SAPPHIRE PULSE Graphics Card RADEON RX VEGA 56

Key features:

  • Factory overclocked to 1512 MHz boost clock
  • Efficient dual-fan cooling
  • Stylish PULSE backplate and radiator shroud design


January 23rd, 2018 – SAPPHIRE Technology is expanding its PULSE Graphics Cards Series with the SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX Vega 56 model. To get the best value, the PULSE edition of the RX Vega 56 has been designed with a strong focus on core features that matter most for gamers – power and cooling.

High-end gaming with Vega 56 GPU


The base of the new SAPPHIRE PULSE graphics card is a powerful Radeon RX Vega 56 chip featuring 3584 Stream Processors running with a factory-overclocked 1512 MHz Boost Clock. 8 GB of 2nd generation High Bandwidth Memory is clocked at 800 MHz (1600 Mbps Effective). Using a switch on the top of the card the user can choose a second UEFI BIOS with an efficiency preset, resulting in slightly lower clocks but also lower temperatures and power draw resulting in a quieter cooling.

Dual-X cooling


To effectively cool a factory-overclocked GPU, SAPPHIRE is using a large heatsink with a copper base and a set of four 8 mm heatpipes. The card’s heatsink actually extends past the short PCB for an increased heat dissipation area. A robust cooling module is also applied to the VRM section, with separate heatsink units connected by a single 6 mm heatpipe and aluminum base. There is also a high thermal conductivity pad on the backplate. Two efficient dual-ball bearing fans spin at a nominal speed of up to 1650 RPM, maintaining a great airflow and quiet operation. Intelligent Fan Control III system ensures the fans start precisely at 55 degrees Celsius, providing a passive, noiseless cooling in idle. 


Thanks to SAPPHIRE Quick Connect 2 system, the fans are easily detachable for cleaning or swapping.


Original PULSE Design & Quality


The SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX Vega 56 is a cohesively designed product, with the fan shroud, the aluminum backplate and the back heatsink frame all accentuating the series’ unique style.

 

 

 

Making no compromises on components, the SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX Vega 56 features latest generation of Black Diamond Chokes for reduced coil temperatures and better power efficiency. The external PCI-E power connectors have a fuse protection built into the circuit to better protect the card.


Introducing SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX Vega 56


SAPPHIRE Technology is also announcing the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX VEGA 56. Sporting a core boost clock of 1550 MHz, NITRO Glow RGB LEDs on the back and side and a copper-based main cooling module. The model will come bundled with the NITRO Gear Card Support Bracket.
