In September, Sapphire unveiled its most powerful graphics card to date - the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 5700 XT - which delivers amazing 4K and 1440p performance, but also features very advanced RGB customization options. We even created a set of SAPPHIRE ARGB Fans specifically for this card (sold separately), so you could illuminate your system even more. Since then, many of you have asked if we could include the ARGB Fans with the card itself. oday we are ready and excited to announce the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 5700 XT SPECIAL EDITION! Not only does it include the SAPPHIRE ARGB Fans out of the box, but we've increased the card's performance even more.



Key features
  • Impressive 2035 MHz Boost Engine Clock with Memory Overclocked to 14.4 Gbps
  • Fitted with SAPPHIRE ARGB Fans
  • AMD RDNA architecture with factory-overclocked performance and advanced Tri-X custom cooling solution
  • TriXX Software with up to 15% performance increase in popular games with TriXX Boost
  • Extensive card personalization options with NITRO Glow ARGB System
  • Superior PCB and Power designs ensure gamers have Fast and Stable clock speeds
  • SAPPHIRE COOLTECH, DNA and PLUS Technologies
SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 5700 XT SPECIAL EDITION is a great choice for gamers who value unrivaled reliability, powerful high-end performance and enhanced RGB customization. The card features 2560 stream processors running with three clock settings, including a Boost clock of up to 2035 MHz and a Game clock of 1965 MHz. The latest 8 GB of GDDR6 high-speed memory is clocked at 14.4 Gbps Effective with PCI Express 4.0 support.

Beyond ARGB fans and boosted performance, the SPECIAL EDITION has all the great features from the base version, including a triple BIOS switch and SAPPHIRE's custom Tri-X cooling solution with state-of-the-art radiator design and a trio of silent dual ball-bearing fans.

And don't forget about TriXX Software support, which allows you to control RGB illumination, check fan health and - most importantly - use our new TriXX Boost feature. TriXX Boost lets you scale resolutions in games between 70% and 100% and then enhance image quality with RADEON Image Sharpening. You can achieve a performance increase of even 15% with no significant impact on image quality.

The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 5700 XT SPECIAL EDITION starts shipping today and will be available from selected SAPPHIRE e-tailers and retailers worldwide.

Probably another card consuming 50W or 60W more for 2%~3% performance gains.

Buy the cheapest RX 5700XT with a decent cooler and enjoy. Navi is already squeezed from factory, everything else is just trashing the efficiency.

I don't know if you know this but rgb isn't just the rainbow effect,you can pick a unified color scheme from any color you wish.

better yet buy the cheapest 5700 for around $270 as it goes on sale often, and do W1zzard's overclock flash on it, which nets you 1-3% slower than xt... and then fan curve and power settings at max make up another 2%... basically an XT for $270. if you are willing to deal with extra noise anyway
