MSI announces a new gaming brand for its AMD Radeon graphics cards

Following ASUS’ example, MSI has announced a new gaming brand series based on AMD’s “Polaris” chipsets, the Radeon graphics-based MECH series. Equipped with the new thermal design, the Radeon RX MECH series doesn’t just allow for higher core and memory speeds but also provide increased performance in games.

As MSI stated, the MECH series coolers are intensified by a fiery red glow piercing through the cover, while the MSI dragon RGB LED on the top can be set to any of 16.7 million colors to match your build. Furthermore, a completely custom PCB design featuring enhanced power design with Military Class 4 components promises to enable higher stable performance to push your graphics card to the max.

Scott Herkelman, vice president and general manager, AMD Radeon Technologies Group, said:

“AMD Radeon has always been committed to the best interest of gamers: a dedication to open innovation such as our contributions to the DirectX and Vulkan APIs, a commitment to true transparency through industry standards like Radeon FreeSync technology, and a desire to expand the PC gaming ecosystem by enabling developers everywhere. It is these values that result in a thriving PC gaming community, and explain why so many gamers continue to rally behind the AMD Radeon brand.”

These new AMD GPUs will come with the TORX Fan 2.0; an enhanced version of the patented MSI TORX Fan technology which generates 22% more air pressure for better cooling performance while further reducing noise levels. Moreover, these cards will come bundled with the MSI Gaming App.
