Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 8GB GDDR6 Now Available on Amazon

A few days ago, we posted an article about the Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700 XT Gaming OC getting listed on Amazon. Recently, another custom designed Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 gets listed online. Both the Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT and Pulse RX 5700 8GB GDDR6 are now available to (pre) order on Amazon here and here. Sapphire’s Pulse variant of the RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 got several positive reviews from different media outlet who got their hands on the respective graphics cards. They perform similarly, if not slightly better compared to AMD’s reference blower style design. The main advantage of these custom design is that they run (much) cooler and more silent compared to the reference blower design. So, is it worth it to buy the Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 XT or Pulse RX 5700 over the reference design despite having a tad higher price tag? In my opinion, yes! Unless you plan to water cool the graphics card. You’ll definitely have to buy the reference design if that is the case. Check out more details regarding Sapphire’s Pulse RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 graphics cards below.

The Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT Graphics Card

Let’s talk about the Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT first, as this is going to be the more interesting graphics card between the two, in my opinion. This graphics card is geared towards 1440p gaming and competes with NVIDIA RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super graphics cards. The RX 5700 XT is generally faster than an RTX 2060 Super, while it’s a bit slower compared to the RTX 2070 Super. However, in terms of price to performance or value, the RX 5700 XT beats both RTX Super cards.

The Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 XT sports a boost clock speed of up to 1925MHz; has 2560 Steam processors and 8GB of GDDR6 on a 256bit memory interface. It features Sapphire’s Dual-X cooling technology; it’s basically a dual fan cooling solution with a decent sized aluminum heat sink for the GPU, VRAM and VRM components. It also features Sapphire’s Quick Connect Fan, Dual Bios Support and Power Fuse.

Of course, like any other RX 5700 XT, the Sapphire Pulse is also loaded with all the features and technology that comes with AMD’s new RDNA architecture.

The Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 8GB Graphics Card

The Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 8GB basically shares the same cooling design with the Pulse RX 5700 XT. They both have the same cooler design and Sapphire’s Dual-X cooling technology. The main difference is the GPU itself. The Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 features a boost clock speed of up to 1750MHz, 2304 Steam Processors and 8GB GDDR6 memory. Of course, this one is going to be cheaper but slower compared to the RX 5700 XT.

You can check out the rest of their features and specifications from the table below.

Both the Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 8GB are now available to (pre) order on Amazon.
