During the most recent episode of its Insider livestream, MSI shared some details about its upcoming Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards, including its custom models. One of those product families, the Mech Oc series, will feature dual-axial fans and factory overclocks when they become available several weeks from now. Here in the early going, every single Navi card that is available at retail uses AMD's stock cooling shroud, which is a blower-style cooler. They also stick to reference clockspeeds. However, custom cards are definitely coming—AMD confirmed they will start arriving around the middle of August, and ASUS has said it will have custom models available in September.... Read more...
The initial flurry of Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards that are available at retail sites like Amazon and Newegg are all based on AMD's reference design, with the stock blower-style cooling shroud. Navi cards with custom cooling solutions are coming, though, as leaked slides by MSI confirm. In case you are wondering, AMD stuck with the blower-style cooling solution for Navi because it expels hot air directly out of the case. The coolers are similar on the Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700, though not exactly the same—the former has a indent in the shape of a "7" (because of Navi's 7nm manufacturing process) that supposedly optimizes airflow, and a vent on the rear...

Earlier today, we presented you with our review of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2070 Super. You can think of both cards as a preemptive strike against the yet-to-be-released Radeon RX 5700, Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition.  Although we suggest that you read our review to get a full idea of how the new Super cards perform, there should probably be some cause for concern from the AMD camp. With that being said, the first round of cards from NVIDIA's OEM partners have been announced, and should be hitting store shelves within the next few weeks. This afternoon, we have entries from EVGA, MSI and Zotac. You should already be familiar... Read more...
AMD is looking to one-up Intel on numerous fronts with its Zen 2-based announcements at Computex 2019. In addition to introducing us to the first members of the Ryzen 3000 family, AMD also introduced the X570 chipset that natively supports the new processors. Perhaps the biggest feature addition with X570 is the availability of PCIe 4.0 support, and MSI is taking full advantage of that additional bandwidth by showcasing a new [unnamed] Phison PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe PS5016-E16-based SSD. Needless to say, this PCIe 4.0 SSD delivers some scintillating performance according to MSI. In the provided CrystalMark benchmark (seen below), the Phison-based SSD was able to record sequential read/write... Read more...
MSI just announced several upgraded workstations. All of the new workstations will incorporate NVIDIA Quadro RTX graphics and 9th Gen. and Intel Core i9 processors. The lineup also includes the MSI WS65, the first laptop that is powered by a NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics card. MSI WS65 MSI will soon release their WS65, WS75, WP65, and WE75 mobile workstations. Each workstation is now lighter with ultra-thin bezels, includes a 4K screen, and incorporates MSI’s Creator Center software, SolidWorks, CATIA, AutoCAD, and ANSYS. He devices also adhere to the United States Military Standard (MIL-STD 810G). The device are able to withstand severe conditions, including extreme temperatures and... Read more...
At long last, AMD formally introduced its next-generation Ryzen 3000 series of desktop CPUs based on its Zen 2 architecture, along with an accompanying X570 chipset. Coinciding with the announcement, ASUS opened up its warchest of new X570 motherboards, but there are several other hardware partners with X570 boards of their own. Let's have a look at what's out there. Gigabyte Gigabyte X570 Aorus Xtreme Starting with Gigabyte, the company so far has unveiled eight X570 motherboards, including one under its own brand and seven more under its Aorus division. The flagship model of the bunch is the X570 Aorus Xtreme (shown above). This board is absolutely built for overclocking—it has a 16-phase... Read more...
With AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop processors right around the corner, we've seen a number of leaks regarding the complementing X570 motherboards that will underpin them. The latest include two entries from a favorite company for enthusiasts: MSI. Although MSI hasn't official announced its AMD X570 motherboard lineup, two have leaked today. The first is the X570 Gaming Pro Carbon, which includes 12-phase VRM. If you look adjacent to the AM4 socket, you'll also see that the motherboard support MSI's Core Boost and DDR4 Boost technology to automatically optimize the clock speeds of both your processor and memory. Other items of note include four DDR4 memory slots to accommodate up... Read more...
All of those Encyclopedia Brown books I read as a youngster are now paying off. How is that? Well, MSI posted a partially cryptic image on Twitter that, if you don your detective cap like I have done, reveals itself to be a teaser of one of the company's unreleased X570 motherboards for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 3000 series processors. Let's look at the evidence, shall we? Before we get to the image, here's what we know: AMD is prepping a new round of Ryzen processors based on its third-generation Zen architecture, called Zen 2 (the previous two generations include current Zen+ and last generation Zen). AMD plans to at least talk about Zen 2 (and Navi, on the GPU side) during Computex next month,... Read more...
In case you haven't been keeping up with all things Turing, NVIDIA is reportedly set to announce a new budget graphics card this week. Called the GeForce GTX 1650, this new SKU will sit at the very bottom of NVIDIA's Turing graphics card lineup. With an official launch eminent, it should come as no surprise that retail cards are beginning to leak out of the woodwork.

NVIDIA is attempting to push the industry forward (and simultaneously make a profit, of course) by implementing dedicated ray tracing hardware into its latest generation Turing GPU, a feature that is a staple of its GeForce RTX series. Since launching its RTX lineup, however, NVIDIA has also made available a cheaper version of Turing that lacks real-time ray tracing and DLSS hardware, and it appears yet another model is about to enter the fray. After having recently launched the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660 (in that order), there are rumors of a GeForce GTX 1650 to follow. It seems like a foregone conclusion at this point. Lest there be any doubt, though, an entry for an MSI GeForce... Read more...
It appears as though MSI is ready to go with several versions of NVIDIA's not-yet-announced GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, all it is waiting for is an formal unveiling. We heard rumblings that might happen today, though if not, we anticipate it will be soon. In the meantime, more leaked photos and press renders are finding their way to the web. To quickly recap, the rumored GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is said to be based on a version of NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture, but without real-time ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support. Recent pictures of a naked GeForce GTX 1660 Ti showed a GPU die that is physically smaller than RTX silicon, which leads us to believe it will lack... Read more...
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti news has been coming in at a furious pace over the past few weeks.
