Detailed Look

MSI's iconic TWIN FROZR 7 is no strnager to PC gamers, with the mid-range Radeon RX 5600 XT GAMING X getting the TWIN FROZR 7 cooling tech treatment -- and as usual, it looks -- and performs beautifully.

The visual style of the card looks great for a mid-range offering at $329, with a slick red trim around the fans -- the fan on the left gets more of the trim, while on the right it is finished off. I love this look, and it looks great with some RGB lighting reflecting off of it inside of a gaming rig.

MSI has always had great-looking backplates and the Radeon RX 5600 XT GAMING X is no different -- the brushed aluminum style with design aesthetics that pop, is a great addition to a 'mid-range' $329 graphics card.

You will have the usual 3 x DisplayPort + 1 x HDMI 2.0 output on the MSI Radeon RX 5600 XT GAMING X.

Strangely, you'll need dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors on the card -- and by strange, I mean really strange as the SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 5600 XT PULSE OC requires just a single 8-pin PCIe power connector in comparison and has virtually identical performance to the MSI variant.

From the bottom of the card you can see MSI's super-thick heat sink work, making it a 2.5-slot graphics card.

Once again from the top, with the MSI Gaming RGB lighting/logo at the front of the card.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
