XFX ships its flagship Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra in a decently-attractive box, and will most likely grab your eye on a retail shelf somewhere just from its 'THICC' branding.

On the back we have some small details on the RDNA architecture, and some details on the AMD technology included like FreeSync 2 HDR, FidelityFX, Image Sharpening, and Anti-Lag technologies.

Here we have it: XFX's new Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra in all its glory from the front. It looks good from here, but there are better angles of this card.

The backplate on the back looks great, and keeps the card cool -- even after hours under load the backplate wasn't too hot to touch.

From the bottom, we have a thicc (geddit) card that comes in as a 2.5-slot card.

Some of the finishings on the card like this chrome-like style on the edge of the card adds to the overall hot rod look.

But man, it's this grill at the end of the card that makes the XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra stand out. In the right system, it just looks mean. I can see some modded car-style PCs being made from this card.
