The New And Improved Gigabyte AORUS Radeon RX 5700 XT 8G
Third Clock Is The Charm?
Have you noticed that many Navi cards prefer to list three clocks; a game, a boost and a base? In this particular case, you will see your game clock jump from a reference frequency of 1755MHz to 1905 MHz, which happens to match the reference boost clock. The boost clock of this card therefor has jumped, in this case up to 2010MHz, but the chances you will ever see that steadily maintained is rather unlikely. At this point listing a base clock of any nature is somewhat uninformative, but for the curious this particular RX 5700 XT operates at 1770 MHz in those scenarios where a base clock actually matters.
Gigabyte did a good job on this card, the WindForce 3X cooler helps the chip maintain noticeably higher frequencies than the base model and comes much closer to pushing aside a RTX 2070 Super than other models. The Guru of 3D included the Titan X in their comparison list and you will be please to know that an overclocked RX 5700 XT can beat that monster in most tests!
Gigabyte has released a new Radeon RX 5700 XT in its premium brand AORUS, which we review. It is one of the faster 5700 XT cards we've had our hands on. Fitted with a thick three fan cooling solutions and a Silent / OC BIOS we have lots to talk about and check out of course.
