PowerColor’s Red Devil Radeon RX 5700 XT Makes the AMD Navi Flagship Even Better


If you are in the market for a mid-range graphics card, you might want to look at PowerColor’s Radeon 5700 XT offering. The initial RX 5700 series launch was well-received by reviewers as Radeon Technologies Group(RTG) was finally offering something very competitive in the GPU market in a long time. The blower-style cooler, however, failed to impress most of them for obvious reasons. It was just too noisy and too hot for their likings. AIB partner cards with better cooling solutions are starting to hit the shelves but some of the premium models like Asus Strix RX 5700 XT are charging a hefty premium over the reference prices.

Thankfully for potential buyers, PowerColor’s Red Devil model is only a bit more expensive than the reference version while offering much better cooling. That extra cooling provides some additional headroom for the GPU to clock higher than reference specs.

As expected, it comes with triple 90mm fans and a well-designed PCB with 10 VRMs capable of pushing 300 watts for extreme overclocking. A dual-BIOS switch is also provided for quieter operation.

Powercolor has done away with their typical Reddish tinted design and instead opted for RGB illumination.

Thanks to that extra 150MHz core clock bump, the Red Devil offers 2-4% extra performance in games at both 1080p and 1440p.

During gaming, operating temperatures are reduced from low-90s to mid-70s.
Noise level is also down from an annoying 43dBA to just 31dBA.

If you are a Red Devil fan, you can opt for the Limited edition Red Devil themed RGB Mouse Pad for a few more bucks.

Overall the Red Devil 5700 XT looks like a well-made product and considering all the extra amenities you get over the reference model, the pricing is rather generous. This, in my opinion, makes the Red Devil THE graphics card to get at this price level.
