Looks like what we recently learned to be the fastest desktop graphics card on the market, hands down, has started to get sampled in larger quantities and should hit the market very soon now.
We're of course talking about Sapphire's suped up HD 5970 weapon which they nestle into their top-end TOXIC series lineup. This monster puts the already super impressive HD 5970 to shame with double the memory at 4GB, huge jumps in clockspeeds and monster cooling solution to suit from Arctic Cooling, the Accelero Xtreme.
If you didn't catch the review already, Shane's benchmarks of this card showed there to be nothing else on the market that comes close to giving the performance this card has on tap. And how about overclocking beyond the factory overclock? Yep, there's even more headroom for that. This card is the bee's knees.
Sapphire hasn't mentioned pricing on the card just yet, but the people that are truly serious about having the best of the best will all tell you the same thing; price is no objective.
