Radeon RX 5700 Navi Graphics Cards From AMD's OEM Partners Leak
In just a few more days, AMD and its OEM partners will begin selling new Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards (Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700) based on the company's 7-nanometer Navi GPU architecture. As retail availability draws closer, we are starting to see leaked press renders of the new cards, including ones from AMD's hardware partners.
We have already posted leaked images of the retail packaging for AMD's own Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics cards, including images of the gold-trimmed 50h Anniversary Edition models. The same source for those shots has also uploaded a bunch of press renders of various OEM models.
You can see two of them in the image above—both are Radeon RX 5700 XT models, one from ASUS (left) and one from Sapphire (right). Several other OEM hardware partners are locked and loaded as well, however, including both familiar and not-so-familiar brands to buyers in the US.
ASRock falls into the 'familiar' category. The former subsidiary of ASUS is ready to debut at least two models, including a Radeon RX 5700 XT and a Radeon RX 5700. These appear to stick to the reference script—in the image above, you can see the indentation in the Radeon RX 5700 XT, which is in the shape of a 7 (when peered at from above).
PowerColor is another familiar brand, and like the others, it is readying Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 models with reference cooling solutions. It will be interesting to see what kinds of custom coolers emerge, but for now, it seems that AMD and its OEM partners are pushing stock designs.
XFX is also planning to release a card, according to the leaked renders, but much of the image is heavily edited/censored. There is not much to look at and so we've refrained from reposting. If you want to see it anyway, hit the link in the Via field below.
As for the brands that are less familiar in the US, they include Datalands and Yeston. Both also have Radeon RX 5700 series cards on tap.
The GPU wars are ongoing, but the stage for the next battle is now set. We will see AMD's Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 cards duke it out with NVIDIA's just-announced GeForce RTX Super lineup, which essentially consist of souped-up versions of the GeForce RTX 2080, 2070, and 2060.
Stay tuned, as there will be a whole bunch of benchmark comparisons to digest next week.
