PowerColor Readies SFF-friendly Radeon RX 5700 ITX: Single 8-pin, Idle-Fan-Off

PowerColor is readying a small form-factor friendly custom-design Radeon RX 5700 graphics card, called simply the PowerColor RX 5700 ITX. With a length of 17.5 cm, standard 11 cm height, and strictly 2-slot thickness, the card uses a dense aluminium fin-stack heatsink with four 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU at the base, ventilated by a single 80 mm fan. More interestingly, the card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector (225 W max power input for the connector + PCIe slot).

Unsurprisingly, the PowerColor RX 5700 ITX sticks to AMD-reference clock-speeds of 1465 MHz base, 1625 MHz gaming, and 1725 MHz boost, with the memory ticking at 14 Gbps (GDDR6-effective). Despite its compact cooling solution, the card does not skimp on idle-fan-off. Display outputs include two DisplayPort 1.4, and one HDMI 2.0. Based on the 7 nm "Navi 10" silicon, the RX 5700 features 2,304 stream processors across 36 RDNA compute units, 144 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface, holding 8 GB of memory. PowerColor didn't reveal pricing of the card, as it will formally launch it later this month.

Holy smokes. With barren reference PCB ITX form factor makes sense, but TDP kinda makes me think of Fury Nano and GTX970 mini.
That's probably the best and most viable upgrade for my ITX rig, but I'll wait a bit for reviews....

News reports so far are saying this seems to be a Japan-only deal.

Very nice! Idle fan off is a major bonus especially in this itx form factor. Only 8 pin is another bonus and to be honest all rx 5700 cards should have been only 8 pin.
Only issue is it is Japan release so far hopefully they will fix this and reach to all customers in the world in near future.

Ouch... so much heat output that it needs to lose a video output port just for extra ventilation area. This thing is going to be LOUD.

It will most likely be the same as the other RX 5700 as the higher temps seem to be a driver issue.

This would be perfect in a 3600X ITX build.

Just undervolt it like R9 Nano and it gets much better (and quieter).

Its quite typical. AMD finally has a card with USP's (look at the responses in this topic...), and its available only in Japan.

Seriously I do wonder who is doing marketing and B2B sales over there sometimes

Yeah... because its totally not known there is a market for SFF powerful GPUs :D

Japan might be the only county with small cars... but

If it's available in amazon.I would buy it.for normal prices though.would go great with a mini itx system I'm building in. perfect size for my case.

Remember the populace mainly know about green and white eyes elsewhere, yet are blind to see there are alternatives.

It's Assimilator, it shits on anyone AMD related & praises the competition.

Regardless of whether @Assimilator does what you said, why is it not OK to hate AMD, but fine to hate Intel or Nvidia?

Because this forum is full of very direct attacks on Intel and I've never seen you react.

You may not like how he said it, but the design is weird.
Have you seen something like that lately?

Companies experienced in designing ITX cards - MSI and Gigabyte - offer short single-fan cards with 4 video outputs even with RTX 2070 (which uses more power than 5700, but with less heat concentration).

So this card is basically a very hot 5700 paired with potentially a very basic cooling solution from PowerColor.

AMD does not micromanage their vendors. Vendors serve their respective markets without oversight, all AMD cares about is that they're buying inventory and not shipping DOA products.

This is one thing I like AMD for. I like NVidia, but their micromanaging of everyone sucks.

That having been said, there have been ITX versions of GTX cards. Looking forward to RTX versions.

That's design isn't too far from my little Sapphire RX 570 Pulse ITX. Probably the best card I've ever purchased...runs as cool as a cucumber.

Best,

The standard version of this red dragon card with its quiet bios has a 155W power target. With some fine tuning it can be lowered to around 140W without losing performance from quiet bios target.which is still more than the reference AMD rx 5700. So this card in theory could easily handle those power considering this is a reference card.there are rtx 2060 super itx options which draw more power but hard to find any reviews on them.
