Sapphire Radeon RX 6500 XT Pulse @ TechPowerUp

Published: | Posted By:

The interesting thing about product releases is that when you piss off your core demographic they tend to start crying like a little girl with a skinned knee.  Claiming that their supported hardware maker is raising prices, lowering performance and doesn't have their finger on the pulse.

Unfortunately, for them, while the words and actions might intend to be harmful it does nothing more than to Streisand effect the product into the mainstream giving the hardware maker a ton of free publicity. 

The Sapphire Radeon RX 6500 XT Pulse comes with super impressive noise levels. Even when fully loaded it runs whisper quiet—in an already quiet room. If you put it into a case it'll be inaudible. Unfortunately the card is held back by its small VRAM size of 4 GB and the narrow PCIe x4 interface.

People get upset when things change and perceivably regress and then forget that from a hardware standpoint the net result is basically the same.
