that AMD considered 94 degrees optimal for that part. Did it run without throttling? Well, yeah it did. Was I comfortable with the idea of silicon running at the boiling point of water? No, not exactly

These new custom Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700XT models from Asus will hopefully bring Navi temperatures down to more reasonable levels, opening up the way to higher overclocks. This shows in the enhanced clocks that Asus is shipping the cards at.

Both the Gaming X3 5700 and Gaming X3 5700XT ship with a software-based OC mode that ups the clockspeed by 4 percent. With the meaty 3 fan setup, though, we wager that Navi could be pushed considerably further here. There’s no word on pricing yet. However, if Asus plays by MSI rules, it’s going to be a wash. Navi’s great but no one’s going to buy a 40,000 rupee RX 5700XT if they launch in India at all that is.
