ASRock has recently added the Radeon RX Vega series to their Phantom Gaming lineup, extending support to AMD’s flagship graphics cards. When the Phantom Gaming lineup initially launched, the first cards to be part of the lineup were the Radeon RX 500 series but now, AMD’s high-end series has been added to the lineup too.

While ASRock was having trouble extending their Phantom Gaming lineup to other market regions, since July 1st, the restrictions imposed by AMD are now somewhat removed and consumers can buy the graphics cards from various markets, including APAC, EMEA, and Latin America. The cards were expected to arrive in the other markets on July 1st and since then, ASRock has also added AMD’s flagship RX Vega graphics cards to the lineup too.

ASRock currently has two variants in their Vega lineup, the Phantom Gaming X RX Vega 64 and the Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX Vega 56. Both cards are based on the reference design with features that include everything you’d expect from the AMD Vega GPU architecture.

Coming to the specifications, the ASRock Phantom Gaming X RX Vega 64 features 4096 stream processors clocked at 1247 MHz base and 1546 MHz boost clock. The card adopts 8 GB HBM2 VRAM clocked at 945 MHz. along with a 2048-bit bus interface.

As mentioned before, the cards utilize the reference PCB and cooler design. We are looking at the mesh design on the front with a Radeon logo on the top and side. The blower fan has the ASRock Phantom Gaming logo instead of the Radeon “R”. The card also uses a custom designed backplate which reads Phantom Gaming and looks great.

The reason why ASRock isn’t offering a custom board yet is due to the fact that RX Vega is still not available in good quantities. Manufacturers want to maximize profits with this card because custom cooling or not, users who want to buy Vega will buy it regardless, even as a reference model.
