HD 3870 in its full glory

 

We wrote that Sapphire's ATOMIC HD 3870 is coming and that it will feature the new Vapor Chamber Technology single slot cooling. The first review of this card is up, and the card works at 825MHz for the core and 2400MHz for 512MB of GDDR4 memory, which is far higher then reference 775/2250MHz.

Our colleagues from Overclockers Club managed to be the first site that got its hands on one of these beauties. The high factory overclock, HDMI cable, Cold Cathodes are just a small part of what this card can offer. According to the review Sapphire has done a good job, and currently this is the only HD 3870 that will be able to run Quad Crossfire; of course, this is as soon as ATI is done with the drivers.

According to the review, Sapphire's VCT cooler is much quieter and even better than ATI's reference dual slot cooling.
