Visually, the PowerColor RX 5600 XT ITX looks completely different to the company's other Navi-generation cards. Rather, the board reminds a bit of a typical AMD reference design. A backplate is not included.

Graphics Card Dimensions

Dimensions of the card are 17.5 x 11.0 cm.

Installation requires two slots in your system.

Monitor Outputs, Display Connectors

Display connectivity options include two standard DisplayPort 1.4a and one HDMI 2.0b port.

Graphics Card Power Plugs

The board uses one 8-pin power connector. This input configuration is specified for up to 225 watts of power draw.

Multi-GPU Area

AMD's Navi generation of GPUs no longer supports CrossFire. DirectX 12 does include its own set of multi-GPU capabilities, but implementation requires game developers to put serious development time into a feature only a tiny fraction of their customers might ever use.

Disassembly

PowerColor is using four heatpipes and a copper base on their cooler. This piece of the cooler also provides cooling for the memory chips and VRM circuitry. This is the exact same cooler as on the RX 5700 ITX—even including all eight thermal pads for memory.
