Corsair is adding to its Vengeance family of gaming PCs with the new Vengeance 6180 and Vengeance 6182. The machines are pretty well stacked with respect to performance thanks to their use of AMD hardware for both the processor and graphics cards. Both Vengeance systems comes with a compact, cube-shaped chassis with see-through panels and customizable RGB lighting to show off its innards. On the processor front, Corsair has equipped the Vengeance 6100 Series with a potent AMD Ryzen 7 3700X processor, which is an 8-core/16-thread SKU with base/boost clocks of 3.6GHz and 4.4GHz respectively. Also on deck is a Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Along for the ride is 16GB... Read more...
AMD introduced its first Navi 10-based GPUs over the summer starting with the Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT. While these are excellent mainstream GPUs based on 7nm process tech, they by no means offer flagship-caliber performance. However, if these latest rumors are accurate, AMD will have a true Radeon VII successor on its hands with the alleged Navi 21 GPU. Navi 21 will be based one second-generation RDNA architecture, and will take advantage of refined 7nm+ process tech.  Based on comments posted to the Taiwanese forum PTT, Navi 21 will roughly be twice the size of Navi 10, coming at a 505mm2 versus 251mm2. To put in perspective how big this GPU is, the Radeon VII (Vega 20)... Read more...
XFX caught some heat (pun intended) when its Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II first landed because it was reported to run hotter and louder than some of the other custom cooled models on the market. While we have not tested XFX's variants, the Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC III Ultra model uses a different cooler that does a much better job of keeping temps in check. Not to worry though, if you already purchased a THICC II model, you can contact XFX for a free cooler upgrade. In addition, XFX apparently swapped out the cooler on its Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II models and replaced it with the same one as found on the THICC III cards. "The THICC II cards now have the same copper cooler the THICC III cards are... Read more...
Just days after NVIDIA released its latest GeForce Game Ready driver for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, it's AMD's turn to flex its software muscle with the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 19.10.2. For those that are hip to installing the latest drivers for their hardware as soon as it's released, this latest driver update comes with some big upsides. For starters, AMD is advertising up to an 18 percent gain in performance in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with these drivers. However, AMD stipulates that this performance uplift is with the enthusiast-class Radeon RX 5700 XT. Not be left out, like the NVIDIA Game Ready driver released earlier this week, the new AMD driver... Read more...
It seems XFX is adding another "THICC" graphics card to its lineup. This latest entry, the Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC III Ultra, ups the ante with an even larger frame than the other THICC models, to make room for three cooling fans instead of two. It will also be one of the fastest Radeon RX 5700 XT cards out there, assuming the leaked specs are correct. This will be the fourth THICC entry in XFX's Radeon RX 5700 XT lineup. Ones that have already launched include the following... XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II (RX-57XT826D6) XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra (RX-57XT828D6) XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra (RX-57XT8DBD6) I'm not clear on why there are two separate SKUs for the Radeon RX 5700...

AMD's Ryzen 3000 series processors have made a positive impact on the PC enthusiast market, the likes of which we haven't seen in years. From a performance-per-dollar standpoint, AMD's disruptive Zen 2 architecture offers a strong value proposition for new desktop PC builders from all walks of life and for many use cases including gaming, content creation and other workstation-class requirements. In fact, we were so impressed by Ryzen 3000 series processors in our launch review, that we decided we needed to have AMD's new architecture in our production flow here at HotHardware. This also presented us with an opportunity to call upon a few industry friends like Maingear Computers, Gigabyte, EVGA... Read more...
Despite any rumors you may have read to the contrary, AMD is not discontinuing reference variants of its Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards a mere month after introducing them to retail. In an effort to put the matter to rest, Scott Herkelman, AMD's corporate vice president and general manager of the Radeon division, hopped on Twitter and set the record straight. "We will continue to offer the Radeon 5700 series reference design on AMD.com and select OEM, retail, and etailers. However, we are fully transitioning our AIB [add-in-board] partners over to their own custom designs," Herkelman wrote. Herkelman's comment is reference to a report from a few days ago over at Cowcotland, in which the... Read more...
One of the first preorders for a custom Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card has materialized on Amazon. There is a new listing for Gigabyte's Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC 8G model, which sports three axial cooling fans instead of the blower-style cooler found on reference models. As to when it will ship, though, the listing does not say. It only says "Temporarily out of stock," albeit with the option of adding the item to your cart and/or purchasing it. "Order now and we'll deliver when available. We'll email you with an estimated delivery date as soon as we have more information. Your account will only be charged when we ship the item," the list says. AMD previously said its hardware partners would... Read more...
One of the first retail listings for a custom Navi card has appeared, which also gives us a glimpse of Sapphire's first non-reference model among the Radeon RX 5700 series. The card in question is Sapphire's Radeon RX 5700 XT Pulse, and it appears on a retail site in the UK priced at £428.99 (which converts to around $521 in US currency). The card is not actually available to purchase or preorder yet, though. Instead, the listing at OverclockersUK says, "This product is available soon!" That could mean as early as next week—AMD has gone on record saying custom cards from its hardware partners will start appearing around the middle of August. Sapphire's Radeon RX 5700 XT Pulse model... Read more...
If Paul Revere was still around and he was into PC gaming, he would be storming the streets yelling, "Custom Navi cards are coming!" We already know this, of course, because AMD has already indicated that its hardware partners will launch custom Navi models starting around the middle of August. Ahead of the anticipated launches, some leaked models have found their way online, including a Red Devil variant from PowerColor and a THICC II card from XFX. Source: Baidu Starting with the former, a user on the Chinese forum Baidu posted some pictures of what he claims is PowerColor's Red Devil Radeon RX 5700 XT. From the pictures, it is a physically large graphics card with three axial cooling fans,... Read more...
AMD’s first-party family of Radeon RX 5700 7nm Navi graphics cards first landed in early July, and shortly after that launch, the company confirmed that custom cards would be available from its board partners in August. Since that time, we’ve seen some official and leaked Radeon RX 5700 cards from the likes of ASRock, MSI, and XFX. Today, it’s ASUS’ turn, as images of the ROG Radeon RX 5700/5700 XT Strix OC and the Radeon RX 5700/5700 XT TUF Gaming X3 have appeared on the internet.  The ROG Strix OC cards have a triple-fan design, feature extra precautions to prevent dust from mucking with the fans, and a 0dB operating mode to help cut down on annoying...

During the most recent episode of its Insider livestream, MSI shared some details about its upcoming Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards, including its custom models. One of those product families, the Mech Oc series, will feature dual-axial fans and factory overclocks when they become available several weeks from now. Here in the early going, every single Navi card that is available at retail uses AMD's stock cooling shroud, which is a blower-style cooler. They also stick to reference clockspeeds. However, custom cards are definitely coming—AMD confirmed they will start arriving around the middle of August, and ASUS has said it will have custom models available in September.... Read more...
It will be exciting to see what kind of custom designs and factory overclocks AMD's hardware partners come up with, as it pertains to Navi. Those will start trickling into retail around the middle of August. In the meantime, a video has surfaced of a reference Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card being modded and overclocked to 2.2GHz. At stock speeds, the Radeon RX 5700 XT has a 1,605MHz base clock and 1,905MHz boost clock, to go along with a new metric AMD has started using, which is a 1,755MHz game clock. As we explained in our review of Navi, AMD's claim is that the actual GPU clock will likely fall somewhere between the game clock and max boost clock during real-world gaming sessions. In our...

Could it be the end of the line for AMD's Radeon VII flagship consumer graphics card? That might indeed be the case according to a new report making the rounds late this week.  According to the report, the Radeon VII has been has reached end-of-life status and supplies of the card are drying up fast. French site CowcotLand states the cards have been disappearing off store shelves and when cards are found in stock, they are slapped with a significant price premium compared to MSRP. We decided to do some checking ourselves, and visiting Newegg showed that four out of the five Radeon VII cards that the retailer sells are out of stock. Only the ASRock Phantom... Read more...
