SAPPHIRE Nitro Gear has been announced and the company is looking to introduce new accessories for your GPU. While we have seen swappable LED fans in the past, we have not seen backplates and GPUs shrouds that you could buy separately. I can see how this could be useful in the future and why people would be interested in such products.
Nitro+ RX 580 Limited Edition came in two different versions, one with LED fans and the other without them. Both ways people wanted LED fans to be introduced so that they could customize their GPUs depending upon what they wanted and SAPPHIRE has answered that call. The company has done more than that and went one step ahead.
I have to admit that LED fans are something that was very obvious but even I could not predict the SAPPHIRE Nitro Gear GPU shrouds and backplates. Images of the products have been included in this article and you can see that they look pretty cool. All the fans feature double ball bearings and work well with the following GPUs:
- SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 580 Limited Edition
- SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 580
- SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 570
- SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 480
- SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 470
- SAPPHIRE NITRO RX 480
- SAPPHIRE NITRO RX 470
- SAPPHIRE PULSE RX 580
- SAPPHIRE PULSE RX 570
SAPPHIRE Nitro Gear GPU shrouds and backplates are not as compatible as the fans and will only be compatible with the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 580 Limited Edition, SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 580 and SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RX 570. If you own one of these GPUs then SAPPHIRE Nitro Gear is something that you should look forward to.
The SAPPHIRE Nitro Gear can come in handy if you are looking to customize your GPU and make it fit your PC theme. Provided that your theme matches the themes of the products that are being sold. This could be useful for many people. But this is not something for everyone.
