SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon™ RX 580 8GD5

SAPPHIRE Pulse is all about providing PC users with choice and great value for money. Starting with the SAPPHIRE Pulse Radeon RX 580, this factory-overclocked model is dedicated to customers who seek a powerful, future-proof card that plays modern titles at maximum fidelity in 1440p @ 60 FPS. The card features a Polaris GPU with 2304 4th generation of Graphics Core Next stream processors, boost-clocked at 1366 MHz, and 8 GB of VRAM . The industry proven SAPPHIRE Dual-X system serves as the cooling solution, with dual ball-bearing fans and the SAPPHIRE Quick Connect feature for easy cleaning and replacement.

 

Frame Rate Target Control

Frame Rate Target Control (FRTC) enables users to set a target maximum frame rate when playing an application in full screen mode; the benefit being that FRTC can reduce GPU power consumption (great for games running at frame rates much higher than the display refresh rate) and therefore reduce heat generation and fan speeds/noise on the graphics card.

Frame Rate Target Control caps performance not only in 3D rendered in-game scenes, but also in splash screens, loading screens and menus, where frame rates can often run needlessly into the hundreds of FPS. Users might wish to set a very high cap just to limit wasteful FPS like that seen in menus and such, while still taking advantage of the responsiveness given by FPS well beyond 60.

 

DirectX® 12

DirectX® 12 is a new, "console-like" graphics API from Microsoft® that empowers game developers with more direct and obvious control of PC hardware. This direct or "explicit" control better exposes the hardware resources of AMD Radeon™ GPUs to yield higher hardware throughput and, ultimately, more performance for users. To put it simply: much more efficient hardware through smarter software! At the discretion of a game developer, this superior efficiency can be spent on higher framerates, lower latency (VR), lower power consumption, better image quality, or some calculated balance of all four. In any scenario, gamers stand to benefit greatly from choosing AMD hardware to run their favorite DirectX® 12 game.

 

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.

 

Industry-Standard Displayport

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.

 

AMD Crossfire™  

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.   

 

 

HDR Ready 

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.

 

 

Fuse protection

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.

 

Robust VRM Cooling

The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ cards are designed with robust VRM cooling and have a high thermal conductivity pad on the backplate to take away the heat efficiently and effectively.


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%.

Beast

26 June 2018
This thing destroys any game I throw at it at 1920x1080 ultra/maxed @60fps++. Running alongside a Ryzen 5 1600, 8GB ram, 500w psu. Upgraded from a GTX 1050TI 4GB well worth the upgrade. Some people are scared of the wattage it uses but I've found it to be a lot less than advertised.

Great value for money

21 August 2019
For 1080p gaming, this card will basically run everything maxed out at 60fps. Haven't had any issues with overheating (unlike the RX580 from other manufacturers) and doesn't draw a whole heap of power considering its performance.

Also works well for video and photo editing, however, I haven't tested it extensively yet.

Definitely worth looking at as an alternative to whatever expensive Nvidia alternative you have in mind!

Good Price, Better performance

30 March 2019
Really good deal since it comes with 2 free games. Works well @ 1080p most games at ultra will push more than 60fps. No cons at the moment, bought it today!

Great Card

13 July 2018
After my research of this and comparing it to the gtx 1060 I can say that this is the better card in actual use. Great performance. I only have 8 gigs of ram right now but even with that bottleneck it still performs great so anyone with 16 gigs or so could really let this thing fly

Work horse

23 June 2018
HI everyone so after using this card for a while now time to give my two cents worth so here goes.
Getting the New rx 580 home the first thing that took my notice was the stylish case ,very cool.
In terms of physical size this is a reasonably large card so make sure you have the room to fix this one in.
Having changed out from my old faithful r9 I did take note that this only uses an 8pin connector so right off the bat I can tell the power consumption with be far superior to that of my older card. So make sure you have adequate connections from the power supply before purchase
I have paired this with an i7-4790(non k) cpu so it's an older...

Very good card, worth the

23 May 2018
Very good card, though it might be best to wait until GPU prices have dropped this is still definitely a good price to performance. It delivers everything I need and when I get a VR headset it comes with dual HDMI slots for VR specifically. If you are buying for VR this is also quite a good option. I have used the card for nearly a month now and I have had no dissapointments
