XFX has finally done it! They have brought back their slick, black and chrome cooler designs, something which we haven’t seen from them since the R9 200 series. Don’t expect a rainbow of RGB LEDs of a heavily angled “Gamer” aesthetic this time, as XFX is bringing us a design that offers the same look and feel of a 1950s sports car. 

Meet the XFX RX 5700 XT THICC II, a 2.5-slot graphics card which ships with a custom cooler which features two 10cm axial fans and a heatsink with is both wider and longer than the graphics card’s PCB. The graphics card also appears to feature a BIOS switch at the side of its PCB. 

At this time the clock speeds offered by this graphics card are unknown, though they are undoubtedly higher than AMD’s reference RX 5700 XT.

Just like AMD’s reference RX 5700 XT, XFX’s THICC II model features three DisplayPort 1.4 connections and a single HDMI 2.0b port. AMD’s Navi architecture supports Display Stream Compression (DSC), which enables the RX 5700 XT to support 4K resolutions at 144Hz refresh rates without chroma sub-sampling or any noticeable losses in image quality. VESA considers its DSC technology to be practically lossless.

On the rear of the XFX RX 5700 XT THICC II, we can see that XFX has included a perforated backplate which features and XFX logo. While the logo is upside down in this picture, it is worth noting that the XFX logo will be correctly oriented when looking at the GPU from outside of your PC case, which is excellent news given the popularity of tempered glass case windows these days.

XFX’s RX 5700 XT THICC II is expected to release within the next month, like other custom AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT offerings.
