ASRock announces its custom Radeon RX 6800 series graphics cards

ASRock has announced its custom-cooled Radeon RX 6800 series graphics cards. The four cards announced by ASRock are the flagship Radeon RX 6800 XT Taichi X 16G OC, the mid-range Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800 Phantom Gaming D 16G OC, and the entry-level Radeon RX 6800 Challenger Pro 16G OC.

Featuring AMD RDNA 2 GPU architecture, the new ASRock Radeon RX 6800 series support the DirectX 12 Ultimate standard and hardware-accelerated raytracing. All cards have 16GB of GDDR6 memory and support PCIe 4.0. The cooling solutions of these cards use ASRock’s Striped Axial fan design for improved cooling performance, allowing them to come overclocked out-of-the-box. Additionally, all cards feature Polychrome Sync ARGB LEDs to synchronise with other compatible products.

The Radeon RX 6800 XT Taichi X 16G OC uses a triple-fan design, with the middle-fan featuring a unique ARGB Taichi halo. Besides the halo, the card also has ARGB LEDs on the side and on the metal backplate. This card features a Dual-BIOS button, allowing users to easily change between the OC and Silent mode.

The ASRock Radeon RX 6800 series Phantom Gaming cards also feature a similar triple fan design with a middle RGB fan. Just like the Taichi model, it features a reinforced metal frame and backplate to avoid bending on the PCB. The RGB LEDs of the fan and on the side can be adjusted and synchronised through ASRock Polychrome Sync.

The ASRock Radeon RX 6800 Challenger Pro 16G OC features a low-key design, with side RGB LED lighting, and an all-black design. Just like the other ASRock Radeon RX 6800 series cards, it also has three fans to handle the cooling.

Pricing and availability details were not shared yet. You can learn more about the Radeon RX 6800 XT Taichi X 16G OC HERE, the Radeon RX 6800XT Phantom Gaming D 16G OC HERE, the Radeon RX 6800 Phantom Gaming D 16G OC HERE, and the Radeon RX 6800 Challenger Pro 16G OC HERE.
