Detailed Look

SAPPHIRE has a smaller box for its mid-range Radeon RX 5500 XT PULSE OC graphics card, but it has the same bragging points to push across: 7nm Navi GPU, GDDR6 memory, FreeSync 2 HDR support, and PCIe 4.0 support.

On the front of the box we have all of that -- the flashy specs and bullet points, with a clear white/purple/black/red style that stands out from the crowd. There aren't any models or guns on this box.

The back is straight up boring, but it does tell you SAPPHIRE is using its Dual-X cooling tech, with dual ball bearing fans and quick connect fans.

From the front of the card you can see there are no RGB LEDs lighting it up, that's just the LEDs from the motherboard making it green.

Up a little closer we also have the BIOS switch to the right.
