The Dual-X cooler featured in the latest SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 500 Series cards is an all-new design. Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs. These feature dual ball bearing fans, which have an 85% longer lifespan than sleeve bearings in our tests.


Intelligent Fan Control III


Enjoy complete silence under light workloads with entirely passive cooling. No spinning fans means no distractions while you work or chill.



Traditional fan may have up to 10% difference on fan RPM from fan to fan at the same fan duty cycle. Now with the new fan controller on the SAPPHIRE NITRO+, this tolerance is reduced to 3.2%. This improvement on the accuracy ensures the cooling and noise performance of every card is up to the standard.



With NITRO+ models, SAPPHIRE has upped the stakes with its new Fan Check system. To resolve a specific fan issue, SAPPHIRE’s Quick Connect System provides a quick and easy solution. If there’s a fan issue detected, the user doesn’t need to return the entire card.


The Graphics card is more than just another component; it’s the beating heart of your gaming system. With tasteful shroud design augmented by RGB LEDs', each card is practically a piece of art.

Check out our NITRO Glow Tutorial on SAPPHIRE Nation showing you how to make the most of the  feature.

You can even change the colours of the LED, for your own customized design using the new SAPPHIRE TriXX NITRO Glow utility. There are five different modes including Fan Speed, GPU Temperature or the colourful rainbow modes. LEDs can also be turned off.

200,000 hour capacitors

High-polymer, aluminum capacitors offering outstanding reliability.

Tough Metal Backplate

The all-aluminum backplate provides additional rigidity that guarantees nothing bends and dust stays out. It also helps cool your card by increasing heat dissipation.

Beautiful and Stylish

With sleek, elegant contours and unique styling these cards have been designed to suit any build.


Cherry-Picked GPUs, Limited Edition Cores; the Best Cooling Technologies and More


Provides rigidity and helps cool your card by increasing heat dissipation.


Built on the future-proof Polaris architecture, the NITRO Gaming Series Graphics Cards+ play games at a smooth 1080p and beyond.

VR Friendly

The SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards come with Dual HDMI ports, specifically designed to work with VR.


Innovative cooling technologies to ensure optimal performance and airflow.

Beautiful Design


On the cooling module, heatsink is stamped to the shape of the MOSFET with high thermal conductivity pad to take away the heat efficiently. On the backplate, same idea is also implemented around the back side of the MOSFET area.

The Beauty of HDR

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.

Enhanced Sync Technology

Liquid-smooth gameplay, more accessible than ever before

Put an end to screen tearing and enjoy fluid, artifact-free gaming. AMD FreeSync™ seamlessly matches your monitor's refresh rate with your RX VEGA 64's framerate.
