It’s unfortunate that the recent launch of the Radeon RX 580 graphics cards isn’t anything to be excited about due to the lack of any major performance improvements over its predecessor. But is it the same case with the MSI Gaming X Radeon RX 570 4G? Let’s find out.
Design and Features
Not much has changed as MSI has maintained the same chassis design throughout all its Gaming X cards of this generation. The huge TROX 2.0 fans with its Dispersion Fan Blade design helps to generate 22% more air pressure to aid the 8mm TWIN FROZR VI copper heat pipes for maintaining lower temperatures during gaming. The Zero Frozr feature automatically stops the fans in light-load situations for maintaining a super-silent experience.
Users will be able to control the colors and animation effects of the LED lights through the MSI Gaming App. For better stability during overclocking sessions, the card features an 8-phase PWM design with high-quality solid capacitors and Super Ferrite Chokes to ensure reliability and greater efficiencies.
We wonder why MSI failed to install a backplate on the MSI Gaming X Radeon RX 570 card. It’s not a low-end card by any means.
That said, users will have the flexibility to choose between different output ports that include two HDMI’s, two Display Ports, and one Dl-DVI-D port. However, you’ll need an 8-pin power connecter to run this card.
Specification and Testbed
The new Polaris 20 XL GPU on the MSI Gaming X Radeon RX 570 comes with a base gaming clock speed 1281 MHz and climbs a litter higher to 1293 MHz in OC mode. However, the 2048 stream processor unit count is the same as the previous Radeon RX 470. The 4GB GDDR5 memory configuration is also the same with 7000 MHz memory clock speeds (7100 MHz in OC mode profile).
