The HD 6950 with Vapor Chamber cooler
Sapphire added yet another card to its HD 6900 series lineup, the HD 6950 Toxic Edition. The card features AMD's well known Cayman GPU, comes with a decent factory overclock and custom vapor chamber based dual-slot cooler.

The Radeon HD 6950 Toxic Edition packs 1408 stream processors, has a GPU clock of 880MHz and packs 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5200MHz on a 256-bit memory interface. The card also comes with dual BIOS, has an improved digital VRM and features single HDMI, two DVI and two mini-DiplayPort outputs. It, of course, needs 8 and 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors and supports AMD's CrossfireX.

The best part of the card is the custom dual-slot cooler based on the Vapor Chamber design. It has a single blower fan and a new perforated backplate which, combined with the cooler, should improve airflow of the case.

The Radeon HD 6950 Toxic Edition will be available with or without the Dirt 3 bundle and we expect it to show up in retail with a price tag of around €200.
