Review of this card on Gamers Nexus: https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwrev...hire-pulse... and their follow-up on the enhancements MSI made to cooling (not sure if this applies to the model Newegg is selling or not) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yE_i9wn7hgk -- either way you can RMA the "old" style cooler setup and get it upgraded.

The 5700 non-XT flavor of the MSI EVOC is $339, -$15 instant discount to $324, with a $30 rebate it's $294 plus tax shipped free, with the same freebies.

For $65 less I'd take the plain jane 5700 all day long, for around 20% less money you only lose 5-10% performance. The realistic impact on average FPS from the 5700 to 5700xt is pretty small, and you always have the option to OC or softmod the 5700 up to XT performance.

The EVOC and MECH cards from MSI are generally pretty loud compared to their more expensive GamerX line, so if you care about acoustics and/or have a hotter case ambient temp when playing games this may not be the card for you. They are both much better than the reference blower cooler option.

If you want a good performance bang for the buck, the MSI EVOC 5700 for $294 is a strong play compared to the $300 Geforce 2060, though driver stability/issue differences between the two platforms is worth exploring.

So, this card did get updated with proper thermal pads (see YouTube reviews on the Evoke updates and teardowns), I just wonder if Newegg has all new stock. I might take the chance, this is a great deal for a 5700xt with all the bundle stuff. Also fits for most SFF builds, useful for me

Also includes 90 days of gamepass and monster hunter, plus resident evil 3. Why a thumbs down? $30 better than next best deal

Ah. Thermal pad is too small to properly cool the memory and will need replacement with better thermal padding if overclocking or heavy usage. Though there are reports that staying at stock speeds it stays within livable temps.

Thanks!

That helped me decide on the 5700 powercooler red dragon for about the same price as this. since I am making a sff build the size, thermals, and sound was a deciding factor for me

Same experience. With tweaked settings (medium) the 5700 runs BF5 1440P at 120 fps all day. Unless you need 4K there is little reason to pay the RTX tax.

An RX 5700 can run Battlefield 5 at 1440p Ultra quality at near 100fps, why would you play at medium?

Is this hands down better than gtx 1080? Or is it just in benchmarks?

5700 Series have spotty drivers, and they downclock in games especially older ones at 1080p. I'd make sure you can return this before you try.

Just make sure it has a good CPU partner. Some VR is unforgiving in that department
