Pros: Fast, quiet, more affordable compared to other 6700XT cards, runs great.
Cons: A little warmer than the 5600 XT (~5-10C (70-72C) when pushing its limits, where the 5600 XT would max out around 63C. No RGB lighting or logos.
Overall Review: I finally got and installed the XFX SWFT 6700 XT tonight. I have a Ryzen 2700X, ASUS Strix B450-Itx mobo, 32GB 3200 RAM, 1TB Samsung 970 EVO, and upgraded from a Sapphire Pulse 5600 XT. While not the ideal hardware for this card, I did see some huge improvements over the 5600 XT. The biggest FPS jump I seen so far was in Resident Evil 3 Remake, which went from 90-95 FPS (5600 XT) to hitting 160-165 FPS with the 6700 XT (145 FPS in heavy action)- both cards were running it maxed at 1440p. It runs about 5-10C warmer than the 5600 XT. Hottest temps I seen so far was 71C GPU & 91C junction temp when playing Sword and Fairy 7, which is extremely GPU intensive (supposedly that game even gives cards like the 3080 TI a workout). There are some games I play that have frame rates locked at 60 FPS and those games used to push the 5600XT at 98-99% GPU usage in 1440p. After upgrading to this 6700 XT, I upped things like Render Resolution (1.2 to 1.5) and anisotropic filtering (4x to 8x). The XFX 6700 XT card seems to be running in the mid 50C range and to low 60C GPU temps, while running at 70-80% GPU usage and keeping things running smooth at a locked and steady 60FPS. On the 5600XT, the same game at those settings would run at low 40s FPS along with some stuttering. As for the fans, they are not audible to me. The CPU fan on the AMD Wraith Prism cooler is the loudest fan in that case and easily drowns out all other fan sounds. I have not heard any sound differences between the idle and intense gaming sounds coming from the case. All in all, I am pleased with the 6700 XT. I play at only 1440p, which was a bit much for the 5600 XT I had been using since February 2020. It was nice to finally get smooth and high frame rates in 1440p. I am impressed because I am using a Ryzen 2700X and a B450 motherboard in an ITX case (InWin A1 Plus with a 650W gold PSU).
Pros: Very capable GPU Will run most games at 2k max graphics
Cons: Max fan speed is set to 80% stock Will run hot if fan curve isnt manually set Depending on case sizes it may not fit, rather long cooler
Overall Review: Other than the card running hot with the stock fan curve, it's been a great addition. With some fan tuning, at full load my GPU junction temp doesn't break 70 C, and total GPU temp doesn't break 55 C. Currently will run Ready or Not max graphics 2k res at 420 fps without Vsync. CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 32 GB DDR4 ram at 3200Mhz X570 Elite Aorus MB MSI M480 SSD
Pros: 1080 gaming
Cons: Encountered a bug for some reason every time I play certain games
Overall Review: Big upgrade from my rx580 8g
Pros: - Idling at 33 C, like 60 under load - Quiet - Idles at 5-6 Watts, didn't expect that - Good performance, good value - Looks clean. No RGB (not for me), nice and flat - Did I mention it idles at 33 C and 60 under load
Cons: Literally none
Overall Review: - Buy it
Pros: I bought this to replace a MSI 5700 Mech O.C. 8GB card, which was still a pretty decent, but this Swift 309 6700XT is in another class. I ran the benchmark in "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" with everything on Ultra settings except RT Shadows which were set to "high" at 2k and got 60 FPS with solid 1% lows. Oh, and it was BEAUTIFUL! I could have gone for the 6800XT, but now I'm glad I didn't since I upgraded to a very nice Corsair 850 watt power supply with the money I saved. 😁
Cons: No Cons at all.
Overall Review: Ig you are looking for a very good gaming card without breaking the bank, this is it.
Overall Review: Very good 👍
Pros: Really nice GPU, doesn't overheat, excellent for 1440p gaming and it's really cheap right now. I highly recommend it
Cons: None, had it over a year now and it's working like a charm
Overall Review: Yes
Pros: Quiet, cool, and a much bigger upgrade over the the MSI RX 5700 XT Gaming X than I thought it would be. Runs 30-40c cooler than the 5700xt was, and 20-30c cooler at the junction. I highly recommend this card and xfx. I will be buying xfx cards again. Was not happy with the msi card. solved all of the issues I had with that card.
Cons: none at this time.
Overall Review: highly recommend, would buy again, will probably buy xfx card again for next machine or upgrade.
Pros: 3 fans for better cooling, so they're not ramping up as fast and loud as a 2 fan card
Cons: the fan curve/profile needs adjusting - default settings was letting it reach 93 and 94*C under moderate load, which is high. i think it's 97 or 98*C the card will start throttling itself (cutting down performance to let it cool) . I didnt want to push it any harder with higher settings in Cyberpunk, in fear of it reducing performance. If your case is air cooled, It needs to be a wind tunnel to let it run on default setup.
Overall Review: Get MSI Afterburner and setup a custom fan curve profile. After I did this, i dont cross 70*C
