ASRock's First Phantom Graphics Cards Will be Available Starting April 19th

ASRock's Phantom series of graphics cards have been rumored and officially launched for a while now, but actual availability thresholds have been elusive. Now, a hard date has come out of the woodwork: ASRoc's first foray into the graphics card market with materialize with custom designs of AMD's RX 580 and RX 570 graphics cards on April 19th.

The Phantom series of graphics cards are ASRock's own takes on AMD's Polaris silicon. The graphics cards will apparently ship with three distinct operating modes: a "Silent" mode, an "OC" mode, and standard clocks. The Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX 580 8 G will ship with 1,324 MHz clocks on silent mode; 1,435 MHz on OC mode; and 1380 MHz in the standard mode. The second card to be on offer on April 19th will be the Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX 570 8G, with clocks at 1,228 MHz on silent mode; 1,331 MHz on OC mode; and 1380 MHz in the standard mode. Connectivity options for both graphics cards is set at 3x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI, and 1x DVI ports. No pricing information is available at time of writing.

Would it really make sense reviewing it, though? It shouldn't be much of a difference compared to the counterparts sold by other AIBs...?

I believe that any product that ends in the hands of customers deserves a fair review.
People want to know how well the PCB is built, how the cooler performs etc.

This is, after all, ASRock's debut

I would like to see the construction, cooler, fans etc, would want noise readings and temp. While in might be nice to see some new baseline RX 580 8Gb bench's as the last one is from July 2017 on a Gigabyte's AORUS RX 580 XTR. I suppose the latest bench's are from December 2017 when there was the Adrenalin Edition drivers.

I wonder would Gainward be pissed off, since they had also Phantom branded cards..

That is a fair point. It would be interesting to see how well they do in their first outing into the GPU market.

Yeah that's kinda what I meant. @Raevenlord TPU should do a few reviews of AsRocks new cards just to see what they have to offer and and if they are as worthy card builders as they are mobo builders.
