    Nice 5700 is an excellent upgrade from X80/590 but the thermals weren't funny

    Naming aside, benchmarking it against the reference card.
    Let's see thermal and sounds improvement

    I've always owned AMD but Now I have a 1080ti , I haven't been this excited for an AMD card in a long time . Save us from high prices AMD !

    That backplate design looks great.

    Navi needs AIB cards like now! Those blower cards are AIDS.

    Asrock GPUs seem to be the cheapest ones of all manufacturers by a fair margin. The cooler in the pictures is adequate performance wise and neatly fitted in place. More expensive models will surely offer much better cooling and longer warranty, since Asrock only offers two years. This Asrock card if cheap enough will serve me fine, but I wish there will be no coil whine. Coil whine is an issue manufacturers should try to nullify completely. Most likely Asrock has done nothing to prevent it.
    For those who want a reasonably silent card at load I would not recommend the XT variant of this Asrock card; beefier cooler is required.

    Ah ASRock, the company you buy from when you're okay with buying alpha stage experimental hardware which may be good or a complete catastrophe. And as is standard for mobo manufacturers, no actual support to speak of.

    ...... I'd buy from them again. It's not like the others are better.

    How long have they been in the video card market?

    It means card can challange nvidia super cards and costs less.

    I am surprised at the tardiness of AIBs. Being first w/ an alternative to blower models HAS to be a great sales opportunity.

    ^ Agreed. Chomping at the bit to get a 5700 XT, it'll make my 1070 look silly and I need more 1440p performance.

    But you may be able to get Blower card + Accelero Xtreme 4 for like $450.
    And that brings me to actual AIB prices for custom design PCB and cooling. (+dual vBIOS switch.)

    Same here. Hoping custom 5700XT will be in the 600$ CAD range. 2070 Super is great value but still 700$ CAD is a little bit more than i would be willing to pay and the 5700XT almost performs pretty much the same.

    I've removed the distasteful image....

    At this point, I'm wondering how much you get paid to attempt to troll every AMD thread..... Quite frankly, those of us planning to buy the new AMD cards don't give 2 shits what NVidia does or releases.
