The second watercooled card to show up is from Sapphire and it's called the HD 2900 XT Toxic. This one differs from the one we've already seen from MSI in many ways. First of all and most importantly, this is a single slot card and does as such take up a lot less space than the card from MSI. The radiator, fan, reservoir and pump all slots into two 5.25in bays in the front of your system, so make sure you've got a suitable case before going for this solution.



The big advantage of the Sapphire solution this time is that it's modular. This means that you can add a second card to the same radiator, fan, reservoir and pump, which allows for a very neat installation if you're only planning on watercooling your graphics cards. Although no clock speeds have been given for the card, the press release stated that the core should be overclockable by at least 15% with this cooling solution. Can't wait to see these puppies in action.
