Sapphire HD 5970 with 4GB of VRAM at CeBIT

4GB of GDDR5 on one video card!

I am a big fan of PC gaming and always look forward to new video cards hitting the market to give me better graphics when I play. A new video card has turned up at CeBIT from Sapphire and the card is a beast.


The Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5970 has 4GB of on-board memory of the GDDR5 flavor. It uses a Sapphire Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme cooler packed with three fans and four copper heat pipes. That massive cooler should keep the card running nice and cool.

The GPU clock is 850MHz and the memory clock is 4800MHz. The card needs a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors and has two DVI outputs. The card also has a pair of DisplayPort outputs too. Exactly how much the beast will cost is unknown, but it won't be cheap.
