PowerColor's custom Radeon RX 5600 XT RED DRAGON is definitely not the coolest-operating RX 5600 XT that I've tested, with my sample running at 74C under load. To put this into comparison the ASRock RX 5600 XT Phantom Gaming runs at 59C, the MSI RX 5600 XT GAMING X at 68C and the SAPPHIRE RX 5600 XT PULSE OC at 58C.
The PowerColor RX 5600 XT RED DRAGON falls roughly into line with the other custom RX 5600 XT graphics cards, with my entire Intel Core i7-8700K test bed consuming 210W with the card installed. This is up 20W from the ASRock RX 5600 XT which consumes 190W in the test bed.
