Sapphire Pulse RX 5500 XT Review: Is 4 GB VRAM Enough?

We’ll be taking a slight detour in our testing today to help shed some light on this. Instead of comparing similar cards performance which we typically do. We’ll be testing a Sapphire Pulse 4 GB and comparing it to a Gigabyte Gaming OC 8 GB RX 5500 XT to see what impact, if any, having only 4 GB of VRAM may have on gaming. Since these cards are physically wired at PCIe x8 We’ll also testing PCIe 4.0 against PCIe 3.0 performance to see if opening up the PCIe bandwidth has any impact on the results.

Sapphire R9 380x Nitro Video Card Review

Just in time for the Holiday season, AMD is releasing another card in their 3xx series to help fill in their lineup. Fill in their lineup you say?

Even though they have several cards in their current lineup, from top to bottom, budget to rare unicorn, there was a fairly large performance and price gap between the R9 380 and R9 390. In comes the AMD R9 380X. The card is marketed towards being a great gaming GPU for 1080p (1920×1080) and entry level for 1440p (2560×1440).

Sapphire HD 6450 FleX Edition Review

Anything with passive cooling generally makes me shudder, but when it comes to my HTPC setup, small and quiet hardware is of the utmost importance. The Sapphire HD 6450 FleX Edition is already the least expensive Eyefinity solution on the market, but how flexible is this card really?
