    We check out the Gaming X revision of MSI's Radeon RX 5700. The little brother of the XT comes with that updated look and low noise levels. Fabricated at a 7nm node and capable of battling with NVIDI...

    At $399, it would compete with reference XT. Quite a dilemma for buyers.

    This is the first non-XT review I've seen of MSI's Gaming X, and just like the XT version, it performs all around as the best in the cooling & noise department; but ofc at a $50 price premium (for both models). ...For that extra $50, you might as well get an XT card such as the $409 Sapphire Pulse which has extremely competitive cooling performance both for the GFX chip and the DDR6 VRAM at an astonishingly low price.

    The XT AIB cards have come down a bit in the UK but the 5700 standard AIB not really, so agree with the comments above. One AIB card with twin fan setup is only £10 more than the reference XT card. Rather odd.

    At first I was going to say "wtf is up with the excessive heatsink" until I saw the temperature and noise level. I still think it's overkill, and I personally would not be fond of a 3-slot mid-range GPU, but, it proved it's effectiveness.
