Powercolor's custom RX 5700 XT starts at $399

by on01 August 2019

Possible three custom versions

Powercolor has once again teased its upcoming custom versions of the Radeon RX 5700 series, saying that these will start at $399 for the custom RX 5700 XT, which is pretty much the MSRP of the reference card as well.

We asked around our retail/e-tail sources, and it appears that Powercolor might have a total of three custom versions, including the high end Red Devil version. If we got the information correctly, both the RX 5700 and the RX 5700 XT will have a Red Devil version, in addition to two other custom versions.

It is possible that we will be looking at a triple-fan cooler for the Red Devil, and some sort of dual-fan cooler for other two custom versions, which will most likely end up to be the Red Dragon series, just like it was the case with the RX 570 and the RX 580 lineup. Earlier, Powercolor teased its upcoming Red Devil card, saying that it has been redesigned, so we expect redesigned aesthetics, an updated cooling solution, and a custom high-end PCB, of course, with additional overclocking potential.

The good side of the story, at least according to our sources, is that these custom cards will be on retail/e-tail shelves as soon as they are announced, and this should happen sometime in mid-August. We are not sure if the entire lineup of custom RX 5700 series graphics cards from Powercolor will be available from day one, but the flagship Red Devil series is one of the first to come. 

With the starting price of $399 for the custom RX 5700 XT, and hopefully $349 for the custom RX 5700, these custom cards will be flying off the shelves, especially since the blower-style cooler on reference cards is not doing the best of jobs.
