Niche Gamer’s Take: While the ASRock Radeon RX 5700 XT Challenger Pro 8G OC is clocked the same as the current dual fan Challenger OC card, this card mainly adds a different backplate improved cooling and sleeker aesthetics. Pricing was not announced, but we would assume it would slot in at around $400 USD, considering the price of their 5600XT Challenger Pro they launched last month.
