👤by Michael Pabia Comments 📅12.12.2019 14:41:58


ASRock today presents the latest addition to the Challenger Series graphics cards – the ASRock RX 5500 XT Challenger D 8G OC and ASRock RX 5500 XT Challenger D 4G OC. The Radeon RX 5500 XT is the latest addition to AMD’s advanced 7nm RDNA architecture. ASRock launches the Challenger models first but we expect the Phantom Gaming models to be released on a later date. The RX 5500 XT Challenger cards are available in 8GB GDDR6 and 4GB GDDR6 models. Just like the SAPPHIRE Radeon NITRO+ RX 5500 XT, ASRock’s Challenger Series RX 5500 XT sports an extended heat sink over the short PCB. Hence, both the ASRock RX 5500 XT Challenger D 8G OC and ASRock RX 5500 XT Challenger D 4G OC appear to have identical coolers and comes with a sturdy metal backplate. The Radeon RX 5500 Challenger series graphics cards feature a dual-fan design sporting 90mm fans. The heatsink comes with 3 copper heat pipes to enhance heat dissipation.
