Sapphire teases their RX 6800 XT Nitro graphics card

Last week, AMD revealed its RX 6000 series of graphics cards, showcasing performance levels which brought the company back into the high-end graphics market with a modernised feature set, competitive performance and staggering performance/efficiency gains over their older Radeon products. 

Today, Sapphire has started to tease their first custom Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card, the Nitro. Below we can see an image of a large triple-fan heatsink, and what appears to be a new fan blade design from the company. 

Custom Radeon RX 6800 series graphics cards are due to release later this month from some manufacturers, offering users unique heatsink designs, factory overclocks and other custom features. Sapphire’s Nitro designs have often been considered amongst the best when it comes to custom Radeon models, making Sapphire’s RDNA 2 offerings something to keep an eye on if you are considering an upgrade to AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture. 

AMD is due to launch their RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT on November 18th, though it is likely that this launch will be restricted to AMD’s reference design. At this time, we have not confirmed the availability dates of custom RDNA 2/Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card. Let’s hope that everything will be revealed soon.
