Sapphire is the primary GPU manufacturer for AMD Radeon graphics cards and so it enjoys some privileges as well. It has recently revealed or says teased their upcoming new RX 6800 XT GPUs on Twitter.
The same flagship GPU from AMD has two series – NITRO+ series and PULSE series. The Radeon RX 6800 XT will feature 72 Compute Units 4608 Stream Processors, and units will be paired along-side 16GB of GDDR6 memory. The card features a 256-bit memory bus and has a clock speed of above 2.0GHz. The game clock will be 2015 MHz while attaining a healthy 2250 MHz for the boost clock.
The 128MB infinity cache helps to further leverage better 4K gaming performance and is built upon the 7nm process, the total board power remains 300W. At $649, this is the perfect RTX 3080 killer and those who are struggling to get an NVIDIA card can genuinely pair an RX 6800 XT with a new Ryzen 5000 series processors to get the best results.
However, both of these custom NITRO+ and PULSE models from Sapphire seem to feature a triple-fan cooling solution with a bulkier design. While the PULSE variant looks to be sleeker and simpler as it will be cheaper, the NITRO+ variant could be the new flagship GPU from Sapphire.
Sapphire is also supposed to bring custom RX 6800 GPUs as well, and we are sure that before the expected November 18th availability date, Sapphire will give more insights about its new GPUs.
