Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 Graphics Card Review

It is the second week of August and that means custom Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards are here! It seems there is a lot of hype around these cards, even more than what we saw for NVIDIA’s Super Series cards. Maybe it is because AMD fans have not seem custom cards in quite a while, but whatever the case it is exciting if you are looking to pick up a Radeon RX 5700 series card and have been waiting for custom models. Sapphire is launching their Pulse RX 5700 series today with both 5700 XT and 5700 (non-XT) models. We are taking a look at the Pulse RX 5700, which come in at only $10 more than AMD’s reference card. It features a 12-layer PCB, factory overclock, Sapphire’s Dual-X cooling solution, a full metal backplate, and a dual-BIOS. Let’s take a look and see what this custom Radeon RX 5700 is all about!
