[OCN Labs] MSI RX570 Gaming 4G by Duality92

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 


Product page



Hello the fine people of Overclock.net, today I have a wonderful GPU for you. I will be reviewing an MSI RX 570 Gaming 4G, provided by AMD for reviewing. Let's jump to it!


Packaging






The outside packaging, like all video cards now, is fully colored showing off as much assets as possible. We are immediately shown all the features, but how is it actually when used in real life? Are the things it says it is, actually true? Let's see smile.gif


Packaging content







First we are greeted with with a black box inside the box, this has the MSI Gaming logo on it. Inside that box, there's a good bunch of goodies, including user's guide, Lucky the MSI Dragon cartoon comic,
stickers, a CD with drivers, a card saying thanks for the MSI purchase and finally, the GPU itself.



Graphics card








The video card, the bold look of this card immediately catches your eye, it's big, bold and full of outputs. The red shroud with the Twin Frozr cooler stand out quite a bit. Output ports and the PCIE x16 tab all have covers prevent any damage or dust. We can also see this card is wider than the expansion slot, which means this is a wide card, take that into consideration when choosing it for a build. Although, in today's case market, it isn't much of an issue.


PCB








The black PCB consists of a 6 phase VRM design with Super Ferrite Chokes, 8 times 512MB Elpida DDR5 VRAM chips and the Polaris 10 GPU die with 2048 Stream processors (in 32 compute units), 128 texture units, 32 ROPS,
a base clock of 1168 MHz with boost up to 1244 MHz, 7 Gbps Memory Bandwith on a 256-bit bus. The GPU chip counts 5.7 billion transistors and has a TPD of 150W. The architecture of this chip is GCN 4.

With these stats, we can see how it's aimed at the 1080p market. Let's see how it performs.




Performance






I was able to overclock the card to 1400/1950 for all benchmarks, this translates to a 10% increase in clocks, but only a 3.6% increase in performance on average, ranging from 1% to 7.5%. Although the overclocking isn't the best I'Ve seen in terms of potential, the performance at 1080p is great!


Conclusion


If you're in the market for a new 1080p GPU, this card is definitely the card to go for, with AMDs new "Chill" driver feature, you even save tons of power using the card in some titles! I'd give it an easy 4.5 out of 5 star, reason being mining has drove some prices up a bit, making the decision tougher between competition GPUs.

So you could benchmark some games?

If the claim of "tons of power is saved" is being made, I'm curious as to where the power consumption readings are. I'll also second the request for actual game benchmarks, since many will be curious about real world performance.

Does the card run hot when overclocked?
With all those vrm cooling and quality chockes, seems like a card asking for a bit of overvolts even with stock cooling

With voltage and power limit, but maxed, at 70% fan, it sits at 65C about.

Wat

You buy a gaming graphics card then you don't benchmark it on any games?

And why have you compared it against a 1050ti?

Current prices in the UK (which are more expensive than USA)

1050ti £150
MSI 570 £270

Are you AMD biased or something? Why are you comparing an AMD card worth almost TWICE the price of the nvidia?

Compare it to the 1060 6GB which is £230





Suddenly it doesn't look so great does it?

First, I didn't buy anything.

Second, it's for comparison's sake.

Third, your benchmarks are set on custom presets, which does not reflect what we see here.

Fourth, game benchmarks will come.

why it wouldnt, if based by performance it is faster than 1050Ti and under normal pricing it is a much better choice

If the gaming benchmarks will come, might I ask why there is already a conclusion written and final score given for the item, with no mention of additional data to come? Such could give an impression to others that OCN doesn't believe in providing accurate data, or offering in depth reviews.
