Checking out the card itself, it's clear we're dealing with a new cooler. The fan has been moved directly over the top of the core and if you look carefully, you can see the aluminum fins on the heatsink and a number of copper heat pipes coming out the top of the card.
There's not a whole lot of branding on the cooler actually. We've got a Sapphire sticker in the middle, but apart from that we've got a blue and black color scheme going on with the cooler which is something a little new. Hopefully it cools as well as it looks; only time will tell for sure.
A quick spin around the card doesn't show any surprises. At the back of the card power is supplied with the help of two PCI-E 6 Pin power connectors. Moving across the top of the card and closer to the front, we've got our two CrossFire connectors which give us the ability to run up to three of these.
In the I/O department we've got two Dual-Link DVI connectors, a single HDMI port and a single DisplayPort. You can see we've also got a little bit of an air vent in the top left corner which lets some of the hot air escape.
As we mentioned already, being part of the TOXIC series not only means that the card gets a fancy new cooler, but also a bump in clock speeds. Having a look below, you can see the new clock speeds that Sapphire offers while also seeing what the stock ones are.
We can see that the core has gone from 725MHz to 765MHz, while the memory has moved from 1000MHz or 4000MHz QDR to a more impressive 4500MHz QDR. This is a nice little bump in clock speeds and should yield some good performance numbers.
