ASRock Enters GPU Market With Phantom Gaming Series!

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 The Radeon RX 500 series was designed specifically for system upgrades, catering to gamers who are hindered by outdated technology and aren’t able to enjoy optimal experiences in modern games or the latest display technologies.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 AMD Radeon RX 500 Series Tech Report

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!

If you are wondering why Joe Macri (in white) is here as well, check out his presentation on The Disruptive Nature of AMD Ryzen! 😀

Updated at 2017-04-19 : Added the SEP Pricing section.

Be sure to also check out the 27 new AMD Radeon RX 500 graphics cards that is now available for sale!

 

The AMD Radeon RX 500 Series Tech Briefing

The AMD Radeon RX 500 Series is based on the same AMD Polaris architecture as the AMD Radeon RX 480. Here is Adam’s full presentation.

Here are the key takeaway points :

  • There will be four models – the Radeon RX 580, Radeon RX 570, Radeon RX 560 and the Radeon RX 550.

  • The Radeon RX 580 is a faster version of the Radeon RX 480, with a 137 MHz (12%) higher base clock, and a 74 MHz (6%) higher boost clock.
  • The Radeon RX 580 will be able to offer 60+ fps in most games running at 1440p, and 90+ fps in VR games.
  • The Radeon RX 570 is a faster version of the Radeon RX 470, with a 242 MHz (26%) higher base clock, and a 38 MHz (3%) higher boost clock.
  • The Radeon RX 570 will be able to offer 60+ fps in most games running at 1080p.
[adrotate group=”1″]
  • The Radeon RX 560 has 2 additional Compute Units than the Radeon RX 460, a faster version of the Radeon RX 470, with a 85 MHz (8%) higher base clock, and a 75 MHz (6%) higher boost clock.
  • The Radeon RX 560 will be able to offer 60+ fps in most games running at 1080p.
  • The Radeon RX 550 will offer a new lower price point in the Radeon RX family.
  • The Radeon RX 550 will have up to 8 Compute Units, with a boost clock of up to 1183 MHz, and a 128-bit memory interface with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory.
  • All Radeon RX 500 Series graphics cards will support Radeon Chill, which saves power and reduces heat while improving response time.

SEP Pricing

Here are the official SEP pricing by AMD. The prices of the actual cards, however, is dependent on the card brand :

  • AMD Radeon RX 580 – US$ 199
  • AMD Radeon RX 570 – US$ 169
  • AMD Radeon RX 560 – US$ 99
  • AMD Radeon RX 550 – US$ 79

 

What Happened To AMD Vega?

[adrotate group=”2″]

We all know that the AMD Vega is coming in 2017. AMD briefed us on its GPU architecture, as well as its memory architecture. They also showed off an AMD Vega prototype running DOOM in 4K. So where the heck is it?

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.

In case you are wondering if AMD may have hit a snag with the Vega GPU, AMD is already using it in the AMD Radeon Instinct MI25 Vega accelerator. You can check out some Radeon Instinct servers using the Vega GPU.
