Sapphire's Watercooled Radeon HD 4870 X2 ATOMIC Edition

 

Introduction

 

I really do love the launch of a new ATI based graphics card, because as soon as it's released I'm on the back of Sapphire asking when an ATOMIC and TOXIC version of the card is coming.

 

Unlike a lot of companies who bump the core and memory up 25MHz then turn around and say "overclocked", when Sapphire overclock they do it properly. The HD 4870 X2 ATOMIC is different, though; the card really steps out of the square, even for Sapphire. It's not like anything we've seen from them before and that's in the good way.

 

Attention to detail on this card is nothing short of fantastic and I have to honestly say that when the card was delivered I half expected it to be hand cuffed to the courier. With all that said and done, let's begin and see exactly what we have going on here.
