Plenty of custom cards from day-one

A couple of Radeon RX 5500 XT graphics cards have leaked ahead of its rumored December 12th launch, suggesting there will be plenty of custom cards available from day-one.

There have been plenty of reports for AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 5500 XT, and while it appears that the Radeon RX 5500 (non-XT), reviewed earlier by, will remain OEM-exclusive card, the Radeon RX 5500 XT will be available on the market, and it was just a matter of time before some of these cards have leaked online. managed to get their hands on pictures of three different cards, one from ASRock and two from Gigabyte, suggesting that the RX 5500 XT won't have a reference version, and AMD AIB partners will have plenty of custom versions from day-one.

In case you missed it earlier, rumored specifications suggest that the Radeon RX 5500 XT will pack 1408 Stream Processors, and come with 4GB or 8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU Boost clock should be set at 1717MHz. This should put Radeon RX 5500 XT ahead of Nvidia's GTX 1650 Super, at least in terms performance, but, unfortunately, there is still no word on the price, with some of the first listed cards in China spotted with 1499 ($212) price tag.

As noted, got pictures of three different Radeon RX 5500 XT cards, including ASRock's Challenger D 8G OC, which is a factory overclocked card with dual-slot, dual-fan design, and slightly higher 1737MHz GPU Boost clock.

There are also pictures of two Gigabyte cards, the RX 5500 XT Gaming OC and RX 5500 XT OC. The Gigabyte RX 5500 XT Gaming OC version uses a hefty triple-fan cooler and the same 1737MHz GPU Boost clock. The RX 5500 XT OC verison uses a dual-fan Windforce 2X cooler and both versions should be available with 4GB or 8GB of VRAM.

There should be plenty of more information as we draw closer to the launch date and, hopefully, the most important piece of the puzzle, the price, will show up soon.
