MSI RX 5600 XT Gaming X Review

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is an online action role-playing video game developed by Massive Entertainment and published by Ubisoft. The sequel to Tom Clancy’s The Division (2016), it is set in a near-future Washington, D.C. in the aftermath of a smallpox pandemic, and follows an agent of the Strategic Homeland Division as they try to rebuild the city. (Wikipedia).

We test using the Ultra preset, but with V-Sync disabled, DX11 API.


In the Division 2, we see more favourable results for the Gaming X – it would seem this game responds better to increased GPU speed as opposed to increased memory speed. At 1080p for instance, the Gaming X is just 4% slower than the Pulse with its new BIOS, while compared to the Pulse using the old BIOS, MSI’s card is 6% faster.

At 1440p, those margins of difference are exactly the same, so the Gaming X is still performing closer to the Pulse with its updated BIOS than it is to the Pulse using the old BIOS.
