Liquid-cooled SAPPHIRE TOXIC X1950 XTX

Liquid-cooled SAPPHIRE TOXIC X1950 XTX news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

SAPPHIRE have spruced up ATI's flagship X1950XTX graphics card with the release of their new "SAPPHIRE TOXIC X1950 XTX", sporting a self-contained watercooling system previously used on an older X1900XTX based card of theirs.

The lucky lads at Hexus have managed to score one for an exclusive review, and although the review isnt online just yet, they couldnt resist getting some eye candy up of the card for us all.

With a waterblock instead of a hulk of a heatsink, the majority of the boards components are exposed. That's a Rage Theater chip on the left, which means VIVO support. Sapphire says the waterblock itself is pure copper. It's slim enough to allow another expansion card to fit in the next slot, but chances are you'll be saving that space for the radiator. More on that shortly.
