Sapphire becomes the first manufacturer to release a full photo set of its custom RX 480 graphics cards.

Sapphire Radeon RX 480 NITRO

The new pictures reveal two things, the fancy black and silver backplate and.. mysterious button. According to the picture, this button is responsible for switching LED illumination into different modes. It’s unclear if it changes the color, frequency of pulsation or switching from temperature to GPU load mode indicators. However, I’m quite certain that it does have a complete OFF state, as it was revealed during Sapphire Nation podcast.

As for the NITRO itself, more information was revealed over the past few days. The card will operate at 1325 to 1350 MHz frequency as revealed by OCUK employee, it was also go on sale for 249 GP in UK.

The interesting feature of this card are removable fans. This is actually nothing new, but other solutions were often only used for the purpose of easier cleaning. Sapphire’s idea is to remove the whole fan with the motor. This way if anything goes wrong with the fan, they will just ship you a replacement.
