The new creation of PowerColor Impressive in both performance and design - just a shame the official price is completely wild
To the Navi cards of AMD There is a lack of models in the dedicated design and development of its partner manufacturers that will be both high-quality and interesting, and do not disappoint in their actual characteristics in relation to the cooling of the chip developer's original reference - and PowerColor's fresh Liquid Devil model undoubtedly stands out with Cooling And shows that no other actress in the category is currently. It's a shame it only happens in one of the highest price increments we've met.
The new model can be described very easily - this is theRadeon The first RX 5700 XT, and in fact the first Navi model, which comes with a block Cooling Water by default - and it is not only more elegant than air cooling (at least in the eyes of some consumers) but also allows to tell very high operating frequencies directly from the factory.
Collaboration with popular water cooling manufacturer EK resulted in the creation of a uniquely designed full cover block for the Liquid Devil, along with an improved 12-layer printed circuit board and carefully selected Navi 10 cores from the plant to ensure that they successfully withstand a maximum frequency of 2,070MHz - An upgrade of almost 18 percent compared to the standard base frequency in cards Radeon RX 5700 XT, which can usually be rushed by only about 8 percent on average (in products whose processing cores are not preselected to be the top in the top).
There is no arguing that the Liquid Devil is probably the best-performing Navi model to be purchased today - but with a recommended price of no less than $ 600 it is not only expensive at $ 200 and even $ 220 of models Radeon Other RX 5700 XTs on the market (up to 58 percent difference in price for an additional up to 20 percent performance), but also more expensive than the competitor's powerful GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER, and even dangerously close to some of the GeForce RTX 2080 models given. Obtainable in stores today. In addition, it is worth noting that the Liquid Devil is not able to function on its own right out of the box - and will need a system Cooling Water with a pump and radiator to feed and cool the coolant it needs, so this is another possible financial launch for those interested in the product.
Modern products of AMD, In all markets, manage to create a positive name for themselves and commercial success first and foremost thanks to surprisingly good cost-benefit ratios - and unfortunately the Liquid Devil completely erases this element. We are very happy to see more original and interesting experience for the cardsRadeon, But at the same time cry out for a (much) more reasonable price tag as soon as possible. Do you agree or think that this is actually a bad deal? Count in the comments!
