Not long ago I took a look at the XFX RX 5700 XT Thicc II Ultra and while there were some aspects of the card that I liked, like the styling. I wasn’t impressed with its cooling performance and the price point that they had it listed. It was being sold as a flagship card but didn’t have flagship performance. Well XFX reached out and let me know that the price on the Thicc II was dropping and they had a new three fan design that would be coming, the Thicc III Ultra. Because I’ve seen a lot of people who think that the II and III in the names is the revision number, no it represents how many fans the card has. Anyhow I went through and retested all of our RX 5700 XT’s including the Thicc II Ultra and then tested the new Thicc II Ultra as well and today I’m going to check out the new card and see how it performed in our test suite. Is the new model enough to justify a flagship price? We will have to find out!

I always take a look at GPU-Z to confirm that the listed specifications for the card match what I am seeing and while GPUz hasn’t been the best at showing information on the RX 5700 cards things have improved. This time around it has the boost and base clocks correct and they match the spec list from XFX. The Thicc II Ultra comes in with a boost clock of 2025 MHz and a base clock of 1810 MHz. For comparison, the reference card has a base clock of 1605 MHz and a boost of 1905 Mhz. The Gigabyte Gaming OC I just took a look at overclocked the base clock to 1650 MHz but had the same 1905 MHz boost clock and the Thicc II I previously took a look at was the only one previously that had an overclocked boost clock at 1980 Mhz and a 1730 MHz boost clock. So the Thicc II Ultra has a BIG overclock, even compared to the Thicc II.
