Unless the Nitro card is the "LE" model (3 x 8pins, RGB fan shroud and not just backplate) and not the standard "SR", it is not binned.

The Nitro will be quieter, but the LC card will have a factory binned chip and should maintain clocks that are quite a bit higher than the Nitro card. I have owned the Nitro, Red Devil, Strix, Reference air, and the LC card. I compared all the air cooled cards here in this video. My LC card runs about 60-75mhz faster than the Nitro here. The Strix was one of the cards affected by the VRM cooling issue and its performance reflects that in this vid. That card was throttling due to VRM temps.
