Sapphire HD 5870 gets 2GB of DDR5

Sapphire Technology has announced 2GB TOXIC and 2GB Vapor-X additions to its HD 5870 series.

The Sapphire HD 5870 2G Toxic Edition is factory overclocked to speeds of 925MHz core and 1225MHz (4.9GHz effective) memory and the larger 2GB frame buffer gives extra advantage in some demanding applications.

The Toxic Edition is fitted with Sapphire’s Vapor-X cooler, as is the 2G Vapor-X Edition which ships with the clocks defaulting to 850MHz engine and 1200MHz memory (4.8GHz effective).

Both models are based on ATI's DX11-capable HD 5870 GPU.
