In order to avoid this pre-overclocked graphics card to become bulky like Palit’s Revolution 700 product, Sapphire has decided to watercool its new baby. This is a nice solution because it makes the card to be one-slot and the max temperature under loading does not exceed 60°C (compared to the reference design that produced 92°C). FurMark has been used for power consumption tests. Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 X2 Atomic ST-6026 is the most powerful graphics card in the market, but this performance comes with a high price: around 600$US.

– GPU: R700 (2 x RV770) @ 800MHz – 1930 millions transistors (2×965) / 55nm
