Sapphire’s Toxic HD 4850 pictured in pretty pixels
Sapphire’s Toxic version of the HD 4850 card has finally been pixellized. Despite our hopes that we would see the VCT (Vapour Chamber Technology) cooler strapped on Sapphire’s blue in-house design PCB, according to the picture, Sapphire has decided to go for Zalman’s cooling solution on this one.
As far as we could tell from the picture, Sapphire’s Toxic HD 4850 will be cooled by Zalman’s VF900-Cu cooler which comes in combination with small aluminum memory heatsinks. The new card uses Sapphire’s blue PCB which is very similar to the reference one, and as the cooler is changed Sapphire had to use a copper heatsink to cool the card’s VRM.
