To continuous streamlining of FinFET 14 nm production process, the latest Polaris GPUs that power SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 cards are even more energy-efficient. This allowed SAPPHIRE to crank up the clocks and reach up to 10% better performance compared to previous series. To add even more headroom for overclocking. Factory overclocked cores of the standard SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 580 run with a 1411 MHzboost clock.
4th generation Graphics Core Next GPUs of the Radeon RX 500 Series feature improved geometry engine, new display engine, increased caches and native asynchronous shaders. Equipped with 2304 GCN-based stream processors, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 is the card to run modern games in 1080p and beyond, as well as deliver premium VR experiences.
In order to protect your card, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ series cards have fuse protection built into the circuit of the external PCI-E power connector to keep the components safe.
Precision fan control
Standard industry fans may have up to 10% difference between their fan rotation cycles (RPM). With the new Fan IC Control on SAPPHIRE NITRO + graphics cards, this differential is reduced to 3%. This 70% improvement on accuracy ensures that cooling and noise performance of every NITRO + card is up to scratch.
Robust VRM Cooling
The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ cards are designed with robust VRM cooling and have a high thermal conductivity pad on the backplate to take away the heat efficiently and effectively.
Black Diamond Choke 4
Our Black Diamond Chokes are 10% cooler and 25% more power efficient than a normal choke - and these Mark 4 Chokes reduce the coil temperatures by other 15% over the Mark 3s.
These exclusive chokes will maintain gaming stability using their built-in heatsinks and help minimize coil whine
Dual Ball Bearing - 1.85X longer life
Dual ball bearings on the fan spindles ensure smooth running and long life and are designed to keep out dust. A quiet cooling solution, Two ball-bearing fan features a high-efficiency blade design.
Long life black polymer cap
High quality aluminum-made long life capacitor is not only to extend the component life time, the product reliability and overclocking ability are also improved. When operational temperatures dropped by 20°C, the product life span is going to be extended up to a factor of ten. In addition, when the operational temperature increased by 20°C, the product life span only decreased by 10%.
Nitro Glow 2
The graphics card is more than another component; it’s the beating heart of your gaming system. It should look as good as it costs. With tasteful shroud design augmented by RGB LEDs, each card is practically a piece of art. You can even change the colours of the LED, for your own customized design. This can be controlled via software using the latest version of SAPPHIRE’s Award Winning Overclocking Utility – TriXX 3.0. Users can choose from a set of five different modes including Fan Speed Mode, PCB Temperature Mode or the colourful rainbow mode. If you prefer, LEDs can also be turned off.
With NITRO+ models, SAPPHIRE has upped the stakes with its new Fan Check, which allows users to check the cooler's status via SAPPHIRE TriXX 3.0 software, and contact customer support in case of problems.
NITRO Quick Connect
SAPPHIRE’s Quick Connect System provides a quick and easy solution. If there’s a fan issue detected, the user doesn’t need to return the entire card – SAPPHIRE’s partners will send out a replacement fan directly to the customer or the retailer. Please contact your place of purchase to request a fan replacement. SAPPHIRE’s channel partner will arrange the ideal solution for you to receive your replacement fan.
