    Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX Vega56 8G HBM2 Graphics Card Product Description



    The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX VEGA 56 8G Limited Edition graphics card is the new highly anticipated high-end graphics card from the SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series family. The NITRO+ Radeon RX VEGA 56 Limited Edition card brings out the best of AMD's VEGA architecture with factory-overclocked performance and an advanced custom cooling solution enshrouded in a captivating design. To drive the most demanding scenarios in gaming, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX VEGA 56 card comes factory-overclocked. The NITRO+ RX VEGA 56 model features a GPU with 3584 Stream Processors clocked in Boost at 1572 MHz. It comes equipped with two stacks of 2nd generation High Bandwidth Memory, featuring 8 GB in total. The memory is clocked at 800 MHz - 1800 MHz Effective. With these clocks, the NITRO+ RX VEGA 56 achieves up to 7% better framerate compared to reference cards.





    Vapor Chamber-based Cooling

    To get the operational temperatures of the GPUs down to the targeted 70°C, SAPPHIRE has brought back its innovative vapor chamber technology made famous through SAPPHIRE's Vapor-X series of graphics cards. Using this instead of the copper base on the GPU and HBM2 memory has lowered temperatures by up to 5°C. The vapor chamber is combined with a set of six nickel-plated heatpipes (three 8 mm and three 6 mm) and a substantial, densely-packed heatsink.


    Turbine-X system

    An original SAPPHIRE-designed PCB includes the brand-new Turbine-X system that can control up to two external PWM fans mounted inside the PC's chassis. A dedicated hardware controller on the card intelligently adjusts the speed of connected fans based on the reads from five thermal sensors included on the PCB to improve the system's overall airflow



    SAPPHIRE NITRO Gear Card Support Bracket

    With these NITRO + RX Vega Limited Editions, SAPPHIRE is including a useful accessory: the SAPPHIRE NITRO Gear Card Support Bracket. This elegant, black nickel-plated and heat-treated tool helps stabilize and maintain the correct position of longer graphics cards to prevent PCI-Express slot damage or PCB bending. Thanks to its smart mechanical design, the bracket doesn't require any additional space and only touches the card by a movable knob with a rubber, soft top.
