Sapphire HD 3870 TOXIC, shown at CeBIT, turned out to be even faster than promised
Shortly before the CeBIT 2021 exhibition, it became known about the Sapphire HD 3870 TOXIC video adapter, which uses the original Vapor-X cooling system. Recall that the principle of this cooling system is based on the use of the so-called “evaporation chamber” (Vapor Chamber Technology, VCT), due to which it is possible to combine compact dimensions and high efficiency.
High efficiency of the cooling system allows to increase the clock speed of the GPU and GDDR4 memory installed on the board. According to preliminary data, the core frequency was chosen equal to 800 MHz, memory – 1152 MHz (effective value – 2.3 GHz). As you know, reference products are clocked at frequencies of 775 and 1125 MHz, respectively.
The opportunity to see the Sapphire HD 3870 TOXIC board live is now available to visitors to CeBIT 2021, among whom is our correspondent. According to the data received from him, the memory frequency indicated in the product specifications is even higher than expected. As you can see in the second illustration, it is 1172 MHz.
However, the memory of serial products, most likely, will operate at a frequency of 1152 MHz – this is the value that was set on the board we tested.
