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

With our tests, I can now finally use the new laboratory, which makes many things easier and better for me. But we will write a walkthrough article in due time. By the way, I would like to point out already at the beginning that I was (and am) in connection with MSI in the course of the tests concerning a modified BIOS with lower fan speeds. But more about that later in the article

In order to make the whole thing a little clearer and to get to the point a little bit more, I have kept the structure of the articles to a large extent, but now I rely more on tables with clear representation of the result values and specifications, which later also guarantee a better comparison of the cards among themselves.

 

 

Technical data and picture gallery

This time the design is visually very MSI-untypical, but that’s why we have the picture gallery:

GPU-Z provides us with an initial overview of the other technical data:

The table gives a nice overview of the remaining technical data of the current and older comparison models:

Test system and measurement methods

The test system and methodology are well known, but since I now test independently here in Germany, the test system has also been upgraded again without having to consider the former US colleagues.
