A Closer Look

The PULSE RX 580 is a great looking card and features the new shroud design we see on nearly all the new Sapphire RX cards. It looks pretty similar to the NITRO+ series of cards, which are the faster RX 5xx series, but the PULSE has a slightly smaller shroud and heatsink, and no silver trim running down the middle.

The card features two huge fans, which can simply be lifted out, cleaned, then clipped back in with ease. The large heat sink uses four thick heat pipes, which pass through a huge contact plate to cool the GPU, VRM, and memory.

At the end of the card, you’ll find 2 x HDMI, 2 x DP, and 1 x DVI, as well as a few large ventilation slots to get heat out of the card.

The best feature of this card, however, has to be that gorgeous backplate with the heart rate “pulse” on the back. The thick metal backplate is a nice surprise for a more affordable card like this.

Finally, the Pulse RX 580 takes its power from a single 8-pin PCI connector.
