Evolution is here! The 14nm Polaris manufacturing technology shifts the limits of efficiency, performance and size. The AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics card in the non-reference SAPPHIRE NITRO + is a hot novelty.
Built on the future-proof Polaris architecture, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 OC 4GB graphics card plays your favourites at a smooth 1080p and beyond, from the latest eSports games and MOBAs to the most popular, graphically-intensive AAA titles. The evolution of the FinFET 14 process has allowed the new RX 500 Series to achieve higher clocks versus previous generations and overall better performance. The SAPPHIRE NITRO + Radeon RX 580 OC graphics card can reach up to 1411MHz. Thanks to the GDDR5 memory, it is also one of the most popular models for cryptocurrency mining.
The impressive and immersive experiences of the virtual reality (VR), have so far been the prerogative of expensive high-end cards. The Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 is fully VR-ready, so you can embark on virtual adventures knowing that your experience will be smooth, wonderfully immersive and entirely stress free. With 4GB of DDR5 memory and a computing power of more than 5 TFLOPS, it can easily match the NVIDIA's Pascal core, which is twice as expensive. Premium VR doesn't need to expensive!
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. In addition to upgraded HDMI 2.0 supporting 4K resolution while keeping at 60 frames per second, you will find 2 new DisplayPort 1.2a connectors. This enhanced interface can handle up to 5K (5120×2880) or 8K (7680×4320) resolution while keeping at 60 frames per second. The AMD FreeSync seamlessly matches your monitor's refresh rate with your RX 580's framerate. The Polaris architecture assures great performance in the games of today and tomorrow thanks to the asynchronous shaders and an enhanced geometry engine.
The Dual-X cooler featured in the latest SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 500 Series cards is an all-new design. The fin surface area is doubled and an efficient combination of 2x8mm and 2x6mm copper heatpipes is used. As a result, both the noise level and temperatures are down compared to the previous generation. The Intelligent Fan Control III allows for an automatic fan speed regulation and due to the Quick Connect function, it is now easier than ever to replace the fans when necessary.
