The new brand of the popular company born with the entry into the graphics card industry will soon become the name that leads to all its most advanced products?
We continue to wait for the official announcement of the Coffee Lake-R generation Intel, With intriguing core octagonals at lower prices than before, and in the meantime are content with new motherboards based on the chipset that will accompany the move - Z390 of course.
ASRock decided to take the opportunity to make a significant switching change, it seems - With the name Phantom Gaming Which will replace the old brand Fatal1ty, thus creating a certain uniformity between its range of graphics cards (with cores manufactured AMD Only, at least in its current incarnation) and its range of leading motherboards.
Z390's product line ASRock It will still include familiar incarnations of models such as Extreme4, Pro4 and also Taichi, but advanced models with the name of the famous gamer will not be there - and instead we will meet the Phantom Gaming 4, Phantom Gaming SLI, Phantom Gaming ITX and also the Phantom Gaming 9, including the custom logo and painting in shades of silver and red that make it up. Not a huge change, but perhaps one that could make it a little easier for consumers who need to navigate their way through countless names and nicknames in the field.
First pictures of the Phantom Gaming 9 flagship, which is expected to be the most expensive and sophisticated of all, offer us three rugged PCI-Express 3.0 × 16 connectors, including three M.2 connectors for drives SSD Fast, built-in LED illumination in board coolers, a small seven-segment screen to display system status outside of the operating system, built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity - and three (!) Wired Ethernet connections, one of which supports speeds of up to 10 gigabytes per second. What other surprises await us around the corner, fromASRock Or else? Hope to get your answers soon.
