The Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX Vega 56 Limited Edition 8GB HBM2 with Tri-X dual ball bearing fans and Vapor Chamber cooling bears a name almost as long as the card itself. There are some interesting physical features, such as easily removable Tri-X dual ball bearing fans for cleaning and the ability to connect case fans to your card. The improved cooler design is not able to defeat the overclocking limits which both Vega cards seem to have, however it does ensure very quiet operation which may be a more attractive benefit to some users. Drop by Overclockers Club for performance details.
"To make sure that this card performs well under a load, Sapphire slapped a massive Vapor Chamber-based cooling solution on the card. The combination of Sapphire's Tri-X dual ball bearing fans and Vapor Chamber cooling solution make this card one of the coolest running cards I have tested, both stock and overclocked. What makes this cooling performance that much more impressive is that the power consumed by the card is in excess of 300 watts stock and overclocked. Impressive indeed."
