Last year, ASRock surprised us by entering the video card market as an AMD-exclusive brand. At first, the company's video cards weren't really exciting but now the company has a more interesting product mix. This lays to rest speculation that ASRock only entered the video card market to make a quick buck from last year's cryptocurrency mining craze. One new addition to ASRock's video card lineup is the Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi X 8G OC+.
The ASRock Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi X 8G OC+ has a 2.5-slot design and features a triple-fan cooling solution (2x 90mm + 1x 80mm), a 3D metal backplate, dual-BIOS, and ARGB LED lighting effects. It has 10+1 phase power design, 8GB GDDR6 memory clocked at 14Gbps, a base clock of 1810MHz (1885MHz in Tweak mode), and a Boost clockspeed of 2025MHz (up to 2040MHz in Tweak mode). One special feature of the card is that it has six display outputs! ASRock equipped the card with two HDMI ports and four DisplayPorts, that's pretty unique in the consumer segment.
In Chinese culture, "Taichi" represents the philosophical state of yin and yang. ASRock's Taichi graphics cards are designed for tech geeks and power users who care about products' design and quality, and comes with premium features that can fulfill every geek's dream and fulfill power user's important task. To carry forward Taichi's spirit, which symbolizes the balance between elegance and stability; Taichi graphics cards are formed with two main elements in mind - "design" and "quality".

Featuring a 3D metal backplate, 6 display outputs (4 DisplayPorts and 2 HDMI connectors), and a dual BIOS and full housing within a reinforced metal frame. Based on AMD's new RX 5700 XT RDNA architecture, the Taichi X series graphics cards are capable of delivering superior 1440p productive and gaming experiences. Onboard is a reliable heat-sink module, and the 10+1 phase high quality power supply provides decent power. Therefore, the Taichi X 8G OC+ edition features a boost GPU clock of up to 2040 MHz, which is much higher than most other RX 5700 XT graphics cards to date.
"Elegance makes glory!" Not only does the graphics card exceed in performance and quality, but exudes in design aesthetics. ASRock has paid a lot of attention and effort to product outlook. Adding a breath of sophisticated technology, the precise stacking and assembly of embedded gears makes the graphics card backplate more legendary to the eye, and brings a piece of design nostalgia - something users had never known before on graphics cards. The ARGB lighting on the front cover clearly displays its beauty and awesomeness. Accompanying this unique design is the center fan which is decorated with a moving colorful halo, something geeks can surely appreciate being purely Taichi X.
ASRock brings quality and reliability to the Taichi X series graphics cards by implementing a lot of high-quality components, such as a long-life power choke, two- ball bearing fans with 0dB fan-stop functionality, a high thermal conductivity pad, and galvanized thermal pipe.
