In order to protect your card, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ series cards have fuse protection built into the circuit of the external PCI-E power connector to keep the components safe. The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ cards are designed with robust VRM cooling and have a high thermal conductivity pad on the backplate to take away the heat efficiently and effectively. 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. Black Diamond Chokes are cooler and more power efficient than a normal choke.
The NITRO Boost switch increases the boost clock and power limit for higher performance to unleash the gaming performance of the card. SAPPHIRE's Dual-X cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The form of blades means greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs. Now it's easier than ever to connect and use an external Radeon graphics card. With AMD XConnect technology, external GPU enclosures configured with Radeon graphics can easily connect and disconnect to a compatible ultrathin notebook or 2-in 1 over Thunderbolt 3 at any time, just like a USB flash drive! AMD CrossFire technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFire harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance. AMD CrossFire technology ready graphics cards fit practically every budget.
