PowerColor at CES 2020: RX 5700 XT Liquid Devil, 5600 XT Red Devil and Red Dragon

PowerColor at CES 2020 took the opportunity provided by AMD's announcement of the RX 5600 XT graphics cards to showcase their offerings on that SKU. Based on a graphics card that AMD announced would be targeting the $279 price point, PowerColor will be launching two SKUs based on the Navi silicon: RX 5600 XT Red Devil and Red Dragon.

The RX 5700 XT Liquid Devil is based on PowerColor's RX 5700 XT started shipping back in November 25th.
PowerColor also showcased the Red Dragon and Red Devil iterations of the RX 5600 XT - and the Devil will ship with a final 8 pin + 6-pin power delivery subsystem. The Red Dragon is the base offering, with the simplest design philosophy, while the Red Devil ups the ante on that regard (particularly when it comes to the cooler shroud). The Red Dragon is also a true two slot card and utilizes a single power connector.
All graphics cards ship with the same output configuration of 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI.

While the card is being shown with an 8+6 pin power delivery subsystem, we were told by PowerColor the final product will only carry an 8 pin + 6-pin connector, which bodes well for the card's power consumption.
I'm thinking you meant 8+8 since it's clearly shown on the attached photos.

I see 3x DisplayPort, and 1x HDMI. :)

A water block doesn't make sense on a GPU at this price range. You'd be better off spending the addition money by stepping up to the next series.

A water block doesn't make sense on a GPU at this TDP range (~130W).

Liquid cooling on a midrange card is almost as stupid as liquid cooling on RAM.

Use the existing bios, also not properly removing the old driver or reverting tweaking tools back to defaults causes trouble, remember motherboard chipset drivers must be updated too.
yeah all this has been done and now powercolor is blaming amd for the problem

I can understand the Liquid devil 5700xt, but a 5600xt Model? Why in this price range?

Hi,

Sorry to hear your liquid devil 5700xt doesn’t work with new driver. Maybe AMD is updating their drivers.
Your graphic card hardware should work because our factory quality control test your card before it was shipped out.
Please try the below troubleshooting procedures to resolve your card’s issue.

It might be a driver issue. Please contact our partner AMD relating to your driver installation issue at www.amd.com/en/support/contact
Most likely, it’s driver issue or motherboard compatibility.


Our powercolor graphic card works with Asus, MSI, Gigabtye, Asrock, etc. motherboard (UEFI compatibility) with 3.0 PCIe slots. Please make sure you fulfill the system requirements

Please try our below troubleshooting procedures. Your new card should work after you try the troubleshooting procedures.
Here is our installation instruction. Please use integrated GPU on your motherboard for video output to your monitor and download the latest driver again from support.amd.com/en-us/download.
After you download, please shutdown your computer, and then insert your Powercolor card into your motherboard PCIe slot. Please try the newest version of the driver.

Please also try the following more troubleshooting process.
  1. Please try updating your Mother Board BIOS to the newest version and also update your AMD chipset by downloading the current AMD chipset driver onwww.amd.com
  2. Please check yourpower supply, your graphic card needs minimum of 650 watts or better power supply. Certified power supplies are strongly recommended; for a list of certified power supplies, please see the following link support.amd.com/en-us/recommended/power-supplies
  3. Please try to plug in the graphic card into another PCIe slot if your MB has another PCIe x16 slot and also into another system to see if it’s card or motherboard, hardware compatibility issue.
  4. Please check if your system has good airflow. I would suggest you to have at least 2 fans in your PC, one in the front that will suck air in, the other one put in the back which will blow air out.
  5. Please use driver fusion to remove all previous graphic card drivers.treexy.com/products/driver-fusion then installing AMD WHQL driver from: support.amd.com/en-us/download
  6. Check all system drivers, update them to the newest WHQL version if website has new version.
  7. Please do a Virus and Trojan scan to check if your system is infected or not.
  8. Clean up your profile: Whenever you install a program, it will move your profile into the system and become more and more cumbersome. You can find many free cleanup programs online. CCleaner is the current general common Windows login key cleanup program. Download link:www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard
  9. Please use DDU program to uninstall your previous graphic card driver. Have a nice day!
Regards,
RMA Tech Support

Hi,

Your card’s issue is most likely not bios issue or other issue, but driver issue. We have multiple users with driver issues.
Please contact our partner AMD relating to your driver installation issue at www.amd.com/en/support/contact because it’s driver coding issue and not card hardware.

Bit overkill for this level of GPU but meh, it looks nice.

Always funny when the lowest-tier SKU is the better looking one. Agree that a waterblock is silly for a ~130-150W card. As is any power input beyond a single 8-pin (150W from that + ~65W from the PCIe slot should be enough, no?) even on overclocked SKUs.
