The Sapphire RX 5700 XT Pulse is a major improvement over the RX 5700 XT reference design, making 40dBA use under heavy load actually feasible (and at better thermals even than the reference card when left unconstrained/auto controlled). The benchmark almost entirely looks at thermals and noise, as gaming performance is largely unaffected. Pricing is also close to MSRP for reference, making a card like this an easy choice over the original model. The only issues left are driver-side, and some of those have been resolved, although overclocking is still a massive pain when compared to working with NVIDIA cards or older AMD cards. In this review, we'll look at if the Sapphire RX 5700 XT Pulse is worth it, particularly versus the reference 5700 XT. Some mentions of the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2060 Super are also made, although we do focus mostly on the XT vs. XT comparison.
