We Knew It Was Coming

 

It was teased only back in March now and while it feels like it has been months, it has been just over a month since the first whispers of ASRock entering the graphics card market first started.

Fast forward to today, and we have the world's first Phantom Gaming X graphics card in the Radeon RX 580 8G OC model from ASRock. There are a bunch of firsts with ASRock's baby steps into the graphics card market, with this being first and foremost the very first time ASRock has stepped onto the graphics card market.

 

Second, this is the first 'custom' Radeon RX 580 this year and the only 'new' Radeon graphics card released in 2018. TweakTown has the very first model, and while this is a new brand for ASRock, the company isn't bringing anything truly new to the table with their Phantom Gaming X line.

 

 

That doesn't mean it's bad though, as this is early days for ASRock as they are venturing out of where they've been kicking a fair amount of ass in certain markets: motherboards. Instead of a mining-focused card, we have a gaming release which is nice to see. A single 8-pin PCIe power connector is another nice touch, and a not-so-out-of-control visual aesthetic that is pleasing to see.
