Product information - Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56, 8192 MB HBM2

The Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 is a true high-end graphics card for gamers that is packed with a range of features that make it ideal for 4K gaming and creating immersive experiences in Virtual Reality (VR). Radeon RX Vega graphics cards are an even more attractive proposition when paired with a FreeSync Monitor, this results in a flawlessly smooth and tear-free display output. As in the reference design, Sapphire utilises second generation High Bandwith Memory (HBM) to maximise performance.

The 8 GB HBM2-VRAM, clocked at 800 MHz, is connected to the GPU via a 2048-bit memory interface. One of the unique features of HBM memory is its placement directly on the GPU die and not on the board as is normally the case. The GPU of the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 is clocked at 1.266 MHz and can increase using Boost Mode to 1.550 MHz. Thanks to the 14 phase power supply and the three 8-pin power connectors, the overclocking potential of the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 is especially high. The graphics card also possesses two different UEFI-BIOS configurations offering silent- and standard operating modes. These allow the clock frequencies of the GPU to change independently from the fan speeds and to allow them to switch off entirely at low loads.

The better the cooling of the graphics card, the longer the boost frequencies can be maintained. The cooling of the graphics card is supplied via the semi-passive cooler design consisting of multiple heatpipes, two large heatsinks with aluminium fins and three large fans. The fans spin in different directions for extra cooling effectiveness and thanks to the Quick Connect system, they can be removed without needing tools should a defect occur. The backplate ensures increased PCB stability and the configurable RGB-LED lighting lends the card a stylish aesthetic.

The Features of the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56:

  • Semi-passive cooler design with 3 fans
  • 8 GB High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2)
  • 56 Next-Gen Compute Units (NCUs; 3.584 Shaders)
  • BIOS switch with Silent, Standard and OC modes
  • Base Clock: 1.266 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1.550 MHz
  • High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)
  • Rapid Packed Math (RPM) NCUs
  • New Programmable Geometry Pipeline
  • Enhanced Pixel Engine

The Architecture of AMD Radeon Vega Graphics Cards

The Vega architecture not only contains a variety of optimisation in comparison to the Graphics Core Next architecture of previous generations, instead it represents a completely new element. In this way Vega GPU architecture builds on a foundation consisting of four new pillars:

    • High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)
    • Rapid Packed Math (RPM) of Next-Gen Compute Units (NCU)
    • New Programmable Geometry Pipeline
    • Enhanced Pixel Engine

    High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)

    AMD’s High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC) The High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC) enables a marked improvement in the effective utilisation of the HBM (High Bandwidth Memory) modules when compared to Fiji-generation GPUs which were the first to benefit from this unique type of memory. The HBC Controller also allows for highly efficient memory control as well as increasing the minimum Frames per Second (FPS) in many games by up to 100% and the maximum FPS by more than 50%. In practical terms this amounts to a doubling of the 8 GB HBM2-VRAM of the Radeon RX Vega to 16 GB!

    Next-Gen Compute Unit (NCU) & Rapid Packed Math (RPM)

    Rapid Packed Math (RPM) of the Next-Gen Compute Units (NCU) Rapid Packed Math (RPM) is a feature of the Next-Gen Compute Unit (NCU) and utilises the highly flexible core structure of the new compute units. For example, RPM accelerates FP16 calculations to allow mathematically-oriented processes to be calculated more quickly. With RPM activated this doubles the number of calculations capable of being carried out per second without requiring additional resources. Rapid Packed Math is of particular benefit to physics-based calculations, as seen in large explosions featuring in games.

    New Programmable Geometry Pipeline

    The New Programmable Geometry Pipeline von AMD Vega The new programmable geometry pipeline of the Vega architecture is capable of processing, thanks to its efficient load balancing, many millions of polygons simultaneously. The AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition Air offers a maximum geometry calculation capacity of 11 polygons (with the help of 4 Geometry Units) per clock, doubling that of the Radeon R9 Fury X with its 4 polygons per clock. Modelling applications in particular benefit from this, and furthermore this enables large 3D models to be renders in near real-time.

    Enhanced Pixel Engine

    The Enhanced Pixel Engine also unleashes an optimised Shade Unit design, one which provides notable performance increases at high resolutions (WQHD, UHD) and in displaying virtual reality. In specific terms the Enhanced Pixel Engine provides a new rasterizer technology which optimises cache localisation while creating more efficient rendering processes.

    In order for the card to reach its maximum potential, new drivers should be downloaded and installed at regular intervals from the AMD website.

Well built, fast, cool & quiet

Upgraded from RX 480 to this because I wanted more fps in certain demanding games on my 1080p ultrawide 80Hz display.
I consider it really good for the price I paid (469 + 3 games). Can get even faster, cooler, quieter and much less power hungry if you undervolt it.
The only drawback could be slower Hynix memory but it has to be worse than Vega 64 in some way and it wasn't worth it for MY current needs to pay so much more for Vega 64.


very solid

Got this card for 469 EUR in august 2018, i use it with 1440p monitor with freesync and its fantastic. Build quality is very solid.


Beste Vega 56 Perfekt für WQHD

Man kann alle Spiele flüssig in WQHD spielen.

Sie ist dabei sehr leise und bleibt immer unter 65 Grad.

Die Verarbeitung von Sapphire ist auch sehr hochwertig und sieht echt gut aus.


Sehr leise und leistungsstark

.) Sehr gute Leistung für 1440p
.) Extrem leise
.) Sehr gut verarbeitet

Top Karte für die nächsten 2 Jahre!

Gewohnte Qualität von Sapphire

Sapphire unterstreicht mit dieser Grafikkarte einmal mehr, dass sie der wichtigste und erfolgreichste Boardpartner von AMD sind.

Die Verarbeitung ist auf einem sehr hohen Niveau. Die intelligente Lüftersteuerung, die entweder keinen, einen, zwei oder alle drei Lüfter aktiviert, trägt maßgeblich zu einer angenehmen Geräuschkulisse bei. Dank eines Schalters, der ein alternatives BIOS aktiviert, stehen zusammen mit den Modi unter dem AMD Adrenalin Treiber insgesamt sechs verschiedene Einstellungen zur Verfügung, die sich auf die Leistung bzw. den Verbrauch auswirken.

Selbst auf der geringsten Einstellung hat man für die nächste Zeit mehr als genug Reserven, wenn man sich mit Full HD begnügt.

Einziges "Manko": Die Größe. Hier sollte man vorab prüfen, ob die Karte mit ihren über 30 cm Länge überhaupt in das Gehäuse passt.

Die 5 Sterne sind insgesamt mehr als verdient!

Grafikkarten Bewertung

erstmal ein Danke an Caseking für die schnelle Lieferung und die gute Verpackung.
Die Grafikkarte ist schnell und leise, genau wie in der Beschreibung. sie ist einfach zu empfehlen, so wie Caseking, besser ist nur schwer möglich Danke.


Leise und Leistungsstark!

Im Vorgriff auf die Anschaffung eines 27" WQHD Freesync Monitors wurde diese Grafikkarte erworben. Zur Zeit wird sie noch mit einem 24" FullHD Monitor genutzt. Hier ist sie sehr leise und leistungsstark.

Bei Witcher 3 werden mit Höchsteinstellungen bei der Grafik durchgängig mindestens 60 FPS (mehr schafft der Monitor nicht) bei maximal 65° erreicht. Die Karte ist praktisch kaum hörbar aus dem System - vor allem im Vergleich zur vorher vorhandenen RX 480, die, bei geringerer Grafikqualität, erheblich lauter ist.

Eine sehr gute Grafikkarte, die hier noch mit einem netten Spielebundle zu einem akzeptablen Preis angeboten wird.


Perfekt für WQHD Auflösung!

Da ich schon seit längern einen 27" WQHD Freesync Monitor besitze musste eine bessere Grafikkarte her um weiterhin mit maximalen Details spielen zu könnnen.

Die Sapphire Vega 56 Nitro+ erfüllt diese Aufgabe mit Bravour. Dabei agiert diese Karte äußerst leise und bleibt dabei auch noch erstaunlich Kühl.

Alles in allem eine sehr gute Grafikkarte die allerdings vom Preis-Leistungsverhältniss, wie alle Vega Karten, weiterhin eher schlecht ist. (599€, 05/18) Aber für Besitzer hochauflösender Freesync Monitore bleibt nur diese Option.


Top Karte

Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit der Karte.
Sie hat eine Wahnsinns Leistung, ist flüster leise und wird nie mehr als 60 grad warm.
