Sapphire Pulse 5600 XT BE

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Aside from no dual bios and no quick connect fans, is it completely identical to its red counterpart? The red Pulse has a great cooler design and I'm not sure if the black edition compromises any of that to be cheaper.

I have the non-BE version and the cooler design seems identical. As for performance, the weird thing is that it advertises 14Gbps memory bus, which means that it's the post launch BIOS revision (launched at 12Gbps), but the max boost clock is the launch clock speed (1620Mhz), not the post launch revision clock speed, which is 1750Mhz.

 

Not sure why they would downclock it, unless there is something different about the cooler design. Is there a particular reason you're looking at this one? Is it vastly cheaper or something? If not, I'd just go with the original to be safe. I can tell you first hand that that one, at least, is a treat.

I read an article that mentions it possibly has one less heat pipe. Is the cooler variant out yet? If not, wait for a review.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Looking at it because it's black with no lighting basically. However I do very much like red and will gladly choose the original version if there are any compromises. You make a good point about clock speeds, though.

Have only been able to find two videos on it.

Temps seem good though. But I really wanna see a tear-down.

Ah, yeah, definitely different heat pipe config. I was mostly looking at the cooler itself.

Man, I do like the look of the BE better though. It would fit with my black and white build much better.
