XFX Rs XXX Edition Rx 570 4GB OC Review, Mainstream Just Got Better!

Power, Thermals and Noise

Power

Power Consumption we took while running MSI Kombuster and the Furry Torus at 4K with the video cards stock speed in force.

We left the XFX RX 570 next to the RX 470 so you can see relative power consumption. AMD had to add 30 – 35W to the TBP to get the extra 40-80MHz on the boost core so these cores are wound pretty tight out of the factory but we are sure we can coax some OC out of it.

Temps

For our thermal testing, we ran MSI Kombuster at the 4K resolution for a total of 30 minutes then recorded the maximum temperature.

We ran Kombuster Furry Torus at 4K for 30 minutes and came up with a max temp of 74°C which is a perfectly acceptable result.

New Noise

The fan noise level of the ran about 34dBA on average but increased to 39dBA on Kombuster. We could force higher noise levels with 100% fan but we never saw the original fan curve hit more than 40 – 50%.

Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.

  1. I wanted to understand the logic of testing a product designed for 1080p only at higher resolutions. This does not make sense.
