Around here, we're well-familiar with the Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards from AMD. We've reviewed most of them here at HotHardware, from the entry-level RX 6500 XT, the RX 6600 and 6600 XT, the RX 6700 XT, the recently introduced Radeon RX 6750 XT, and the big boys based on Navi 21: Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT...

Earlier this month, we got an early look at Gigabyte’s upcoming Radeon RX 6600 Eagle 8G gaming card, which slots under the Radeon RX 6600 XT. Today it’s Sapphire’s turn, as the company’s Radeon RX 6600 Pulse is now listed for preorder at European retailer PC Dig. The thing that sticks out to us the most is how small... Read more...

Although the situation is improving, it is still extremely difficult to score some of the latest graphics cards at prices even approaching their MSRPs. With that in mind, we’ve held off on covering some of the hottest GPUs to come through the lab for a while, because the coverage was inevitably (and understandably) met with groans and...

We've seen some rather outlandish Radeon RX 6900 XT cards over the past few weeks, including the OC Formula from ASRock and the Liquid Devil Ultimate from PowerColor. Now it's Sapphire's time to shine in the limelight with the Toxic Radeon RX 6900 XT Extreme Edition (try saying that three times fast). As its name... Read more...
AMD launched its Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT to the public last week, and as expected, they represented quite the performance leap over their Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT predecessors. More importantly, the cards traded blows with NVIDIA new GeForce RTX 30 Series. While neither company's cards offer... Read more...
A week from tomorrow (November 8), two of AMD's latest-generation RDNA 2 graphics cards will make their retail debut, those being the Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800 (the Radeon RX 6900 XT will come out on December 8). And in the lead up to the retail launch, AMD's hardware partners are ready with custom designs... Read more...
AMD is rolling out a couple of new Ryzen Embedded R1000 system-on-chips (SoCs) to flesh out its existing lineup. The new entries slot in at the lower end and include the Ryzen Embedded R1305G and Ryzen Embedded R1102G. These new SoCs provide customers with a new thermal design power (TDP) range of 6-10 watts, whereas... Read more...
One of the first retail listings for a custom Navi card has appeared, which also gives us a glimpse of Sapphire's first non-reference model among the Radeon RX 5700 series. The card in question is Sapphire's Radeon RX 5700 XT Pulse, and it appears on a retail site in the UK priced at £428.99 (which converts to around... Read more...
When AMD first announced its initial round of first 7nm Navi 10-based graphics cards, they were aimed squarely at the mainstream segment of the gaming market to enable 1440p experiences. Those cards include theRadeon RX 5700, Radeon 5700 XT and Radeon 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition; all of which will launch on July... Read more...
Brace yourself, Radeon RX 590 graphics cards are coming. There is zero doubt about that at this point, even though AMD's upcoming Polaris refresh is still not official. It will be soon, and in the meantime, we're seeing more and more related leaks. The latest one is a set of press images depicting Sapphire's Radeon RX... Read more...
Sapphire Technology has begun taking orders for a small form factor (SFF) embedded motherboard with an AMD Ryzen V1000 APU (accelerated processing unit) running the show. The APU is permanently soldered to the motherboard (meaning users can't swap it out down the line) and combines Zen CPU cores for compute tasks with... Read more...
In another four months, it will be a full year since AMD launched its first Radeon RX Vega graphics cards to consumers. Thanks to a combination of cryptocurrency miners ravaging the GPU market and a memory chip shortage, graphics cards have been tough to come by. Hopefully that will change soon. Despite the unusual...

Sapphire is looking to close out 2017 on a high note, and to help accomplish that, the company is releasing a pair of custom, factory-overlocked Radeon Vega graphics cards for gaming enthusiasts. The cards, each with custom cooling solutions, are the Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 56 and Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 64. Before we... Read more...
Sapphire is one of AMD's premier hardware partners, so it makes sense that one of the first photo shoots of a Radeon RX Vega graphics card by a third-party belongs to the company. And unlike most pre-release photos, these are not blurry snapshots that look like they were taken with a Fisher Price camera in the middle... Read more...
In an alternate reality, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s lines would both use a hardened sapphire crystal glass material produced by a company called GT Advanced Technologies. Things happened that soured the business relationship between Apple and GTAT, sending the latter into bankruptcy and, now a year later, a settlement... Read more...
When AMD launched the liquid-cooled Radeon Fury X, we witnessed a company willing to commit to new architecture and bleeding edge technologies (Fiji and High-Bandwidth Memory, respectively). Beyond that, Fury X showed a level of ambition and hardware design chops we hadn’t seen from AMD in years. There’s no denying that between its exceptional... Read more...
Turning lemons into lemonade (on a massive scale), Apple is planning to pour $2 billion into a facility in Mesa, Arizona that just a few months ago was occupied by GT Advanced Technologies, which was supposed to be churning out sapphire-crystal displays for iPhone 6 devices. The investment will transform the factory... Read more...
One of the rumored features that didn't make it onto the iPhone 6 is the sapphire display. Touted for its durability and scratch-resistance, sapphire glass is used on the camera lens and Touch ID sensor, but not the main display where it's arguably needed most. It's not there in part because things turned sour between... Read more...
Earlier this week, Apple's partner for sapphire display technology, GT Advanced Technologies, filed for bankruptcy claiming that it could not continue operating in its present state. Today, some of the documents originally filed were unsealed and we got a closer look -- including GT Advanced Technologies plan to... Read more...
Apple still hasn't announced its next iPhone, but that hasn't stopped the Internet from talking about and leaking information in relation to what's likely to be called the iPhone 6. Much of the recent focus has been on the iPhone 6's supposed sapphire crystal display, a seemingly much more resilient material than... Read more...
Forget about spending money on scratch-proof screen protectors and bulky cases, Apple's next iPhone device might end up being tough as nails. Nothing is carved in stone, of course, though it appears Apple is wanting to outfit the iPhone 6 with a scratch-proof sapphire crystal display. It would be much tougher than current displays, which are... Read more...
