SAPPHIRE Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 available at Caseking for only 469,- Euro | Including Games Bundle | Advertorial

Graphics card prices have returned to a much normal after the mining boom over the past few months. This means a wide range of model availability at extremely attractive prices with immediate availability. One of these offers has recently also been offered by Caseking: The SAPPHIRE Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 is available for an unbeatable 469,- Euro. It includes an extensive game package as well as a SAPPHIRE NITRO Gear card holder. This additionally stabilizes the graphics card and keeps it in the correct position, so that there is no damage to the PCI Express slot or deformation of the board.

This is the Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 with 8192 MB HBM2 graphics memory
The Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 is an enormously powerful high-end graphics card. It is perfect for playing in 4K resolution and also allows you to immerse yourself in virtual reality. For gamers, Radeon RX Vega graphics cards are especially interesting in combination with a FreeSync monitor, as such a team conjures up jerk-free images without tearing effects on the screen! As with reference design, Sapphire relies on High Bandwith Memory (HBM) in the second generation – the hitherto fast memory technology on the market.

The 8 GB HBM2 memory clocks at 800 MHz and are connected to the graphics chip (GPU) via a 2048-bit memory interface. One of the special features of HBM memory is the placement directly in the GPU die and not soldered on the board as usual. The graphics chip itself clocks on the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 at 1,266 MHz and can clock up to 1,550 MHz in boost mode if required. Thanks to the 14-phase power supply with three 8-pin power connections, the OC potential of the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 is particularly high. The graphics card has two different UEFI bios configurations with which silent and standard operation can be set. This changes the clock rates of the GPU and, depending on this, the speeds of the three fans, which also switch off completely at low load.

The better the graphics chip is cooled, the longer it can maintain the boost clock. For the cooling of the graphics card, a semi-passive cooler design is used, which consists of several heatpipes, two large cooling blocks made of aluminium slats and three large fans. The fans rotate in different running directions for particularly effective cooling and can be changed without tools by the Quick Connect system in the event of a defect. The backplate provides increased stability of the PCB and the configurable RGB LED lighting gives the card a stylish look.

The features of the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56:

  • Semi-passive cooler design with 3 fans
  • 8GB High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM2)
  • 56 Next-Gen Compute Units (NCUs; 3,584 Shaders)
  • BIOS Switch with Silent, Standard and OC-BIOS
  • Base Clock: 1,266
  • Boost Clock: 1,550 MHz
  • High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)
  • Rapid Packed Math (RPM) of NCUs
  • New Programmable Geometry Pipeline
  • Enhanced Pixel Engine

High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)
The High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC) enables a much more effective use of high bandwidth memory (HBM) memory compared to the Fiji GPUs, where this particular type of memory was used for the first time. The HBC controller enables very efficient storage control and increases the minimum frames per second (FPS) by up to 100 percent in many games and the maximum FPS by more than 50 percent.

Next-Gen Compute Unit (NCU) & Rapid Packed Math (RPM)
Rapid Packed Math (RPM) is a feature of the Next-Gen Compute Unit (NCU) and uses the very flexible core structure of the new computing units. For example, RPM accelerates FP16 calculations, which makes it faster to calculate processes based on mathematics. With RPM enabled, the number of calculations performed is doubled per second without consuming more resources. Especially physics calculations, as they are done in large explosions in some games, benefit from Rapid Packed Math.

Enhanced Pixel Engine
The term Enhanced Pixel Engine conceals an optimized design of the shader units, which greatly improves performance in high resolutions (WQHD, UHD) and the display of virtual reality (VR). Specifically, the Enhanced Pixel Engine is a new rasterizer technology that optimizes cache localization and makes rendering processes more efficient.

And for all non-gamers there is the NPGP: New Programmable Geometry Pipeline
The new programmable geometry pipeline of the Vega architecture easily processes millions of polygons thanks to its efficient load distribution. Modeling applications (CAD software) in particular benefit from this and can render large 3D models in near real time.

How fast is the SAPPHIRE Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56?

Some time ago we tested the slower Sapphire RX Vega 56 Pulse and made a clear purchase recommendation. The Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56, on the other hand, has a stronger cooler with free fans and can thus maintain the high computing power and high clock rates for longer even in hot weather.
