I came into some extra holiday money and I wanted more to the test mule system which is a mATX board being an MSI B350M Gaming Pro with Ryzen 3600 .. so I decide to try this MSI RX 5700 Mech out at $339 from BB as it caught my eyes to have only one 8 pin power connection,

It seems the card is the very same as my RX 580 which may be just a tic longer then the RX 5700 Mech as in the profile they used in design , it does not have a bios switch but as I said it like they drop a RX 5700 die and DRR6 memory on an existing Polaris design layout to me .

It was the same price as Newegg but it was same day in hand for PC addict's like me haha .. I like so far as that's a nice score without the 6 pin connector that my ref RX 5700 has with it's 8 pin also .

the 3600 was backed off from 4.2 all core overclock for it very first run , I will upload some in game video of it with temps to night as I don't know yet myself .


Here it is playing Devil May Cry 5

i'm trying to follow you but i'm not quite sure what this thread is about. Is it just a post on your system? Are you looking for any feedback? Are you just excited to share you hardware?

Did you actually flash the 5700xt bios to that card?

It is a newer type of card I am trying to show with just one 8 pin power connection which is the reason not to flash it .. I was going to make a video showing the card in hand for size as there are no reviews of this video card on YouTube ..

As for the system I was showing a B 350 board running that $105 wroth of 32Gb OLOy memory at 3600Mhz in CL 18 timings as that board has never seen that memory speed being a generation 1 board .
