ASRock reveals their Phantom Gaming Series of Radeon GPUs

It’s official, ASRock has entered the GPU market, releasing a number of Radeon RX 500 Phantom Gaming series GPUs to target both the low-end and mid-range GPU markets.   

At this time ASRock has not revealed any plans to create any GPUs using AMD’s Vega architecture, for now focusing their efforts on RX 550, RX 560, RX 570 and RX 580 models as well as their Phantom Gaming overclocking utility. 

Below are the specifications of all four ASRock Phantom Gaming GPU models, where we will list their clock speeds in the GPU’s Default, Silent and OC modes. Each GPU will ship with their “Default” clock speed profiles, though their OC and Silent modes can be unlocked using ASRock’s Phantom Gaming utility.

In the images above and below you can see that ASRock’s new RX570/580 Gaming X models will both ship with a dual-fan cooler design, with three DisplayPort outputs alongside HDMI 2.0 and DVI-D outputs. Both cards will use an 8-pin PCIe power connector for supplemental power, alongside the GPU’s PCIe 3.0 bus.  

Moving onto ASRock’s lower-end Phantom Gaming RX550/RX560 models, we can see that the company has designed these two models to models to use the same single-fan heatsink design and have no external power inputs, only drawing power from the GPU’s PCIe bus. ASRock has opted to design their RX 560 around AMD’s 14 CU (896 Stream Processors) RX 560 core design, not the 16CU (1024 Stream Processor) model, which something that potential purchasers should be aware of.

At this time ASRock has not revealed the pricing of these new GPU models, or when they will become available. ASRock has listed all of these GPUs with the following disclaimer “This model may not be sold worldwide. Please contact your local dealer for the availability of this model in your region.”
