SAPPHIRE launched its new Radeon RX 5700 XT PULSE OC graphics card today, one of the first custom Navi cards to be released and a kick ass offering for Radeon gamers. You can read my review on it here.
The new SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 5700 XT PULSE OC has more performance than the reference RX 5700 XT, runs significantly cooler (16C cooler in my testing), and much quieter than the reference model. It offers performance roughly 5-10% better than NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, and all for $409.
SAPPHIRE also includes a new feature in TriXX Boost, which reduces the rendering resolution and upscales it using Radeon Image Sharpening resulting in up to 10-15% more performance in games.
The Navi 10 GPU in question has a boost clock of up to 1750MHz, as well as 8GB of GDDR6 memory. The Dual-X cooler and its dual 92mm fans keep the card operating at anywhere between 68-72C in my testing, depending on the resolution, game, and load of the card.
Compared to the 84C+ of the reference card, I'd say this is a gigantic win for SAPPHIRE -- this is why it won TweakTown's Editors Choice Award.
