ASUS says to expect details on “own design” Navi GPUs in September

AMD’s Radeon Navi RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT graphics cards are now available, bringing some much-needed competition to the mid-range GPU market while giving gamers a glance at Radeon’s new RDNA graphics architecture, which is set to power both Microsoft and Sony’s next-generation consoles. 

ASUS, one of AMD’s largest add-in-board (AIB) partners, plans to create custom versions of their Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards, complete with custom tweaks and tune-ups to deliver increased performance. These changes will likely include models with superior cooling solutions, factory overclocks and modified power phase designs. 

In a recent ASUS Edge Up article, the manufacturer stated that we should “stay tuned for more details in September” when it came to the company’s custom Navi hardware, placing the release of the company’s custom offerings a lot later than expected. Previously, mid-August was the expected release date for custom Radeon Navi graphics cards. 
 

    Our initial Navi offerings will use AMD’s reference cooler design and clock speeds, but we’ll be tweaking, tuning, and powering up these new Radeons with coolers of our own design soon. Stay tuned for more details in September.
