As I’ve discussed on our podcast I recently I really like AMD’s 2022 refreshes, not only on the GPU side, but on the CPU side as well. With the GPU market already being crowded adding in three more cards can make things even more confusing, but AMD’s approach makes things easier to understand. Their naming makes it so you know these sit above their previous RX 6000 series cards in the product stack. Being a refresh these new cards are in no way a replacement for your current RX 6000 series card. Its been a year since the original RX 6000 series launch and gamers always want something new and this refresh is sort of like a last hurrah of the RDNA2-based graphics cards.
When it comes to performance the Radeon RX 6750 XT will have a slight performance bump over the Radeon RX 6700 XT (3-8%) and will also compete with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070. Obviously as you can see from our testing the game you are playing will play a big part on what card comes out on top. This bump in performance is thanks to higher clock speeds as well as faster memory. So instead of 384 GB/s of memory bandwidth you are getting 432 GB/s of memory bandwidth. This is going to be a perfect card for 1440p gaming, although you can definitely get away with 4K gaming if you turn some settings down.
When it comes to ASRock’s Radeon RX 6750 XT Phantom Gaming D OC 12GB specifically you are going to get a pretty nice custom card with a slight overclock on the GPU clocks (Boost: 2623 MHz, Game: 2554 MHz), a custom triple-fan cooling solution, and of course some nice RGB lighting. The slight boost in GPU clocks will get you a few more FPS in games than reference-designed cards. The triple-fan cooling solution does a great job keeping the GPU and memory nice and cool without being noticeable at all. On our test bench running our load test the fans were barely audible, and remember during idle the fans turn completely off. As I mentioned earlier ASRock was one of the first to add RGB lighting to their fans on their graphics cards and I really like how this card looks all lit up!
When it comes to pricing ASRock is throwing an $80 premium on this card taking the original $549 MSRP of the Radeon RX 6750 XT and asking $629.99. Is it worth the extra $80? I would say it is a decently fair price for what you are getting considering we’ve seen some custom cards have well over $100 premiums over their MSRP recently. Overall ThinkComputers gives the ASRock Radeon RX 6750 XT Phantom Gaming D OC 12GB Graphics Card a 9 out of 10 score.
– The refresh makes sense for AMD
– Hits that sweet spot for 1440p gaming
– Sleek design with RGB lighting
– Great cooling
– Full-cover metal backplate
– $80 premium over MSRP
