Testing a video card isn't a 5 minute job. To be honest, it's not even a 5 hour job or a 1 day job. From the minute a video card arrives 'till the moment I can send it off to my editor, many, many hours are put into the review; everything from photography to benchmarking.
The HD 5970 TOXIC 4GB from Sapphire today is getting a preview; this is something we tend to only do with cards that we look at in Taiwan or at a trade show. The reason we're doing it for this model is that it deserves it! - There's only a few samples released worldwide right now and we want to bring you some information as soon as possible.
We're not going to talk too much; on the next page we'll have a few pictures of the card and the associating bundle. After that we're onto a few graphs and then we'll quickly give a wrap-up. The full review will be followed in only just a few days, but you should get to see what's going on with it now, as I'm excited to see it for myself.
