We’ve hit the middle of the week, so that means it’s time for day 6 of our 20 day giveaway celebration of AnandTech’s 20th anniversary.

This morning we have some more video cards to give away, courtesy of Sapphire. Perhaps AMD’s closest board partner, the company has sent over one of each of their Nitro+ factory overclocked Radeon RX 580 card, and their slightly lower-key Pulse Radeon RX 580. The company has also sent over a bit of true swag, with a set of their steins. We have one each for the video card winners, and a 3 piece set for our third winner.

  • Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 & a Sapphire Stein
  • Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 & a Sapphire Stein
  • Set of 3 Sapphire Steins

The AnandTech 20th Anniversary Celebration – Sapphire Giveaway

Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 8GB

At the high-end of Sapphire’s Radeon RX 500 series lineup is the Nitro+ series, the company’s gaming-focused, factory overclocked cards. The Nitro+ RX 580 sports a factory overclock of 1411MHz, 71MHz over AMD’s reference clock. Internally, the card is built on a custom Sapphire PCB with significantly beefed up power delivery (and a 235W TDP to match), backed by Sapphire’s Black Diamond chokes.

Cooling for the card is provided by one of Sapphire’s dual-fan Dual X coolers, which sports a set of rather sizable 95mm diameter fans. The fans also feature Sapphire’s Quick Connect feature, which allows them to be quickly connected and disconnected if necessary. And for some added flair, the Nitro+ also features full RGB lighting built into the card’s shroud, which Sapphire advertises under the Nitro Glow 2 name.

Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8GB

Meanwhile we also have Sapphire’s Pulse Radeon RX 580 card, the company’s entry-level RX 580 board. Like its bigger sibling, the Pulse is a dual-fan open air cooler type card, sporting a Dual X cooler with a pair of quick connect fans. The factory overclock on this card isn’t as aggressive as with the Nitro+, with Sapphire shipping the card at 1366MHz, 26MHz over the AMD reference. In turn, the card is a bit more compact as well, coming in at just 9.1-inches long.

Sapphire Stein

Last, we have Sapphire Steins for each video card winner, and another 3 for the 3rd place winner. Hoist your favorite drink in one while gaming, or use it to host company.

Finally, as with our other giveaways, today’s giveaway is only open for 48 hours, so be sure to enter soon. However please note that for legal reasons, we’re only able to open these giveaways to residents of the United States.

Good luck to everyone! And be sure to check in this afternoon for our next giveaway.

    How many people fail the post a comment entry because unless you reload the page the "link" link is broken?

    Refresh the page, then go to the end of the comments. Your comment will be there. I assume it breaks because your comment isn't in the right spot immediately after you post it.

    This whole time I never saw the "link" link. With the color it just blended into the comment date. I could never figure out what they meant by a link to your comment.

    Thank You.

    Damn I've been doing the comment link wrong for all of the previous giveaways and just linking to the comments page lol.
  • lmcd - Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - link

    I personally just copy the link, then stick the page url in front of it.
  • Aichon - Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - link

    Rather annoying, to be sure, but even as a newbie, I figured it out immediately.
  • neo_1221 - Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - link

    Yeah, it's a pretty minor annoyance.
