Sapphire officially announces their RX Vega Nitro+ series of graphics cards

Sapphire has been teasing their RX Vega Nitro + for quite some time now, showcasing more power inputs than any other aftermarket Vega graphics card on the market. 

When compared to AMD’s reference RX Vega graphics cards, there is very little that goes unchanged here.  From the Nitro+’s 3x 6+2-pin PCIe power connectors, the GPU’s new triple fan RGB cooler and backplate designs, the card’s alternative display outputs and the highest base and boost GPU clock speeds that we have ever seen on an AMD RX Vega graphics card. 

The Vega Nitro + will release with RX Vega 56 and 64 counterparts, each of which offers a significant clock speed advantage over AMD’s reference models. It is worth noting however that some of AMD’s recent GPU drivers have problems when trying to run this GPU at higher than reference clock speeds, which is something that AMD should be addressing with upcoming Radeon Software releases.  

With Sapphire’s factory overclocks we can see that the HBM2 memory speeds of each GPU have been untouched, suggesting that AMD has prevented their AIBs from adjusting these clock speeds.

The Sapphire RX Vega Nitro+ will ship with a GPU support bracket out of the box to prevent GPU sag, something that is very helpful given the sheer size and mass of this graphics card. 

With this generation, Sapphire is bringing back some fan-favourite features from their Polaris series GPUs as well as some new additions like their new “Turbine-X” fan system that allows the RX Vega Nitro to power and control up to two PWM fans inside your PC. The RX Vega Nitro+ also offers an RGB illuminated cooler, which provides lighting on the card’s Sapphire Logo, Backplate and around two of the GPU’s three fans. 

The GPU’s RGB lighting can be controlled manually, set to default blue, A rainbow setting or allow the card’s lighting adjust itself according to PCB temperature or fan speeds. Sapphire has also revived their Nitro Quick Connect fan technology, which will enable users to replace dead fans without an expensive RMA.

The Vega Nitro+ offers a non-standard display output configuration, offering two HDMI 2.0 connections and dual DisplayPort 1.4 connections. 

Sapphire states that the GPU is cooled using a Vapour chamber and contains a dual bios switch to offer users additional redundancy. Sadly Sapphire does not showcase this GPU’s full dimensions of this colossal graphics cards on their product page.
