I've been through a bunch of different custom Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics cards now, with one of my favorites and best-performing custom Navi cards being MSI's own Radeon RX 5700 XT GAMING X. Now it's time to re view its sibling, the MSI Radeon RX 5700 GAMING X - a slightly cut down, but equally kick ass custom Navi card.


MSI hasn't changed much in terms of the cooling tech between the flagship RX 5700 XT GAMING X and the RX 5700 GAMING X, with the same great TWIN FROZR 7 cooler used on the new RX 5700 GAMING X. This means we have ZERO FROZR tech at play here for silent use when the card isn't under gaming loads, and it looks awesome, too.

The same backplate is on MSI's custom RX 5700 GAMING X and it looks mean inside of a gaming PC, with the Mystic Light RGB lighting making your gaming rig stand out from a crowd. Performance wise, you're going to find some great FPS in 1080p and 1440p games, and even no issues playing popular games like Apex Legends and Overwatch on a 21:9 monitor at 3440x1440 on the MSI RX 5700 GAMING X.

Detailed Specs

It wouldn't be a GAMING X card without some custom overclocking, with MSI pumping up the Navi 10 XL GPU inside of the RX 5700 GAMING X up to 1750MHz boost, up top 1725MHz game clocks, and 1610MHz base clocks. the 8GB of GDDR6 sits at its stock 14Gbps frequency.

MSI's custom RX 5700 GAMING X measures in at 297 x 58 x 140mm, so be sure to measure your system before you throw it in. If your mITX (or similar) gaming rig can handle it, the custom RX 5700 GAMING X is going to give your mini gaming PC some potent performance.

MSI has its new Radeon RX 5700 GAMING X priced at $399... making it a little more expensive than the reference RX 5700 from AMD. You are getting a much cooler, and better looking RX 5700 for the additional money on the custom RX 5700 GAMING X.
