Upcoming MSI RX 5500 XT MECH, GAMING Graphics Cards Leaked

Images of MSI's upcoming interpretations of AMD's Navi 14-based RX 5500 XT graphics cards have leaked, which place them in the company's GAMING and MECH series of graphics cards. MSI's RX 5500 XT MECH features a gunmetal gray and black color scheme, without any of the red bangs and whistles that are usually associated with gaming graphics cards. It's a more understated design, even though there is added detail to the cooler shroud. The GAMING series, like usually, ships with gray/black and red accents, and has a more subdued shroud material design.

Based on AMD's Navi 14, the MSI MECH and GAMING RX 5500 XT will feature 1408 stream processors. In the case of the GAMING graphics card, AMD reference clocks of 1845 MHz will see an increase to 1905 MHz, with GDDR6 memory clocks untouched at 14 Gbps. MSI will be readying 4 GB VRAM SKUs in time as well, though you should expect only 8 GB models to be available come launch day. Both cards feature the usual I/O connectors of at 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI.

That was on the 5700 XT EVOKE.. Not sure if the MECHs had the same issue.

So, it´s official that the RX 5500XT is just an overclocked RX 5500?

Yes, on the Gaming X the memory is on the same plate as the core, its actually a really good cooler.
The plate is a rather small one, but you'll see why its like that when reviews go up

Gaming x series is actually one of the best around. Altough I prefer Red Dragon from Powercolor as best navi card this year. The one you are referring to is evoke from msi. And they tried to fix it with evoke gp versions still not satisfying result with that as well.

I still think their Nvidia Gaming X cooler looks way better than their Navi ones.

Yes, the 5500 is decidedly "meh", but advertising it as such seems counterproductive

So the Mech version is the next step from the Armor version?
Wasn't the Armor version one of the worst cooling ones?!
