ASRock unveils Phantom RX Vega 56 and Vega 64 graphics cards

The Phantom family of graphics cards from ASRock continues this week with two new members: the Phantom RX Vega 56 and the Phantom RX Vega 64 . The Phantom RX Vega 56 is based on the same HBM2 memory as the Phantom RX Vega 64 but with a 256-bit memory interface. “HBM2 memory is good for gaming, but it is limited to the GPU’s memory capacity,” says the company. “ASRock is proud to introduce Phantom RX Vega 56 with more memory with a 256-bit memory interface.”

ASRock is a Taiwanese company that has been in the graphics card business for quite some time now. They mostly make lower-end cards for the budget-conscious, but it seems that they’ve finally decided to venture into the high-end market. These two new graphics cards, the ASRock Phantom RX Vega 56 and 64, are both part of Asus’ new “Vega” series, and they were unveiled today at the Capsaicin event in Taipei.

The latest edition of the ASRock Phantom series is an extreme product for extreme gamers: Phantom RX Vega 56 and Phantom RX Vega 64 are more than just graphic cards. These are also motherboards with the best VRM solution that supports VR headsets (ASRock Integrated VRM).

With the Phantom series and the RX 500 series graphics cards, ASRock has already entered the graphics card market. It has recently released two additional cards on its website that are not yet available for purchase elsewhere in the globe. The GPUs in question are the Phantom Gaming X RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64.

With the current potential, it seems that ASRock is fully committing to the GPU market. ASRock’s flagship graphics card, the Phantom RX Vega 64, is AMD’s fastest gaming GPU for PCs. ASRock didn’t bring any unique boards, instead opting for the standard AMD GPU architecture, which has the same specs as the AMD RX 56 and RX 64 GPUs. As an example, consider Asus putting an Nvidia GTX 1080 founders edition card to market.
