MSI Releases their First RX 590 Graphics Cards

When AMD launched their RX 590 graphics card, MSI was notably absent from their latest lineup of Radeon graphics hardware. Now, several months post-launch, MSI has released their first RX 590 series graphics card, utilising the company's Armor branding and the same PCB and cooler designs as the company's RX 580 Armor. 

This graphics card is powered using a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, just like most other RX 590 graphics cards and ships with both overclocked and reference speed variants, though both models offer end users the same PCB and cooler designs. AMD's RX 590 GDDR5 memory specifications also remain unchanged, giving this model little to differentiate itself from its peers.    

At this time MSI has not revealed the pricing of their RX 590 graphics card, though it is expected to ship with similar pricing to existing RX 590 graphics card models. Below are the specifications of MSI's RX 590 series graphics cards, as well as AMD's reference specifications for comparison purposes.
