Here are some of the first clear pictures of the Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 AMD launched on Monday. The two cards are based on the new 7 nm "Navi 10" silicon that implements AMD's latest RDNA architecture. The reference-design RX 5700 XT sports a brand new premium design with a ridged metal cooler shroud studded with an illuminated Radeon logo on top, a second logo at its front face, and a matching back-plate. Underneath is an aluminium fin-channel heatsink with a vapor-chamber base-plate that pulls heat from the GPU, memory, and VRM. A lateral-flow blower ventilates the heatsink, pushing hot air out of the case. Power is drawn from a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Outputs include three DisplayPort and one HDMI.

The Radeon RX 5700 looks a little less premium, and its cooler design greatly resembles the "metal" reference cooler of the RX Vega 64. This is possibly because reference RX 5700 will not make it to the market unlike reference RX 5700 XT, and will instead be an AIB partner-driven launch, with all cards being custom-design. AMD also provided images of the RX 5700 XT in a "teardown" shot, which reveals the vapor-chamber based heatsink, the lateral blower, and more importantly, the reference-design PCB with its 7-phase VRM.



More pictures follow.



Here are some close-ups of the 7 nm "Navi 10" ASIC. You may notice the RX 5700 (non-XT) having two 8-pin PCIe connectors. This is probably an error on the part of the artist behind the render. The RX 5700 is a partner-only launch, which means all cards will be custom-design.



A quick refresher on the specifications of the RX 5700 XT and the RX 5700. We are working on an architecture deep-dive.

This blower design is good if < 150w, if > than 150w then I'm against it. AMD might have improved how it works, that is yet to be seen.

Some hesitation when I saw the double 8 pin connectors, hoping it’s only for the render.

The 5700 XT has specs in line with 2x R9 290, considering two Hawaiis in CF still are quite playable, albeit quite power hungry, it will be interesting to see the end result.

Also, looking forward to the 5800 whatever-stupid-letter-combo, as last time those numbers were together (HD5870) it was interesting.

looks like the same loud ass blower design.
*Cough* 51 db *Cough*

That dent on the XT model just ruins the design.
What a horrible fking decision on the design part.
GPU so hot it melts its own cooler!

These should have been $249 and $199 cards. Would sell like hotcakes.

At current prices they are ripoffs just like nvidias.

Never mind the design, who cares, it's supposed to be in a box, is it not?
I don't care about the visual design of the card, but I don't want to listen to the insane blower cooler..

Surprise!
Moore's law is real.
VRM, GDDR6, 7NM brings cost up, people compare against larger dies and what not.
449 is a bit steep, 399 would be more accurate but atleast is less of a ripoff than 2070 if provided benchmark actually are true.
Conclusion remains to be seen until actual launch as usual.

I'm not happy, I'm not sad like with Vega. :)

Ok, in that case, my fault.* Regarding the blower, I have no problem with that either. I've used these cards; RX480, RXV64 and also a 1070TI with this type of cooler, and haven't experienced any problem. Maybe it's about settings, not forcing them too high.

*I first believed it was dj-electric that I was responding to.

But what's the point of dropping 500$ on a video card and then not maxing settings in-game.
Whatever, it's a reference card anyway, Sapphire will make a good one like they always do.

Imagine, if they had negative price.
Like, you buy a card, and AMD pays you for betraying Huang, as a sort of compensation for moral harm.


Wake me up when we have a GPU that is not competing against a 2015 GPU zzzzzzzzzzzzz
Is 2015 BC or AD?

Joke all you want.
Mid-range has been creeping up continuously for the past 5-7 years or so. (Actually, all GPU prices creeping up)

Today = Same size of silicon as 5 years ago, but double+ the price.

So looking at my foggy crystal ball:
- "Mid-range" videocard in 2025 ... $799-$1199
- "High-end" videocard in 2025 ... $1499-$3999
...
- "Low-end" videocard in 2025 ... $399 (cheapest card possible)

If this insanity continues, this is where we'll be. And (almost) everyone seems to be okay with it.
Ridiculous.

This card looks way too cheap for its price tag, not just by aesthetics - the design and cooling solution but also the chip (the non XT) that is very similar to a Polaris 30

To be fair, I'd hope IGPs are powerful enough by 2025 that a $400 card is the only reasonable starting step.

Having just typed that out, I realized how stupid it is.

Mmmy yes, give me my next heating solution for this winter.
Reminds me of my good ol' 8800gt single slot. RIP little buddy. Your heat was as loved in the winter and as hated in the summer. I had to change your diaper twice(cooler). You still left me...

Some people here behave like children for sure.

1) If AMD's performance slides are real, we are talking about a GPU having the same performance as Radeon VII and being sold for much less, while beating 2070 and costing less also. When nVidia lowers the prices, AMD will have the ability to lower theirs too. Competition lowers the prices, not wishes. Be real people.
2) Reference cooler is the best for cases that don't have great airflow and it is to protect the product from damage due to the pc onwer ignorance on this aspect of pc building Custom models wil come soon.
