Sapphire has introduced a new addition to its Pulse graphics card series called the Pulse Radeon RX 560 Lite. The company’s newest graphics card is apparently based off of AMD’s “slower” Polaris 21 GPU. That said, PC gamers should be able to run major esports games relatively smoothly with the Pulse Radeon RX 560 Lite.
It’s worth mentioning, again, that the Polaris 21 GPU that comes with Sapphire’s Pulse Radeon RX 560 Lite features 896 stream processors; for those who may remember, the reference Radeon RX 560 came with a steam processor count of 1,024. Clock speed of this graphics card is rated at 1300MHz, while memory bandwidth is kept at a cool 7GHz.
When it comes to design, the Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 560 Lite features an all black cooler shroud along with two open-air cooling fans. To aid cooling even further, a large aluminium heatsink is fitted onto this graphics card as well. Of course, being a “budget-oriented” graphics card means that the Pulse Radeon RX 560 Lite does not come with a backplate.
Sapphire has not announced the local pricing and date of availability of the Pulse Radeon RX 560 Lite graphics card at the time of writing. In addition, it’s also not known whether the company will be bringing this graphics card into Malaysia in the first place. Expect an announcement to be made by the company and retailers should it decide to do so in the coming weeks.
