The Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards, officialized by AMD at E3 together with the Ryzen 9 3950X, will be available starting July 7, with prices of 379 and 449 dollars respectively for Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT. Those that we will see initially on the market, however, could be exclusively AMD reference versions, this is at least what the recent report from fudzilla.com suggests.
As reported, the first custom models of the partners will be available only starting from mid-August, and this only in the best scenario, that is if everything will proceed smoothly with the various projects.
It is quite unusual that in the launch phase AMD does not propose customized versions by the partners, however the various producers have found themselves struggling with a new architecture which, at least to what the source suggests, requires a little more time to be optimized to rule of art.
On July 7th the various models of Radeon RX 5700 will be exclusively produced by AMD, with various brands (ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte etc.) that will do nothing but apply their own sticker on the package.
It is known that custom models usually have a better cooling system and a greater propensity for overclocking, however on this occasion it must be said that AMD has proposed a very valid reference-design, both as regards the power supply section and for the cooling system.
At the moment it is not clear whether the Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT will share the same design, but the features of the Radeon RX 5700 XT illustrated by AMD show a solution that does not have much to envy to a custom graphics card. On board there is a power supply with 7 + 1 phase VRM and a cooling system with vapor-chamber technology, further optimized with an aluminum cover and back plate to cool the PCB better
