Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT Review: Cooler and Quieter Than AMD’s Reference Card

Performance Results: 2560 x 1440

Sapphire’s Pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT is generally a little faster than AMD’s reference version thanks to a 3%-higher Game clock rate. This means that all the performance observations we made in our launch coverage apply here as well. These cards are perfect for gaming at 2560 x 1440. They’re also ample for 1920 x 1080, though we don’t think you need to spend $400+ for smooth frame rates at that resolution.

Expect average frame rates just over 10% higher from Sapphire’s Pulse Radeon RX 5700 XT than Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2060 Super.
