MSI has been relatively silent about its upcoming AMD Radeon RX 7900 Series, but the company is planning to unveil its first custom Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards in Q1 2023, according to new information shared by Andreas Schilling, an editor at, who also revealed that MSI has no plans to release models based on AMD’s reference design.

“Reports MSI will not have any Radeon RX 7900 XT(X) cards are not true,” Schilling mentioned in a tweet dated today, December 16, before going on to say that MSI has no plans for reference models.

“MSI is skipping MBA (Made by AMD) designs and will present custom designs in Q1 2023.”

Schilling’s tweet comes a couple of days after the MSI Gaming account promised that the company’s Radeon RX 7900 Series graphics cards would be “available soon.”

MSI currently offers an extensive lineup of Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards, with over 40 models in total, according to official website listings, including the Radeon RX 6950 XT GAMING X TRIO 16G and Radeon RX 6750 XT MECH 2X 12.

“Stay stealthy with Airflow Control that improves airflow dynamics,” reads a description regarding the former’s silencing heatsink design. “Deflectors provide additional surface area and guide air to where it’s needed for maximum cooling. Wave-curved 2.0 fin edges disrupt unwanted airflow harmonics resulting in reduced noise.”

MSI unveiled its first custom NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards on September 21, 2022, including SUPRIM LIQUID, GAMING TRIO, and VENTUS models.
