THE BEAUTY OF HDR
Featuring a brand new display engine, the Radeon™ RX 480 graphics card is ready to power the new generation of HDR displays, content and the future of gaming. Modeled after the acuity of human vision, HDR vastly expands the range of colors and contrast ratios that can be shown by compatible displays.
NEW DUAL-X COOLING
SAPPHIRE's acclaimed Dual-X Cooling is powered by two massive yet silent fans and state-of-the-art radiator design. The new form of our 95 mm blades means greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs. With NITRO Free Flow, we’ve redesigned the airflow of the entire card and board, so that the hot air is expelled through the system fan instead, rapidly dissipating heat.
FREEING THE FLOW
In traditional graphics cards cooling design, some of the hot air hits the side case of the chassis and bounces back to the fan inlet, increasing the working temperature over time. Now with the NITRO Free Flow, that hot air is pushed out through the vents on the backplate, reducing the bounce back effects to minimum.

repelling Lower noise Airfoil section blades
Two 95 mm fans with advanced airfoil section blades provide more powerful yet quieter cooling versus smaller standard fans. With dust-repelling dual ball bearings, Dual-X offers exceptional reliability.
FAN CHECK SYSTEM
With NITRO+ models, SAPPHIRE has upped the stakes with its new Fan Check, which allows users to check the cooler’s status via SAPPHIRE TriXX 3.0 software, and contact customer support in case of problems.
To resolve a specific fan issue, SAPPHIRE’s Quick Connect System provides a quick and easy solution. If there’s a fan issue detected, the user doesn’t need to return the entire card – SAPPHIRE’s partners will send out a replacement fan directly to the customer or the retailer. Please contact your place of purchase to request a fan replacement. SAPPHIRE’s channel partner will arrange the ideal solution for you to receive your replacement fan.
Intelligent Fan Control III
Zero dB Cooling
Enjoy complete silence under light workloads with entirely passive cooling. No spinning fans means no distractions while you work or chill.
NITRO Cool Tech
With the new NITRO Cool Tech you can set precise start and stop temperatures for your card’s fans, to smartly balance performance against fan noise.
The graphics card is more than just 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 colours of the LED, for your own customized design. This can be controlled via software using the latest version of SAPPHIRE’s Overclocking Utility TriXX 3.0, or through hardware by pressing the red button on the back of your SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series card. You can choose from a set of five different modes including Fan Speed Mode, GPU Temperature Mode or the colourful rainbow mode. If you prefer, LEDs can also be turned off.
