Test Setup and Overclocking

PowerColor Red Devil RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT LE Review

Test Setup

As with any of our testing we always want to be able to compare results as like for like as possible. For the RX 5700 XT that means testing on our current GPU rig which doesn't utilise PCI Express 4.0. However, given the performance of these new Radeon cards we don't think the already fat PCI Express 3.0 bandwidth particularly influences the results in a negative manner.

Overclocking

The Red Devil comes out of the box with a beefy overclock in place already so there isn't a lot of headroom left to push it a little further. Obviously each GPU is individual and PowerColor go with something guaranteed to work on all their silicon so we could still stretch the overclock until the GPU cried enough, and then backed off until it was stable.

You're comparing non-OC'd results to OC'd, it's 69c (red devil) vs 73c (reference) OC'd or 64c vs 68c stock, while the Red Devil's clocks are higher in both comparisons I think.Quote

That something being those reference temperatures. I'd love to know what fan speed and ambient temps OC3D had to get those results considering every single other reputable reviewer noted that the stock cooler is not fit for purpose and the card runs hot as hell.Quote
