Sapphire RX 6800 XT Nitro+ Graphics Card Review

Sapphire has long been one of my favourite GPU brands, and I’ve owned a fair few of them since my earliest PC gaming days to modern times. I often found that when it came to AMD cards, theirs were some of the finest. My 8800 GT, HD6770, Crossfire 270X, 380X, RX480 and VEGA64 were all Sapphire! Now they’re back once again with the new Sapphire RX 6800 XT Nitro+. It’ll be interesting to see how the card performs, as the stock AMD card is already pretty amazing. Can their custom cooler and clocks make much difference? Well, that’s what we’re here to find out!
