Sapphire has introduced a passively-cooled version of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, which it has called the GPRO X070. The company intends professional users to purchase the card, but it does feature four display outputs. There is also an Efficiency Mode BIOS for running the RX 5700 XT at reduced clock speeds.

The Radeon RX 6000 series' stock levels may remain practically non-existent, but Sapphire has introduced a new version of the Radeon RX 5700 XT. Sapphire aims the card, called the GPRO X070, at professional users, although we see no reason why it could not make its way into a consumer PC build too. The passive cooling of the GPRO X070 will be its main draw, which could be useful for those who want a silent system.

The GPRO X070 has two BIOSes, with one called Efficiency Mode. According to Videocardz, Efficiency Mode reduces the GPU's clock speeds and memory to a low of 1,500 MHz and 14 Gbps, respectively. Sapphire has not explained why it has included this BIOS mode on the GPRO X070, though.

Otherwise, the GPRO X070 is a regular RX 5700 XT with 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM operating on a 256-bit interface. The card has its full 40 Compute Units enabled and can boost to 1,905 MHz when running on its regular BIOS. The GPRO X070 has one HDMI connection and three DisplayPort outputs, but Sapphire has yet to reveal how much the GPRO X070 will cost.
