October 15 - Toxic Overclocked

You may already know about the Sapphire X1900XTX Toxic GPU. It's an ordinary Radeon X1900XTX, but with one major difference. No fan. 'WHAT?' you say, no fan? No. Just in-built watercooling, which is one of the reasons that to many lazy enthusiasts, the Toxic is the best card available. To all you lazies out there that I'm reffering to (I admit, I am one of you!), then you'll be pleased to hear that Sapphire have just taken the wrapping of their latest additions to the Toxic family. The Sapphire X1950XTX Toxic & Sapphire X1950XTX Toxic Crossfire (Oh yeah! Get in there!) are overclocked, watercooled versions of the normal X1950XTX series. The 1900XTX was very overclockable if you did it right, and to take laziness one step further, Sapphire has obliged to do it for you on the X1950XTX Toxics. The 'fastest add-in board on the planet runs at 695Mhz as opposed to the stock speed of 650Mhz. Apparently, this isn't as far as the Toxic can go, but Sapphire declined to say quite how far it could go. Phase-Changed case cooling and a few extra fans blowing onto it can't go wrong though! With 512MB of GDDR4 cooling, 48 pixel shaders and 16 pixel processing pipelines, the new Toxics race through any and every game that challenges them. So far, 3DMark06 has been obliterated by the cards, and that in itself, is quite something.

The cards are set to ship next week for round abouts £380/$550.
