Sapphire is not stopping on NITRO+. A cheaper variant of custom RX Vega 56 is already making an appearance.
SAPPHIRE Radeon RX Vega 56 PULSE
A German etailer has already published the pictures of yet unannounced custom model of RX Vega by Sapphire. This card is part of the PULSE series, which are Sapphire’s budget line. The card is utilizing custom PCB which is fully covered by a dual-fan cooling solution. In fact, the cooler is at least twice as long as the PCB.
This model comes with a base clock of 1208 MHz (+52 MHz) and boosts clock of 1512 MHz (+41 MHz). That said, Pulse Vega will be 60 MHz slower than NITRO+.
The card is currently listed at €789 at Alternate.de and it should ship early February.
