Our ASUS RX 5700 XT TUF EVO review takes a look at the new cooler design, which fixes the memory temperature problem of the original TUF without the "EVO". The card is very solid and runs quietly with excellent GPU temperatures and idle-fan stop.

Nice improvement from original TUF, sound is now audible and temperature is somewhat under control.
Funny Evoke and Gaming X support Fan Stop, my Mech OC would crash if I force it.

Aren't the Evoke and Mech literally the same card but with different fan shrouds?

Wow, it took them long enough. I'd wager this is too late to make any difference. 5700XT sales have dropped right off because who is going to buy an AMD flagship card this close to the next-gen launch?

This is at least the cooling performance one would expect from a triple-slot, full-length, extended height card. How they screwed up the first version of this makes the XFX THICC stupidity seem like competence.

This. This data is awesome, and that FPS distribution one is a really cool one too.

As for the card... yet another release that underlines AMD really needs to get its sh*t together and tighten up their deals with OEMs. What's the point of this? Its late and its not substantially better than whatever already exists. Maybe for Asus, but otherwise..

I double checked for you, it's listed twice on the package




A big fat sticker "EVO - now improved" would be useful indeed

I had 5600xt strix and 5700xt pulse.... now i have vega 64 nitro... based on graphs posted here in this review vega 64 and 5600xt are neck to neck in ac odyssey and 5700xt is much ahead... that is not true based on my experience. Vega 64 and 5700xt are neck to neck and 5600xt is much slower.. btw 5600xt strix was top version oced to the driver limit, pulse 5700xt was also oced and vega 64 nitro is on power saver quiet bios 210w... I have ryzen 3600x with 32 gb 3200mhz ram. In ac odyssey if using internal benchmark one can't have correct results unless vol.clouds are turned off completely because weather changes from run to run impacting performance severly depending on sunny or cloudy weather.

Performance will vary even on the same parts of the game (in game not necesarrily benchmark) with the same gpu depending on the weather system.... clouds on ultra vs very high cause roughly 30 percent perf hit depending on parts of the game. Go figure..When you playthru and the weather is sunny you'll have much higher fps than while playing thru the same area in rainy cloudy weather. My experience so far is... 5700xt severly crippled by poor drivers...I tried at least six of them and even with 60 plus fps in many games it just stutters. Odyssey was terrible. 5600xt on the other hand...I had nothing but positive experience and asus strix is an awsome card. One of the coldest and most quiet gpus I've ever had. But it lacked some punch at 2560x1080p.. vega 64 nitro...so far nothing but praise. Performance wise 5700xt level without stuttering.

I thought you knew that @W1zzard lives on a private island in the Maldives... It's always sunny there.
I wish, getting hot here in Germany, and all this benching doesn't help with room temps

Im dying to play with my new 3700X rig but it’s unbearable. But a fellow member sold me on this last night it was an instant buy. I have a heat pump that does AC but just one room literally answering my prayers and he wa# showing me his room temp at 16C. cant wait to get it

Way off topic now, but here's a similar product that launched on Indiegogo.

Keep in mind that these things don't work in humid places, since they use water vapour for the cooling effect, also known as a swamp cooler.

Yeah it’s just hot here humidity isn’t a big issue.

So Which would be better, the Strix or this one? I just got the Strix because it matches my theme, but I think this is a good contender too.

If you don't care about price, the STRIX is better

Yeah I know Asus are kinda overpriced but since I was looking for that brand to match my build I got the Strix, it was like $20 more. Thanks for the reply.
