ASRock Adds Radeon RX Vega 56 And Radeon Vega 64 To Its Gaming Portfolio


Popular semiconductor manufacturer, ASRock has added more products to its Phantom Gaming series with the inclusion of AMD’s two new GPUs – the Radeon RX Vega 56 and the Radeon Vega 64. This move allows the tech company to now offer high-end offerings produced by AMD. Both these graphics cards are designed based on AMD’s reference design that also features air cooling provided by a composite vapour chamber apart from a high-performance blower. The Vega 56 and Vega 64 run on reference clock rates. The devices also feature a double bearing fan that aids faster heat dissipation.

Phantom Radeon Vega 56: Features and Specifications

The Phantom Radeon Vega 56 clocks a speed of 1156 – 1471 MHz and the Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX Vega 64 operates at a speed of 1247 – 1546 MHz, both of which are the recommended speeds suggested by AMD. The devices also feature display outputs in the form of three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors apart from one HDMI 2.0 connector. These graphics adapters have been on offer by ASRock only since March 2018.

While the company is relatively new in the market for these products, it has been selling its Phantom Gaming Radeon RX 500 series GPUs on a worldwide basis for a while now. However, some sources understand that ASRock is mainly looking to market these AMD branded products only in China owing to their low-cost pricing. On the other hand, AMD’s Radeon RX Vega is significantly higher than Polaris based devices so it is likely that these devices will be sold to markets in the West.

As of now there have been no confirmations or indications of pricing for the Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX Vega GPUs produces by ASRock, but it is widely expected that they will be priced in a similar fashion as to products produced by its rivals that feature AMD’s design. Earlier it was suggested that there were no AMD products in line to be released by ASRock until February 2019 based on a leak of the company’s roadmap. So if these rumours are true, it is likely that these two GPUS will be made available by early next year.
