Deal: HD3870 Toxic for $249 at Newegg

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Toxic HD3870 $249.

Reviving their popular "Toxic" from the X1900 days, Saphire has now released the Toxic HD3870 Single slot card with it's new Vapor-X cooling Technology.
All the accesories of the Atomic, but, no cool metal briefcase and the clocks aren't as high.

SAPPHIRE Technology has just announced global availability of its exciting new HD 3870 TOXIC edition high performance graphics accelerator.

The SAPPHIRE HD 3870 TOXIC version features the award winning - and SAPPHIRE exclusive -Vapor-X single slot cooler, SAPPHIRE’s implementation of Vapour Chamber Technology (VCT). This advanced cooling solution provides more efficient and quieter cooling allowing the TOXIC 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.

The SAPPHIRE HD 3870 TOXIC has 512MB of high performance GDDR4 memory, clocked at 1152MHz (2.3GHz effective) and the GPU core is pre-overclocked at 800MHz. Supporting the new CrossFireX technology, two high speed connectors on each card allow 2 (now) and 3 or even 4 graphics cards (with a future driver release) to be daisy-chained together for enhanced performance when installed in a CrossFireX mainboard ...

Sapphire has decided to revive its famous Toxic series, as the last card in this series was X1950 XTX and was water-cooled.
This time Sapphire's HD 3870 Toxic will feature Vapour Chamber cooling previously seen on the Atomic series card. ...
Compared to the Atomic:
The cooler is basically the same, the only difference between Sapphire's Toxic and Atomic HD 3870 cooler is that Atomic's cooler has temperature monitoring and speed regulation. Toxic's cooler uses a two-pin connector for the fan while Atomic has a four-pin connector.
...As mentioned, the Toxic card works at 775MHz for the core and 1125MHz for 512MB of GDDR4 memory. These clocks are way below the highly overclocked Atomic version, which works at 825MHz for the core and 1200MHz for the same 512MB of GDDR4 memory.

High-end single slot would be handy for multi-card configs, but dual slot vents air better, for $50 cheaper. HIS IceQ cards can get 850/2400.
