On the look out for a new GPU that fits your small form factor PC? Well, the RX 5500 XT from ASRock could be your best bet. Packing 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM running at 14 Gbps and a Navi 14 GPU that clocks up to 1,845 MHz, then RX 5500 XT Challenger ITX 8G should outperform those GDDR6 GTX 1650 refreshes.
Alex Alderson,

Offering 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a Navi 14 GPU in a mini-ITX form factor, the ASRock Radeon RX 5500 XT Challenger ITX 8G will pack a punch despite its diminutive size. Measuring 190 x 139 x 42 mm, the Challenger ITX is a dual-slot card and has a 10 cm fan.

Running on a 128-bit bus, ASRock has clocked the Challenger ITX at 14 Gbps on its VRAM and 1,607 MHz on its GPU core. The latter can boost up to 1,845 MHz, though. ASRock has included three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors and one HDMI 2.0b port, too.

The Challenger ITX has a 130 W TDP and requires an 8-pin 12 V ATX PCIe power connector to keep it ticking over. Digital Foundry has already demonstrated how well even the 4 GB RX 5500 XT fares against the GTX 1650 SUPER, like the PowerColor edition. ASRock is yet to announce pricing or availability, but the Challenger ITX could prove a solid option for those who are looking for a small form factor GPU capable of solid 1080p gaming.
