We’ve seen custom-cooled offerings of AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 graphics cards from ASUS and XFX. Recently, MSI released images of its new EVOKE RX 5700 XT to several online tech pages, giving the world a glimpse of the card’s design.
To be specific, the images that were released didn’t come with any specifications, but to be fair, neither did the other RX 5700 XT with 3rd party coolers thus far. However, as with all custom-cooled graphics card, we’re certain the EVOKE RX 5700 XT will ship out with beefier clockspeeds than the reference version of the RX 5700 XT.
What we can deduce from the images is that the EVOKE’s design, though, is that MSI seems to have taken a page out of its gaming notebook department. In on picture, you get a glimpse of output ports and cooler shroud’s side profile. The polygonal cutouts in that image are reminiscent of the side grilles that we see on the GS65 Stealth and GS75 Stealth gaming notebooks.
Speaking of ports, the EVOKE RX 5700 XT will have three DisplayPort and one HDMI port. As for power, it’s likely that the card will have an 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power ports.
It also looks like MSI’s version of AMD’s RDNA-powered graphics card will sport a typical two-fan configuration, though it’s unlikely the fans on the card will be anything but typical. The fans will reportedly be similar to 90mm TorX spinners, while the heatsinks will be similar to MSI’s Twin Frozr VII.
MSI’s EVOKE RX5700 XT is expected to launch on 15 August 2019.
