RX 6800 XT Nitro+ and Pulse: Sapphire’s Visible Cards!

RX 6800 XT Nitro+ and Pulse: Sapphire’s Visible Cards!


At the beginning of the week, we were talking to you about a teaser concerning the RX 6800 XT Pulse from Sapphire. Please note that the map is now visible, for this, we can thank VideoCardz. In addition, images of the RX 6800 XT Nitro+ are also visible!

Finally, the teaser released by the brand showed us enough. Indeed, the images on the card did not surprise us since we do find a heatsink with three fans. The same, the hull is covered with red borders specific to the Pulse series. Likewise, the backplate is marked “Sapphire Pulse” and “RADEON” with a red electroencephalogram.



Furthermore, what the teaser did not show was the size of the PCB, which is shorter than the cooling system. The latter is about 80% of the total length of the heatsink. A feature also shared by the Nitro+.

Another interesting point: the connector system proposed on this model. The brand equips its board with three DisplayPort outputs and an HDMI connector. For the power supply, we would have, a priori, a duo of 8-pin PCIe.



RX 6800 XT Nitro+: the card finally shows up!



Sapphire RX 6800 XT Nitro+For the blow, this Nitro+ model takes again largely the recipe inaugurated for the Pulse model. The card also has a large heatsink with three fans. As you can see, the central mill will be smaller than the two others, placed at the ends of the card. The same applies to the shape of the blades, which means that they will not rotate in the same direction.



Next to that, the card has a sober design with a fairing mixing different shades of grey. Once again, pay attention to the size of this model, as you can see, the card proves to be imposing and takes up three expansion slots.



Remember that this is the “Special Edition” of the RX 6800 XT Nitro+. It is recognisable by its RGB fans. The same goes for its connections, which are slightly different as it has two DisplayPorts and the unique HDMI, as well as a USB Type C. The classic Nitro+ offers the same outputs as the Pulse model.



Unfortunately, the frequencies of the two cards are still unknown. For that, we will have to wait until the launch. Same for the prices, although we suspect that these custom versions will be more expensive than the AMD reference cards. Finally, the Nitro+ is more premium than the Pulse.
