Question Are there any differences between these two cards, or is it just the brand ?

So i have an i5 9400f and 8x2 2666mhz.
I would like to know, between these 2 cards, which one would be better ?

XFX RX 6600 Speedster SWFT 210
MSI RX 6600 Mech 2X 8G

core clocks are the same
xfx unit suggests 550w PSU, MSI only says 500 or greater - not a massive change

https://versus.com/en/msi-radeon-rx-6600-xt-mech-2x-oc-vs-xfx-speedster-swft-210-radeon-rx-6600-xt seems to suggest XFX can support more displays until you look at the ports area of page and its the same.

not a massive difference between them really. Just buy whichever is cheaper, they more or less the same.
how about cooling? Which one is better in terms of temperature then? Their both the same price in my country

i looked at both and they appear to have same boost clocks as well. So the only difference might be in design.

MSI doesn't mention its base clock but XFX mention theirs is up to 1626mhz
Game clock up to 2044 mhz
Boost up to 2491mhz on both cards

Game Clock" is the expected GPU clock when running in typical gaming applications, set to typical TGP (Total Graphics Power). Actual individual game clock results may vary.

Boost Clock" is the maximum frequency achievable on the GPU running a bursty workload. Boost clock achievability, frequency, and sustainability will vary based on several factors, including but not limited to: thermal conditions and variation in applications and workloads.
they pretty much the same otherwise.

the cooling/power delivery of a card makes an enormous difference, look at for example stock dell 2080ti vs kingpin 2080ti with huge copper heatsinks and water cooling. a good vs bad gpu cooling/power setup can easily make it 25% better

None of that is relevant here, comparing two near identical cards with the same power delivery and modestly different fan setups.

i was so mad when I got it and felt how light it was lmao it was like a mcdonalds toy, also once I added real heatsinks/fans to it it can go over 3100 mhz stable and 2400/fast mem timing. also the actual power delivery on the xfx card i noticed was actually overheating and causing crashes

so which one of them do you think get achieve better temperatures?

These 2 cards may not cool any better than the other. They both utilize open air coolers, which are infamous for their superior cooling and noise profiles over single fan radial coolers, but at the cost of higher case ambient temperatures.
But there's more than one type of open air gpu cooler, and it's shown by which way the heatsink's finstack is pointing. On both, the finstack points to the front and back.
I believe this type is inferior to the side finstack, solely concerning gpu cooling, but it can introduce less gpu waste heat inside the case.
The fans push air into the heatsink, after which it goes 'through the lanes' and out from the gpu. Most people have front intake fans set up, and the air from those is going to run into the front exhaust of the gpu, create a pocket of turbulence, and delay getting the heated air from that end out of the PC.

Whichever is cheaper may just be the way to go if there really aren't any other options...
