Radeon RX 570 ARMOR OC 8192MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
The MSI Radeon RX 570 Armor 8G OC with a semi-passive TORX cooler achieves a base clock of 1268 MHz, which can be increased up to 1293 MHz by boost. The 8GB GDDR5 video memory is clocked at 3500 MHz (7000 MHz) and is connected to the GPU (graphics chip) with a 256-bit memory interface. An 8-pin power connector provides the 24.6 cm long graphics card with the required power and a power supply with a power of 450 watts is recommended.
In order to achieve the full power of the graphics card, it is important that the electronics of the card remain as cool as possible, which is why MSI relies on the TORX cooler. The semi-passive Armor radiator design works with two large axial fans and provides a very good cooling performance for the graphics card.
The Radeon RX 570 is AMD's premium HD gaming graphics card from the RX-500 graphics card series and is particularly attractive in conjunction with a FreeSync monitor for price-conscious gamers. The Polaris 20 graphics chip of the RX 570 is a "refresh" of the Polaris 10 of the RX 470 and has the same number of shaders, 2.048 as its predecessor. However, the Radeon RX 570 has higher maximum boost clocks than its equivalent from the RX-400 series due to the optimization in the manufacturing process.
Based on AMD's fourth-generation GCN architecture and fabricated using the 14-nm FinFET LPP process, the Radeon RX 570 has a very low TDP of only 120 watts. This is possible, among other things, by large jumps in the control, current-saving and clock-pulse technology, Especially in direct comparison to the predecessor models such as the Radeon R9 390 with a significantly higher TDP of 250 watts.
The fourth-generation Graphics Core Next architecture (GCN 1.3) introduces features such as a command processor, a geometry processor, new multimedia cores, an optimized display engine, and an improved memory controller. Other supported technologies include Async Compute, Vulkan, DirectX 12 and AMD's FreeSync technology.
Monitors can be connected to the graphics card via DVI-D, display port or HDMI. The EyeFinity technology allows you to connect up to four screens in a multi-display setup. The HDMI port in standard 2.0b transmits 4K / UHD resolution at 60 hertz and has HDCP 2. 2 for transmitting and receiving encrypted signals.
