Reports that began circulating online a few weeks ago showed that ASRock, which was born about a decade ago from Asus, Will begin developing its own video cards - In a relatively portable and exotic MXM configuration. Now we get official proof that this surprising move is indeed approaching in a teaser video that went up on theYouTube The company's official - and evidence that the new competitor will also include seemingly standard desktop gaming models.
The short video does not reveal too much to us, but does show what looks like a discreet graphics card with Cooling Double fans from a number of different angles, in addition to the general adjectives 'mysterious', 'unexpected' and of course - 'fast'. The logo displayed answers to the name Phantom Gaming, and makes it clear to us that the company will also focus on the gaming enthusiasts community, with or without products that appeal to the various cryptocurrency miners in its niche.
