Custom Radeon RX 5700 video cards from ASRock and MSI

Earlier this month we published our review of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT "Navi" video cards. The reference maps have a more relaxed with a wind tunnel principle. Those who are not satisfied with this 'standard' version can opt for a variant with a custom cooler. ASRock and MSI have already shown their options.

ASRock has developed a "Challenger" variant of both the RX 5700 and 5700XT. The models have a more cooling with two 100 mm fans and a heat sink with copper 8 mm heat pipes. The XT also has an aluminum backplate. The clock frequencies of the Challenger RX 5700 and 5700XT are 1675 and 1650 megahertz, respectively, and are clocked, successively, 50 and 45 megahertz higher. The maximum boost clock has remained unchanged in both models.

MSI has also released more details about its custom video cards. Four versions come from both the RX 5700 and 5700XT. In addition to a Gaming X, Evoke, and Mech model, an Air Boost variant is also coming onto the market. More specifications are not yet known at the time of writing. We do know that the MSI cards will only become available mid-August.
