Radeon RX VEGA 56 Pulse 8GB HBM2 PCI-Express Graphics Card (11276-02-40G)

The base of the new SAPPHIRE PULSE graphics card is a powerful Radeon RX Vega 56 chip featuring 3584 Stream Processors running with a factory-overclocked 1512 MHz Boost Clock. 8 GB of 2nd generation High Bandwidth Memory is clocked at 800 MHz (1600 Mbps Effective). Using a switch on the top of the card the user can choose a second UEFI BIOS with an efficiency preset, resulting in slightly lower clocks but also lower temperatures and power draw resulting in a quieter cooling.

To effectively cool a factory-overclocked GPU, SAPPHIRE is using a large heatsink with a copper base and a set of four 8 mm heatpipes. The card’s heatsink actually extends past the short PCB for an increased heat dissipation area. A robust cooling module is also applied to the VRM section, with separate heatsink units connected by a single 6 mm heatpipe and aluminum base. There is also a high thermal conductivity pad on the backplate. Two efficient dual-ball bearing fans spin at a nominal speed of up to 1650 RPM, maintaining a great airflow and quiet operation. Intelligent Fan Control III system ensures the fans start precisely at 55 degrees Celsius, providing a passive, noiseless cooling in idle.

The SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX Vega 56 is a cohesively designed product, with the fan shroud, the aluminum backplate and the back heatsink frame all accentuating the series’ unique style.

Making no compromises on components, the SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX Vega 56 features latest generation of Black Diamond Chokes for reduced coil temperatures and better power efficiency. The external PCI-E power connectors have a fuse protection built into the circuit to better protect the card.

I regret nothing

Actually surprisingly efficient, doesn't go above 180 while running heaven for me, and that's before an undervolt
Power connectors are in a bit of an awkward spot and could get in the way of the LED if you don't managed to take it over the top
Looks decent when you see it up front
can keep under 75 degrees at just 1600rpm (at least after the undervolt and overclock)
also a very good upgrade from the rx 480, great for 1080p144 gaming
also it's quite thick and practically made of heatsink, which a nice backplate design

blown away

Well lets juust say very happy with purchase and 3 games, parks itself just behind the vega 64 and £100 cheaper plus sits between 1070 and 1080 and in some games beats 1080, mine is running silent at 1590mhz straight out box and pretty quite even under load, early dats as only had a day but the upgrade in performance from my strix r9 390 to this is amazing, gone from aircraft carrier to ufo in userbenchmark as one example, why wait for new cards to come out in nedar futuer that will at this price point as i see it keep you in same ball park as for performance at this price point anyway, as for temps well dopwn from r9 390 plus power draw down as well, what is not to like, omly gripe i have is no sapphire sticker in box but overclockers made up for that with free sweetie's, 10/10, rol on metro exodus.

That is it!

That is great graphic card, working with my i3-7350k awesome. 2x more fps after transferring from rx480, nothing more is needed to fullhd, the card is inaudible when using the internet, the fans only turn on when playing a challenging game. It's good to have a fan on the top of the case because the backplate is only on the middle of the card and the hot air heats the interior. the maximum temperature I have observed is 76 degrees in Conan Exiles, but in other games like GTA V, CS: GO, WoT, Need For Speed, PUBG, Rust, the temperature does not exceed 60 degrees.

Great Vega 56 card, huge value

Best Vega 56 card for the money, potentially the best overall. Almost 20 degrees cooler (and thus much quieter) than the Asus Strix 56 I'm replaced with this. Undervolts/overclocks well. Power connectors are in a bit of a non-optimal spot but that's the only negative I see so far (aside from the December 2018 AMD driver release being a bit weird). Also, pleased with the very fast international shipping from Overclockers.

Fantastic performance at 144 fps

Vega is a strange beast, the arcitecture runs hot and its a little power thristy however this can easily be tamed with a little tweaking in AMDs Wattman software (which has just had a major update making it much better than nvidias software).

All Vega cards are basically at the max voltage limits out of the factory which in some cards limits performace and it makes them run hotter, look up a guide to undervolting and you will nto only interest your preformance but also give you room to overclock in a more tradional sense.

My card happily runs between 65-70 degrees C drawing about 180-240Ws (all according to HWinfo), the only minor issue I have with the card is the power pins being in the middle of the unit as the card sports a nano pcb. Figure out a nice way to route your cables if you care about visuals and you will have a great card with amazing price for performance.

Excellent performance with acceptable temperatures

I absolutely love my Pulse. Bought it while it had the special deal where you get 3 free games (future releases) and I am just very happy in general.

The reasons I don't give this a 10:

Unable to control the fans manually. This is super annoying for me, but it's due to Sapphire having "Intelligent fan control" which is written into the BIOS, no programs can override the fan control so you have no way of adjusting the fans or the curve yourself. The only way to do this would be with a BIOS mod and therefore voiding your warranty. The fans kick in at (53C?) and it's not audible really, they can ramp up to 1600RPM, or with the secondary BIOS or 1900 RPM(?) on the primary (slightly audible but nothing major really)

The other small thing I didn't like is that it's very hard to route your cables acceptably, since the 2x 8Pin power is in the middle of the card due to the nano PCB. Therefore most of the ways (depending on your case) but you will cover up the red-lit Pulse logo which is rather annoying.

Other than that as I said, the card demolishes games in 1440p, I have 144Hz FreeSync too and it's just a beauty. Very good value! Card received has Samsung HBM memory so I clocked it to 945Mhz to match the Vega 64 and I get around 10% performance boost (975Mhz works but isn't stable) in combination with the core clock holding 1575-1600Mhz during gaming.
