Copper And Sapphire Unite On This Overclocked RX 5700 XT
Sapphire Shows Off Some New TriXX
Sapphire’s Radeon RX 5700 XT Pulse features a custom-design PCB, with a copper base plate and dual fans to cool the GPU. That inspired them to boost the base clock from 1605MHz to 1670Mz and the Boost from 1755MHz to 1815MHz, though the left the memory frequency unchanged. There is a $10 charge for this, which is quite reasonable for a card with a custom cooler on it.
Overall, when compared directly to the NVIDIA RTX 2060 SUPER, the RX 5700 XT edges it out in almost every game. Once board partners start to roll out custom cards, I feel the RX 5700 lineup will look even better. For now, even though it does beat the competition at this price point, you need to consider if the blower cooler will bother you. That seems to be the biggest complaint I've seen in user reviews for the VEGA cards and this uses the same cooler, just with a new faceplate attached.
