Gigabyte previously gave AMD’s RX 580 the Aorus treatment but for one reason or another, Vega was skipped over. Now, with AMD’s RX 5700 series out in the wild and finding success, Aorus is back on the menu, with the AORUS RX 5700 XT set to launch within the next few weeks.
While a proper unveiling has yet to take place, one of Gigabyte’s community managers did tease the Aorus cooled version on Reddit this week, posting two images of the card:
The AORUS Radeon RX 5700 XT is going into mass production next week, with availability apparently due a couple of weeks after that. With that in mind, this card should be available by late November or early December.

KitGuru Says: While custom versions of RX Vega were quite rare, board partners have been making a bigger push for the RX 5700. AMD’s Navi architecture is off to a good start and there will be more on the way, with cheaper, entry-level and higher-end versions planned. Are any of you thinking about upgrading to an RX 5700 XT? Would you be interested in the AORUS version when it launches?
