MSI Radeon RX 5700 XT Evoke OC Edition tested – butter or margarine on bread? | English Review

The MSI RX 5700 Evoke OC Edition was deliberately placed by MSI below the Gaming and Gaming X models in order to be able to operate significantly cheaper on the market. In and of itself, such an endeavour is also very praiseworthy, whereby of course it always depends on where the manufacturer has set the red pen and has to save in order to really hit the price point customer-effectively. That's exactly what we want to test and question today.

I deliberately chose all three common screen resolutions for all benchmarks and rather adapted the settings to the usability. So this is not more about "living better", but about "playing faster". I am sure that the benefit is rather given and I never understood why some people only want to see Full HD as a resolution for the absolute beginner cards and Ultra-HD only for the real high-end hardware. Otherwise all graphics are self-explanatory anyway and I spare myself the novels of the verbal paraphrase of what you can already see with your eyes.

Since we don't want or have to test CPUs, I deliberately chose the highest settings for these benchmarks, as all cards deliver very usable frame rates. But the advantage of the board partner card over the reference card is really marginal, because it's barely more than two percent. Here we will probably have to look for the advantages somewhere else later on.
