Getting A Faster RX 5700 In A Flash
Flash At Your Own Risk … As Always
TechSpot liked the performance of the PowerColor RX 5700 Red Devil, but not the price tag as it is within $50 of the RX 5700 XT model. While reviewing the card they were offered some interesting advice, this model can be flashed with an XT BIOS which not only increases your base clocks but allows you to push your overclock to the limits of an XT model. They tested this out with a different card, they replaced the BIOS on their XFX RX 5700 DD Ultra with one from a THICC II Ultra which bumped up the frequencies from 1810 MHz to around 1920 MHz. There is one small drawback, the card now pulls more power than before, but you can always mitigate that with your favourite overclocking tool … or feed it even more power if you are feeling lucky.
In addition to our launch day reviews of the Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT, we followed up with extended comparisons, overclocking, and more. Most recently enthusiasts have gone further though, by tinkering and flashing vanilla RX 5700 cards with 5700 XT BIOS, making them instantly faster at no extra expense.
