Ahead of its launch, TechPowerUp scored an exclusive picture of MSI's premium custom-design Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card, the RX 5700 XT EVOKE. The EVOKE is a completely new card design and brand-extension making its debut with the RX 5700-series. MSI drew some visual cues from the NVIDIA TITAN RTX, as the card features a solid metal cooler shroud holding a pair of 90 mm fans, with a champagne gold finish and diamond-cut edges. The shroud binds seamlessly with the matching metal back-plate. Underneath it, MSI appears to be using a similar aluminium fin-stack heatsink to its Twin Frozr VII cooling solution, which uses four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes t, and a single fin-stack that spans the entire length of the card.

It's not just the heatsink, even the two fans are similar 90 mm TorX spinners. The card offers idle fan-stop, a must-have especially for this GPU. Interestingly, underneath this custom cooling solution, our sources tell us that MSI is using AMD's reference-design PCB for the RX 5700-series, which draws power from a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors. In terms of monitor connectivity, the card has three DisplayPort outputs and one HDMI port. It remains to be seen what factory-overclocked speeds MSI offers for these cards. The card should hit the shelves on August 15, our review sample is already on its way.

Update: MSI distributed one image each to several websites. In addition to ours, we collected four more so far (IgorsLab, Guru3D, TweakTown, WCCFTech).

Update Aug 15th: Our review of the MSI Radeon RX 5700 XT Evoke is live now.

looks like AIB partners are giving NAVI same love as x570 boards :).
P.S: AMD played it smart with the new Boost/Game Clocks and now AIB partners will use the Max Boost clocks as an advantage over Nvidia clocks, For example they can Advertise 5700XT with "world first" over 2.1Ghz boost clock while the Nvidia cards only advertised ~1600~1700Mhz Boost clocks even though that in reality most of them boost near 2Ghz.

It's more or a champagne gold color, not tuf colors. It also appears to be a sand blasted texture.. Either way it's a sexy looking card.

Yeah, they departed from the beige color slots to digital grey. The older color scheme would look rather good with this one.

I know, I am just talking about marketing, "2.1Ghz" looks good for that.

5700XT is 9%/12%/14% behind 2070Super (which is 25% more expensive) at 1080p/1440p/4k, how much is "well below" for 2.1 OCed XT?

Besides most manfuacturers, but ASUS leaking pricing that is basically the same as ref.

AMD could also use N7P and close the gap between 5700XT vs 2070Super if they have too, no 1 knows if they started to use it and what they are currently doing with the N7+ that's is already in mass production stage.

Now we're talking... but teasing these long after ref launch... makes even this new shroud already feel like old news.

AMD, please learn from this, for once...

I reeeeeally like the shroud, less so buying an MSI product.

And I thought of Sapphire also LOL... :roll:

Honestly, if you have to cherry pick results to get a favorable light for your card, it's just a bit pathetic.

Here's another news site showing a 9-10% advantage for the 5700 XT, not the 26% that chart has. https://www.anandtech.com/show/14663/the-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2080-super-review/12

Now, are we really going to assume that the 5700 XT runs better in Techspot's lab? Or are they maybe just a bit incompetent? You're welcome to go hang out there, if you want.

With the same PCB, an 0 throttling on the reference card / cooler, we can't expect performance to change in any significant way

So, at 1440p ...

The Reference 5700 XT is 2% faster Z(100 % vs 98%) than the reference 2070 (not super) at 1080p "outta the box"

It overclocks (118.1 / 111.8) to 1.0565 w/ no sign of temperature throttling.

The performance ranking of the 5700 XT is therefore 100% x 105.65 = 105.65

The AIB 2070 "not Super" overclocks (144.5 / 128.3) = 1.1263

The performance ranking of the 5700 XT is therefore 98% x 1.1263 = 110.38

The 2070 is 4.48% faster than the 5700 XT.

So how much will the AIB treatment on the 5700 XT add in cost being that there are no PCB changes ? What will this have to sell for to make it attractive with AIB 2070s selling for $430 - $450.

-The reference 5700 XT is about 9 dbA louder than reference 2070. Assuming MSI does as well with the XT, I expect this to remain the same w/ both improving by about 4 dbA.
-The reference 5700 XT is at 92C under load, that's 16C hotter than reference 2070. Again, assuming MSI does as well with the XT, I expect this to remain the same w/ both improving by about 7C
-The reference 5700 XT is at 227 watts under peak gaming about 24 watts higher then reference 2070. With the same PCB, not sure that the AIB will change inn this respect.

-The performance advantage of just under 5 %, to my eyes, the MSI 5700 XT Evoke has to be $20 cheaper.
-The 92C thing, even reduced by the better cooler to 85C is still way above 69C. Unless they do better, then no I'm not going there but from a market perspective, that's worth at least $10.
- The twice as loud thing, again MSI will have to beat expectations here to make the card attractive. That's a deal killer for me, unless they can drop to around 30 dbA. Even for the headset crows, gotta take off another $10.

All in all, considering the 2070s edge in performance, temps and noise, I think the MSI 5700 XT Evoke has to sell for $40 less than the MSI Gaming Cards unless MSI manages to do far better on the noise and temps than I think we can reasonable expect until it lands on the TPU test bench.
