XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Graphics Card Pictured

We're willing to bet that whoever came up with the name "Fatboy" for a 3-slot thick RX 590 graphics card at XFX, is also behind the new Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II. This 3-slot "thick" RX 5700 XT is characterized by a symmetric combination of cooler shroud and back-plate, which fuse at the card's tail end into a chrome grille, which probably explains the name THICC (a slang for people voluptuous below the waist). Under all this, the card uses a custom-design PCB that's somewhat similar to the reference-design, with minor modifications near the power inputs (upside down connectors to help with clearance with the tall cooler), and the use of conventional cylindrical capacitors.

A pair of 100 mm fans ventilate a large aluminium fin-stack heatsink underneath the shroud. The card probably features idle fan-stop. The heatsink consists of two aluminium fin-stacks arranged along the ends of a few copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU. The clock-speeds of this card are not known, since the box doesn't appear to have any "OC" markings. Like most other AMD add-in board (AIB) partners, XFX is expected to launch the Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II and its other cost-effective sibling some time mid-August.

Doesn't thicc mean curvy in a sexy way in slang English: "When a person has fat in the right places, creating sexy curves ". Alright I can buy that MSI, some play of words and some big-a$$ buick 70s grill right there on the back.

And how do You expect the air to flow from the fans, if they were horizontal?

I can't tell by the photos the grill has exhaust, it may be solid.

Why are we getting 3 slot cards now. You couldn't even contemplate a multi GPU setup with this monstrosity. It better run cool too otherwise to me it is a waste of materials and MB slots.

Galax/KFA have them too, my 290 vaporX is like that too.

Crossfire/SLi are DX11 only and proverbally dead due to abandonment. DX12 has mgpu but no one seems to use it.

Yeah... 3 slot cards are quite annoying for people also using their rigs for other than playing games and have other add-on cards to manage...

Ghetto PCIE extender cables it is again then... At least they are back to being cheap.

These were the best-looking coolers XFX ever made. Nice to see them come back.

There are still over 500 games that support crossfire but I get what you are saying. I just don't like the thought of buying a board and not being able to use it to the fullest.

I also like the design - clean, smooth, yet with distinctive features.

Well the problems is not the fans it's the direction of the fins really, i believe it's harder to make them going the other way though which is why you don't ? see it any more.

Not since the 290 DD cards, which made me wounder if i have my life time warranty still as they replaced my failed 290X with a 390X.

Sad really, really wish they could bring it back, hey maybe they will with these cards ?, i guess we will have to see.
