MSI is one of the largest producers of graphics cards, but in contrast to Gigabyte and ASUS, they have not yet released a Radeon RX 7900 card. In fact, the business did not even demonstrate a reference-based approach that AMD provides to all of its partners.
MSI, unlike ASUS or Gigabyte, has not yet displayed a bespoke design. ASUS was able to deliver not only reference cards but also unique designs that were shipped to reviewers and retailers on schedule.
MSI has recently confirmed to Andreas Schilling (HardwareLuxx) that Radeon RX 7900 cards will be released, but not until the first quarter of 2023. In addition, no reference designs (MBA – Made by AMD) are planned.
Reports MSI will not have any Radeon RX 7900 XT(X) cards are not true. MSI is skipping MBA (Made by AMD) designs and will present custom designs in Q1 2023.

It comes as no surprise that MSI will offer Radeon 7900 cards, as the company stated on Twitter a few days ago.
What is unexpected is that it is taking so long and is manifestly later than the tweet suggested.
Available soon! https://t.co/LbdVmlMmAq

MSI is typically eager to display prototype designs weeks before mass production. However, the company has not yet provided a single render of the anticipated RX 7900 model.
However, the design may have undergone significant changes, or it may still be under development with no final decision made. In any case, MSI RX 7900 cards are not forthcoming.
