Sapphire Radeon 6870 Vapor-X
We’ve seen the AMD 6000 series cards offer some great gaming performance at respectable prices. They’re not the giant killers we had hoped but it’s certainly been interesting to watch AMD and Nvidia battle it out, particularly in the mid-range market where most of the sales happen. Nvidia has come on strong lately with their GTX 560 Ti, a card with formidable horsepower and a very attractive price.
Sapphire is a company known for non-reference graphics card designs, and today’s variant is no exception. The Sapphire 6870 Vapor-X features a custom heatsink that brings some very impressive temperature results and low noise levels. Throw in some good overclocking headroom and only a modest price premium, and this card is very attractive. But can it withstand the GTX 560 Ti onslaught?
Let’s take a closer look at the Sapphire Radeon 6870 Vapor-X and find out.
