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

The GIGABYTE “Alternate Spinning” is the only solution that can solve the turbulent airflow of adjacent fans. Since the adjacent 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 adjacent fans in the opposite direction, so that the airflow direction between the two fans is the same, reducing the turbulence and enhancing the airflow pressure.

ALTERNATE SPINNING

 

 

Smooth Airflow : better heat dissipation

STANDARD SPINNING

 

Turbulent Airflow : worse heat dissipation

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

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 maximize 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 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

EXTREME DURABILITY AND OVERCLOCKING

The graphics card uses the better power phases 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.

PCI-E 4.0 SUPPORT

Gigabyte Radeon RX 5500 XT OC features PCI-Express 4.0 support, with a throughput of 16 GT/s and enables two times the bandwidth compared to PCI Express 3.0. With the PCI-Express 4.0 supported motherboard, and get ready for the next generation of PC gaming.

FRIENDLY PCB DESIGN

Fully automated production process ensures top quality of the circuit boards and eliminates sharp protrusions of the solder connectors seen on the conventional PCB surface. This friendly design prevents your hands from getting cut or inadvertently damaging components when making your build.

PROTECTION BACK PLATE

The back plate not only provides an aesthetical shape, but also enhances the structure of the graphics card to provide complete protection.

IN TOTAL COMMAND

The interface and functionality of the software is subject to each model.

AORUS ENGINE

The cutting edge intuitive interface allows you to adjust the clock speed, voltage, fan performance and power target in real-time according to your game’s requirements.

If you’re looking into building a gaming PC, it is essential to pick the right GPU for your setup. The process of choosing the right GPU, however, can be nerve-wracking, as there's so much to consider, from the type of monitor you’re using to the size of your chassis and more.

If you are well-aware of your PC requirements and performance goals within a given budget, it’s quite easier to pick a GPU as per your needs. Here are a few factors that need to be taken into account before purchasing a GPU.
 

AMD or Nvidia: The GPU market is flooded with hundreds of graphics card from dozens of manufacturers. But only two companies – AMD and Nvidia – make the GPUs that power these components.
 

If you’re on a tight budget, go for AMD. There is none to beat AMD in terms of price. AMD offers powerful budget, mid-range, and upper-tier GPUs at a competitive price. 

If it is the performance that matters to you the most, Nvidia should be your go-to choice. Nothing from AMD can outperform Nvidia’s top-tier cards today. Nvidia, however, comes with a hefty price tag.

AMD Radeon RX graphic cards seem to consistently offer more bang for your buck in the lower price bracket. Nvidia, on the other hand, rules the high-end GPU market with more powerful and expensive cards.

The monitor requirement is another factor that should determine your purchasing decision. What does your monitor supports – Nvidia G-Sync or AMD FreeSync? Both of these technologies synchronize the refresh rate between the video card and the display to eliminate tearing. It is crucial to choose a GPU that is compatible with your monitor.
 

Graphics Card Memory: For serious gaming at 1080p, you better opt for a graphics card with at least 3GB of memory. It is recommended to go for 4 GB though. You’ll need more memory if you play with all the settings turned up or you install high-resolution texture packs. For gaming at higher resolutions such as 1440p or 4K, 8 GB or more is ideal.

Also, you need to pay attention to memory bandwidth. Data ready to be processed by the GPU is usually stored on the card’s dedicated memory called as GDDR3, GDDR4, GDDR5, or GDDR6. Note that GDDR5 memory provides twice the bandwidth of GDDR3 clocked at the same rate.
 

Compatibility: Check the dimension of the graphics card before making a purchase, as you need to be certain that there will be space in the case for your GPU. 

Take note of the power supply as well. How many amps can it supply on the 12v rails? How many watts is it rated for, and how many six- and eight-pin PCIe connectors does it have? Cross-reference this information with the graphics card you want to buy. If your computer can’t handle it, you’ll want to look for a graphics card that will require less power or consider a power upgrade.

Lastly, check the ports. Some monitors use DisplayPort, others have HDMI, and some older units only use DVI. Ensure the card you want to buy has the connectors you need for your monitors. If you buy a card with different ports from the ones on your monitor, you may have to buy an adapter at an extra cost.
 

CUDA Cores / Stream Processors: While CUDA cores don’t tell you much about performance, they are very important, especially in gaming. CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) is Nvidia’s proprietary parallel computing language that works to leverage the GPU in specific ways to perform tasks with greater accuracy. A CUDA core is Nvidia’s equivalent to AMD’s Stream Processors.

The more the number of CUDA cores or Stream Processors, the better the GPU is at rendering outstanding visuals. This is very important for handling intensive graphics work or in gaming where frame rates are paramount.

TDP Values: Just like CPU, the GPU produces heat for all the processing work it does, which is shown by its TDP value. TDP values indicate the amount of power required to keep the GPU at an acceptable temperature. The more power the GPU requires; the more heat it will produce. As such, always go for the GPU with the smallest TDP value.

If you take all the issues mentioned above into consideration while purchasing a GPU, you are most likely to end up with a PC that delivers the desired output, in general. Investing in a capable GPU will not only get you a capable PC for graphic intensive work but also give you a more fluid and immersive gaming experience.
