ASRock Announces Custom Radeon RX 5700 Challenger Series Graphics Cards

ASRock has taken the lead in announcing the first custom models of the Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards. Specifically, the company has announced a pair of model’s from the ‘Challenger’ series, which we’ll detail below.

ASRock Radeon RX 5700 Challenger Series

The ASRock Challenger series consists of two different models: the RX 5700 XT Challenger 8G OC and the RX 5700 Challenger 8G OC; both of which feature a dual-fan cooling configuration with a pair of 100mm fans, and a 4x 8mm copper heat-pipes. They also up the power connections to 2x 8-pin rather than a single 8-pin and a single 6-pin from the reference design.

The cards also both feature the same physical dimensions at 11-inches long, although as we can see from the photos, the actual board is quite a bit smaller than the cooler itself. Both models also come equipped with a high quality aluminum backplate.

In terms of the clock speeds, both models will also feature a small factory OC to both the Base Clock and Game Clock. Those specifications are as follows:

RX 5700 XT Challenger 8G OC

  • Base Clock: 1650 MHz
  • Game Clock: 1795 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1905 MHz

RX 5700 Challenger 8G OC

  • Base Clock: 1515 MHz
  • Game Clock: 1675 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1725 MHz

No word yet on specific pricing or release date, but we expect to hear more soon.
