RX 580 AMD Graphics Card. Sapphire PULSE GPU

AM4 MSI Motherboard
why will you rebel? #radeonrebels

A compact yet powerful GPU, the RX 580 PULSE from Sapphire features 8GB memory and holds a host of intriguing features. Enhanced fuses, Black Diamond chokes and Black Polymer caps all help with your cards protection, while features such as the advanced cooling and Frame Rate Target Control push your gaming experience to its peak, for longer. These are just a few of the RX 580 PULSE’s technologies.

GPU Fuse Protection

AM4 MSI Motherboard
Sapphire motherboard circuit protection

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

Precision Fan Control

AM4 MSI Motherboard
Enhanced Cooling and Noise Performance

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

Robust VRM RX500 Cooling

AM4 MSI Motherboard
More efficient and effective cooling

The SAPPHIRE PULSE cards are designed with robust VRM cooling and have a high thermal conductivity pad on the backplate to take away the heat efficiently and effectively.

Black Diamond Choke 4

AM4 MSI Motherboard
Exclusive chokes for high-quality components

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

Dual Ball Bearing

AM4 MSI Motherboard
1.85X longer life with Sapphire GPU

Dual ball bearings on the fan spindles ensure smooth running and long life and are designed to keep out dust. A quiet cooling solution, Two ball-bearing fan features a high-efficiency blade design.

Black Polymer Graphics Card Caps

AMD Ryzen Feature
Long Life Cap Technology

High quality aluminum-made long life capacitor is not only to extend the component life time, the product reliability and overclocking ability are also improved. When operational temperatures dropped by 20°C, the product life span is going to be extended up to a factor of ten. In addition, when the operational temperature increased by 20°C, the product life span only decreased by 10%.

NITRO Quick Connect

AM4 MSI Motherboard
graphics cards fans easy solution

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.

GPU Frame Rate Target Control

AM4 MSI Motherboard
Enhancing your PC gaming power

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.

8GB Sapphire Radeon RX 580 PULSE, 14nm Polaris, 2304 Streams, 1366MHz GPU, 8000MHz GDDR5, 2xDP/2xHDMI/DVI-D is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and very quiet, Nice styling. Performs as expected. Ordered from Scan on Sunday , delivered Monday. Great Service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant GPU Cannot fault this GPU, powerful and silent, I keep checking my PC to make sure it is on. Temps are at a steady 74/75c, so pleased my daughter Samantha bought it for me. Well packaged and fast delivery from Scan, very professional company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great card purchased this card to replace my old MSI R9-290X that had a damaged HDMI port. This card is so much more silent, i forget it it even in my pc, i haved it paired with a 28 inch samsung 4K monitor and play games in 4K with med/high settings depending on the game, and get between 44-60fps which is pretty good imo considering i have it on an FX-8350 cpu. would gladly suggest this card to anyone wanting to upgrade, it is power efficient, temps for me, have never exceeded 75c and you NEVER hear the fans, which is a plus for me :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High performance, quiet, and low temps I bought this to replace two HD7950s, and the first thing I noticed was just quiet the fans are. Where the dual 7950s would sound like a 747 spooling it's engines up at Heathrow the RX 580 is barely audible above the hum of a water cooled system. The main reason I got this card is to play over Steam Link which doesn't utilize crossfire so I needed a powerful 1080p card and this is the ticket, go into settings - turn everything up to Max and get a steady 60 FPS. It's not quite as fast as 2x HD7950, but at least I don't have to spend HOURS tweaking the few fully X-fire compatible games to run! and holds it's own in the 95% of games that don't run X-fire. Crysis 3 runs 1080p on Ultra at > 75 FPS! The Sapphire Pulse 8GB RX580 is very well made, although the box is somewhat devoid of extras (go for the Nitro+ if you want extras), and this is a highly recommended no nonsense card. with modest overclocking headroom to boot as well.
