XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT THICC III Ultra Review



The second version of the XFX Thicc famously had a few issues. We take a look at the third edition and see if it pushes the RX 5700 XT to new heights.

I watched this review and I agree with you Tom, it's great that XFX took it on the chin and then made a better product as now more people will by their product knowing they try and do the right thing.

If at first you don't succeed, make another card.

Oh well, at least they've sorted it out.

It's about the only triple slot card I'd entertain buying, I love it's aesthetic - kudos to XFX for going back to the drawing board and returning with a great product.

I remember Evga sending free thermal pads to everybody for screwing up with their original 10 series cards a couple years back. To compare these two, Evga used mostly regular post for things that weighed 5 grams, and occupied near zero space in shipment. XFX is shipping an entire cooling assembly that weighs over 500grams, and takes up as much space as a hard cover book.


Evga got worlds of praise, XFX is talked here in quiteness really.



Funny story, a year ago or so Evga tried to charge me - as the unhappy customer - around the globe shipping for a defective product that was under warranty (CLC280 that had the worst cold plate defect that would cause the shape of the plate to push any thermal paste out within days, which also died within a few days of the RMA request very luckily - I didn't send the cooler in as getting a new one from Corsair was about the same cost as the shipping Evga wanted). I share this experience because of how much it was that they charged me as XFX must be going through a lot of shipping costs because of this. Well done XFX.

the nicest looking card on the market.

The ONE and ONLY thing I dislike is when looking at it from the front. The chrome plate inbetween each fan looks flimsy and cheap. The rest of it just oozes excellence.

THICC III aka What THICC should have been in the first place.

Respect to XFX for sorting it out, but the THICC II shouldn't exist, it should have a different cooler like the Sapphire Pulse and Nitro.

If you go THICC, you go full THICC or not at all.
