PowerColor's card follows the visual theme set by the RX 5700 XT Red Devil almost exactly. It uses different shades of gray, and the metal backplate has an RGB-illuminated Red Devil logo.

Graphics Card Dimensions

Dimensions of the card are 24.5 x 13.5 cm.

Installation requires three slots in your system.

Monitor Outputs, Display Connectors

Display connectivity options include three standard DisplayPort 1.4a and an HDMI 2.0b.

Graphics Card Power Plugs

The board uses one 8-pin and one 6-pin power connector. This input configuration is specified for up to 300 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 the implementation requires game developers to put serious development time into a feature only a tiny fraction of their customers might ever use.

In this area, you'll also find a dual-BIOS switch, with the default setting being "OC" and the other BIOS "Silent".

Disassembly

PowerColor's thermal solution uses five heatpipes to keep the chip cool. This piece of the heatsink also provides cooling for the memory chips and VRM circuitry.


The backplate is made out of metal; it adds to the card's aesthetic and protects components on the PCB when handling the card.
