1080p 60FPS Gaming: All of the important games like Fortnite, PUBG and other popular games will have no worries running at 1080p 60FPS on a mix of medium/high detail. We were running Ultra details (without AA enabled) throughout our testing and hitting 60FPS without much of a problem at 1080p.
3440x1440 Gaming @ 30FPS Is Possible: UltraWide monitors are super-popular right now, with the new MSI Radeon RX 570/580 MECH 2 handling 3440x1440 at around 30FPS average in most of our testing. This isn't enough for competitive multiplayer, which is something you're not going to do on a 21:9 display in the first place, but 30FPS is fine for single player games like The Witcher 3.
Perfect For eSports Gaming: All of those big eSports games in CS:GO, Overwatch, League of Legends, and Rocket League will be super-smooth on the RX 570/580 MECH 2 graphics cards.
DX12/FreeSync 2 Support: Another big win for anyone upgrading from an older graphics card is that you'll receive FreeSync 2 support, as well as DX12. There are plenty of gamers who own older-gen hardware that won't have support for DX12, but with an upgrade to the new MSI Radeon RX 570/580 MECH 2 cards, you'll score yourself DX12 support.
Power Efficient: If you've got an older PC with a PSU that isn't quite able to handle a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or Radeon RX Vega 64, you'll be OK with the RX 570/580 MECH 2 cards. They each require a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, keeping the power consumption for an entire gaming rig at under 250-300W.
There's not much to criticize here, as we weren't expecting new performance numbers or something that beat the best from NVIDIA. This is a new line of cards (MECH 2) that will be sold alongside the GAMING X range from MSI. It's a refreshed package that offers gamers a great upgrade for the price ($300-$370 depending on the card/market).
|Performance (overclocking, power)||95%|
|Quality (build, design, cooling)||90%|
|General Features (display outputs, etc)||90%|
|Bundle, Packaging & Software||90%|
|Overall TweakTown Rating||91%|
The Bottom Line: MSI's new Radeon RX 570/580 MECH 2 are great iterations of their already strong RX 500 series line up, with impressive thermals and noise levels for those all-night gaming sessions. FreeSync monitor owners will want to check out the MECH 2 cards for sure.
