More recently the SAPPHIRE product range has been extended to include a broad range of mainboards and a number of solutions including the award-winning SAPPHIRE EDGE Series of Mini PCs.

This year, SAPPHIRE celebrates 10 years of trading, bringing our successful mix of innovation and customer satisfaction to the global market. During that time we have introduced a number of innovations to the graphics market that are still reflected in our product line-up today.


Landmarks

SAPPHIRE was the first company to offer silent heatpipe cooling on a production card and we still offer that option on several of our models – known as the ULTIMATE series.

Enthusiasts like performance to be maximised – and SAPPHIRE was the first company to offer an enthusiast range with special coolers, not only pre-overclocked, out of the box but with extra headroom for even more performance tuning – these are the features of our TOXIC family.

Overclocking some of our early cards was achieved in software with a tool called TriXX. Now TriXX has been updated to a more comprehensive tool that allows overclockers to adjust both clocks and voltages as well as monitor temperature on most of our high end HD 5000 and HD 6000 series cards. It is available to download free here.

Vapor Chamber cooling is a specialist technology, first used in high performance computers like compact servers, where it is critical to get heat away quickly from key components. SAPPHIRE was the first company to apply this technology to graphics processors with its Vapor-X cooler on the amazing ATOMIC model in the HD 3870 family – at the same time achieving another first with a high performance card with integral cooler that fitted in a single graphics slot. This technology is so efficient that it continues to be used on our award winning TOXIC and Vapor-X series of cards.

And innovation reaches right down to component level, where SAPPHIRE’s Black Diamond chokes, with integrated ferrite coolers help to run our voltage regulation circuits cooler even under heavy load. These are complemented by other component choices, such as solid electrolyte capacitors on our high end models for increased reliability.

Quality and reliability is just as critical as innovation – and SAPPHIRE has been a leader in meeting high manufacturing standards and the latest regulations, such as lead-free assembly and the recycling directives such as ROHS and WEEE. Of course, SAPPHIRE goes a step further, and for several years we have been using recyclable materials in our packaging, and our innovative environmentally friendly paper pulp trays for many models.

With higher and higher levels of component integration, motherboards are increasingly important – and SAPPHIRE is strengthening its presence in this sector and bringing new design expertise as well as its experience in graphics to bear on the latest generations of products.

As a launch partner for AMD Fusion, SAPPHIRE delivered products which helped to bring the exciting capabilities of the APU to the channel market. APUs combine - on a single chip - a powerful CPU, interface circuitry equivalent to a Northbridge and a DX11 graphics core equivalent to a desktop level graphics card, as well as a universal video decoder for the accelerated decoding of HD and Blu-ray content. This highly integrated solution forms the heart of a new generation of PC products.

SAPPHIRE has demonstrated this by introducing the Mini-PC Edge HD – one of the smallest PCs in the world. Since its original successful launch, new models based on Fusion technology offer even more advanced levels of performance – and push SAPPHIRE into the living room and office space with an award-winning solution.

SAPPHIRE continues to deliver mainboards for the enthusiast sector, compatible with the latest AMD and Intel technology. They feature a strong ID for the enthusiast sector, with their Black PCB, stylised chipset coolers and adopt many of the successful features from SAPPHIRE’s performance graphics segment, such as the solid capacitors and Black Diamond chokes. Aware of enthusiast requirements, the boards feature many performance tuning options; including Dual BIOS, debug display, Push buttons (Start / reset / BIOS) and even Voltage test points on some models.

But these are just the highlights of a top to bottom line-up – whether its graphics or mainboards, SAPPHIRE is aware that there is a volume market for mainstream products, and continues to provide a wide choice of performance levels – and price – for the wider global demand.

Sapphire Radeon HD-7900 series Cards Information

 

toxic-box.jpg

 

SAPPHIRE Technology has just announced its HD 7970 6GB TOXIC Edition graphics card boasting the highest clock speeds in its class

and believed to be the fastest single GPU graphics card in the world.

 

http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/media/?psn=0004&articleID=4602

The SAPPHIRE HD 7970 6GB TOXIC Edition is a limited edition product that will be available to order from SAPPHIRE etailers and retailers from 17th July 2012

Due to the strict engineering tolerances this card will be released in very limited quantities, so getting hold of one might be difficult.

As a engineering showcase Sapphire have managed to release the fastest single GPU card on the market. We don’t think this will be beaten for quite some time.

http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/sapphire__toxic_hd7970_6gb/

 

Until today, the incredible KFA2 GTX680 Limited OC Edition claimed the ultimate single GPU performance spot,

however in the majority of the real world game testing, the Sapphire HD7970 6GB Toxic Edition managed to outperform the overclocked GTX680.

The reference clocked GTX680 doesn’t even factor into making a viable challenge.

TechPowerUp Review out ... http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Sapphire/HD_7970_Toxic_6_GB/1.html

 

Quote:

Thanks to a massive overclock out of the box, the HD 7970 Toxic delivers outstanding performance results for a HD 7970. In our testing, the card ends up 11% faster than the HD 7970 reference design, 3% faster than the HD 7970 GHz Edition and 4% faster than GTX 680. If that's not enough for you, you can use the card's dual-BIOS feature to switch to an extreme BIOS called "Lethal Boost", increasing clocks and voltages even further. The Lethal Boost BIOS provides an extra 5% performance boost on top of the card's already very good performance, making the card faster than any single-GPU card we ever tested.

 

With a maximum clock of 1275 MHz, the card reaches the highest clock speeds of all HD 7970 cards we ever tested by quite a large margin. Memory overclocking works well and reaches 1885 MHz, which is the second highest we've seen.

 

If you want the absolute fastest single-GPU card, have the money ($700) and can stand the noise, you should definitely consider the Sapphire HD 7970 Toxic !!!

Most graphics cards based on AMD technology require the third monitor in an Eyefinity set-up to be a DisplayPort monitor, or connected with an active DisplayPort Adapter. The SAPPHIRE FleX family can support three DVI monitors in Eyefinity mode and deliver a true SLS (Single Large Surface) work area without the need for costly active adapters. The first two monitors are connected to the two DVI ports and the third to an HDMI to DVI cable (supplied) with no extra hardware required. The SAPPHIRE HD 6950 FleX is now the highest performing card with this feature, allowing gamers to use low-cost DVI monitors for all three screens. Additional monitors can be added to the setup, but must be DisplayPort connected. Like the standard HD 6950, the SAPPHIRE HD 6950 FleX Edition boasts true DX 11 capability and the powerful configuration of 1408 stream processors and 88 texture processing units. With its clock speeds of 800MHz for the core and 1250Mhz (5 Gb/sec effective) for the memory this model brings multi-screen enjoyment to even hard-core gamers.

UNLOCKING & OVERCLOCKING your SAPPhIRE 6950 into a 6970 (Click to show) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
 
SAPPhIRE's 110.gif is the optimal performance overclocking utility for your AMD RADEON graphics card,
allowing you to monitor, tune & save different settings of key parameters for the card. www.sapphireselectclub.com/ssc/TriXX/TriXX.aspx
 

 

The SAPPhIRE HD-6950 Edition of Graphics Cards have the highest successful UNLOCK rate of any Non-Reference HD-6950's on the market today, With the TOXIC edition being at somewhere between 75-90%, and they are also the easiest HD-6950 card's to attempt to unlock the 6970's shader as it's already on the 2nd BIOS from the SAPPhIRE Factory and all you have to do is flip the switch to find out if your GPU Chip will unlock or not. Just Follow my Step-by-Step Guide below ...

Step #2 - You can install the CD software, but to be honest the WIN 7 driver the system auto loads for you should work too, so you could skip to Step 3 I guess ?
 
Step #3 - With things running, install GPU-Z and/or TriXX software or both ... then open the programs to review the Factory defaults of your card, note shaders and Core clocks etc.
 
Step #4 - In GPU-Z or TriXX SAVE your factory BIOS of the card. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. You might just need it in case something goes wrong and need to reinstall the factory BIOS file in case position #2 Unlocked BIOS FAILS, and flipping the switch back to position #1 won't reload the original BIOS for some reason. THIS shouldn't happen, but better SAFE and SAVED than sorry and SOL.
{Note: If you don't know HOW to save the BIOS, in GPU-Z you click on the Little GREEN Arrow to the far Right of the BIOS version number}
 
Step #5 - Shut Down Windows and turn off your Computer.
 
Step #6 - FLIP the little Dual BIOS switch near the back plate / SLI Bridge area to position #2.
 
15-1.jpg
 
Step #7 - Turn on Computer and reboot up.
 
Step #8 - Re-open TriXX and/or GPU-Z and check your Shaders ... if it's 1536, CONGRATS your card UNLOCKED and you have a HD-6970 now no BIOS FLASH required it's ON the card from Sapphire ... if it's still 1408, Bummer dude no Factory Un-Lock , you could still then try FLASHING it to Unlock it, but YES this can be slightly risky and CAN void your warranty if you BRICK the card by Flashing it, most likely you have a card that Will NOT unlock, remember it's NOT 100% Guaranteed.

The SAPPhIRE HD-6950 TOXIC Edition is the FASTEST production HD-6950 on the market today, it comes Factory OverClocked to 880 MHz core / 1300 MHz memory clocks. However it doesn't stop there, the TOXIC can be pushed much further with additional overclocking by the end user, Just Follow my General OC'ing Guide below to see how far you can go ...

 

Sapphire HD-6950 Basic OverClocking Guideline, Thanks to LA_Kings_Fan

First off ... Keep in mind I wrote this Guideline mainly for my HD-6950/70 TOXIC Club so your Clock Speeds may vary ... 

 

Also I used TriXX ... DownLoad for FREE here = ( www.sapphireselectclub.com/ssc/TriXX/TriXX.aspx )

... it's Sapphire's own product, it's free download off Sapphire's website, and it does everything and MORE that MSI Afterburnner or other 3rd party Utilities can.

Also PLEASE keep in mind it's different for each individual Graphics Card / GPU chip. Same like CPU OverClocking, some get lucky and can push it to the Limit, while others get a dud that are barely good for anything over factory stock, it's the luck of the draw and can be hit or miss, so only use these numbers as a general Guideline towards your OC'ing efforts.

As you know the Sapphire HD-6950 TOXIC cards come FACTORY over clocked at 880 MHz Core clock, and 1300 MHz Memory clocks, and you should have a VERY GOOD (66-85%) chance at Un-Locking the Shader Clocks to 1538, or very close to Stock HD-6970 levels of 880 / 1375 / 1536.

IF you haven't already done it, the first thing I'd do is see if that card can UnLock or not ... use my Step-by-Step Guide as outlined Above.

Or here - http://www.overclock.net/amd-ati/1136272-unlocked-sapphire-hd6950-dirt3-edition-6.html#post15253189, it's easy and can UnLock a potential 5-10% boost in performance.

NOW, as for OC'ing the TOXIC even more, you should be able to be stable at stock voltage, which is already at 1.175v, somewhere within ...
= 900-960 MHz Core Clocks
= 1375-1450 MHz Memory Clocks
= Shaders Unlocked to 1538 via the BIOS Switch of course

with a slight bump up to 1.25v MAXIMUM don't over-volt above this, you should be close to the cards limits at ...
= 960-1000 MHz Core Clocks
= 1450-1500 MHz Memory Clocks
= Shaders Unlocked to 1538 via the BIOS Switch of course

I'd also suggest you review OrangeBunnies Sapphire 6950 Toxic 2GB Overclocking & Unlocked thread.

ALSO this OverClockersClub Review I think took the TOXIC to it's outter most limits and he got lucky with a very strong GPU chip, but he got the TOXIC to 1010 MHz core clock & 1500 MHz Memory clocks.

 

Originally Posted by OverClockersClub Review
I might add! I was able to get the core to 1030 MHz and memory to 1550 MHz, but that required 1.3v and the performance increase didn't warrant the additional voltage and in some cases, hurt performance.
Originally Posted by Bojamijams View Post

The memory on the 6950/70 has ECC so if you clock it too high to have errors, it'll automaticlaly downlock itself. So while you might think that you have an incredible card that can do 5.8ghz effective on memory, it may very well be slower then if you did 5.6ghz.
Make sure you benchmark.
Also if Furmark is causing your GPU clocks to go down, that means you're hitting the TDP limit and the BIOS that you have is the old one that requires PowerTune in CCC to be set to 20%.

Love Sapphire, they seem to be one of the most reliable ATI partners out there. They're always one of the first ones I recommend (Sapphire, PowerColor, Asus).

Have a Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 1GB (heatpipe edition). It had overheating problems for a long time because of incorrectly applied TIM (seems to be a problem with this particular card), recently reapplied the TIM and my core temp went down by 15C. Now I've got it stable at 839/975.

Yay!

It'd be kinda stupid if they DIDN'T allow that. Hahaha.


Anyways, add me. Saphire 5770, will hopefully get to do some Crossfire when I get my EP45-UD3P, money permitting.

I have a 2600XT purring away in another machine. Great little card, it still works like the day I bought it.



I apologize the only image I have is next to a Diamond product.
