The Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT Pulse graphics card appears online and gets listed at Overclockers UK. Featuring Sapphire’s Pulse Series design, a more cost-effective custom design compared to the more premium Nitro Series, it comes with a dual-fan cooler, metal backplate and a new colour scheme of black and white with red trim. The Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT Pulse graphics card comes with a more compact 2-PCIe thick form-factor, slimmer and shorter compared to the ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX 5700 Series and ASUS TUF Gaming Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards announced earlier this month.
The shroud design of the Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT Pulse is certainly new compared to the Radeon RX 500 Pulse Series cards with the addition of mesh holes. Specifications of the card’s boost clocks and core clocks are yet to be announced but is expected to be higher than the reference design. The custom-design Radeon RX 5700 XT is also expected to cost more than the reference design with the Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT sitting at £428.99, same as the ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT Dual EVO OC also listed at Overclockers UK. This makes both cards the cheapest custom-design Radeon RX 5700 XT so far having the ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT TUF Gaming 3X OC at £458.99 and the ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX 5700 XT OC at a pricey £529.99.
