  • Very good graphics card loaded with lot of memory and good bus.
  • Runs with me in the silent bios with stable GPU clock speed of 1545 MHz and the 8GB memory.

What customers say about "Features"
Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Pulse 8G 8GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
  • Use with no problems so far and temps and fan sounds are fine.
  • It was running at 80C under load until I adjusted fan speeds from auto to manual. Since then its never gotten warmer than 66C.
  • Adjusting the fan curve to 70% the temperature does not exceed 60 degrees, it is excellent.
  • Colored lines appear randomly and don't stop until a hard reset is done. Very loud fan.
  • It doesn't even reach 60% fan speed when you're overheating with the stock fan curve.
Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Nitro+ 8G Graphics Card
  • Works like a dream, very quiet and brilliant value for money, having no trouble running g any games.
  • Good build quality, perfect fit with dual width GPU.
  • Being able to change the color of the side LEDs (which in my case changes color according to the temperature, so very useful, we know).
  • The card is whisper-quiet, the whole system is almost inaudible. That's great.
  • A bit too noisy personally when the fans go to maximum.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Pulse 8G 8GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
  • Super easy install! Works extremely well and perfectly stable.
  • Easy installation, huge framerate boost for XPlane 11. Huge graphics memory.
  • 2 HDMI and 2 Display Ports and 1 DVI connector all but ensure that you will have the right connections for the next few years.
  • Nice Mid-range GPU, gave me no problems setting up and installing.
  • Easy to install. Screen looks great.
Sapphire Radeon RX 590 Nitro+ 8G Graphics Card
  • Using standard PCI-Express 3.0 x16 host interface. Nothing to complain about.
  • On the rear panel there are five connectors for image output: two DisplayPort, two HDMI and one DVI. As always, good, basic ports.
  • On the rear panel there are as many as five connectors for image output: two DisplayPort, two HDMI and one DVI.
  • Power on the PCI-Express line does not produce the required power on the motherboard.
  • They removed the good old one VGA, so I had to buy an adapter from VGA to HDMI.
