ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT ROG Strix and RX 5700 TUF Gaming X3 Pictured

ASUS is ready with its custom-design Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards, and is lining them up to launch some time mid-August. The company is giving the RX 5700 XT some premium treatment with a Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix OC product; while both the RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT will get a TUF Gaming product. The RX 5700 XT ROG Strix features a large custom-design PCB with a meaty VRM that draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors; and ASUS' premium DirectCU III cooling solution that combines an aluminium fin-stack heatsink with three AxialTech fans.

The ROG Strix RX 5700 XT also offers several high-end features, such as dual-BIOS, idle fan-stop, one-touch RGB-off toggle, power-supply fault LEDs, voltage measurement points, and additional 4-pin PWM case-fan headers with which you can sync your case fans to the graphics card's cooling. It also features addressable RGB LED embellishments on the cooler shroud, the back-plate, and top. Display outputs include three DP 1.4 and one HDMI 2.0b. The RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT TUF Gaming X3 are a slightly different beast. This board design uses a slightly lighter aluminium fin-stack heatsink, yet still ventilated by three fans, and a stylish back-plate. We don't expect features such as idle fan-stop. Both cards will feature factory-overclocked speeds.

Update Aug 12th: Our review of the ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT STRIX OC is live now.

The TUF looks so much cleaner and nicer than the ROG.

Also funnily enough, Sapphire teased/showed nothing so far (and I think Gigabyte as well). As far as I can tell, people are most exited about a rumored Toxic/Vapor-X or smth

gamersnexus did benchmarks at 2.1ghz, it really wasn't that much of a gain over stock, around 5-10 fps depending on the game except for a few exceptions. I'm excited to see what RX 5800 XT does.

if you check the intel vs AMD threads 10FPS is enough to convince someone to become a rabid fanboy, it might still sway a lot of opinions

Indeed. Memory bandwidth heavily constrains Navi 10 oc performance me thinks since its VRAM is almost not oc at all.

You don't need to be a geniuses to see that AIB reviews are coming at August 7th :), It will surprise me if not.
Also I like the AIB Coolers for AMD this time, looks like they are getting same treatment and Nvidia, those massive coolers + Auto UV will get you silent Gaming for such high performance cards.

About SUPER bad marketing, on Amazon.it there are 3dr party sellers selling NON Super cards as Super taking advantages of the confusion nVidia has created.

I'd buy one just for the box if AMD had the nuts to use this name.

Another thing, this pic

No source, just think so because AMD is obsessed with "day 7" of the month and we started to see too many "leaks" of the cards photos, so 1+1= August 7th IMO :).
From now on- treat each 7th day of the month as potential new HW release by AMD on 7nm :clap:.
P.S: AIB's mentioned that the cards will be available on 2nd week of August- so if the Reviews are live on 07/08 and you can only get the cards on 08/08 then technically it's 2nd week of August :).

Maybe we can ask @ W1zzard if he is busy this days ;).

a) It's actually called "Thicc"? Oh dear.
b) That is hideous. Good thing that end of a GPU isn't actually visible.
c) I'm getting tired of these unnecessary triple-slot cards.

That's freakin' huge.

Seems a little wasteful to spend so much on the cooler when the underlying chip competes with TU106 (2060S, 2070). I mean, if this Asus model is even close to $500 then it's going to get owned by base-level 2070S cards. No overclocking can save it from that.

Yea I agree. If they could put those new style ROG fans in the TUF cooler though... A friend has the ROG 2080 and the fans are so quiet, and soft sounding when they do spin up.
