Sappphire Radeon RX 570 Nitro+ 8192MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
The Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 570 8G with semi-passive Dual X cooler reached a base clock of 1.244 MHz, boosting up to 1.340 MHz when required. The 8 GB GDDR5 VRAM is clocked at 3.500 MHz (7.000 MHz) and is conncted to the GPU via a 256-Bit memory interface. An 8-Pin power connector supplies the 26 cm long graphics card with the required power and a power supply capable of delivering 500 Watts is recommended.
In order to cool the graphics card effectively, Sapphire utilises a cooler with two fans and an additional backplate. LED lighting is also included. The special feature of this is the semi-passive dual-fan cooler with removable fans. Removing just one screw allows the fan to be removed for cleaning. In the rare instance of a problem with the fan it can then be sent in separately, without having to send in the whole graphics card.

The AMD Radeon RX 570 (8 GB) in Detail
The Radeon RX 570 is AMD's premium HD gaming graphics card from the RX 500 graphics card series and is especially attractive for price-conscious gamers or owners of FreeSync monitors. The Polaris 20 graphics chip utilised in the RX 570 series is a "refresh" of the Polaris 10 architecture used in the RX 470 and offers the same number of shaders as its predecessor, 2.048 to be specific. Thanks to optimisations in the manufacturing process the Radeon RX 570 brings higher maximum boost clocks than its equivalents in the RX 400 series.
Based on AMD's fourth-gen GCN architecture and manufactured in the 14 nm FinFET-LPP process, the Radeon RX 570 also has a very low TDP of just 120 Watt. This has been made possible through huge technological leaps in control-, power saving and clock-rate technologies, and the contrast in power usage between this card and its preceding models such as the Radeon R9 390 (250 Watt TDP) makes for a noticeable improvement.
The 4th-gen Graphics Core Next architecture (GCN 1.3) introduces features such as a command processor, a geometry processor, new multimedia cores, an optimised display engine as well as an improved memory controller. Some of the supported technologies include Async Compute, Vulkan, DirectX 12 and AMD's FreeSync technology.
Monitors can be connected to the graphics card via DVI-D, Display-Port or HDMI. EyeFinity technology enables up to four monitors to be connected in a multi-display setup. The HDMI connector utilises HDMI 2.0b to allow playback of 4K/UHD resolution multimedia at 60 Hz and offers HDCP 2.2 for sending and receiving encrypted signals.
In order for the card to reach its maximum potential, new drivers should be downloaded and installed at regular intervals from the AMD or Sapphire websites.
