SAPPHIRE have just launched a limited edition HD 3870 graphics card under their "ATOMIC" branding which features SAPPHIRE's own implementation of Vapour Chamber Technology (VCT).


Clock speeds on the card are 825MHz on the GPU and 2.4GHz on the 512MB of GDDR4 memory.


You can learn more about the card and its advanced cooling solution within the announcement here, and Techpowerup have posted up more shots of the card here.


The SAPPHIRE HD 3870 ATOMIC version features an exciting new single slot cooler - the first in the world to feature Vapor-X - SAPPHIRE's implementation of Vapour Chamber Technology (VCT). This advanced cooling solution provides more efficient and quieter cooling allowing the ATOMIC edition to ship overclocked out of the box, and to allow enthusiasts even more scope for performance tuning. The single slot design allows the use of multiple cards in the latest CrossFireX configurations even where PCI-Express slots are sited closely together.
