Description

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5500 XT OC 8G graphics card with four featuer icons

Radeon RX 5500 XT OC 8G

Introducing the GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5500 XT, the new 1080p gaming challenger that lets you smoothly play today’s most AAA titles. It’s powered by future-ready technologies, including 7nm Radeon RDNA architecture, GDDR6 memory, and PCI-Express 4.0. WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System keeps the GPU cool when the action heats up. Ultra Durable certified components ensure superior durability and overclocking capability. Performance tweaking only takes a few clicks with intuitive AORUS Engine utility.

WINDFORCE 2X COOLING SYSTEM

The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features 2x 90mm unique blade fans, alternate spinning fan, 3 composite copper heat pipes, heat-pipe direct touch and 3D active fan functionality, together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.

Alternate Spinning showing airflow direction

ALTERNATE SPINNING

The GIGABYTE “Alternate Spinning” is the only solution that can solve the turbulent airflow of three fans. The biggest problem with the three fans is turbulence. Since the fans rotate in the same direction, the airflow direction is opposite between the fans, which will cause turbulent airflow and reduce heat dissipation efficiency. GIGABYTE turns the middle fan in the opposite direction, so that the airflow direction between the two fans is the same, reducing the turbulence and enhancing the airflow pressure.

UNIQUE BLADE FAN

The airflow is spilt by the triangular fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the airflow.

3D Active Fan close look

3D ACTIVE FAN

The 3D Active Fan provides semi-passive cooling, and the fans will remain off when the GPU is in a low load or low power game. It allows gamers to enjoy gameplay in complete silence when the system is running light or idle.

HEAT PIPES DIRECT TOUCH GPU

The shape of the pure copper heat pipes maximizes the direct contact area with the GPU, enhancing heat transfer. The heat pipes also cover the VRAM through a large metal plate contact to ensure proper cooling.

composite internal design

COMPOSITE HEAT-PIPE

The composite heat-pipe combines thermal conductivity and phase transition to efficiently manage the heat transfer between two solid interfaces which increases cooling capacity.

BUILT STRONG
Ultra Durable badge and power chokes

EXTREME DURABILITY

The graphics card uses the better power phase design to allow the MOSFET to operate at lower temperature, and over-temperature protection design and load balancing for each MOSFET, plus the Ultra Durable certified chokes and capacitors, to provide excellent performance and longer system life.
