Out of ASRock’s 30 graphics cards in the Radeon RX 6000 (RDNA2) series, the RX 6600 Challenger is the sole design that incorporates a white aesthetic. Although later designs like Taichi White and Steel Legend were introduced, they were exclusively part of the RX 7000 lineup.
The first white variant in the RDNA2 lineup is introduced through the RX 6600 Challenger D graphics card, which was initially exclusively offered in black. Notably, both versions have the same specifications, including AMD reference clocks of up to 2491 MHz and a memory speed of 14 Gbps. The primary specifications include a Navi 23 GPU with 1792 Stream Processors and 8GB GDDR6 memory, all connected via a 128-bit bus.
This graphics card is designed as a dual-slot model and incorporates a single 8-pin power connector, delivering the necessary power in alignment with AMD’s specifications, which stipulate 132 watts. Interestingly, the backplate design exposes that the PCB is notably smaller compared to the dual-cooling system, leaving one of the fans fully visible.
The RX 6600 non-XT was first introduced in October 2021, indicating that this launch comes nearly two years after the initial introduction of this SKU. Although it’s unclear whether this model will eventually expand into the RX 7600 series, it’s evident that ASRock has acknowledged the demand for white graphics cards and may continue to offer them in greater quantities.
