As far as custom RX 5700 XT's go, Sapphire's NITRO+ edition has been one of the best so far but there are still more improvements to come. Today, the Sapphire RX 5700 XT NITRO+ Special Edition has been announced, bringing impressive boost clock speeds, overclocked memory and ARGB fans.
With the Nitro+ Special Edition, Sapphire has boosted performance by a further six percent, with 14.4Gbps overclocked memory and a bigger 2035MHz boost clock for the GPU. You can get even more of a performance increase using Sapphire Trixx Boost, which can have an impressive impact and seems to deliver superior visual results compared to something like Nvidia's DLSS.
The Tri-X cooling solution found on the card is engineered to deliver low temperatures, minimum noise and maximum reliability. The GPU should hold under 75°C while running 13 dBA quieter than a standard RX 5700 XT- it will look nicer too thanks to the new ARGB fans. It also has an 8+1+2 phase digital power design, unlocking some extra overclocking room to really push the RDNA architecture to its limits.
The Sapphire NITRO+ RX 5700 XT Special Edition is already available at retailers across the US and Europe, including Overclockers UK. Over here, pricing is £439.99 at the time of publishing.
