The ROG Strix Radeon RX 5500 XT is armed to dominate PC gaming. Components on the surface of the PCB are precisely soldered with Auto-Extreme Technology and two powerful fans leverage our new Axial-tech design, which surpasses our own industry-leading fans from the last generation. In-between those layers are a myriad of additional features like 0dB mode, IP5X dust resistance, a protective backplate, and more.
Axial-tech Fan Design
Better, faster, stronger
Newly designed for the latest generation of top-end ROG graphics cards, these fans feature a smaller hub that facilitates longer blades and a barrier ring to increase downward air pressure.
An advanced onboard controller brings fans to a standstill when the GPU core temperature is below 60 Celsius, letting you enjoy light gaming in relative silence. As temps rise past the threshold, the fans automatically start up again.
Do you prioritise low core temps or low noise levels? Performance mode will let the fans spin up to keep the card running cool all the time. Quiet mode keeps the same power target and top-end settings, but offers a less aggressive fan curve for quieter operation at medium temps. For even more customisation and control, check out our GPU Tweak II software.
Precision automated manufacturing
Auto-Extreme Technology is an automated manufacturing process that sets new standards in the industry by allowing all soldering to be completed in a single pass. This reduces thermal strain on components and avoids the use of harsh cleaning chemicals, resulting in less environmental impact, lower manufacturing power consumption, and a more reliable product overall.
Super Alloy Power II
Premium power components
To deal with varying game and application workloads, the RDNA architecture can change speeds in an instant, necessitating a power delivery circuit with the reserves to handle the onslaught when you dial up the clock. The Strix is armed with premium capacitors, DrMOS power stages, and alloy-core chokes capable of pushing performance to the max.
That’s so metal!
The PCB is reinforced by an aluminium backplate that adds structural rigidity, helping to prevent flex and protect components and trace pathways from damage.
Outshine the competition
The Strix features Aura RGB lighting on the shroud. Aura Sync software connects compatible products for a completely customised lightning setup. You can sync to music, change colour based on temperature, or select from a large number of patterns and static options. Look out for the Aura Sync logo when you’re picking parts for your build.
Be a ninja
Sometimes you just want to turn off all the lights… That’s why we’ve outfitted your graphics card with a convenient stealth mode button. Give it a press and you’ll instantly transform from a master of the colour-verse into a stealthy ninja.
ASUS FanConnect II
Smarter fan speed
FanConnect II features a 4-pin, hybrid-controlled header that can be connected to both PWM and DC system fans for optimal system cooling. Connected fans react to GPU and CPU temperatures, so that your system is optimally cooled no matter what you do. A comprehensive set of tuning options allow you to tweak fan speeds for your preferred balance of cooling and acoustics.
