    Sapphire Radeon RX 590 NITRO+ Special Edition spotted

    Photos of packaging and card leak. Previously we saw evidence of Asus and PowerColor cards.

    Wow...To each its own but...that is some kind of ugly. Why doesn't the box match with the card colors so you get an idea of what's in it...?!

    It's uglier in person. Picked up a 580 last week from amazon for £200

    Holy - Baby Blue ? That is so many kinds of ugly. Would have to disassemble and paint flat black like the old sapphire cards

    sure it's a dull and oddly coloured, but it's a graphics card; looks don't matter!
    Waiting on actual performance/temperature results before judging

    It might be a kind of electric blue that doesn't work well in the diffuse lighting of the photo booth?

    Yeah, it's pretty "unique". It's a shame, really. The black shrouding looks pretty good and (from what I've read) is pretty effective, as far as coolers go.

    I prefer the normal nitro cards with the black cover, looking for a cheap second rx580 which I am sure the RX590 will help with.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 590 NITRO+ Special Edition spotted

    I guess, if my case had no window this could work; but then again, why make it any color in that case...?

    Am I the only one on this forum who thinks the colour is kinda cool?

    In a way i actually like the colour but can't imagine it working with the colour scheme of 99% of desktops. So the only difference between this and a 580 is the clock speed is boosted to 1500 MHz?

    Blue or Black I think it looks quite good. The £236 + VAT looks a bit much though. A 12nm RX 580 for nearly £300..

    Not quite. It has new 12nm silicon to allow it to hit that frequency without glowing like a star, so there might even be some overclocking headroom on top of that.

    VideoCardz has shared a Newegg Canada listing showing this card at "500 CAD (~378 USD)". The leak includes base and boost clocks data and more, for example see below:

    This will go quite nicely with my pink case and my lime green keyboard.
