At $430, ASRock's Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi OC+ is one of the more affordable high-end Radeon RX 5700 XT offerings on the market right now. In our review, it earned four stars, partially for its very speedy boost clock and quiet operation.
In our ASRock RX 5700 XT Taichi X 8G OC+ review earlier this month, we were pleased with how quiet the graphics card was and the power behind its three-fan cooling. At the time, however, we were concerned about the competitive of its price, considering you could find lesser rivals with three-fan cooling for $400. Now, the card just got a bit more competitive.
One thing to take into consideration is that the Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi OC+ is a very beefy graphics card. It measures 324.5mm long and requires up to 2.5 slots in your system. Nevertheless, the graphics card's oversized body means cooling won't be an issue on the Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi OC+.
ASRock has slipped in a very thick heatsink, reinforced metal frame for the PCB, two 90mm and one 80mm cooling fans. The fans themselves are equipped with the 0dB silent cooling feature, meaning you will only see them spinning when the graphics card is under a heavy load. ASRock has also endowed the Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi OC with the brand's Polychrome Sync RGB lighting on the middle fan and an attractive 3D metal backplate.
The Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi OC has six display outputs that include two HDMI 2.0b ports and four DisplayPort 1.4 ouputs. In terms of requirements, the graphics card draws external power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe connectors. We recommend a 700W power supply as the minimum.
Lastly, ASRock includes it's own Taichi Tweak software so you can monitor and tweak the Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi OC.
