What customers say about "Features"
Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Pulse 8G 8GB GDDR5 Dual HDMI/DVI-D/Dual DP Graphics Card
  • The software drivers are easily downloaded from AMD which I preferred over using the disc supplied with the card.
  • This is one fantastic graphics card, and one of the best upgrades that you can make to a 2009 Mac Pro.
  • The card runs very quietly in my Mini-ITX case, and the fans do not even spin when just web browsing or on the windows desktop, as the temp remains around 35c.
  • The card is solidly built, including study shroud and backplate. A good weight, not so heavy that it sags, but the heat-sink is big enough to cool it effectively.
  • The fans run at maximum and loud from the beginning.
Sapphire Radeon RX 580 NITRO+ 8G GDDR5 DUAL HDMI / DVI-D / DUAL DP with backplate (UEFI) PCI-E Graphics Card
  • So far, no issues. Easy to install, drivers were straight from the AMD website.
  • The included fans can be easily swapped out which is another bonus - fan failure doesn't mean card failure.
  • The fans on the card come on during higher temperatures, so card stay cool and pretty quiet.
  • This card runs so much cooler and quieter it really does make all the difference.
  • I get a driver issue so I formatted and reinstalled windows and even tried Linux but all did the same.

Sapphire Radeon RX 580 NITRO+ 8G GDDR5 DUAL HDMI / DVI-D / DUAL DP with backplate (UEFI) PCI-E Graphics Card
  • Good connections, it does take both a 6 pin and an 8 pin PCI-E power supply, so make sure you have the right connections.
  • I'm using 2 x Viewsonic 32" Quad HD monitors connected via displayport and all works flawlessly.
  • Installed it within minutes and only needed to connect and update graphics drivers to get it working.
  • The resolution is excellent and it runs the two Dell UltraSharp U2713HM. It still has power and ports for 2 more of them.
  • All the various displayport were lined up correctly out of the back.
