SAPPHIRE's new Radeon RX 5700 XT PULSE OC runs 16C cooler than the reference RX 5700 XT, wow!

AMD released its new Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards over a month ago now, offering up reference models of the Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 (my review on those here) with custom cards coming in a month later.


SAPPHIRE is the first out of the gate with a custom Navi graphics card in the Radeon RX 5700 XT PULSE OC, fueling Team Red fans with its first toe dipped into the custom RX 5700 series world. I'm hoping for a TOXIC variant from SAPPHIRE in a new custom RX 5700 XT, something that was teased in May 2019 as a custom watercooled Navi graphics card.

Until then, the new Radeon RX 5700 XT PULSE OC is the best we have from SAPPHIRE and a nice upgrade on the reference AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT in many ways. The custom cooler looks great, it runs cooler than the reference RX 5700 XT, has overclocking potential, and operates nice and quietly, too.

The world has been patiently waiting for custom Navi graphics cards, and we're off to a pretty exciting start with SAPPHIRE. If you were going to buy a Radeon RX 5700 XT and had to buy one today, then you would definitely want the PULSE OC on your radar.


SAPPHIRE is charging just $10 more than the reference Radeon RX 5700 XT, so you'd be silly to not grab this versus the hotter, slightly slower reference model from AMD at $409.
