XFX gets even Thicker
The XFX RX 5700 XT THICC II received a very warm welcome from the Radeon community. Not all reviewers shared this enthusiasm about the new card, but nonetheless, it is a card to remember.
The THICC II is a dual fan edition packed into 2.7-motherboard slots. It is a design referencing the R9 280X Double Dissipation series, the most iconic and elegant design at the time.
Since we are at it, maybe you were curious where the THICC product name originated from. You might want to look at the post from XFX employee from 2 months ago here.
The new version featuring three fans will be called THICC III, which makes you wonder if RX 5500 gets a THICC I model as well.
There are now three THICC II models: THICC II (57XT8DFD6), THICC II Ultra (57XT828D6) and another THICC II Ultra with a different product code (57XT8DBD6). There is also an RX 5700 version called Double Dissipation (57XL8LBD6).
The THICC III Ultra (57XT828D6) is one of the fastest RX 5700 XT on the market. Based on our research it is only slower than ASUS ROG STRIX OC (with a peak clock at 2035 MHz). The THICC III Ultra has a peak clock of 2025 MHz (please note that in our database the Navi boost clock is AMD’s game clock – as it should be).
