We've already seen HIS bring us the HD 6870 Turbo which was quite fast, so it comes as no surprise that Sapphire has come out with a TOXIC version of the HD 6850. Considering AMD left it up to the AIB to handle the HD 6850, it really doesn't come as a surprise since they've probably been working on the model for a while.
So what's the TOXIC have in store for us? Well, usually it's an upgraded cooler along with a bump in clocks. The questions we have to ask ourselves is how the new cooler goes and whether or not the clocks are something that we should be getting a little excited about.
The HD 6800 series is looking the goods at the moment and it seems with the slight delay in the HD 6900 series till December, companies are going to have a little more time than they actually thought with the HD 6800 series for the aforementioned reason.
We all know about the HD 6800 series at this stage, so there's not point getting into it much more; instead let's see the package that Sapphire is giving us with its new TOXIC variant of the HD 6850.
Sapphire got us this product nice and early and after they had the boxes done they decided to change the packing and bring the model into the TOXIC series. While the box and the card artwork might change a little, the box content won't. Speaking of which, we've got a few things with the more stand out options being a mini DP to DP convertor along with a HDMI cable.
