MSI will soon debut new graphics cards based on the AMD Radeon RX 570 and RX 580 in the Armor lineup. Videocardz managed to source some pictures of the new cards and they seem to have gotten some design facelift. They are essentially revisions of the earlier Armor cards but do sport some new features.
Unlike the previous Armor series cards, which had black and white shades, both the RX 570 Armor MK2 and the RX 580 Armor MK2 come with a black and red shroud housing two large cooling fans. They also come with a full cover backplate in the same color combination. Apart from the change in color, the cards also have a change of PCB design and a different heatpipe configuration.
Technical details are uncertain at this point but a look at the packaging reveals that the RX 570 version comes with 8 GB GDDR5 VRAM and is VR capable. These cards will be available in both overclocked and non-overclocked versions.
Pricing info is also unknown at this point. The Polaris-based cards have a high probability of being gobbled up by miners so expect prices to be significantly higher than the MSRP.
