VideoCardz has spotted custom editions of AMD’s upcoming RX 5500 XT graphics cards from AIB partners. The models, from ASRock and Gigabyte, showcase the respective companies’ custom cooling solutions for the new batch of midrange graphics cards based on the Navi 14 silicon. ASRock, for one, is pictured with a Challenger graphics card which will join the company’s top of the line Phantom Gaming brand. The Challenger D 8G OC (which will also be available in 4 GB VRAM) features a dual-slot, dual-fan cooler with a black shroud and yellow accents, and comes factory-overclocked to 1737 MHz. I/O is taken care of by 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI connectors.
Gigabyte’s cards are the RX 5500 XT GAMING OC and RX 5500 XT OC. The Gaming OC already features a triple-fan WindForce 3X cooler, which might mean there is no AORUS model to be launched on their RX 5500 XT – with AORUS being a premium gaming brand, that makes relative sense. The Gaming OC also features a 1737 MHz overclocked frequency, and both it and the dual-fan RX 5500 XT OC will be available in both 4 GB and 8 GB VRAM capacities. I/O is the same for both cards: 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI connectors.
