A Vapor X version of the AMD/Ati Radeon HD 5870 will be released soon. PC Games Hardware presents some pictures and specifications of the new design.
The popular Sapphire Vapor X series has grown again. After we had just been informed that the Chinese company will provide the middleclass DirectX 11 model Ati Radeon HD 5750 with the popular cooling concept first information leaked that AMD's new top model Ati Radeon HD 5870 will have the Vapor X cooler as well. Meanwhile first pictures and detailed specifications of the new card can be found in the internet.
Compared with the reference model the proven Vapor Chamber Technology of the Sapphire cooler will provide an even more efficient ventilation. Up to now Vapor X coolers usually have enabled lower sound volumes.
