MSI has announced four new AMD graphics cards based on the recently announced AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT. The graphics cards, which are available as normal and overclocked models, come from the Gaming and Mech product lines of MSI.
The Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming and Mech debut with MSI & # 39; s innovative Power Allocation technology that basically ensures that the graphics cards get their power from the power supply instead of the PCIe slot. According to MSI this produces a much cleaner power signal.
The Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming and Mech graphics cards use MSI & # 39; s dual-fan cooler, but with different designs. The Gaming model stays true to the black and gunmetal gray theme with red accents, while the Mech model combines the black with a steel gray. Both come with a beautiful brushed metal back plate that must reinforce the graphic card and at the same time improve the appearance.
The cooling solutions for the Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming and Mech use two Torx 3.0 fans for a good mix between performance and silence. The fans use MSI & # 39; s Zero Frozr function, which only turns them on when the operating temperatures of the graphics card exceed 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit).
The MSI offering largely meets the AMD specifications Radeon RX 5600 XT. Each graphics card has 2304 Stream Processors (SP & # 39; s) and 6 GB 12 Gbps GDDR6 memory.
The only difference is in the working clocks. The Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming X is the fastest in the game with game and boost clocks up to 1,460 MHz and 1,620 MHz respectively. The Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming and Radeon RX 5600 XT Mech OC are in second place with 1,420 MHz game and 1,600 MHz boost clocks.
|Fashion model||Basic clock speed||Game Clock Rate||Boost Clock Rate|
|MSI Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming X||1,235 MHz||1,460 MHz||1,620 MHz|
|MSI Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming||1,185 MHz||1,420 MHz||1600 MHz|
|MSI Radeon RX 5600 XT Mech OC||1,185 MHz||1,420 MHz||1600 MHz|
|MSI Radeon RX 5600 XT Mech||1,130 MHz||1,375 MHz||1,560 MHz|
|AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT||?||1,375 MHz||1,560 MHz|
The Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming X measures 297 x 140 mm and occupies two PCIe slots. It has one HDMI 2.0b port and three DisplayPort 1.4 outputs for connecting your displays. It also has a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
On the other hand, the Radeon RX 5600 XT Mech OC is 231 x 127 mm. It still requires two PCIe slots for installation and has the same display outputs as the Gaming X. However, the Radeon RX 5600 XT Mech OC only needs one 8-pin PCIe power connector for proper operation.
AMD's Radeon RX 5600 XT comes with a 150W TBP (typical board power) target. MSI recommends having at least a 450W power supply for its new graphics cards with Navi power.
The new graphics cards from MSI appear on January 21; However, MSI did not specify any prices.
Gigabyte and Sapphire today also announced modified Radeon RX 5600 XT cards.
