Following on from AMD’s RX 6700 XT announcement stream last night, MSI revealed its line-up of custom-cooled solutions. Besides an AMD Reference design model, MSI will also be releasing Mech and Gaming series Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards.
Featuring the company’s Twin Frozr 8 thermal cooling solution, the dual-fan cooler of the MSI Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming X uses the Torx Fan 4.0 design, connecting the centre of the fan to an outer ring through the fan blades, resulting in increased airflow. Additionally, the Gaming X cooling system also includes a metal backplate for additional passive cooling and protection, thermal pads for additional heat dissipation, and a Zero Frozr mode to stop fans when temperatures are low.
The Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming X cards also feature MSI’s RGB Mystic Light lighting, which users can synchronise with other Mystic Light-compatible devices.
MSI Mech series cards also feature a dual-fan cooler, but instead of using Torx Fan 4.0 design, it employs the older Torx Fan 3.0. Similar to the Gaming X cards, the Mech series also features a metal backplate, thermal pads for extra heat dissipation, and Zero Frozr mode to prevent the fans from spinning at low loads.
Base and boost clocks, memory clock, and TGP of the Gaming X and Mech cards have not been disclosed yet. Both cards are powered by 2x 8-pin PCIe power connectors and MSI recommends the use of a 650W PSU. Available video outputs include 3x DisplayPorts 1.4 and an HDMI 2.1 port.
Custom MSI Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards will launch in mid-March 2021. Discuss on our Facebook page, HERE.
