ASRock Unveils Two New Radeon RX 5700 Phantom Gaming Series GPUs
ASRock says the Radeon RX 5700 Phantom Gaming series cards are geared towards performance gaming at 1440p (although they can push 8K HDR 60 Hz) and perform better than the AMD public version card reference frequency.
Two New Radeon RX 5700 Phantom GPUs
The Radeon RX 5700 XT Phantom Gaming D 8G OC features an AMD 7nm Radeon RX 5700 chip, 8 GB of 256bit GDDR6 VRAM, a base clock speed of 1690 MHz, a boost clock speed of 1835 MHz (although it can reach up to 1950 MHz), two eight-pin power connectors, PCIe 4.0 bus support, ARGB lighting, and triple-fan cooling. Specifications-wise, it has a Navi 10 XT GPU with 2560 cores, 160 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. It has three DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC 1.2a and one HDMI 2.0b output.
The Radeon RX 5700 Phantom Gaming D 8G OC has virtually the same features except for the base clock speed and the boost clock speed, which come in slightly lower at 1610 MHz and 1725 MHz (up to 1750 MHz), respectively. It uses a Navi 10 XL chip with 2304 cores, 144 TMUs, and 64 ROPs.
The cooling and heat dissipation arrangements are interesting, with a thermal construction based around a triple-fan set up with a 2.7-slot thickness heat sink. ASRock has also thrown in 0dB Silent Cooling tech, so the fans can be turned off when performing light tasks for what it calls ‘zero noise.’
The ARGB lighting can also sync up with ASRock motherboards via Polychrome SYNC to create bespoke lighting setups. There’s also a chunky backplate that gives both cards a streamlined, visually appealing feel that should please the aesthetic builders out there.
In our estimation, these are two very good looking GPUs (a testament to ASRock’s focus on design as well as performance) that should pack some serious graphical oomph.
There’s been no word on pricing as of writing, though.
