PowerColor Launches Radeon RX 5700 XT Liquid Devil w/ Pre-Installed Water Blockby Anton Shilov on November 20, 2019 4:00 PM EST

PowerColor has introduced one of the industry’s first custom Radeon RX 5700 XT-based graphics card with a pre-installed water block. The board uses cherry-picked Navi 10 GPUs as well as an enhanced VRM to maximize the board's overclocking potential, something that will be appreciated by those looking for peak performance.
PowerColor’s Liquid Devil 5700 XT (AXRX 5700XT 8GBD6 WDH/OC) relies on a custom 12-layer PCB with a 10-phase digital VRM that uses solid-state coils, DrMOS modules, and high-polymer capacitors to handle over 300 W of power. The card is equipped with a water block designed by EKWB that features a nickel-plated copper base as well as the Liquid Devil logotype. The board has two 8-pin PCIe auxiliary power connectors and the manufacturer recommends that it's used with at least a 700 W PSU.
Out of the box, the PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT Liquid Devil features GPU boost clock of up to 2070 MHz, the highest frequency of AMD’s Navi XT chip on a commercial card to date. Meanwhile, the key feature of the video card is its overclocking potential which promises to be very high because of the advanced VRM and a liquid cooling system.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the video card has three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs and an HDMI 2.0 port.
PowerColor’s partners will start sales of the Liquid Devil 5700 XT starting November 25 at an MSRP of $599/€599/£569.

Great_Scott - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkGPU liquid cooling is a PITA for most rigs.
I wonder if those overly-expensive external TB3 video card enclosures could be configured with an integrated liquid cooling system. It probably wouldn't add all that much to the cost.
firewrath9 - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkGigabyte's got you covered.
For a water cooled, card, probably 100$ for the block, 100$ for rad/fan, and 100$ for pump/res/fittings, and those are can go much higher. 150-200$ block's aren't uncommon, and neither are 25$ fans or 100-120$ radiators. D5 pumps can cost up to 100$, and fittings for 10$ ea.
so Gigabyte's 2000$ eGPU = 2080 Ti (1200$) + 450W PSU (50$) + GPU Block (100$) + Rad (100$) + Pump (100$) + Enclosure (200$) = 1800$. Not that bad actually
sonny73n - Thursday, November 21, 2019 - linkAt $1500 I might consider it, if it’s from another brand. Gigabyte NO!
neogodless - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkTypo in first paragraph: "Naxi"
Making assumptions from the photos but did not see it mentioned in the article... you pick and choose the color of the liquid that you put in the system? Can you mix them? Do they hold their color or dissolve into green and brown sludge if you mix them?
Hxx - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkyou can definitely mix dyes which is what those are and u should be able to use them in any coolant... but obviously u want clear . As far as mixing them , you will create whatever color comes out , that’s why it’s recommended to mix the dyes separately outside the loop to get the color u want.
benedict - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkNice card, but paying 600$ for a 400$ card makes no sense. That puts it between 2070 super and 2080 super and both of those are better cards even without overclocking.
firewrath9 - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkPeople bought waterblocks for GTX 1070s last gen, and those were like 400$ cards.
A high-end 1070 (say a strix) + waterblock = ~550$
A red devil is 430$, so the block upgrade is 170$. Not that bad considering you get some dyes.
beginner99 - Thursday, November 21, 2019 - linkYou also get a better bin, not just the block. But yeah if you can get simply a better card for same money, it's not very useful.
Dragonstongue - Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - linkcost of EK block factory mounted and with warranty coverage, sounds about right to me...note, I will not buy liquid anything till it is BUILT IN to the die/chip itself (IBM have already proven is able to be done)
At some point in not so distant future they (designers of high performance) GPU-CPU etc will likely have no other option, will likely be mandatory once Optical based becomes ready to RTM world wide (only a matter of time and infrastructure to make it possible)
Cryio - Thursday, November 21, 2019 - linkThe binning is insane.
JayzTwoCents randomly dialed 2200 Core Clock with no modified power delivery and 1.169V and it ran average at 2150 MHz.
I'm still testing with PowerPlay mod to make my Red Devil 5700 XT to run at higher than 2040 MHz without artifacts.
