PowerColor has just unveiled the world's first, Mini-ITX, Radeon RX 5700 graphics card. The RX 5700 ITX from PowerColor features all the goodies of AMD's Navi 10 GPU architecture, packed in a small ITX form factor which should make this card a perfect choice for SFF PC builders.
PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 ITX Brings SFF Design To Navi 10 - Available on 20th December But Exclusive To Japanese Market
The PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 ITX is an interesting little card that packs a lot of punch. The RX 5700 ITX is based on the Navi 10 GPU architecture which means that it features 2560 cores, clocked in at 1465 MHz base, 1625 MHz game, and 1725 MHz boost clocks. The Radeon RX 5700 ITX also features 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, running across a 256-bit bus interface at 14 Gbps, pumping out a total bandwidth of 448 GB/s.
As you can tell, the card sticks with the stock frequencies and doesn't come with a factory overclock due to the size and cooling constraints. Talking about the cooler itself, the card features a dual-slot design with a matte black colored cooler shroud. It includes a single fan that blows air towards the central heatsink. The fan features 0dB technology and wouldn't spin until the temperatures cross 60C.
Talking about the heatsink, PowerColor has stated that the card features a large aluminum-finned block which is comprised of four 6mm wide copper heat pipes. The whole card is just 175mm total in length, making it a perfect option for users who want a powerful Radeon graphics card inside an SFF / Mini-ITX setup. Display options include a single HDMI 2.0b and dual Display Port 1.4 ports. A large exhaust vent can be seen next to the display ports which is needed for this tiny card to blow out the hot air.
