TORX 2.0 FAN

TEAMWORK FOR GREATER STRENGTH

Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool.

TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.

fan

DISPERSION FAN BLADE

has a steeper curved blade which accelerates the airflow, increasing its effectiveness.

TRADITIONAL FAN BLADE

pushes down a steady airflow to the massive heatsink below.

ZERO FROZR-STAY UNDETECTED

First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZeroFrozr technology has made its mark and is now the industry standard among graphics cards. It eliminates fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations. This means you can focus on gaming without the noise of spinning fans.

CATCH THE VIBE WITH COOL LED EFFECTS

Each LED can be controlled individually by choosing any of the animation effects availiable in the MSI Gaming App, ranging from responding to your game sounds or music to steady light, breathing and flashing. Of course, you can also turn them off.

HEATSINK

Lurking under the cover of the GAMING graphics card is an engineering masterpiece designed to keep the graphics card cool. Every tiny detail of the intricate heatsink plays an essential part in providing a cool & quiet gaming experience.

AIRFLOW CONTROL TECHNOLOGY

Using advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the TWIN FROZR VI heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, which means lower temperatures and better gaming.

SMOOTH HEAT PIPES

Up to 8mm thick copper heat pipes with a smooth squared shape at the bottom maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.

SOLID BASEPLATE

To temper the heat generated by a powerful GPU, MSI GAMING series graphics cards use a solid nickel-plated copper base plate. The base plate catches the heat from the GPU and transfers it to the heat pipes for dissipation so you can keep cool.

PREMIUM THERMAL COMPOUND

Every detail counts when it comes to creating the ultimate thermal design, which is why TWIN FROZ VI uses a premium thermal compound to mae sure it outlives the competition.

BACKPLATE

A powerful graphics card needs a strong build to harness its performance. MSI GAMING X graphics cards are fitted with a solid metal back plate to make it extra tough. The matte black finish completes the TWIN FROZR VI design to perfection.

MULTI GPU

Gaming enthusiasts are always looking for more performance to get the ultimate experience. Using multiple graphics cards in SLI or Crossfire is a great way to find out just how good it gets. MSI GAMING graphics cards fully support multi GPU technologies.

* Possibilities may vary depending on what is supported per model.

THE FUTURE OF GAMING

RADEON

Ultra-high resolution (UHD) delivers 4x the resolution of 1080p content, enabling much sharper and crisper images with delicate details during gaming.

powerful card , bad software

Pros: powerful card.
nice fans and back plate.
one 8 pin power connector.
quiet.
plays all current titles at at least HIGH (for me).
Free DOOM game (at time of purchase).

Cons: Ok....WATTMAN is horrible.
Computer BSOD's 2-3 times before it settles down and I can use it.
Then , after it boots and seems normal , I'll constantly get pop-ups from Radeon saying Wattman has switched to default settings after a system failure (which is funny because I run this card at stock settings).
I even reinstalled Windows 10 , and everything was fine. As SOON as I installed the drivers for this card , BOOM! Same thing happened again. BSOD's and Radeon yelling at me about system failure.
I'm ditching this and (hate to say it) going to Nvidia for awhile.
Wattman pretty well makes AMD cards almost useless.
The above mentioned happens on EVERY boot , even after a fresh install of Windows 10.

Other Thoughts: Was a Nice upgrade from my GTX 970.
Powers through GTA 5 maxed out.

This card was working great with my AM4 setup and 8 core CPU , with 16GB of RAM.
1.5 years later , Wattman ruined it. (I've edited this initial review as of 12/21/18)

Great Card

Pros: -Looks Amazing
-Has allowed me to max out pretty much every game i play on Ultra to High settings in 1080p
-Runs cool and you can basically never hear it even when it is under load
-MSi and AMD software make it easy to update and customize

Cons: I have had non stop problems with it saying there is no display signal and I'm starting to think the HDMI ports are going out and also some weird problems with the screen going green or gray scale.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this card but with these problems happening I wonder how much longer I will be able to use this card for with these issues. Other than that amazing card I could say I would buy again.

Fantastic GPU!

Pros: Fairly Priced, Easy to install, Solidly Built, Quality On Screen Graphics! 8 GiGs of VR, Can set up to over Clock, Can set our own fan curves, Has Display ports and HDMI Ports. Supports PCI Express 3.0 X 16 and Direct X. Has 3 different Clocking Modes. OC Mode, Gaming Mode and Silent Mode and the fan is extremely quiet.

Cons: Fan in the GPU never seemed to run when the computer started, I had to install MSI Afterburner and set the MSI Afterburner prefs to launch MSI Afterburner when system starts other wise the fans never ran, not sure why. Other then that it's AWESOME!

Other Thoughts: I understand this isn't the very best GPU currently on the market, there are different brands and MSI now has better GPU's but I highly recommend the MSI Products if your in need of a great GPU. I bought this over a year ago, use it everyday and have had no major issues with this. I have been a gamer for almost 20 years and always used MSI Radeon Graphics cards and never had a issue that caused failure of their products, they have always become outdated prior to failing. And I would also suggest downloading and installing the MSI Afterburner application which will allow you to Tweek the GPU Processor for over clocking and create custom fan curves to your needs. This GPU provides beautiful sharp graphics to my monitor, I am extremely happy with the MSI Products.

Great Card

Pros: Purchased card for child’s gaming machine. It is an AMD FX 8350, 4 Ghz, 8-core, system with 16 GB of DDR3-1866 RAM and SATA-3 SSD boot drive. It replaced a Gigabyte 6870 OC card. It will play all their game’s at 1080p, on epic settings, with 60 FPS or better. Great build quality and cooler from MSI. Card is extremely quiet. Great price (Retail price) to performance for this video card.

I like it so-much I purchased a second one for my system. E5-1650, 3.6 GHZ, 6-core, system with 32 GB of DDR4-2400 Registered ECC RAM and a NVME SSD boot drive. I use it for its' compute power in Hydraulic Model testing and playing Minecraft with the kids.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: When considering a new card, I really wanted the 8GB version. Today that is not really necessary (late 2016), but I do not plan to buy a new card every other year. The Radeon 6870 (5-years old) was not doing the job, not because it was too slow, but mostly because of the 1GB (good in 2011) of ram was not enough. The 6870 would run Ark Survival Evolved (2016 version) at 50 FPS on high setting using approximately 800MB of VRAM and 95% Load. In Minecraft FTB we get 20 FPS running any setting using all the VRAM and the card is idling at 30% load. It was all about the RAM.

You can never have too much RAM.

It's the AMD one

Pros: It works really well along with my FX-8350 in MSI FXA990 gaming mobo, I think I have the best, stable bang for the buck gaming rig.

Cons: It gets really HOT playing anything in High stats had to turn it down. Maybe getting a 2nd one would do the trick? hmmm... I tried that didn't do much switched, and won't go back to AMD

Other Thoughts: I like the led lights, make it bling! =)

Best Budget Card/Price-to-Performance GPU

Pros: Great performance with the price, even at 1440P
LED effects are nice and simple to change
Good overclocker
MSI has great, quiet cooling as always

Cons: Only cons aren't really the card itself, but in very, very few cases some games have not been optimized well on the RX series in general. Sometimes its been at the fault of AMD, but in one of the latest cases, NieR Automata, the game devs have left users of the card and the other RX 400 cards in the dust. Like I said, it's been very few cases, and I run most of my games just fine with this beast.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this GPU for over a year now and it's been great, soon I'll be getting another one of these and going crossfire. I'd easily buy this again, and I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking to buy a budget card for gaming since it's now cheaper and sometimes gets bundled with a free $60 game.

Awesome card for the price, worth the money.

Pros: Fast and handles games easily, the 8Gbs helps run any game at High quality, I use it for Rainbow Six Siege.

Cons: It runs hot for me, I went into BIOS and changed my fans to run at 80% and I also have 5 case fans to move air and also near an ac floor vent for it to pull in cool air.
