ASRock introduced its cards, and they operate at the same frequencies as others. No explanation yet.
ASRock has expanded its product range with three models of the Radeon RX 5500 XT graphics card. The youngest is the Radeon RX 5500 XT Challenger D 4G OC, and the other two received 8 GB of memory. This is the Radeon RX 5500 XT Phantom Gaming D 8G OC and the Radeon RX 5500 XT Challenger D 8G OC.
Challenger models are completely identical, with the exception of the amount of memory. There are the same cooling systems and frequencies: 1737-1845 MHz for the GPU and 14 GHz for the memory. Actually, exactly the same frequencies and the model Phantom.
And this is very strange. The fact is that, apparently, the GPUs of absolutely all non-reference Radeon RX 5500 XT video cards work either at the recommended frequencies 1717-1845 MHz, or at the above. Not only is the 20 MHz difference just ridiculous, it’s also unclear where the cohesion of the producers came from. This is likely due to some requirements or limitations of AMD itself. At the same time, cards still have a margin for overclocking.
Returning to video cards, they all have the same set of ports: one HDMI and three DisplayPort. The length is 241 mm, which is quite normal.
