The stock AMD Radeon RX 5700 graphics card is pretty impressive (review). However, PowerColor is pretty confident they can make big improvements. Their new Red Dragon Radeon RX 5700 is one of their sleekest looking cards in a while. It features their stunning new cooler design, improved power delivery, and promises bigger performance right out of the box.

The new PowerColor card runs at 1720 MHz in game mode, and up to 1750 MHz in Boost mode. A nice step up from the 1565 MHz base clock! To unleash this extra power, it comes equipped with “Platinum Power Kit – DrMos” hardware. That means digital power control, improved capacitors, and more. To cool all of it, a bank of 5 x 6mm copper heatpipes over a massive aluminium heatsink. This is topped with their powerful 100mm fans for big airflow. The cooler is so efficient, it doesn’t even need to spin the fans until the card his 60c.
