The Sapphire PGS AMD FirePro W9000 is, on paper, the fastest workstation GPU on the market. How does it fare during our testing?
Sapphire's low-profile, single-slot Radeon HD 7750 graphics card, which we've been tracking since Computex 2012 (June), is finally launched. The card uses an active fan-heatsink to cool the 1.5 billion transistor GPU, and is designed for HTPCs and SFF PCs in general.
Don't worry, we're not talking about toxicity (as in crayons) here. Sapphire launched a pair of new Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition graphics cards based on the same Vapor-X cooling solution as its recently-launched HD 7970 TOXIC, but with AMD reference clock-speeds.
Sapphire launched its flagship graphics card, the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition Toxic 6GB. The card has been in development for over six months, and we've been tracking it all the way back since CES. It combines a 28 nm "Tahiti" chip on steroids, with 6,144 MB of memory. Yeah, that much!
Sapphire announced the Radeon HD 7870 FleX with Dual-X graphics card. It features a reconfigured display output logic, which supports up to three DVI monitors, without needing active DP-DVI adapters. The card also features the company's Dual-X cooling solution.
We knew from way back in December 2011, that Sapphire is working on custom-design Radeon HD 7970 graphics card models with some crazy factory-overclocked speeds. The company today reiterated that it's working on some of those models, but that the SKU is changed from HD 7970 to HD 7970 GHz Edition. A little more than
While the volumes aren't high, most vendors had enough to show at least a sample of GTX680 – and occasionally a GTX690 – on their booths, while AMD gunned for higher clock revisions and more memory.
Intel's B75 chipset appears to be popular with the motherboard makers, least not as a replacement for the H61 chipset for Ivy Bridge. As such, Sapphire has snuck out a new model based on said chipset called the Pure White B75M-MA which should end up being a very affordable board judging by the features.
Even though AMD launched Radeon HD 7970 back in December 22, 2011, it took Sapphire months to perfect their completely custom design in order to create the ultimate HD 7970: Meet the new Sapphire Toxic HD 7970.
With less than a week to go until the official launch of Intel's new 7-series chipset, the first pictures of Sapphires upcoming Pure Platinum Z77 motherboard has appeared and one thing is certain, it's not the same board as the one that was touted as the Pure Black Z77 back at CES in January. The
Having chatted with Sapphire back at CeBIT a couple of weeks ago, we knew the company is planning on taking a slightly different direction for its future motherboard products and the Pure Platinum A55V looks like it's a step in that direction. What we're looking at is a fairly basic motherboard for AMD's APUs, without
It's funny how one product can lead to a new and quite different product and in the case of Sapphire the company feels that it's Vapor-X graphics card coolers have been so popular that it's highly likely that we'll see CPU coolers using the Vapor-X technology from the company. As such the company was demoing
One of the most frustrating things when you're at a trade show isn't the crowds, the noise of even the bad lighting when you're trying to take pictures, but actually the Perspex used to cover the hardware, so apologies for the fairly poor pictures of Sapphire's otherwise utterly and totally over the top graphics cards.
Coming almost a month after the launch of the AMD Radeon 'Tahiti XT' HD 7970 and the 'Graphics Core Next' architecture, the Radeon 'Tahiti Pro' HD 7950 is essentially a stripped down version (87.5%, 1792 out of 2048 Stream Processors) of its more illustrious sibling . The extra lead time and lower TDP requirements has allowed the usual
All the boards in our roundup today feature the reference PCB design of the Radeon 'Tahiti XT' HD 7970, with differences only in the pre-programmed default clock speeds, cooling solution, bundled software/accessories, warranties and most crucially, price. We help our readers to make an informed choice…
We tend to be skeptical about AMD or NVIDIA claiming stellar overclocking capabilities of their upcoming GPUs, but this time, it seems AMD wasn't playing the same old PR games. Sapphire is readying a non-reference design HD 7970 graphics card that boasts of 1335 MHz GPU clock speed. Out of the box!
When it comes to its range of motherboard products, Sapphire has been quite slow to bring new products to market and today the company finally announced its AM3+ motherboard, the Pure Black 990FX. However, we have details of three additional motherboards alongside with pictures, all of which we're expecting should arrive before the end of
Although known more for its AMD Radeon graphics cards, Sapphire always tried to make inroads to the motherboard industry. Not that there are any major hurdles in its way, given that it has a cash-rich OEM (PC Partner) pulling its strings. Come LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E HEDT platform, and Sapphire is out for its slice yet
It's easy to forget that Sapphire makes motherboards, as the company isn't exactly making a lot of noise about its motherboard products. The company has sneaked out yet another new model and this time we're looking at its second AMD A75 motherboard, the Pure Platinum A75P. This is a lower-end version to the Pure Platinum
Sapphire has released the HD 6950 TOXIC Edition, which at 880MHz core clock is supposedly the fastest factory overclocked HD 6950 in the world.
