TAIPEI, Taiwan, March 28, 2018 – ASRock just announced that they’re moving into the graphics card market with the Phantom Gaming range – a strong line up of AMD Radeon RX500 series cards, including the Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX580 8G, Radeon RX570 8G, the Phantom Gaming Radeon RX560 4G/2G and Radeon RX550 4G/2G.
“ASRock finally expand into the graphics card field,” said Mr. LL Shiu, ASRock Chief Executive Officer. “We are happy and proud to team up with AMD, our strong and reliable partner, and of course we look forward to bringing out more interesting and competitive products in future.”
The ASRock Phantom Gaming Series
ASRock Phantom Gaming series promises elegant design, flexibility for power users combined with user friendly control, and of course, outstanding performance. ASRock never compromises on product quality and performance, so these new products are packed with amazing features as well as the best components to ensure they meet everyone’s expectations.
Graphics cards from this range offer features such as dual ball-bearing fans and are built around a sophisticated extra-large copper-base aluminum alloy composite heat pipe-equipped heatsink design for optimal cooling. Together, these technologies provide enhanced system performance, higher frame rates and long-term product reliability.
These new cards will be based on the Radeon RX 500 series, which features a powerful combination of exceptional game performance, high clock speeds, and AMD’s refined 2nd generation “Polaris” architecture. The Radeon RX 500 series was designed specifically for system upgrades, catering to gamers who are hindered by outdated technology and aren’t able to enjoy optimal experiences in modern games or the latest display technologies.
The year 2017 is definitely The Year Of AMD Rising, with the launch of the AMD Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 processors and the forthcoming launch of AMD Radeon Vega. Even before the Radeon Vega arrives, AMD introduced the AMD Radeon RX 500 Series graphics cards.

The Radeon RX 500 Series offers the latest 14 nm FinFET process technology, higher clock speeds, hardware H.265 encoding and decoding capability, as well as enhanced idle and multi-monitor efficiency through Radeon Chill and Radeon FreeSync.
Radeon Chill improves response times while reducing power consumption and thermal output of AMD Radeon graphics cards.
Radeon ReLive, that was introduced recently, is an end-to-end recording and streaming software supports all of the top streaming codecs.
Radeon ReLive is GPU-optimised and allows for smooth game streaming without stuttering.
AMD just announced the new Radeon RX 500 Series graphics cards. Dubbed Polaris Refined, they run the same Polaris GPUs as the Radeon RX 480 graphics card. They basically offer higher clock speeds and/or additional Compute Units. There was one new model though – the entry-level Radeon RX 550.
In this article, we will share with you the first 27 Radeon RX 500 graphics cards to be introduced into the market. Check them out!
Last week, Adam Kozak, Radeon Product Marketing Manager, flew in to brief us on the Polaris Refined graphics cards. In this tech report, we will share with you the details of the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series graphics cards, as well as Adam’s full briefing. Enjoy!
We gently prodded Adam who would only say that it’s “coming later” in 2017. With AMD introducing the Polaris Refined graphics cards in this new series, we think that they will most likely introduce the Vega-based graphics cards in late Q3, or early Q4 2017 to make it for 2017 Christmas sales.
