MSI presents a brand-new series based on AMD's “Polaris” chipsets, the MSI Radeon RX 500 MECH 2 Series graphics cards. The new MSI Radeon RX MECH features a new thermal design that’s optimized for higher core clocks and memory speeds to deliver increased performance in gaming. The MSI MECH series cooler is intensified by an eye-catching fiery red glow piercing through the cover, while the MSI dragon RGB LED on the top supports MSI Mystic Light with 16.7 million colours options to match your gaming rig’s colour scheme and design.
The MSI Radeon RX MECH 2 cards use a completely custom PCB design featuring enhanced power design with Military Class 4 components enables higher stable performance to push your graphics card to the max. A classy matte black metal backplate shows the MECH 2 cards more structural strength and provides a nice finishing touch. MSI doesn’t reveal if the MECH 2 series is a result of the GeForce Partnership Program, possibly forcing MSI to create a new series to house it's Radeon RX 500 Series graphics cards.
MSI MECH Series Thermal Design
MSI's award-winning TORX Fan 2.0 is the enhanced version of the patented MSI TORX Fan technology which generates 22% more air pressure for better cooling performance while further reducing noise levels. Connected to the huge heatsink are 6mm thick copper heat pipes with a squared shape at the bottom for optimal heat transfer from the solid nickel-plated copper baseplate combined with Premium Thermal Compound X to keep the Polaris powerhouse cool.
Exclusive Airflow Control Technology
With advanced aerodynamics, the Airflow Control Technology leads more air directly onto the heat pipes of MECH series design. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, which means lower temperatures and better gaming. Furthermore, MECH series utilizes SuperSU heatpipe design which is the best cooling solution for graphics cards. The GPU is cooled by a massive nickel-plated copper base plate connected to 6mm heat pipes. Additionally, the heat pipe layout increases efficiency by reducing the length of unused heat pipe and a special SU-form design.
MSI Radeon RX 580/570 MECH 2 models will be available worldwide around the end of July 2017. No information on pricing as of this writing.
