ASUS has idle fan stop that disables the fans when the card isn't being stressed, RGB lighting (of course), and 8+6-pin PCIe power connectors.

ASUS also has the TUF Gaming X3 Radeon RX 5600 XT EVO graphics card, which maintains the why-the-hell-is-it-a-triple-slot design, but with the TUF X3 cooler.

We still have 3 x Axial-Tech fans, idle fan stop tech, and a metal backplate. But, the TUF Gaming X3 Radeon RX 5600 XT EVO is powered by a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.
