ASRock is the first new player in the GPU market for a long time. We review their AMD-based RX 580 Phantom Gaming X, which is an overclocked custom-design variant. ASRock has optimized their card for low-cost, which matters a lot today due to prices being inflated by GPU mining.

Well yeah Asrock have to do better than this and I have no doubt they have all the expertise to made it. But this one is category of Asus duals, MSI Dual fans design(not even armor), palit duals etc. So a bit better than reference blower but that it's. Looking forward to see when they finally made real high end design by their own.

Very much doubt it, Navi is 7nm but that is far far away. Though there have been Vega 12 on linux kernel drivers, but that might just be mobile chip from CES 2018.

On the Clock Throttling page you say it has a 8-pin connector which is rated for 300w. I thought the 8-pin was only rated for 150w, add the 75w from the PCI-E slot and you get 225w.

The 225 W mentioned by @newtekie1 , a plus 15 % power limit and a peak power consumption of 206 W is in my book cutting it very close. Was is possible to change the power limit in let's say Afterburner or was it in a modified bios?

7nm should happen later this year or early next. TSMC/GloFo 7nm is not as advanced as Intel's 10nm. Most of this nm talk is marketing. 12nm is not true 12nm either.

Navi is on AMD's roadmap in 2018-2019

Whoops, typo. Fixed.

Like on all AMD cards that I'm aware of you can change the power limit in Wattman. For this card by + or - 50%

Not being a normal miner, I have (k)no(w) :rolleyes: idea what a DAP 160 is, would like to see mining testing use something more common(?) like Nicehash, its benchmarking function.


On newegg the lowest price is $320 (not open-box) for card with these specs, the sad part, and no surprise, is that the 4GB memory cards cost as much if not more than most of the 8gb memory cards. IDK, who still shops Newegg for components but I'm sure your wallet is screaming for a break from being gouged.

Yea, have to agree their pricing is all over the place for many things on that site anymore... And this from someone who sung the old Egg praises, since before the last millennia. Since that Chinese consortium took over I see them no longer always on their mark.

Given that GDDR is still close to double when reference/MSRP came out I'm cutting some prices out there a break. Most say 8Gb of GDDR was like $40 per card when those $230 original MSRP where prenented, so today you might adjust that to more like $270. Right now there's little to not a lot concurrency influence in this range; although RX 570 4Gb are seeming to be holding strong still. A few weeks ago a decent/middle ground ASUS RX 580 8Gb OC got down to $300 with a $30 Rebate. I was hoping to see a drop to $280 and more of the higher grade/equipped models to start seeing the same reductions, but as of the last week prices held strong or somewhat moved up.

Shut my mouth!... just went looking and Micro Center has that ASUS RX 580 8Gb OC got down to $270 after $30 Rebate!

Requires a rebate, they get 300 bux off you up front. Not worth paying more just for them to lose the rebate in the mail...

Hopefully they will do a refresh review after they get the firmware updated for the correct tdp.

Too bad it wont hit U.S. markets...

I was happy when my factory overclocked 1060 came with a single 6pin. It overclocks pretty much at the same level as those with more power intake.
However, in this case we're talking about the reference design.

(Howdy Neighbor) Like us here in New Zealand you'll be ripped off as usual just like we are where we pay almost 2.5 times the U.S price for any PC component


Asus RX580 8GB NZ$388.97 ($270USD) actually equates to $691.46NZD
