XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra Video Card Review

XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra Specs

The XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra has a base clock of 1730MHz, a game clock of 1870MHz and a boost clock up to 1980MHz.  For comparison, the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT reference video card has a base clock of 1605MHz, a game clock of 1755MHz and a boost clock up to 1905MHz.  Right off the bat, you can see a major advantage of this video card.  The base clock is 125MHz higher, the game clock is 115MHz higher and the boost clock is 75MHz higher.

To achieve those clock speeds in a consistent way the XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra utilizes XFX’s Ghost Thermal 2.0 design.  This video card has nearly twice the heatsink surface area, making it THICC to provide better cooling.  The heatsink is 90% larger.  There are 4x 6mm composite heatpipes.  In addition, it uses two 100mm fans in an axial fan design that reduce noise by 35%.  With the Zero DB fan system it will shut-off the fans below a certain GPU load and temperature. 

XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra Pricing

The XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC II Ultra has an MSRP of $450 while the non-Ultra is $430.  The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT reference MSRP pricing is $399, so these video cards do have a price premium.  The “Ultra” version we are reviewing is $50 more than a bog-standard reference Radeon RX 5700 XT.
