Sapphire, one of AMD’s most important partners when it comes to the best graphics card brand for gaming, has added a new variant of the Radeon RX 5600 XT. This is a new mid-range Sapphire graphics card based on Navi architecture at 7nm (RDNA) announced by AMD at CES 2020.
Sapphire Pulse RX 5600 XT BE joins the Pulse RX 5600 XT already present in the catalog, all with a decidedly more compact design which, unlike similar solutions, does not sacrifice the cooling system.
The graphics card for a computer is designed for SFF (Small Form Factor) systems, measures 230.5 x 122.5 x 40.1mm, and features a dual-slot design. Despite this feature, we find a dual-fan heatsink and support for Sapphire CoolTech proprietary technology on board, a feature that allows you to customize the rotation speed according to user needs. There are four modes: Intelligent Fan Control, Precision Fan Control, Robust VRM Cooling, and Dual-X Cooling Technology.
To optimize temperatures we also find a backplate which, together with other measures (Power Design, Free Flow, and TriXX Boost), makes this Radeon 5600 XT model also ideal for overclocking.
Sapphire Pulse AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT BE 6GB GDDR6 GPU has been priced at $279.99 and is now available to buy via the Newegg.com online store, a figure that honestly we can not consider just mid-range.
