WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System
The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features 3 pure copper composite heat-pipes, heat-pipe direct touch GPU, 90mm unique blade fan design, 3D active fan with LED indicators, stylish metal back plate, together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.
90mm Unique Blade Fan Design
The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the air flow by 23% over traditional fans.
3 Heat-Pipes Direct Touch
The pure copper heat pipes are shaped to maximize the direct contact area to the GPU.
The composite heat-pipes combines both thermal conductivity and phase transition for efficiently managing the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces which increases 29% of cooling capacity.
Smart Power LED indicators
Be alert when PCI-E voltage is unstable with the smart power LED indicator.
- LED ON: power cable disconnected
- LED OFF : stable power supply
- Blinking LED: abnormal power supple

THE WAY TO PLAY
Enjoy smooth gaming with the most efficient Radeon Polaris GPU
SAPPHIRE + RADEON™
AWARD-WINNING DESIGN, TOP PERFORMANCE
The SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon™ RX 590 Special Edition graphics card
continues the ongoing improvement of the Polaris GPU series and
represents the ultimate gaming product in its segment. FinFET
process has evolved further to 12 nanometers lithography, resulting
in better performance while retaining the same 175 Watts of energy
consumption of an RX 580.
ALL-NEW DUAL-X COOLER
The Dual-X cooler featured in the latest SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 500
Series cards is an all-new design. We've doubled the fin surface
area and used an efficient combination of 2x 8 mm and 2x 6 mm
copper heatpipes. As a result, both the noise level and
temperatures are down compared to our previous generation.
MINIMUM NOISE, MAXIMUM RELIABILITY
Two 95 mm fans with advanced airflow section blades provide more
powerful yet quieter cooling versus smaller standard fans. With
dust-repelling dual ball bearings, Dual-X offers exceptional
With NITRO+ models, SAPPHIRE has upped the stakes with its new Fan
Check system, which allows users to check the cooler’s status via
SAPPHIRE TriXX 3.0 software.
To resolve a specific fan issue, SAPPHIRE’s Quick Connect System
provides a quick and easy solution. If there’s a fan issue
detected, the user doesn’t need to return the entire card –
SAPPHIRE’s partners will send out a replacement fan directly to the
customer or the retailer. Please contact your place of purchase to
request a fan replacement. SAPPHIRE’s channel partner will arrange
the ideal solution for you to receive your replacement fan.
ROBUST VRM COOLING
On the cooling module, heatsink is stamped to the shape of the
MOSFET with high thermal conductivity pad to take away the heat
efficiently. On the backplate, same idea is also implemented around
the back side of the MOSFET area.
INTELLIGENT FAN CONTROL III
ZERO DB COOLING
Enjoy complete silence under light workloads with entirely passive
cooling. No spinning fans means no distractions while you work or
PRECISE FAN CONTROL
Traditional fan may have up to 10% difference on fan RPM from fan
to fan at the same fan duty cycle. Now with the new fan controller
on the SAPPHIRE NITRO+, this tolerance is reduced to 3.2%. This
improvement on the accuracy ensures the cooling and noise
performance of every card is up to the standard.
The graphics card is more than just another component; it’s the
beating heart of your gaming system. It should look as good as it
costs. With tasteful shroud design augmented by RGB LEDs, each card
is practically a piece of art.
You can even change the colours of the LED, for your own customized
design. This can be controlled via software using the latest
version of SAPPHIRE’s Overclocking Utility TriXX 3.0. You can
choose from a set of five different modes including Fan Speed Mode,
GPU Temperature Mode or the colourful rainbow mode. If you prefer,
LEDs can also be turned off.
