Product Overview The NITRO+ Radeon RX VEGA 64 card brings out the best of AMD’s VEGA architecture with factory-overclocked performance and an advanced custom cooling solution enshrouded in a captivating design. Enter the world of extreme gaming with high resolution, high refresh-rate displays and virtual reality headsets that you’ve always dreamed of. The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX VEGA 64 card comes factory-overclocked, achieving up to 7% better framerate compared to reference cards.

Vapor Chamber-based Cooling
To get the operational temperatures of the GPUs down to the targeted 70°C, SAPPHIRE has brought back its innovative vapor chamber technology made famous through SAPPHIRE's Vapor-X series of graphics cards. Using this instead of the copper base on the GPU and HBM2 memory has lowered temperatures by up to 5°C. The vapor chamber is combined with a set of six nickel-plated heatpipes (three 8 mm and three 6 mm) and a substantial, densely-packed heatsink.

Turbine-X system
An original SAPPHIRE-designed PCB includes the brand-new Turbine-X system that can control up to two external PWM fans mounted inside the PC's chassis. A dedicated hardware controller on the card intelligently adjusts the speed of connected fans based on the reads from five thermal sensors included on the PCB to improve the system's overall airflow

RGB LED Shroud Backlight
The NITRO Glow system has been significantly expanded and improved in SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX Vega 64 and 56 Limited Edition models. The iconic black NITRO shroud has been augmented with two backlit acrylic elements around the left and right fan. Along with the SAPPHIRE logo at the top, these backlights are full-RGB LEDs and can be customized using an upcoming version of SAPPHIRE's TriXX software tool.

A solid backplate also features a new design with a translucent SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series emblem enhanced by a RGB LED backlight.

SAPPHIRE NITRO Gear Card Support Bracket
With these NITRO + RX Vega Limited Editions, SAPPHIRE is including a useful accessory: the SAPPHIRE NITRO Gear Card Support Bracket. This elegant, black nickel-plated and heat-treated tool helps stabilize and maintain the correct position of longer graphics cards to prevent PCI-Express slot damage or PCB bending. Thanks to its smart mechanical design, the bracket doesn't require any additional space and only touches the card by a movable knob with a rubber, soft top.

Fan Check
With NITRO+ models, SAPPHIRE has upped the stakes with its new Fan Check, which allows users to check the cooler's status via SAPPHIRE TriXX 3.0 software, and contact customer support in case of problems.

NITRO Quick Connect
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 - SAPPHIRE's partners will send out a replacement fan directly to the customer or the retailer. Please contact your place of purchase to request a fan replacement. SAPPHIRE's channel partner will arrange the ideal solution for you to receive your replacement fan.

NITRO CoolTech
With the SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards' Intelligent Fan Control III, the fan starts precisely at 56 degrees Celsius to smartly balance performance against fan noise.

NITRO Free Flow
We looked at the traditional axial fan design system, and found that the way it circulates the hot air back to the fan inlet resulted in a higher temperature over time. With NITRO Free Flow (NFF) we redesigned the airflow of the entire cooler and board, so that the hot air is expelled through the system fan instead, rapidly dissipating heat.

Black Diamond Chokes 4
Our Black Diamond Chokes are 10% cooler and 25% more power efficient than a normal choke - and these Mark 4 Chokes reduce the coil temperatures by other 15% over the Mark 3s.

These exclusive chokes will maintain gaming stability using their built-in heatsinks and help minimize coil whine.

VR Friendly
The SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards come with Dual HDMI ports, specifically designed to work with VR. By having two HDMI ports, you can have both an HD monitor and cutting-edge VR headset running at the same time.

The ports are HDMI 2.0b, the latest update, with an 18Gbps bandwidth, up to 32 audio channels, and is able to support 4K 50/60 resolutions like 2160P, whilst remaining entirely backwards compatible with older HDMI specifications.

Dual BIOS
This product supports both Legacy and UEFI BIOS. By factory default, the card itself is under Legacy mode. By pressing the button with SAPPHIRE logo, UEFI mode will be easily enabled.

Secure boot
Sapphire product with "Dual Firmware Support" function equips the UEFI firmware that is digitally signed and approved by Microsoft for Secure Boot. With Windows8's secured boot architecture and its establishment of a root of trust, the customer is protected from malicious code executing in the boot path by ensuring that only signed, certified "known good" code and boot loaders can execute before the opening system itself loads.

Faster boot and resume times
When compare to the legacy BIOS, system with UEFI has a much faster boot and resume time to the OS.

Frame Rate Target Control
Frame Rate Target Control (FRTC) enables users to set a target maximum frame rate when playing an application in full screen mode; the benefit being that FRTC can reduce GPU power consumption (great for games running at frame rates much higher than the display refresh rate) and therefore reduce heat generation and fan speeds/noise on the graphics card.
Frame Rate Target Control caps performance not only in 3D rendered in-game scenes, but also in splash screens, loading screens and menus, where frame rates can often run needlessly into the hundreds of FPS. Users might wish to set a very high cap just to limit wasteful FPS like that seen in menus and such, while still taking advantage of the responsiveness given by FPS well beyond 60.

DirectX® 12
DirectX® 12 is a new, "console-like" graphics API from Microsoft® that empowers game developers with more direct and obvious control of PC hardware. This direct or "explicit" control better exposes the hardware resources of AMD Radeon™ GPUs to yield higher hardware throughput and, ultimately, more performance for users. To put it simply: much more efficient hardware through smarter software! At the discretion of a game developer, this superior efficiency can be spent on higher framerates, lower latency (VR), lower power consumption, better image quality, or some calculated balance of all four. In any scenario, gamers stand to benefit greatly from choosing AMD hardware to run their favorite DirectX® 12 game.

AMD Freesync technology - No stuttering. No tearing. Just gaming.
AMD FreeSync™ technology allows a compatible graphics card and monitor to dynamically change frame rates for the optimum display quality without tearing or stuay.

Industry-Standard Displayport
Freesync uses industry-standard displayport Adaptive-Sync Eliminates screen tearing without all the usual lag and latency

Synchronizes the refresh rate of a compatible monitor to the frame rate of your content, however much it varies
Monitor partners are validating with drivers from AMD now

AMD XConnect™ Technology - Plug in and game on with AMD XConnect technology.
Now it's easier than ever to connect and use an external Radeon™ graphics card. With AMD XConnect™ technology, external GPU enclosures configured with Radeon™ Graphics can easily connect and disconnect to a compatible ultrathin notebook or 2-in 1 over Thunderbolt™ 3 at any time, just like a USB flash drive-a first for external GPUs!

AMD Eyefinity Technology - Multidisplay technology for gaming, productivity and entertainment
We are taking you beyond the boundaries of traditional PC displays. AMD Eyefinity technology expands the traditional limits of desktop computing by multiplying your screen area. With multiple monitors, games become more immersive, workstations become more useful and you become more productive (an average of 42% more productive according to one study).

Take your PC games to the next level of reality and immersion. Most modern games look great on three screens, and only AMD Radeon™ graphics offer you the ability to play across five screens for an eye-popping gaming experience. Other combinations and configurations with up to six screens work too.1 Create your dream display.

Introducing AMD LiquidVR
LiquidVR™ is an AMD initiative dedicated to making VR as comfortable and realistic as possible by creating and maintaining what's known as "presence" - a state of immersive awareness where situations, objects, or characters within the virtual world seem "real." Guided by close collaboration with key technology partners in the ecosystem, LiquidVR™ uses AMD's GPU software and hardware sub-systems to tackle the common issues and pitfalls of achieving presence, such as reducing motion-to-photon latency to less than 10 milliseconds. This is a crucial step in addressing the common discomforts, such as motion sickness, that may occur when you turn your head in a virtual world and it takes even a few milliseconds too long for a new perspective to be shown.

Virtual Super Resolution
Virtual Super Resolution (VSR) is an AMD feature that is game and engine agnostic to simulate Super-Sampling Anti-Aliasing (SSAA) in games that do not have native SSAA support. VSR can also be used in conjunction with other native in-game anti-aliasing for even more game graphics-setting control. VSR allows games to render at higher resolutions (up to 4K; see the 'Virtual Super Resolution Support' table, below) and then rescales them down to a lower native display resolution. Using this, you can get quality that rivals up to 4K, even on a 1080p display while playing your favorite games.

HDR Ready
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.

High Bandwidth Memory
Introducing HBM2, a new type of memory chip with low power consumption, ultra-wide communication lanes and a revolutionary new stacked configuration. HBM's vertical stacking and fast information transfer open the door for truly exciting performance in innovative form factors. And GPU applications are just the start - look for HBM's superior power efficiency and space savings to spark industry-wide innovation.

Fuse protection
In order to protect your card, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ series cards have fuse protection built into the circuit of the external PCI-E power connector to keep the components safe.

Precision fan control
Standard industry fans may have up to 10% difference between their fan rotation cycles (RPM). With the new Fan IC Control on SAPPHIRE NITRO + graphics cards, this differential is reduced to 3%. This 70% improvement on accuracy ensures that cooling and noise performance of every NITRO + card is up to scratch.

Robust VRM Cooling

Reviews
8GB Sapphire AMD RX VEGA 64 Nitro+ Dual HDMI Dual DP Graphics Card is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I upgraded to this from an old Radeon HD6950 and this is a massive step up. I primarily use this for gaming and have had it for a couple of weeks now to test it out. I was surprised that even the older games I play such as Final Fantasy XI have improved graphics with the Vega 64. Textures are improved and so too are the lighting effects in the game, this is running at the same settings in 4k as the 6950 (which also ran it in 4k). The card itself looks amazing and is a beauty to look at in the pc case. It runs very cool and is pretty much silent. The fans do not spool up until it reaches 56'C and in my preferred power saver mode it maintains a temperature of 57-60'C even after 6 hours of intense gaming. When the fans are on they are quieter than my case fans, I can only tell by actually looking under the card to see them spinning. The card comes defaulted on its "over clock" bios and switching the little switch back to the "11" position will change the bios to power saver mode. I have included a set of benchmark runs in the picture section to show the different characteristics in OC mode at different pre-set Wattman profiles. As stated earlier considering the minor performance differences between the profiles, I just stick to power saver profile. On the "11" bios mode powers saver mode drops the power consumption limit to 157 W (180 W power saver OC mode) The Adrenalin software that comes with the card is also amazing allowing you to set frame rate caps and I especially like the "Chill" feature which dynamically adjusts frame rates (between limits you set) depending upon what you are doing. This makes the card very efficient and nothing like the "space heater" comments a lot of people on miscellaneous forums have said. This card is huge and takes up 4 expansion slots in my case while using the support bracket and it is very long so make sure you have a big enough case for it. I have not tested out the extra GPU fan headers as it runs cool enough for me without using them. I had one issue with the card which I managed to solve. On a couple of occasions after extended gaming sessions stressing the card in Total War: Warhammer 4k, after finishing the game and dropping back to desktop then doing mundane things like Word or YouTube the card lost the ability to display to my monitor. A quick google revealed that this was noting to do with the monitor but a power delivery issue from the PSU. I have a Dark Power Pro 1000W PSU and I had a 1 cable running both 8 pin connectors to the GPU and a 4pin connector to the motherboard. Apparently Vega is temperamental with multiple rail PSU's and can occasionally spike power draws. The solution to this is to make sure each of the 8 pin connectors running the GPU is run from a separate cable. Since swapping my cables around so two cables power the GPU and not one I have not had this issue. I have also noticed the difference since changing this in my benchmarks. With 1 cable powering the GPU, my Warhammer benchmark had points where the fps would spike down. Since swapping to two separate cables these spike now go up. This card also seems to like DX12 over DX11 for the games I have tested and in DX12 it seems to utilize a lot more of the GPU memory.
