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.
With the SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards’ Intelligent Fan Control III, the fan starts precisely at 56 degrees Celsius to smartly balance performance against fan noise.
NITRO Free Flow
We looked at the traditional axial fan design system, and found that the way it circulates the hot air back to the fan inlet resulted in a higher temperature over time. With NITRO Free Flow (NFF) we redesigned the airflow of the entire cooler and board, so that the hot air is expelled through the system fan instead, rapidly dissipating heat.
The new NITRO Boost switch increases the boost clock and power limit for higher performance to unleash the gaming performance of the card.
Planning to overclock or looking for maximum performance? SAPPHRE NITRO cards come with an 8 pin power connector to plug in and enable Nitro Boost.
SAPPHIRE's acclaimed Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs.
These feature dual ball bearing fans, which have an 85% longer lifespan than sleeve bearings in our tests.
The SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards come with Dual HDMI ports, specifically designed to work with VR. By having two HDMI ports, you can have both an HD monitor and cutting-edge VR headset running at the same time.
The ports are HDMI 2.0b, the latest update, with an 18Gbps bandwidth, up to 32 audio channels, and is able to support 4K 50/60 resolutions like 2160P, whilst remaining entirely backwards compatible with older HDMI specifications.
AMD Freesync technology
No stuttering. No tearing. Just gaming.
AMD FreeSync™ technology allows a compatible graphics card and monitor to dynamically change frame rates for the optimum display quality without tearing or stuay.
Freesync uses industry-standard displayport Adaptive-Sync Eliminates screen tearing without all the usual lag and latency
- Synchronizes the refresh rate of a compatible monitor to the frame rate of your content, however much it varies
- Monitor partners are validating with drivers from AMD now
AMD XConnect™ Technology
Plug in and game on with AMD XConnect technology.
Now it’s easier than ever to connect and use an external Radeon™ graphics card. With AMD XConnect™ technology, external GPU enclosures configured with Radeon™ Graphics can easily connect and disconnect to a compatible ultrathin notebook or 2-in 1 over Thunderbolt™ 3 at any time, just like a USB flash drive—a first for external GPUs!
AMD Eyefinity Technology
Multidisplay technology for gaming, productivity and entertainment
We are taking you beyond the boundaries of traditional PC displays. AMD Eyefinity technology expands the traditional limits of desktop computing by multiplying your screen area. With multiple monitors, games become more immersive, workstations become more useful and you become more productive (an average of 42% more productive according to one study).
Take your PC games to the next level of reality and immersion. Most modern games look great on three screens, and only AMD Radeon™ graphics offer you the ability to play across five screens for an eye-popping gaming experience. Other combinations and configurations with up to six screens work too.1 Create your dream display.
Harness the power of multiple GPUs
AMD CrossFire™ technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFire™ harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance.1 AMD CrossFire™ technology ready graphics cards fit practically every budget. With the flexibility to combine two, three or four GPUs, AMD CrossFire™ technology is the perfect solution for those who demand extreme performance.
Introducing AMD LiquidVR
LiquidVR™ is an AMD initiative dedicated to making VR as comfortable and realistic as possible by creating and maintaining what’s known as “presence” — a state of immersive awareness where situations, objects, or characters within the virtual world seem “real.” Guided by close collaboration with key technology partners in the ecosystem, LiquidVR™ uses AMD’s GPU software and hardware sub-systems to tackle the common issues and pitfalls of achieving presence, such as reducing motion-to-photon latency to less than 10 milliseconds. This is a crucial step in addressing the common discomforts, such as motion sickness, that may occur when you turn your head in a virtual world and it takes even a few milliseconds too long for a new perspective to be shown.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a state-of-the-art technology for gamers and cinephiles that care deeply about the display quality of their TV or monitor. Modeled after the acuity of human vision, HDR vastly expands the range of colors and contrast ratios that can be shown by compatible displays. HDR-ready games and movies played on an HDR display appear strikingly sharp, colorful, and vivid, with enhanced contrast and sophisticated nuance compared to even the most stunning SDR content.
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.
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%.
