Product on Review: MSI MEG X570 UNIFY
Street Price: GBP £294.49 / USD $299.99
AMD’s 3rd Generation Ryzen has made quite the splash within the industry, with the X570 chipset also benefitting from its popularity. MSI have been no stranger to that, introducing a model for every price point, including those who want to spend £700. However, today we look at something very familiar, but also different. The MSI MEG X570 UNIFY.
So, what’s different about the UNIFY? Well, despite the very similar feature-set and appearance to the MSI MEG X570 ACE, the UNIFY has been stripped of all RGB LEDs, being squarely aimed at those who have grown tired of the craze that’s swept across the components market, it also lands at a more budget-friendly price, which you’d expect.
While the RGB might’ve been removed, it still packs one hell of a punch; we get three M.2 slots, each equipped with a Shield Frozr heatsink, three x16 slots and a pair of x1 slots to round out PCI-E 4.0 connectivity. There’s also 2.5G ethernet, 4600MHz memory support, USB 3.2 Gen. 2, WiFi 6 and Audio Boost HD.
All in, the MSI MEG X570 UNIFY seems to offer the vast majority of its ACE brother, but at a decent price reduction. If you don’t care for RGB and want something stealthy, the UNIFY sounds like a win-win. Let’s chuck it on the testbench and see what it’s made of.
