    This is the bang for your buck that AMD has been needing. But is it too late? and at what cost?

    The only way that these cards are successful if they are more powerful than the 580s and 590s and the 1660 and 1660 super since the 5500xt failed to do that.

    Yes, but looks could misslead... The RX 5700 XT THIIC II is one of the worst, if not the worst, AIB specimens out there...

    Very true. The cooling on that card really really sucks.

    Thicc III fixed that. Evoke was the worst i think.

    Some issues spotted on the XFX 5600XT.
    Looks okay.

    Closer inspection.

    Here we see the power stages previously mentioned, but one thing you may also notice is the inductor/choke, which is cracked. There are three of the eight primary VGPU inductors which are cracked, and this means one of two things. Either the components used were of low quality, or the inductor was damaged or bad and has cracked from the inherent vibration of the coil, which can lead to eventual coil/inductor whine issues that can plague a GPU.

    Here we got an even closer look at the inductor damage. I cannot say that a poor quality part causes this, but I can say that it does not look like any exterior force damaged them. The reason I make this assertion is that there is a bulging outward apparent, as you can see in the image, which tells me that the failure is from internal stresses.

    That card is on crack for sure.
