Avant-Garde NITRO+ Features

The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6700 XT Graphics Card is decked out with the new Hybrid Fan Blade design, which combines the key strengths of the traditional axial fan and blower fan. It amalgamates the quietness of a traditional axial fan design with the strong air pressure of a blower fan design to achieve up to 5.5% better improvement in the downward air pressure through the fan while keeping the fan noise at a minimum compared to previous generations.

The original NITRO+ Free Flow feature has been enhanced into a modern Wave Fin Design coupled with an innovative V Shape Fin Design for GPU Cooling. When the wind goes into the fin module, the new Wave Fin Design reduces the friction in order to reduce the wind cut noise resulting in a lower decibel gaming experience. The V Shape Fin Design on top of the GPU also accelerates and centralizes the airflow around the GPU to dissipate heat efficiently to produce lower thermal temperatures.

The unique Integrated Cooling Module is an advanced combined Memory & VRM Cooling Module that actively cools the memory, MOFSET and chokes. 


Exceptional Tri-X Cooling Solution

The primary cooling solution on the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6700 XT Graphics Card is SAPPHIRE’s award-winning Tri-X Cooling Solution. Two larger fans and one smaller fan spin in opposite directions to power the Tri-X Cooling Solution, which boosts wind flow beneath the fans. The tunneled fins on the fans assist in increasing airflow convection to ensure that Tri-X cooling maintains a low temperature and noise. With an 11 Phase Digital Power Design, the NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6700 XT Graphics Card balances the distribution and thermal dissipation to harness the full power of AMD’s groundbreaking RDNA™ 2 gaming architecture.

High Caliber Components for Durability

The notable Intelligent Fan Control feature enables light workloads to run using passive cooling for complete silence. Combined with the Precision Fan Control feature, which reduces fan rotation cycle differential, the fan IC control on the graphics card ensures that the cooling and noise performance of the card creates a silent and crisp gaming experience.

The new fan design features Dual Ball Bearing Fans, which provide an up to 85% longer lifespan than regular sleeve bearing fans and an upscale increase in silence. A longstanding favourite feature of gamers, the SAPPHIRE Quick Connect Fan is a quick solution with just one screw holding the fans securely in place to enable simple and easy cleaning to keep dust out of the graphics card.

Each card is designed with a Dual BIOS where you can choose between performance mode and silent mode to enhance your gaming experience. Using the TriXX Software BIOS Switch, gamers can effortlessly switch from performance mode to silent mode and back using our TriXX software for a quick and easy shift between the dual BIOS modes. 

The Secondary, or Silent setting reduces clock targets and raises target temperatures to allow for potentially quieter operation.


Enhance the Battle Station Aesthetic

The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6700 XT Graphics Card is adorned with an ARGB LED shroud design along with an intricate ARGB backplate where you can customize the different LED colours using the SAPPHIRE TriXX Software. Choose from various different modes including Fan Speed Mode, PCB Temperature Mode or the colourful rainbow mode, or turn off the LEDs to fully tailor the graphics card to suit any build.

Enable the external synchronization of RGB LEDs between the graphics card and the motherboard through the 3-pin header in the tail of the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6700XT Graphics Card. Gamers can elect if the graphics card performs the RGB LED effects independently or if the motherboard acquires control.


PULSE: The Heart. The Beat. The Game.  

SAPPHIRE Technology also launches the SAPPHIRE PULSE AMD Radeon™ RX 6700 XT Graphics Card providing PC users with an engaging gaming experience and great value for money. 

SAPPHIRE PULSE AMD Radeon™ RX 6700 XT, 12GB, AMD RDNA™ 2

The PULSE AMD Radeon™ RX 6700 XT Graphics Card headlines with 2560 stream processors running with a Boost Clock of up to 2581 MHz and a Game Clock of up to 2424 MHz. The latest 12GB of GDDR6 high-speed memory clocked at 16 Gbps Effective with 96 MB of Infinity Cache, which dramatically reduces latency and power consumption, delivering higher overall gaming performance than traditional architectural designs. It also provides up to 4 output ports including 1 x HDMI 2.1 VRR and FRL and 3x Display Port 1.4 with DSC outputs to support the latest display monitors in the market.

The SAPPHIRE PULSE AMD Radeon™ RX 6700 XT Graphics Card runs on the powerful Dual-X Cooling Technology coupled with Intelligent Fan Control to keep temperatures low and fan noise low. The refined PCB design delivers stable, reliable, and steady performance, which efficiently lowers PCB temperature and component signal noise. To protect the graphics card, the Fuse Protection feature is engineered into the circuit of the external PCIe® power connector to preserve the components.

TriXX Boost

Maximize the performance of the NITRO+ and PULSE AMD Radeon™ RX 6700 XT Graphics Cards with our SAPPHIRE TriXX Software. TriXX Boost increases your FPS by slightly decreasing resolution through the TriXX software that is then adjusted through Radeon™ Image Sharpening for an incredible boost. Choose from a customizable resolution scale or from additional custom resolutions based on user input for a much more fine-grained control over the quality vs. performance tradeoff.
