Both of these cards are practically the same but the OC edition comes factory overclocked out of the box. MSI has not revealed what the boost clock speeds of these cards are so we do not know those details at the moment.

Other features include support for Windows 11 and Microsoft DirectX 12 Ultimate and AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) upscaling technology.
