China's RX 5700 XT WAIFU Video Card by Yeston | Review & Tear-Down

  • Published on Dec 5, 2019
  • A few weeks ago, we received the Yeston RX 5700 XT Waifu video card for review, using AMD's latest Radeon GPU. The Waifu is the predecessor to Yeston's Cute Pet.
    Sponsor: Gigabyte Z390 Master Motherboard ( - Amazon)
    Find our Yeston RX 580 2048SP Cute Pet review here:
    Snowflake returns to help us analyze the Yeston RX 5700 XT Waifu card, featuring a floral pink shroud with dotted holes, three fans of varying sizes, and a painted backplate with an anime character on it. Predictably, this is the card's primary selling point, and based on our testing, it may also be its only selling point.
    If you're interested in 5700 XT cards, you might also find the below interesting. The above link to the RX 580 2048 SP (570, basically) CUTE PET is interesting for its uniqueness, if that's more your style of graphics card.

      the shroud and backplate. im sure u can find people. for me my friend did a custom one so it was red with a spiderman design. so it would fit the rest of my stuff i have. and he charged 40 euros 56 dollars?
      he said mostly for the cost of the paints and time spent.

    Hi - Is there any chance you could do a video on ambient temperatures? I'm pretty sure gamers in hotter climates are pulling on the short end since I suspect specs and running temps and adaptive cooling and what not is made for 20/25 degree Celsius environments, while here in Africa(and many other places) where I am my room can frequently get 35ish if I don't use AC, but it's a dry heat so it's not so bad for me but seems to be for my PC. It will be fun to realize that millions of gamers are getting up to 10% less performance just due to their climate. Someone in Europe running idle 70 degrees due to OC means that same setup may get up to 90 just by being in a different place. This is okay for overclocking but I suspect stock components of being guilty of this. I think almost no component will run as advertised in a 35 + degree environment while there are many places that get these temps. I know this can just be done by numbers, but a practical confirmation episode would be cool. To sum it up, I think hot climate users are getting throttled almost from the get-go with some components and anyway a hell of a lot sooner.

    So, get a Sapphire Pulse, pay some artsy dude/tte 50 bucks to paint the shroud and backplate, win?
    Actually, how big of a deal would be painting the shroud? Paint on top of the metal will probably mess up the heat emission somewhat.
