Powercolor launches six custom Radeon RX 5700 series GPUs

Powercolor has officially revealed six custom Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards, each of which are due to release on August 19th. In the UK, the retailer Overclockers UK is due to receive stock on August 23rd, and receive RX 5700 XT series graphics cards first. 

These six graphics card models are RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 versions of three custom GPU designs, with the Red Devil taking acting as the company’s high-end model, the Red Dragon sitting as a mid-range offering while the Dual fan is designed to act as the company’s price/performance offering. 

The specifications of each of these graphics cards are available below, as well as MSRP pricing for the US and today’s UK pricing at Overclockers UK. AMD’s reference RX 5700 series graphics cards are also included for comparison purposes. 

On the high-end, we have the Powercolor RX 5700 Red Devil series, which offers clock speeds that are significantly higher than AMD’s reference models and a large triple-fan cooler design. In addition to this, Powercolor has added RGB functionality into the mix, by adding lighting elements to the GPU’s backplate and side. The GPU uses a 12-layer PCB and utilises a 10-phase VRM design. Powercolor has stated that the Red Devil can handle more than 300W of power, which is more than enough for a hefty Navi overclock. 

Next up there’s Powercolor’s RX 5700 Red Dragon series, which offers consumers a lower factory overclock and a dual-fan cooler design. This graphics card ships with a lower price than the Red Devil series and acts as a mid-range offering. This GPU delivers more performance than AMD’s reference models while also offering a reasonably low price tag. 

The Powercolor Dual Fan series is the company’s value offering, shipping with a price that’s close to AMD’s reference models while also offering higher clock speeds and a dual-fan cooler design. With this design, Powercolor is offering a great alternative to AMD’s reference models, assuming the GPU is priced accordingly in your region. Strangely, the UK pricing of Powercolor’s graphics cards is higher than the company’s US MSRPs, so much so that it creates a huge price gap between Powercolor’s GPUs and AMD’s reference RX 5700 models.
