    Looks good, massive heat pipes under that shroud.
    Let's see a review, and a hefty price cut.

    What happened to "sapphire will sell custom 5700xt for 399$" news few days ago?

    Hmm was expecting the first one up to be the usual Nitro or Nitro+ with Pulse later on since the top end GPU's seem to have a more limited quantity although as seen with the earlier GPU models re-releases also happens on occasion.
    (Nitro, Nitro+ and Nitro SE for the 580 from memory for one example.)

    Price is a bit high but I suppose we shall see what the store pricing lands at when it's actually available in a larger quantity plus differences between US and EU and other territories and markup and early availability and pre-order extra costs and all that.

    EDIT: Although a 5800 Nitro could also be a possibility though the differences aren't generally that big between these different designs, will be fun to see what the reviews for these recent announced custom models tell though I guess the water block route is already a possibility and that should be among the best means for reducing the heat and getting fan noise and such down from the default blower design. :)
    (Short of any PCB changes or bits that some of these designs might have over the default though even that is probably over-engineered like usual not that that's a bad thing ha ha.)


    EDIT: And from a few posts it looks like the 5700XT is almost catching up to the VII now with 6 - 8% difference on average, quite impressive. :)
    (Though the early reviews already had the 5700 and 5700XT exceeding Vega 56 and 64 by a bit and even closing in on the VII so seeing that shrink further isn't unexpected and then a good cooling solution maybe tinker with clock speeds and voltage a bit and it can probably get very close.)

    Pulse is entry level for Sapphire. Nitro+ is one to look at for.
    But that does not make Pulse bad.

    On other hand, what does one need from custom card? Better VRMs? Reference card has them superb already. And they are pretty cool even when OCed.

    So in case of RX 5700 (XT) it would be Core and memory cooling. And I expect that this one will do. Let's see.

    If the prices we are seeing from boardpartners are correct, one may well just go balls in and buy a stockcard+ waterblock instead.... or just the 2070... sadly.

    Don't buy a 2070. Stick it to the man.

    My plan exactly. You can now get a stock Sapphire 5700 XT for 400€, plus 150€ for the EK block and fittings. You get performance, silence, and better looks, for maybe less money than what you'd need for a top tier AIB card.

    Regular 2070 (non super) are dropped in price and can be found at 400$. You still have great performance on pair with 5700xt while having rt also. These AMD cards are doa unfortunately.

    Aha, sure. I found 1(one) game where xt was beaten by 2070. Regular 2070, MSI armor, so probably type u had in mind...
    All other games xt was leading.
    RT? As for now is crap. Occupied with heavy fps loss. U have 1, max 2 effects, nothing close to real RT. Enable RT and ur game became unplayable. Ofc if u like 60fps area, it's fine, enjoy...I prefer 140+

    The 2070 is not on par with a 5700XT. It's close but not on par.

    According to guru3d in BFV at 2k it's 21 frames behind a 5700XT. In SOTTR it's 12 frames behind. In Metro Exodus 12 frames behind. In Strange Brigade 9 frames behind. In New Dawn 13 frames. And so on i did not check the old games.

    The 2070 is also discontinued and those price are while supply last.

    It's really strange that a lot of guys went from best fps to RTX. Couple of years ago best fps was the most important thing. And it made sense. And i did agree with it as i ran in my computer Intel/nVidia from 2007 to 2017 and i'm still having a nVidia card right now.

    But now strangely fps doesn't matter anymore it's all about the glorious RTX. Yeah right i'll spend the next 3 years playing games at 1080p on my 2k screen to get half-assed (imo) ray tracing support. Make sense. Not it doesn't to me and that's why i'm looking forward to the reviews or the custom versions of this card.

    If i had the money for a 2080Ti then yeah sure. But at this price point i think the 5700XT is very interesting. I waited 20+ years for ray tracing i can wait another 3 years easily.

    At this point I'm not buying any GPU that has is guaranteed to have a lesser basic feature set, than the next console generation.

    Anything that is not at least 8/16, 16+GB RAM, Nvme, Raytracing, is by default a short term investment unless there's no other way.
    The 2070 Super is not that bad of value compared to this, and I would go Navi only if the absolute amount of money was that important only.
