Product information - Pulse Radeon RX Vega 56, 8192 MB HBM2

The Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX Vega 56 is a true high-end graphics card for gamers and comes kitted out with a multitude of features designed for gaming in 4K as well as immersive VR. This card will be of particular interest to PC gamers looking to pair it with a FreeSync monitor for an incredibly smooth and tear-free gaming experience! As in the reference design, Sapphire utilises the revolutationary second-generation High Bandwith Memory (HBM).

The graphics card offered here provides 8 GB HBM2 memory clocked at 800 MHz and is connected to the GPU via a 2048-bit memory bus interface. One of the unique features of HBM memory is the fact that it is located on the GPU die (that is to say, in the graphics chip) and not, as is normally the case, distributed around the GPU. The GPU of the Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX Vega 56 is clocked at 1.305 MHz and can increase when needed up to 1.572 MHz in Boost Mode. Thanks to the 14-phase power supply and three 8-pin power connectors, the OC potential of the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 is particularly high. The graphics card comes with two different UEFI BIOS configurations, one for Silent mode and one for standard operation. The fans can even switch off completely for silent operation when the GPU is under low load.

The better cooling the GPU receives, the longer it can maintain its boost clocks. The cooling of the graphics card is provided by a semi-passive cooler design consisting of multiple heatpipes, two large heatsinks with aluminium fins and three large fans. The fans spin in differing directions to improve cooling efficiency, and the Quick Connect system allows them to be removed without tools should the need arise. The backplate increases the stability of the PCB and the configurable RGB-LED lighting lends the card an exceptionally stylish look.

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

  • Semi-passive cooler design with three fans
  • 8 GB High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2)
  • 56 Next-Gen Compute Units (NCUs; 3.584 Shaders)
  • BIOS Switch with Silent, Standard and OC BIOS
  • Base Clock: 1.305
  • Boost Clock: 1.572 MHz
  • High Bandwidth Cache Controller (HBCC)
  • Rapid Packed Math (RPM) der 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.

Pretty good :)

Nice performance
1) You need to undervolt it, because it will run faster (even if you dont overclock it) consumes a little bit less and runs much cooler (i saw 10degrees less)
2) Really happy that it has samsung hbm they are running at 960mhz at their stock power.
3) VRMs have their own heatpipe.
4) I was really impressed when i saw zero sag since the card is long (not that much wide).
5) 3 free games (yaayyy)
6)It has a the buzzing thing (coil whine), but i can handle it its not that annoying.
7)Fans are a bit loud but they can keep the thing cool.

Gut aber nicht Perfekt

Gute Leistung (Bios 2 166Watt)
Die Lüfter sind Leise und die Kühlleistung ist mehr als Ok. ~60°C in einem CM Q300L.

Ein Problem ist die Lautstärke der Spulen... PUBG im Ultra preset bei 1080p und FPS limit bei 85, ist das Spulenpfeifen (coil whine) recht laut und nervig.
Auch bei niedrigeren Grafikeinstellungen kommt es dazu.

Ansonsten bin ich mit der Karte sehr zufrieden und der Preis (370€) ist ebenso Ok.



Great card
+Nice performance
+Not loud
+Temps are about 55-65 in full load
-still the price, but now its acceptable
-not glowing fans :P

I guess its very well balanced in price(539)/performance/noise/temps Vega
