HIS Announces Pink, Blue Army Versions of AMD's RX 5700 XT Graphics Card

HIS today announced two new graphics cards to their lineup, and these are colorful ones (no pun intended). The Pink and Blue Army graphics cards the company is announcing today are based on AMD's RX 5700 XT graphics card, powered by Navi, and will be available in both colors in both OC and non-OC versions (these non-OC versions still carry higher clocks than AMD's reference ones, though).
These are essentially adaptations of HIS' IceQ 2X coolers to AMD's latest, with a changed color scheme. The cards are 2.5 slots featuring dual-fan cooling solutions, and feature a full cover backplate that's also been "gaudied" up in the aforementioned colors. The OC versions will carry clocks set at 1730 MHz, 1870 MHz, and 1980 MHz for the Base, Game and Boost modes respectively, which are either higher or in line with AMD's own RX 5700 XT Anniversary graphics cards. The non-OC versions still see bumps relative to AMD's reference design, shipping at 1670 MHz, 1815 MHz, and 1925 MHz for the Base, Game and Boost modes. Outputs are taken care of by 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI.

I'm not one to really care about the visuals of my internal parts since I don't have a window, but holy hell are those some ugly cards. My poop brown NH-U14S looks like a supermodel next to those things.

Can't see how this would appeal to many, but since HIS is basically not a AIB partner selling in North America I wouldn't speak to what would be the draw in other regions.

The pink and red one is just an eyesore to me. Too much.

If they are cheap and cool, first thing I would do is spray-paint the shroud and backplate black. The more mainstream PC gaming becomes, the more companies do nonsense like this to 'broaden consumer appeal'.

That is quick of HIS to captilize on the recent "cute edition GPU" trend.











I mean there are a lot of anime lovers who would gladly buy these.


PC hardware need some feminine touch alright~

There's a powerful counter-cultural streak within the AMD community that happens to be associated with anime. Sound business model yes, but also reflective of their impression of that community.

Good on HIS for making unique shrouds.

At some point AMD had issued official CAD drawings of the covers used for Fury generation cards so people could 3D print their own card covers. It was a great niche move, I know I had fun making some.

I see this as HiS possibly moving towards interchangeable fan shrouds and backplates as an sold separately accessory maybe.

Though @Casecutter was right HiS are from Hong Kong and mainly distribute around Asia. They are just trying to find a way to capitalise more on the market by making some their cards more appealing to a wider audience that might actually like that cutesy kind of stuff. There will always been the regular black, silver, red and grey coolers though.

Interchangeable components even if aesthetic would be a nightmare for OEMs/AIBs. They need to standardize the cooling or issue strict warranty terms to avoid problems.

Very interesting post! Why aren't there lots of 3d-printed custom shroud threads on the internet? I've always wanted for instance to minimize the shroud to accommodate larger fans.

Out of everything else going on around the world; yes, this is the thing that classifies as "leaving the building." :rolleyes: Someone likes something that I don't find appealing, or that I don't understand, burn them!

It's not something I'd buy, I prefer minimalism, but there are definitely people who enjoy this type of stuff.

f.U.u.U.u.G.g.G.L.L.yyyyyyyyyyy......

Now, OTOH, if they made custom shrouds with pics of super hot chicks (non-anime) (or dudes, depending on you prefs), I would most likely buy several of them, like, yesterday, hahahaha ...o_O..:clap:..:eek:

Holy ****balls those are terrible-looking cards.

But hey, as long as HIS continues to also make and sell less awful versions, I'm never going to get upset about an increase in choice. Someone, somewhere will be ecstatic about these and as long as it doesn't stop me from buying the cards I actually want, I'm not going to get emotional about it.

Clearly, I'm not the target market for these things. The only resentment I may hold is less about HIS and more a nagging fear that the clean minimalist styling I prefer is going out of fashion, and therefore (eventually) out of production. The nightmare for me is that in five years from now I'll be the outspoken minority that removes the default Hello-Kitty robotronic RGBLED inflatable cosmetic shroud from a new graphics card to replace it with a boring heatsink and fan, just so that I can fit it in an obsolete ATX form-factor tower, because the new standard form factor is a 5' tall hollowed-out mecha-Pikachu with dry-ice smoke effects and RGBLaser mechanised stage lighting...

as much as I like anime ( bleach, death note) it belongs on the outside of the case, not on a card that sits upside down in 90% of the cases built.

I regret turning off adblock in order to see the pictures.
TPU was trying to do me a favor.

How old are you? You sound like someone who's in their late-30s, might as well claim 40 to early to mid-50's that tries to sound hip and cool by using trendy sounding words/phrases that haven't and probably won't catch on. Old trend was to delete syllables and/or mash up words together, so now it's ummm, slapping labels on things again I suppose?

But she doesn't fully utilize her 3200g

Realizes most people in thread don't realize how many gamers are girls and *cute* matters even to gamer girls.

The "normie" version of this card exists, its not the end of the world.

Happy to bust your buble, the anime one is a Nvidia card, not AMD. So looks like Nvidia fans are the real counter-culture block, and try to blame AMD community for that.
