Thermal instability in <1 year of use 9/2/2020 7:33:10 AM

Pros: - Overall performance met my expectations for a Vega 56 card.
- Sale price was good at the time for the performance gain.

Cons: - Thermal instability and failures in < 1 year. System faults with fans spinning up to 100%, requires hard reset to clear.
- AMD's 2020 Catalyst software is dreadful. Older versions or base drivers seem to be OK.

Overall Review: - I wouldn't recommend this particular card. I swapped it out with another brand of Vega 56 (so far so good).
- Due to the Catalyst software, can't strongly recommend AMD in general if you utilize the packaged tools for GPU tuning. I found the overall interface and configuration options to be frustrating.

Mine stop working after 1 year 8/23/2020 12:01:13 AM

Pros: This is an amazing card when it works. I ran most games at 2k 50-60 fps no problems. Last couple of weeks the card started to get really hot. Until it just stopped working.

Cons: My Vega56 8G stopped working after only 1 year of gaming.

Overall Review: My Vega56 8G Graphics card started to just run really hot maybe at the beginning of 8/1 until it completely stop working today 8/22. I bought the VGA on 7/6/2019. My GPU has a 3 years limited warranty. I hope MSI honors their warranty and get card repair. I will update with results. When I get GPU back.

Terrible graphics card. 8/21/2020 7:31:59 AM

Pros: None in my opinion.

Cons: Black screens every day.

Overall Review: Since I owned this card, on every game I play, even on low graphic settings, the computer crashes. Before the crash, the GPU would go on high fan speed, then the computer monitor turns black. This happens every day. Undervolting the card seems to keep the graphics card from black screening often, but it still happens.

This graphics card is a lost cause.

Continued problems and not great customer service 7/10/2020 11:15:27 AM

Overall Review: GPU dies randomly. Already returned to MSI and the returned GPU from MSI did the same thing. Tried this GPU in another machine and it had the same exact issues. Motherboard and monitor also from MSI and customer service told me that they didn't care if I had other MSI components. Going to call back into MSI and see what they will do but, I'm not hopeful.

100% Fan speed works fine 5/29/2020 7:14:05 AM

Pros: works fine with stable games and high processing mode with 100% fan speed Enabled and the HBMC shader backup cache @ 12 GB space as well....and as of yet no crashes outside of non release worthy games that can easily pass off as bad game coding and memory leaks. I have had no problems with it yet and I left the toggle jumper on the card set to factory default and also forget what it does anyways.

Cons: Air Boost tech on the fan and cooling apparatus is superb but can be mini jet engine Dbs but i wear headset and mic most of the time anyways and you should always runs your fans at max speed always...fans are cheap and easy to replace however, chipsets and memory dims are not :) I'm not really sure but theres very little knowledge on the toggle switch or what this jumper needs to do for anything if its an OC mechanism then I dont really care for it anyhow.

Overall Review: This graphics card did everything that I both expected it to and got what I wanted from it so far so good since Ive received it. Just give it plenty of cooling power and a little extra memory pool and the card should work just fine.

Worked Great until it didn't 4/2/2020 3:27:27 PM

Pros: - Great price for performance

Cons: - Faulty Card

Overall Review: - Bought this for my first build and it worked great for the first 3 months. It started having driver problems which resulted in BSOD, Black screens, and general freezes. Problems came while under heavy load and occasionally while browsing. Tried everything from clean windows install, clean driver install with DDU, driver roll back, upgrading to 850w gold psu, etc. Nothing worked and driver crashes persist. Searching various amd and reddit forums showed many people with the same problems could not find a solution and put in a rma or switched cards. Those that put it a rma would normally receive no refund or replacement as the factory testing would show no problems. I will be trying a 2060 as a replacement.

2 cards 1 bad time 3/27/2020 9:34:13 AM

Pros: None

Cons: Pushes the CPU
Crashes

Overall Review: The first card we got crashed all the time under any gaming load of apx 20-30 minutes. I switched the card into my other computer and it pushed the CPU so hard it wasn't usable and it crashed there anyway. We RMA'd it and paid to ship it out to get looked at. MSI sent a different card back and this 2nd card works better but crashes under apx 1 - 1.5 hours of any gaming load. So I switched this 2nd card into my other computer and it pushed the CPU harder than the GTX1070 but is usable. Still crashes under gaming load there too. So now I just have a card that is a pain to use, that I don't want, and I don't have the budget to even ship it out for another RMA much less get a replacement. I'd stay away from anything to do with this card, get a Nvidia instead.
