Good to see Asrock keep putting out itx cards. Though this (as all GPUs today) needs to a) become available, and b) come down in price by ~33-50%.

I have 1 challenger 6600XT on my 5 x 6600xt mining rig. It's very light and the cooler feels on the cheaper side, that being said it is the coolest/quietest running 6600xt out of all of them. No stability issues and it clocks average.

Challenger are the mainstream cards, like Sapphire Pulse.

I know their 5700s would crossflash to 5700XTs

Pretty solid products, been using them for my last few motherboards and they are rock solid, so good that I would not be able to say from first hand experience about waranty.
But from what I've seen over the internet, I never seen any big issues regarding warranty and customer support. So we should be fine :)
