Sapphire Unveils 4GB Radeon HD 5970

The fastest single graphics card at the moment is undoubtedly ATI's dual-GPU Radeon HD 5970. It's so powerful that it can run the notorious Crysis Warhead at full HD resolution with all effects turned on. Nevertheless, that has not stopped ATI's partners from pushing the boundaries. This is Sapphire's latest concoction, a factory-overclocked, 4GB-touting, Radeon HD 5970 with a massive triple fan cooler.

EXPreview - As we expected, Sapphire has pulled off the curtain of its 4GB Radeon HD 5970 at CeBIT, getting ready to compete against NVIDIA’s upcoming graphics cards.

The I/O panel features two dual-link DVIs plus one mini DisplayPort output.

Should be really quick. To read more and to see more photos of the card, click here.
