Sapphire Develops a Fanless RX 5700 XT Card for Rack Airflow

Sapphire released the GPRO X070 compute graphics card. This is very much a graphics card, in that it has display outputs, and is based on the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, but there's a twist—it's completely fanless. The card has a large triple-slot heatsink cooling the GPU, which is designed to rely on external airflow in rackmount cases, and probably won't work on its own in a tower case. Sapphire says its applications include render farms, or V-GPUs. The card features an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT that runs at reference clock speeds—1905 MHz max boost, 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory. There's also an "Efficiency Mode" enabled through a secondary BIOS, which runs the GPU at 1750 MHz boost, possibly making the card best suited for crypto-currency mining operations.

Nothing a couple of fans can't fix if you want to use it in a desktop.

I doubt that you can fit 10 cards with 3 slotted heatsink to that 19" case.

a fan would help but no were near as normal as the airflow is force end to end of the card.

That card would be awesome in a mini ITX case since it's kind of a stock deshouded card.

So this is where the 5700 XT goes to die.

I don't see why not, I could fit 8 teslas and 4 100gbit nics in a 19" case.

One can dissipate its heat with just convection alone (assuming an open case). The other is designed to sit behind a couple of Delta fans. Strapping on regular fans wouldn't work because the fin stack has a closed top.

HUH?, nope. more cards setup for mining so less cards for gamers.

Because uck buying and new card to buy a workable cooler for it. So no it's not with that cooler on it unless you really want to pay even more for it.

That's their point I'm sure.

More dedicated server/cryptomining cards = less gaming cards, unless they somehow crank up GPU production (which seems pretty unlikely in current "climate").

Not really. Airflow on this only works from front to rear

Only if you leave the current cooling block on it.

This remainds me of my old Gigabyte Gtx 8600 GTS Silent Pipe 3, you could slap a fan on top of the radiator:

Finally someone whith a pair of eyes :laugh: . There is nothing fanless about it , it just relies on external fans ( spinning at insane RPMs ) , good luck to that poor guy buying this and mounting it in a fanless rig !

Awesome for crypto mining builds. All you need is a few large input in front and a few output fans behind crypto rig to cool 100 or more of these babies. Sapphire go F yourself, I ain't buying anything from you after crypto mining bursts again! Go sell your GPUs to miners!

Sure, a couple of 40MM screamers, unless you want to bend the fins on the top open and add 2x 120MM.
