Sapphire is an official AIB (Add In Board) partner for AMD Radeon graphics cards. Gaming world has seen legendary custom coolers for Radeon GPUs from Sapphire such as Nitro, Pulse, Toxic and Atomic. Interestingly, most reliable industry leaker Komachi ENSAKA has informed enormous leak for the past two month. In personal blog, serious stories have been told from insiders about Sapphire releasing Toxic version of RX 5700 XT only and Nitro for both RX 5700 and XT variant. This means, gamers might grab Toxic custom cooled RX 5700 XT to gain amazing 7% plus performance as seen before in 2014 with R9 290X 8GB. On the other hand, Nitro coolers are also fantastic with Dual BIOS mode and monster cooler but only with two cooling fans.
The most effective and remembered was the Toxic versions of R9 280X and R9 290X. They had Tripple Fan design and exceptional industry leading premium coolers. Besides that, R9 280X Toxic was 250MHz faster in clock and 400MHz faster in memory frequency speeds than reference model. Some enthusiasts could reach 2200MHz Core clock frequency by using custom water cooler on RX 5700 XT thanks to Smart Power Play from Igor’s Lab instructions. Looks like the year of 2019 is amazing era of GPU and CPU competition between AMD, Intel and Nvidia.
