Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX Nitro Plus Review

With as much as 495.5 watts of energy throughout {hardware} registration on this single take a look at (3DMark Velocity ​​Method), it’s clear that the NITRO+ card takes full benefit of those triple 8-pin PCIe energy connectors (slot energy didn’t exceed 60 W). And whereas it solely briefly flirted with 500 watts, the cardboard usually drew between 450W and 475W throughout this take a look at.

The Radeon RX 7900 XTX reference card was drawing extra energy than its rated TDP, however Sapphire NITRO+ takes energy draw to the following stage with this 5-minute GPU. Evidently the Navi 31 would not scale very effectively with energy. We have seen positive aspects of 1% – 6% within the few exams introduced above, however they clearly come at a excessive price.

As for the thermals, the cardboard was extraordinarily chilly (and quiet) when operating. I am speaking about load temperatures that hardly contact 60°C, and hotspot temperatures that are not a lot above that. In truth, through the extremely unrealistic state of affairs of operating Furmark for quarter-hour, the very best temperatures recorded have been a 73C hotspot with 61C cores. Now, this was a cool ~17C room, however nonetheless nice.

And no, I did not take a look at the cardboard in numerous instructions with out you asking. Vertical solely on the take a look at bench. And I’ve already despatched it again. Sorry.
