With the SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards’ Intelligent Fan
Control III, the fan starts precisely at 56 degrees Celsius to
smartly balance performance against fan noise.
NITRO Free Flow
We looked at the traditional axial fan design system, and found
that the way it circulates the hot air back to the fan inlet
resulted in a higher temperature over time. With NITRO Free Flow
(NFF) we redesigned the airflow of the entire cooler and board, so
that the hot air is expelled through the system fan instead,
rapidly dissipating heat.
The new NITRO Boost switch increases the boost clock and power
limit for higher performance to unleash the gaming performance of
Planning to overclock or looking for maximum performance? SAPPHRE
NITRO cards come with an 8 pin power connector to plug in and

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 95mm blades mean greater airflow and superior heatsink coverage
at lower noise compared to standard cooling designs.
These feature dual ball bearing fans, which have an 85% longer
lifespan than sleeve bearings in our tests.
The SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming Series cards come with Dual HDMI ports,
specifically designed to work with VR. By having two HDMI ports,
you can have both an HD monitor and cutting-edge VR headset running
at the same time.
The ports are HDMI 2.0b, the latest update, with an 18Gbps
bandwidth, up to 32 audio channels, and is able to support 4K 50/60
resolutions like 2160P, whilst remaining entirely backwards
compatible with older HDMI specifications.
Frame Rate Target Control
Frame Rate Target Control (FRTC) enables users to set a target
maximum frame rate when playing an application in full screen mode;
the benefit being that FRTC can reduce GPU power consumption (great
for games running at frame rates much higher than the display
refresh rate) and therefore reduce heat generation and fan
speeds/noise on the graphics card.
Frame Rate Target Control caps performance not only in 3D rendered
in-game scenes, but also in splash screens, loading screens and
menus, where frame rates can often run needlessly into the hundreds
of FPS. Users might wish to set a very high cap just to limit
wasteful FPS like that seen in menus and such, while still taking
advantage of the responsiveness given by FPS well beyond 60.
DirectX 12 is a new, “console-like” graphics API from Microsoft
that empowers game developers with more direct and obvious control
of PC hardware. This direct or “explicit” control better exposes
the hardware resources of AMD Radeon GPUs to yield higher hardware
throughput and, ultimately, more performance for users. To put it
simply: much more efficient hardware through smarter software! At
the discretion of a game developer, this superior efficiency can be
spent on higher framerates, lower latency (VR), lower power
consumption, better image quality, or some calculated balance of
all four. In any scenario, gamers stand to benefit greatly from
choosing AMD hardware to run their favorite DirectX 12 game.

Introducing AMD LiquidVR
LiquidVR is an AMD initiative dedicated to making VR as comfortable
and realistic as possible by creating and maintaining what’s known
as “presence” — a state of immersive awareness where situations,
objects, or characters within the virtual world seem “real.” Guided
by close collaboration with key technology partners in the
ecosystem, LiquidVR uses AMD’s GPU software and hardware
sub-systems to tackle the common issues and pitfalls of achieving
presence, such as reducing motion-to-photon latency to less than 10
milliseconds. This is a crucial step in addressing the common
discomforts, such as motion sickness, that may occur when you turn
your head in a virtual world and it takes even a few milliseconds
too long for a new perspective to be shown.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a state-of-the-art technology for
gamers and cinephiles that care deeply about the display quality of
their TV or monitor. Modeled after the acuity of human vision, HDR
vastly expands the range of colors and contrast ratios that can be
shown by compatible displays. HDR-ready games and movies played on
an HDR display appear strikingly sharp, colorful, and vivid, with
enhanced contrast and sophisticated nuance compared to even the
most stunning SDR content.
