Really hot 5/27/2020 2:35:23 AM

Pros: This card is a beast and it can easily reach 270 frame rate on games and the graphics are really good for the price.

Overall Review: Overall it is a good card just runs like hell with high temps

Great GPU! 5/25/2020 1:31:26 PM

Pros: - RGB Lighting
- Relatively quiet fans
- Great build and form factor

Overall Review: Bought this upgrade for Half Life Alyx. Mobo can't support OC, but plan to upgrade that and processor along the way. Was a bit pricey though/.

I had no issues with drivers.

Black screen reboots galore. 5/24/2020 10:20:38 AM

Pros: Pretty and powerful when it wasn't crashing.

Cons: I tried everything to make this GPU stable then the RGB stopped working on the card, just as well because I draw the line on nerfing my processor and RAM on the off chance that the GPU will not crash.
Was it the GPU?
Well, lucky for me I held on to my 1070 ti, Zero issues, and trouble-free gaming.

Overall Review: I really wanted to roll all AMD, but if AMD does not get a handle on these deal-breaking problems BIg Navi is a no go for me and I'll have to bite the bullet and go with the competition.

Great card better than 2060 super and 2070 and as fast as a 2070 super 5/24/2020 1:23:32 AM

Pros: Fast, runs well, could be a little less hot but just mess with fan curve. Looks beautiful.

Cons: Heat can get up to 85 at the highest ive seen if playing high demanding games for long period of time. but not for too long.

Overall Review: with overall fan curve change playing in the 70s is the usual or sometimes even less.

Best RX 5700 XT on the market 5/18/2020 2:10:47 AM

Pros: Wow this card is a beast! If you're looking for the best RX 5700 XT on the market than you can stop looking now because this is it. I spent 3 months researching 5700 XT's and the consensus by most professional and amateur reviewers is the Nitro + and Nitro + SE (this card) are the best in just about every way so it was a no brainer for me. I now can say that they are all correct. First, it's definitely the coolest looking. It's got a lot of style, sleek looking. I really like the black and grey theme. I also like the programmable RBG lights. They're not over the top (maybe a little for some) and the brightness is adjustable and can even be turned off if you prefer. I don't have any RGB strips in my case, the RBG in my MSI X470 Gaming Pro Carbon plus the ones on this card alone just enough to show off the components in my case and give my build some style without looking overwhelming. I don't want aircraft flying over my house mistaking it for a landing strip. Sapphire's has always made high quality graphics cards. You can really tell the difference when you hold one in your hands and look at it close up. They're certainly heavier than any other GPU I've held and I have yet to see any visible imperfections. This tells you one thing, quality materials and craftsmanship. I also own a Sapphire Pulse RX 580 and 590 and they are of similar quality. As for the driver issues, I've been using version 20.2.2 as was recommended by many and I've had very little issues so far. Occasionally there will be a slight stutter when I'm gaming at 2K or 4K. It's slightly more noticeable at 4K but even then it's minor and infrequent enough not to annoy me or affect my gaming. I'm sure AMD will work out most of the bugs in future releases. I get about 95 fps at 2K and close to 70 fps at 4K with games graphics settings either all at max or close to it on AAA titles. Of course it varies a bit depending on the game. Frame rates are also very stable and steady. The temps are very reasonable for an RX 5700 XT. It usually takes a tops out around 72 degrees C to 78 degrees C with it's massive heatsink while gaming. AMD say the max acceptable operation temp is 90 degrees C so I'm happy with that.

Cons: Slight stuttering occasionally (due to current driver issues), price is high (but still worth it imo). This is like the Ferrari of 5700.XT's. Sapphire does not have a phone number you can call for support. The only way you can contact them is by mail. This is the only con that bothers me. If you do have any issues you have to email them and ask wait at least a day, probably more just to receive a response. When working out technical issues there's usually lots of back and forth between the customer and tech person which means it could potentially take several days or even longer to resolve any issues that could have been resolved in a 20 minute phone call.

Overall Review: So far I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I'm very happy I bought this card and if you are looking for the best, I highly recommend it. If I had to choose a new GPU all over again, I would not hesitate to buy this card again.

Great Performance, can't use more than 3 monitors despite the 4 ports 5/15/2020 10:42:45 AM

Pros: Runs great, destroys games, at 2020 clock I'm still running in the 60s, was easy to install and is exactly what I expected besides 1 thing (kind of a biggie for me)

I really REALLY want to give this 5 stars because it performs so well despite my 'little' problem - see below

**Edit: Newegg has helped me come up with a great solution for replacing the card that allows me to have a working computer while awaiting a replacement card. I hope to bump this to 5 stars once the replacement arrives and I've got all 4 monitors running! Thanks again Newegg!

Cons: I use 4 monitors. If I have 4 monitors plugged in it won't boot into Windows, If I try to plug the 4th monitor in after booting into windows it hard crashes, no BSOD, nothing in event viewer, nothing that hints at what is causing this issue (3 work fine in any combination of ports).

on a side not- I upgraded from an R9 Fury Nano, and it handled my setup perfectly.

Overall Review: Happy with performance, but not being able to use that 4th port is a killer (any combination causes crash, 2 DP/1 HDMI or 2 HDMI/1 DP)

I have hunted the net and found no others with this issue, so you probably won't have my problem.

I still recommend the card, I seem to be the only person on Earth with this problem and jeez is it frustrating.

Nice card 5/14/2020 8:53:09 PM

Pros: Bought this card January and have had no problems so far. Runs Doom eternal 1440 and averages 143.8 fps. I'm having no problems with the radeon software. I paired the card with a Ryzen 3700x on a x570 motherboard. Works well and I hope it stays that way.

Cons: Nothing yet.

Overall Review: This is a great choice if you're looking for good fps per $$. I wanted an all AMD build and this was one of the best RX 5700xt cards out there. You can tweak the fan curves pretty easily using the radeon software. And there's the Sapphire TRIXX software where you can change between bios on the card. Plenty of stuff to play with if that's your bag. Me I just set it and forget it.
