Sapphire HD5850 Toxic 1GB Video Card Review

Rating: 9.0.

The AMD 5xxx series has been a resounding success, dominating the mid/high range sector since it was released many months ago. We wouldn’t be the Guru’s of Kit we proclaim to be if we didn’t take a look at one of the sexiest 5850’s on the market – The Sapphire HD5850 Toxic Edition. This card was released several months ago and is a complete redesign of the AMD reference edition design.

The Sapphire Toxic Radeon HD5850 1GB card is clocked at 765mhz core and 1125mhz (4500mhz effective) on the memory – when compared with the reference 700mhz core and 1000mhz memory speeds … a rather noticeable speed boost.

Sapphire have also included their own cooler which is based around the Vapor-X technology – significantly reducing temperatures and noise while also allowing for further manual overclocking …. if you want to push things to breaking point (and we all do right?).
