XFX appears to be prepping a THICCer Navi GPUs - The RX 5700 XT THICC III Ultra
Images of XFX's Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC III Ultra have appeared online, arriving via Videocardz. Alongside these images, the clock speeds of this graphics card have also been released, revealing a gaming clock speed of 1935MHz. This clock speed is 65MHz higher than XFX's Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II.
When compared to AMD's reference RX 5700 XT, the gaming clock of XFX's THICC III model is 10.3% higher than AMD's reference gaming clock speed of 1755MHz. This should deliver gamers a hefty performance boost over AMD's original RX 5700 XT GPU models.
With their RX 5700 XT THICC III, XFX plans to bring forward the best possible performance from AMD's RDNA architecture and Radeon RX 5700 XT. This comes with the same chunky aesthetic as XFX's existing RX 5700 XT THICC II, albeit with an extended finstack and an additional fan.
Like XFX's existing THICC II, the THICC III will feature a 2.7-slot design, scaling this graphics card to a thickness that's a lot larger than most modern graphics cards. While this necessitates the use of a larger PC case for some users, it also grants the GPU a chunky appearance, where it's chrome-like elements are reminiscent of classic cars and other luxury items.
Looking at the THICC III, it seems clear that XFX remains committed to AMD/Radeon, and the scale of this GPU heatsink also shows that XFX is preparing themselves for the prospect of larger Radeon graphics hardware. Perhaps we will see this cooler, or one that's similar to it, on AMD's rumoured RX 5900 XT. If AMD's planning a "Big Navi" graphics card, XFX appears to be ready for it.
At this time, XFX's Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC III Ultra hasn't been officially unveiled. Even so, we look forward to seeing this graphics card hit the market. Simply put, more consumer choice is never a bad thing, and the prospect of a faster RX 5700 XT isn't something that should be scoffed at.
