ASRock Unveils Custom Radeon RX 6900 XT Phantom Gaming

Published

on

Following ASUS, ASRock presents its own version of the Radeon RX 6900 XT model, which until recently was announced only in the reference version from AMD. The Radeon RX 6900 XT Phantom Gaming will ship with three fans, factory overclocking and of course RGB lighting.

ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT Phantom Gaming features a Phantom Gaming 3X cooling system with three fans and a massive heatsink along the entire length of the graphics card. Copper heat pipes pass through the heatsink. The design features of the radiator include deflectors that enhance air draft. An additional reinforcing frame is located between the board and the heatsink. The backplate of the model is made of metal, which also improves heat dissipation from the board components.

Three 8-pin connectors are provided to power the video card. There are three Display Port 1.4 and one HDMI 2.1 connectors to connect the display. Speaking of lighting, ASRock’s model has addressable RGB elements on the middle fan and outside of the casing. The backlight can be controlled by software, and it can also be turned off with a switch on the board itself.

In terms of technical specs, the press release shared by Videocrdz does not mention GPU and memory clock speeds, but ASRock promises “outstanding factory overclocking.” Obviously, the video card will work “faster” than the reference model Radeon RX 6900 XT, but how much remains a mystery.

The price of the ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT Phantom Gaming is still unknown, as well as the date it goes on sale.

AMD is asking 6500 for its most powerful processor yet

AMD has finally revealed the official prices for the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 processors. Recall that they are now available as part of ready-made workstations, but later this year they will also go to retail.

AMD is asking $6,500 for its most powerful processor yet.  Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000 CPU Pricing Revealed

So, the prices for the CPU are as follows:

  • Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX – $6,500
  • Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5975WX – $3,300
  • Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5965WX – $2400

Thus, new items are significantly more expensive than their predecessors. For example, the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3995WX started at $5,490, while the Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3975WX was $2,750. There was no 24-core CPU in the previous line, so it will not work to compare prices here.

Also in the new line there are more models with 16 and 12 cores, but their prices have not yet been named.

Recall that the Ryzen Threadripper 5000 line is represented exclusively by Pro models. There will be no regular versions, but instead, the Pro models will go to retail and anyone can buy them.

AMD’s revenue will be hit hard by the success of Intel’s new processors. Ryzen desktop CPU sales to fall 26% year-on-year

AMDs revenue will be hit hard by the success of

Analysts at Morgan Stanley believe that AMD’s revenue from the sale of desktop processors will fall by a considerable 26% by the end of the year.

AMD's revenue will be hit hard by the success of Intel's new processors.  Ryzen desktop CPU sales to fall 26% year-on-year

There are several reasons for this. First, the success of competing Intel Alder Lake processors. Secondly, and directly related to the first point, AMD’s lack of new desktop processors in 2022. The current Ryzen 5000s have been out for over a year and a half, and while they compete quite well with Intel’s new products, AMD still needs to cut prices. Thirdly, the market as a whole is also to blame, in which there is a drop in demand.

In the second half of the year, AMD will release completely new Ryzen 7000 CPUs, but for most of the year AMD has to make do with old processors, so the new ones simply do not have time to offset the drop in sales as a whole for the year. However, already in 2023, analysts expect AMD’s revenue to decline by only 2%.

At the same time, we can recall that AMD continues to increase its share in the processor market, that is, its sales are generally growing.

New Intel video driver gets support for Arc A770M and

Intel has released new beta drivers for Intel Arc Alchemist Discrete Desktop and Mobile GPUs and 12th Gen Intel Xe-LP Integrated Graphics. One of the innovations there was support for mid-range and high-end A770M and A550M gaming graphics cards, which may indicate their imminent appearance on the market.

In addition, Intel has made it possible to disable built-in performance optimizations for applications. At the moment, the drivers are optimized for the 3DMark Timespy and Port Royale test applications, so the video cards show their power well in them. However, for the same reason, these data are not included in the overall statistics of the UL Benchmarks organization.

There is also support for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, F1 2022 and Arcadegeddon as part of the Game On program. And in some games, bugs have been fixed. The list of projects with fixes looks like this:

  • Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition (DX12);
  • Horizon Zero Dawn (DX12);
  • F1 2020 (DX12);
  • Crossfire (DX9);
  • Euro Truck Simulator 2 (DX11);
  • The Sims 4 (DX9);
  • Ghostwire: Tokyo (DX12).

Earlier it became known that a discrete Intel graphics card can also be “registered” in the Ayaneo Next II portable console. True, that will most likely be Arc A350M or A370M.
