As the world’s most popular GAMING graphics card vendor, MSI is proud to introduce its full line up of graphics cards based on the new AMD Radeon™ RX 5500 XT series with remarkable performance.

As the leader of cooling among all graphics cards, we know that the most challenging part of producing a graphics card is perfectly balancing both heat and noise when cooling a high-performance GPU.

No premium graphics card is complete without a backplate – after all, for most people it’s the first thing you see when peering into your case. Bolstering the GAMING series with durable and premium materials, the metal backplate not only provides aesthetical value but also strengthens the structure of the graphics card to prevent the PCB from bending and provides protection. Besides toughening the card, the backplate also helps to passively cool the card. Using thermal pads to transfer the heat and holes to increase airflow and dissipation.

Empowering MSI Mystic Light, RGB allows for more dynamic lighting that captivates gamers and onlookers. You can easily customize and control the RGB lights by using the exclusive Dragon Center software. Using Mystic Light, you can synchronize the RGB lighting of your MSI GAMING graphics card with other third-party products.
