Computex 2018 - SAPPHIRE is one of the only AIB partners that released a custom Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card, but their flagship RX Vega 64 NITRO+ used an insane 3 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors which was truly over the top.

At Computex this year, the company was showing off a new refreshed version of the RX Vega 64 NITRO+ that has just 2 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors, losing an entire 8-pin PCIe power connector in the process.

I've asked for a sample of this refreshed version, which should be in the GPU review labs in the coming weeks.
