In this benchmark and review of the MSI RX 5700 XT Evoke OC, we’re looking primarily at thermals, noise, noise-normalized thermals, and gaming performance versus the stock RX 5700 XT Reference and Sapphire RX 5700 XT Pulse. The MSI Evoke OC uses a champagne/gold-colored shroud with a dual-fan design, but also pre-boosts the clock higher than stock clocks are configured. MSI’s Evoke OC should be priced a bit higher than the Pulse, likely at $430 to the $410 of the Pulse (and $400 of the RX 5700 XT Reference), but we’ll see where pricing falls once it’s all listed.
