If you had unlimited amount of dough at your disposal, then would you want to settle for nothing but the very best at all times, under all circumstances? If the answer is in the affirmative, then surely you have a need for speed – from driving a Ferrari to owning a dual-core smartphone and possible wanting the best gaming rig possible. The Sapphire HD 6950 TOXIC Edition is said to be the fastest production HD6950 graphics card on the market at the moment, and if you have one, will you put it to the test?
Touted to ship with clock speeds of 880MHz for the core and 1300Mhz (5.2 Gb/sec effective) for the memory, it was built on a high specification PCB with digital VRMs for excellent power regulation and 8 + 6 pin power connectors. To make sure that things run nice and cool despite churning out such a level of performance, it sports a high performance cooler that has a Vapor Chamber, blower fan and a new perforated backplate which will help increase airflow out of the system case.
Connectivity options abound with a couple of DVI ports, one HDMI port and two mini-DisplayPort outputs. To get an idea on how much value it can add to your multimedia experience, the Sapphire HD 6950 TOXIC Edition is capable of handling two 1080p HD video streams simultaneously, while showing off HD video in high quality with Windows Aero mode enabled. Are you tempted yet?
