ASRock is still fairly new to the graphics card game, but the company has just announced its new line of Challenger graphics cards for the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700. These feature a plastic black shroud with yellow and white accents and come with a small factory overclock right out of the box. 

The ASRock Radeon RX 5700 XT Challenger 8G OC has a base clock of 1,650MHz and game clock of 1,795MHz, compared to the 1,605MHz base clock and 1,755MHz boost clock on the reference card. Similarly, the Radeon RX 5700 Challenger 8G OC has a 1,515MHz base clock and 1,675MHz boost clock, slightly above the reference 1,465MHz base clock and 1,625MHz boost clock.

They are both double-slot cards and measure 281mm in length. The cooling solution comprises four 8mm copper heat pipes that channel heat away from the GPU to the finned heatsink. Finally, they're also equipped with dual 100mm fans and a metal backplate for some extra structural reinforcement. 

Both cards also feature dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors, a departure from the 8-pin and 6-pin connectors on the reference models. 

There's no word yet on pricing.
