It’s been less than a month since the launch of the AMD RX series GPUs, and a picture of an unnamed custom XFX card has surfaced online. By the looks of it, this most certainly is a Radeon RX 5700 series card, here’s why.
The fans give a striking resemblance to the Vega cards launched by XFX. Evidently, the company is known for a major redesign of the shroud over each iteration and the same can be said for this one. The card appears to have a striped texture with a dual-fan (possibly 100mm) cooling solution. Judging by the dimensions, the card will posolutely feature a large heatsink, enabling silent mode feature.
The reference Radeon RX 5700 XT launched by AMD is an excellent card but has it’s under load and idle temperatures on the higher side, which is a concern among overclockers. The PCB can use a better cooling solution which the custom XFX card might be able to provide. The under the hood PCB design is not confirmed whether XFX has developed a custom Navi PCB or is using the reference PCB shipped with the AMD Radeon RX 5700 series cards.
Since other add-in board partners are expected to launch their flavor of the RX 5700 series cards in August, the same can be said for this XFX Radeon card.
