Power Matters with EVGA PowerLink - Clean up your Power and System!

Everyone knows that the EVGA PowerLink does wonders to improve your cable management for your graphics card. But did you know that the EVGA PowerLink also stabilizes the power going into your graphics card? The EVGA PowerLink is designed to provide both a more stable power source and reduce ripple and noise, compared to connecting your power supply directly to the graphics card. The EVGA PowerLink features two solid state capacitors that help to filter/suppress ripple and noise from the power supply.

The practical impact can be seen in power graphs. The 12V line going into graphics card without a PowerLink under load rates a Peak-to-Peak voltage of 1,008mV, while the 12V line going into the graphics card with a PowerLink is only 728mV. That's nearly a 28% reduction in voltage variation from the external power source!

Sapphire Teases RX 5700 XT NITRO Graphics Card

Sapphire China has let out a partial teaser of their upcoming RX 5700 XT NITRO graphics card, which is nearing release and has apparently been finalized. The design shows a slightly longer graphics card than we're used to from Sapphire in recent generation (based on 8-pin port placement and component ratio in the provided image).

The card will seemingly sport a silver-based finish (and what looks like black details in the fan area), and features an RGB "SAPPHIRE" detail on the side, as well as what looks like an RGB strip alongside the PCB. From the image, it seems Sapphire will be using a triple fan cooling solution on this one. Being set in the NITRO series, it's currently unknown if this will be a NITRO or NITRO+ product.

MSI Unveils Radeon RX 5700 MECH Series Graphics Cards

MSI unveiled its Radeon RX 5700-series MECH graphics cards. The lineup includes graphics cards based on both the Radeon RX 5700 XT and the Radeon RX 5700. MSI further differentiated them into a base variant that ticks at AMD-reference clock speeds out of the box, and OC Edition variants that come with factory-overclocked speeds. The MECH series is positioned slightly lower than the company's Evoke series, and the OC Edition variants come with clock speeds that are a notch lower than those of the Evoke OC. The RX 5700 XT MECH OC Edition ships with 1670/1815/1925 MHz (base/gaming/boost) clocks, while the RT 5700 XT MECH has reference clocks of 1605/1755/1905 MHz. The RX 5700 MECH OC Edition comes with 1515/1675/1750 MHz, while the standard RX 5700 MECH ships with reference clocks of 1465/1625/1725 MHz.

All four MECH series graphics cards are based on a common board design. The PCB is custom-design, and is similar to that of the RX 5700 Evoke series. The cooling solution uses the same exact aluminium fin-stack heatsink as the EVOKE, with the same pair of 90 mm TorX fans, but suspended onto a cost-effective plastic shroud, compared to the diamond-cut alloy shroud of the EVOKE. All four cards feature a backplate. The cards draw power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include three DisplayPorts and an HDMI. The RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 MECH series from MSI are expected to be priced about $10-15 higher than the AMD baseline prices for the base variants, and about $15-20 higher for the OC Edition variants.

XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Graphics Card Pictured

We're willing to bet that whoever came up with the name "Fatboy" for a 3-slot thick RX 590 graphics card at XFX, is also behind the new Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II. This 3-slot "thick" RX 5700 XT is characterized by a symmetric combination of cooler shroud and back-plate, which fuse at the card's tail end into a chrome grille, which probably explains the name THICC (a slang for people voluptuous below the waist). Under all this, the card uses a custom-design PCB that's somewhat similar to the reference-design, with minor modifications near the power inputs (upside down connectors to help with clearance with the tall cooler), and the use of conventional cylindrical capacitors.

A pair of 100 mm fans ventilate a large aluminium fin-stack heatsink underneath the shroud. The card probably features idle fan-stop. The heatsink consists of two aluminium fin-stacks arranged along the ends of a few copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU. The clock-speeds of this card are not known, since the box doesn't appear to have any "OC" markings. Like most other AMD add-in board (AIB) partners, XFX is expected to launch the Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II and its other cost-effective sibling some time mid-August.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 "Navi" Graphics Cards Lack CrossFire Support

In a comical turn of events, while NVIDIA restored NVLink SLI support for its RTX 2070 Super graphics card on virtue of being based on the "TU104" silicon, AMD did the opposite with "Navi." The Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 lack support for AMD CrossFire. If you put two of these cards on, say, a swanky X570 motherboard that splits PCIe gen 4.0 to two x8 slots with bandwidths comparable to PCIe gen 3.0 x16; you won't see an option to enable CrossFire. AMD, responding to our question on CrossFire compatibility clarified that AMD dropped CrossFire support for "Navi" in favor of DirectX 12 and Vulkan "explicit" multi-GPU mode. The older "implicit" multi-GPU mode - CrossFire - used by DirectX 11, DirectX 9, and OpenGL games is not supported. The AMD statement follows.
Radeon RX 5700 Series GPU's support CrossFire in 'Explicit' multi-GPU mode when running a DX12 or Vulkan game that supports multiple GPU's. The older 'implicit' mode used by legacy DX9/11/OpenGL titles is not supported.

AMD reference-design Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 graphics cards will launch on the 7th of July, and the company's various add-in-board (AIB) partners are ready with their inventories. VideoCardz scored pictures from various such board partners. As for the cards themselves, all of these are based on the AMD reference-design. The RX 5700 reference-design is in mass-production, contrary to older reports. All these packages appear to indicate reference clock speeds. In select markets, all of these packages include the Xbox Game Pass for PC, which gives you a 3-month access to vast library of full game titles from Microsoft.

There still are no picture leaks on custom-design Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards, which suggests that they will be launched a little later. At Computex we spotted several new graphics card cooling solutions from AMD partners, confirming that custom-design cards are a go. The reference Radeon RX 5700 XT has an MSRP of $449, while the RX 5700 is priced at $379. As for the limited-edition Radeon RX 5700 XT AMD 50th Anniversary Edition, it will be available online through AMD.com in select markets, priced at $499.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Released: TU117, 896 Cores, 4 GB GDDR5, $150

NVIDIA today rolled out the GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card at USD $149.99. Like its other GeForce GTX 16-series siblings, the GTX 1650 is derived from the "Turing" architecture, but without RTX real-time raytracing hardware, such as RT cores or tensor cores. The GTX 1650 is based on the 12 nm "TU117" silicon, which is the smallest implementation of "Turing." Measuring 200 mm² (die area), the TU117 crams 4.7 billion transistors. It is equipped with 896 CUDA cores, 56 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory clocked at 8 Gbps (128 GB/s bandwidth). The GPU is clocked at 1485 MHz, and the GPU Boost at 1665 MHz.

The GeForce GTX 1650 at its given price is positioned competitively with the Radeon RX 570 4 GB from AMD. NVIDIA has been surprisingly low-key about this launch, by not just leaving it up to the partners to drive the launch, but also sample reviewers. There are no pre-launch Reviewer drivers provided by NVIDIA, and hence we don't have a launch-day review for you yet. We do have GTX 1650 graphics cards, namely the Palit GTX 1650 StormX, MSI GTX 1650 Gaming X, and ASUS ROG GTX 1650 Strix OC.

Update: Catch our reviews of the ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1650 OC and MSI GTX 1650 Gaming X

NVIDIA to Flesh out Lower Graphics Card Segment with GeForce GTX 1650 Ti

It seems NVIDIA's partners are gearing up for yet another launch, sometime after the GTX 1650 finally becomes available. ECC Listings have made it clear that partners are working on another TU117 variant, with improved performance, sitting between the GTX 1650 and the GTX 1660, which will should bring the fight to AMD's Radeon RX 580. Of course, with the GTX 1660 sitting pretty at a $219 price, this leaves anywhere between the GTX 1650's $149 and the GTX 1660's $229 for the GTX 1650 Ti to fill. With the GTX 1660 being an average of 13% faster than the RX 580, it makes sense for NVIDIA to look for another SKU to cover that large pricing gap between the 1650 and the 1660.

It's speculated that the GeForce GTX 1650 could feature 1024 CUDA Cores, 32 ROPs and 64 TMUs. These should be paired with the same 4 GB GDDR5 VRAM running across a 128-bit bus at the same 8000 MHz effective clock speeds as the GTX 1650, delivering a bandwidth of 128 GB/s. Should NVIDIA be able to pull the feat of keeping the same 75W TDP between its Ti and non-Ti GTX 1650 (as it did with the GTX 1660), that could mean that a 75 W graphics card would be contending with AMD's 185 W RX 580 - a mean, green feet in the power efficiency arena. A number of SKUs for the GTX 1650 Ti have been leaked on ASUS' side of the field, which you can find after the break.
