The new TUF Gaming series sits under the premium ROG Strix family of custom RX 5700 series cards, still offering a custom deisgn but it is priced cheaper than the premium offering. There's a singel look bet ween the custom TUF Gaming X3 RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT cards, with a triple-fan cooler keeping everything cool.

As for clock speeds, ASUS has the TUF Gaming X3 RX 5700 XT at 1650/1795/1905MHz for base, gaming, and boost clocks respectively. The lower-end sibling in the TUF Gaming X3 RX 5700 is clocked at 1565/1720/1750MHz respectively.

ASUS uses a TUF "urban camo" pattern with an army-style plastic cooling shroud, with the metal backplate donning the same look. ASUS is using a custom-designed PCB that is also shorter than the ROG Strix-based RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT cards.

We're looking at 3 x 80mm fans keeping the TUF Gaming X3 Radeon RX 5700 series cards cool, but the fans won't spool all the way down and stop with no idle fan-stop unfortunately.
