Detailed Look: AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

 

AMD has had some cool packaging for previous Radeon graphics cards, and while the Radeon RX 5700 XT isn't the most premium, it is better than bad packaging and definitely better than the lower-end RX 5700 packaging. It reminds me so much of the Founders Edition packaging from NVIDIA for both the GeForce GTX 10 and RTX 20 series cards. Anyway, I dig the style -- check it out:

Here is the front of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT reference card box.

Once you open the box, AMD wants you to Bend The Rules with Radeon RX 5700 XT.

Here it is! AMD's new Navi-based 7nm-built Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card in all its glory... FINALLY!!!

I really dig the back of the Radeon RX 5700 XT, except I would've liked the GPU Tach from Vega on Navi. Sigh. The black backplate and red racing stripes... love it.

The end of the RX 5700 XT.

From the top.

AMD requires an 8+6-pin PCIe power connector on the new Radeon RX 5700 XT.

The iconic KINK, which I like.

AMD provides 3 x DP and 1 x HDMI for video outputs on the Radeon RX 5700 XT.

The box of the Radeon RX 5700 in comparison is... well... boring.

On the front of the regular Radeon RX 5700 it is much more plain, and not as exotic as the Radeon RX 5700 XT.

No backplate on the RX 5700 reference model.

Not much going on at the end of the RX 5700, unlike the Radeon branding on the RX 5700 XT.

The top of the Radeon RX 5700 is plain again, I would like some larger Radeon branding here.
