AMD announced its Radeon RX 5500 series recently, but now it appears that XFX is the first with a custom Radeon RX 5500 graphics card in the form of the new THICC II.


XFX's upcoming Radeon RX 5500 THICC II should roll out with a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, drops the awesome-looking grill that the Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra sported, and uses a full-black design. It still looks great, with a black shark fin design in place of the car grill-style of the RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra.


Interestingly, XFX is providing 2 x DVI-D ports (AMD doesn't even include a single DVI port on its RX 5500 series reference design) as well as a single DP and single HDMI connector.


We will have more details on the XFX Radeon RX 5500 THICC II as it becomes available, for now enjoy the pics!
