Sapphire launches 2GB HD 5870's
Vapor-X and Toxic editions
In addition to regular factory overclocked HD 5870 cards, Sapphire has also launched two new HD 5870 cards with 2GB of memory, the HD 5870 Vapor-X and HD 5870 Toxic edition.
Both cards feature the same Vapor-X cooler that provides lower temperatures and higher overclocking potential. The Vapor-X model features reference clocks so it works at 850MHz for the core and 4800MHz for 2GB of GDDR5 memory.
The Toxic Edition is a bit more interesting as this one works at 925MHz for the GPU and 4900MHz for the same 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Both cards have 1600 Stream processors, support for DirectX 11, CrossfireX, Eyefinity and feature two DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs.
Both cards are currently listed in Europe at €449 for the Toxic and €439,90 for the Vapor-X edition. You can find them both here.
