    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 Nitro+

    Picked one of these up from Scan yeasterday, for my new build and paid £725 for it. Sadly way overpriced but I wanna get the system built, as my 10 year old i7 with a 1070 needs to be retired...looking forward to some good 1440p FPS levels

    Parm, when you measured the noise level, was the card in Quiet Mode or something else?

    110 quid premium over the reference board seems weird. Like that is high end extras territory.

    The power, temperature and noise readings were taken using the default 'Performance' profile. We did also run the same tests again using the Quiet profile but noticed barely any change. In either mode, fan speed only briefly exceeded 30 per cent and typically remained below 1,000RPM.

    I really like the aesthetic of the backplate on this GPU, it look far more white though than the front which is more silver? is this just a picture issue or is it like that in person?

    That is the picture; it's a light silver in the flesh.

    Looks awesome, and good if you want a quiet card, not sure it quite justifies the premium over the reference though, it's almost 3080 money!

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 Nitro+

    So it behaves like a factory-underclocked version of reference with improved noise but not improved thermals, and some overclocking headroom to bring it back up to reference speeds... Hmmm. Not the most convincing of offerings for such a massive price hike!

    Re: Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 Nitro+

    Sort of agree with Roobubba... I am a big Sapphire fan, but this is a bit disappointing for a NITRO card they allude to the cooler being way lighter than what was on the Vega cards as being a good thing, but it sort of just sounds like cost-cutting that's being spun off as a consumer benefit (hotel towel changing, anyone?).

    I do really want to upgrade to a 6800 card, but this horrific stock and pricing situation, combined with some questionable OEM designs is making me less and less interested...
