Sapphire announces HD 7870 Flex Edition
Eyefinity via DVI and Dual-X cooler
Sapphire has added yet another graphics card to its Flex lineup, the HD 7870 Flex Edition. Featuring support for up to four displays, the Flex Edition can do multiple screen Eyefinity without the need for expensive active DisplayPort adapters by simply using DVI and HDMI ports.
The new Sapphire HD 7870 Flex Edition supports up to four screens via two DVI, one HDMI and, of course, DisplayPort output. Spec wise, the HD 7870 Flex Edition is based on AMD's 28nm GCN architecture Pitcairn XT GPU with 1280 stream processors, works at 1000MHz for the GPU and feature 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1200MHz (4.8GHz effective) on a 256-bit memory interface.
The new HD 7870 Flex Edition is paired up with Sapphire's quite well known Dual-X Cooler that should keep the temps of the entire board well at bay. The new graphics card also features dual-BIOS and additional overclocking, voltage adjustment and fan speed control via Sapphire's TriXX software.
The new Sapphire HD 7870 Flex Edition is already listed in Europe with a price of around €320 depending on the region.
