As upgradable as PCs can be, the process is typically restricted to wholesale swapping of components. Remove that veteran GeForce GTX 1060 and slot in a shiny new RTX 4070 Ti. Apart from memory and storage, where you can sometimes just bolt on more, expanding your system’s capabilities is an “out with the old, in with... Read more...
Evidence that ASRock is busy working on new AMD RDNA 3 architecture graphics cards has emerged online. Tech site VideoCardz has acquired some exclusive and commendably clear images that appear to be of genuine ASRock Phantom Gaming and Taichi series graphics cards based on the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and XT SKUs. These... Read more...
ASRock has launched a 13.3-inch PC case side panel display kit. It is an IPS monitor that fits within the common transparent left-side window of a tower PC case. The PCs and components maker amusingly touts this rather small in-PC screen as being a choice that could "double your productivity." If the above in-PC... Read more...
PC and components maker ASRock has another custom paint job motherboard in the pipeline. Coinciding with today’s release of the Intel Core i9-13900K and other overclockable 13th Gen Core ‘Raptor Lake’ K processors, Intel Z790 chipset motherboards have naturally come to the fore. And, as per our headline, ASRock has a... Read more...
ASRock has officially extended its reach into gaming monitor territory with the launch of two models, as was tipped earlier this summer. They include the 34-inch Phantom Gaming PG34WQ15R2B with a curved Vertical Alignment (VA) display, and a smaller 27-inch Phantom Gaming PG27FF1A built around a flat In-Plane... Read more...
When AMD's Socket AM4 platform for its brand-new Zen processors debuted, it came along with a number of growing pains. Most pressing were those related to the memory controller, but there were problems with USB connectivity and some early reliability issues, too. It's natural to expect there'd be similar teething...

Intel’s first Arc Alchemist graphics card sold through a major US retailer looks set to drop on Monday. Major online PC and electronics dealer Newegg has listed the ASRock Intel Arc A380 Challenger ITX 6GB OC today. This compact single fan ‘ITX’ card is listed by Newegg at $139.99, which falls in line with... Read more...
ASRock makes a fair number of products, including motherboards and graphics cards, but unlike some of its rivals it has yet to release any gaming monitors (or even non-gaming displays). It's an area that ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI all compete in, but not ASRock. It looks like that's going to change very soon, though... Read more...
We may have just seen a key benchmark result for the upcoming 13th gen Intel Core processor family, code named Raptor Lake. A direct comparison appears to have emerged, pitting an Intel Core i7-13700K system with DDR5 against a previous seemingly otherwise identical result on a system featuring DDR4. Yes, it could be...

One of the highlights of Intel's upcoming 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs is that they are drop in compatible with existing Alder Lake platforms. This has the added benefit of facilitating some interesting performance leaks that look beyond the CPU. Case in point, a purported Core i5-13600K has been spotted on Geekbench in... Read more...
ASRock isn't waiting around for Intel's 13th Gen Raptor Lake processors to arrive before updating its existing motherboards to support the next-gen chips. The company has already made available BIOS updates for dozens of 600-series motherboards spanning the boards based on Z690 all the way down to H610. We still... Read more...
Looked at the prices of DDR5 memory lately? The newer, faster, all-ECC system RAM is coming down in cost slowly, but it's nowhere near as cheap as ubiquitous DDR4 SDRAM. Plus, due to the latency advantages of hot-clocked DDR4 versus the less-expensive DDR5 modules on the market, DDR4 systems often end up faster in... Read more...
Custom hardware from AMD powers the latest generation game consoles from Microsoft (Xbox Series X|S) and Sony (PlayStation 5), but not every APU designed for these systems makes the cut. What do you do with these excess chips if you're AMD? Find ways to recycle the partially defective hardware, such as injecting them... Read more...
It seems ASRock is eager for Intel to launch its next-generation Alder Lake processors, and we would venture a guess that so are other motherboard makers. As it applies to ASRock specifically, however, a leaked list of around three dozen models based on various 600-series chipests has found its way to the... Read more...
It may be hard to believe, but up until this point, none of AMD's OEM partners have released mini-ITX versions of RDNA 2 graphics cards. Well, that drought ends with ASRock's Radeon RX 6600 XT Challenger ITX, which ditches a full-length board design with triple fans in favor of a truncated board with just a single... Read more...
In case there was any doubt, the answer is yes, your ASRock Z590 OC Formula motherboard will play nice with Windows 11 when it ships out later this year. Same goes for ASRock's X570 Aqua and a host of other motherboards based on various AMD and Intel chipsets. There are still other Windows 11 requirements at play, but... Read more...
As we saw in our Radeon RX 6900 XT review, AMD's flagship consumer graphics card based on its second generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) graphics architecture is an immensely powerful and capable GPU, with a beefy 16GB of GDDR6 memory to boot. Not content to stick with stock performance, however, AMD's hardware partners... Read more...
It seems Intel is about to launch a line of Xeon W processors based on Rocket Lake. One of its hardware partners certainly believes that to be true—over at ASRock, an updated CPU support list highlights a handful of mainstream Xeon W-1300 series processors, along with some basic specifications for each SKU...

Up to this point, every Radeon rumor has been centered on AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6700 series. That all changed today. For the first time, there is strong evidence to suggest a Radeon RX 6600 series is in the pipeline and will be releasing soon. And interestingly enough, the Radeon RX 6600 XT may end up with the same... Read more...
AMD today released its most powerful GPU ever, the Radeon RX 6900 XT, and right on cue its add-in-board (AIB) partners are starting to unveil custom designs. The first two out of the gate are ASRock and ASUS, though you can bet others will follow. In the meantime, let's have a look at what the pair of AIBs have... Read more...
AMD launched its Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT to the public last week, and as expected, they represented quite the performance leap over their Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT predecessors. More importantly, the cards traded blows with NVIDIA new GeForce RTX 30 Series. While neither company's cards offer... Read more...
