Cooling Tech

SAPPHIRE uses its Dual-X cooler on the Radeon RX 5600 XT PULSE OC graphics card, which is a dual-fan cooler that is nice and quiet during those all-night gaming sessions -- but also nice and cool, too.

The Dual-X cooling technology SAPPHIRE uses keeps the Navi GPU, GDDR6, and VRMs nice and cool with my testing before the BIOS update resulting in 66C temperatures under 30 minutes of 4K benchmarking on Heaven. But after updating the BIOS the fan curve increases, which doesn't result in much more noise at all -- but reduces those temps to just 58C. Very cool indeed, if you'll pardon the pun.

Not only does SAPPHIRE's in-house Dual-X cooling technology perform well, but the card itself looks great as well.
