Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 470 Nitro+ 8GB GDDR5 PCI-E Graphics Card

Dual-X Cooling
SAPPHIRE's acclaimed Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs. These feature dual ball bearing fans, which have an 85% longer lifespan than sleeve bearings in our tests. The improvements to the fan blades means the solution is up to 10% quieter than the previous generation.

The new NITRO Boost switch increases the boost clock and power limit for higher performance to unleash the gaming performance of the card. Planning to overclock or looking for maximum performance? SAPPHRE NITRO cards come with an 8 pin power connector to plug in and enable Nitro Boost.

Black Diamond 4th Chokes 
Our Black Diamond Chokes are 10% cooler and 25% more power efficient than a normal choke - and these Mark 4 Chokes reduce the coil temperatures by other 15% over the Mark 3s. These exclusive chokes will maintain gaming stability using their built-in heatsinks and help minimize coil whine.

Fan Check 
Fan Check allows users to check the cooler’s status and immediately contact customer support through Fan Service in case of problems.

The graphics card is more than another component; it’s the beating heart of your gaming system. It should look as good as it costs. With tasteful shroud design augmented by RGB LEDs, each card is practically a piece of art. You can even change the colors of the LED, for your own customized design. This can be controlled via software using the latest version of SAPPHIRE’s Award Winning Overclocking Utility - TriXX 3.0, or through hardware by pressing the red button on the back of your SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series card. Users can choose from a set of five different modes including Fan Speed Mode, PCB Temperature Mode or the colorful rainbow mode. If you prefer, LEDs can also be turned off.
