Images of what appears to be AMD's first custom Radeon RX 5500 series graphics card have appeared online, revealing what could be XFX's THICC II model, which ships with a twin-fan cooler, a full-cover backplate and an 8-pin power input. The images in this article come via Videocardz.

Unlike most modern graphics cards, the XFX's apparent RX 5500 design features dual DVI-D outputs, a single HDMI connection and a DisplayPort 1.4 port. This is a rare configuration for a modern graphics card, though it reflects the reality that many low-end GPU users are still using older DVI monitors. 

While this graphics card is likely to be a Radeon RX 5500 series graphics card, there is also the possibility that this is an AMD RX 5500 XT. The Radeon RX 5500 XT is a rumoured graphics card model which will feature more stream processors than AMD's already announced RX 5500. AMD's RX 5500 uses 22 GPU compute units, whereas AMD's Navi 14 silicon is rumoured to feature a total of 24 compute units.

Given the low power design of AMD's RX 5500 series of graphics cards, it is likely that XFX will also release a smaller, ultra-compact variant the RX 5500, delivering end-user a graphics card design that's well suited to small form factor systems and OEM system builds. 

At this time, all AMD has told us about Radeon RX 5500's consumer release is that custom models from ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, Sapphire and XFX are all due to release this quarter.
