Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC Graphics Card Gets Listed on Amazon

Last month AMD released their RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 graphics cards to combat NVIDIA’s RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super graphics cards. However, we only saw reference design of the RX 5700 XT and 5700. They were the first one to be reviewed and released in the market. The problem with AMD’s reference design is that it tends to get hot and noisy, like really hot due to the limitations of a blower cooler. This month board partners will be releasing their custom variant of the Radeon RX 5700 XT and 5700. Recently, Gigabyte’s Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC 8G gets listed on Amazon. At the time this article was published, it is still out of stock with no definite shipping date. However, you can pre-order it. It’s a tad expensive than the reference pricing of $399, but it is expected that custom designed graphics card would be (slightly) more expensive than the reference one. Check out more details below.

Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC 8GB Graphics Card

The Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC 8G (GV-R57XTGAMING OC-8GD) features the company’s tri-fan design, very similar to a Windforce OC variant. It will come with a factory overclock speed, as indicated on its name “Gaming OC”. The graphics card itself actually looks very similar to the Gigabyte RTX 2060 Super and 2070 Super Gaming OC. I more positive that its cooling solution will be adequate to keep the 5700 XT GPU’s temperature at bay.

As to how much factory overclocked speed will we get out of this variant compared to the reference model is somewhat unknown at this time. Gigabyte hasn’t officially posted this model on their website at this time, and the page on the Amazon didn’t indicate it as well. But based on the performance of the Gigabyte RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super Gaming OC that shares the same cooler design, I’m positive that this variant would not disappoint as well.

Of course, aside from the cooling design, the rest of the specs and features are basically similar with the reference RX 5700 XT. We just don’t know the final boost clock speed yet, or if the memory is overclocked as well. But board partners nowadays don’t usually overclock the memory anymore. They just bump up the boost clock speed, improve the cooling solution and provide a “better” PCB layout, design and components.

We won’t be having this graphics card for review, I’m not sure yet. But a custom RX 5700 XT from MSI is coming. Stay tune for that.

Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC Price and Availability

Like I mentioned earlier, at the time this article was published you can pre-order the said graphics card, but it’s currently on a “temporarily out of stock” status. It’s also listed with a retail price of $419.99, which is $20 more from the reference RX 5700 XT. That’s not bad considering it offers a significantly better cooling solution. Meaning it is expected to run cooler and with lesser noise compared to the reference model. For the latest pricing and availability please check out the link(s) below.
