Sapphire announces HD 7870 XT with Boost

Tahiti LE with a twist


Sapphire has rolled yet another HD 7800 series graphics card. Back when rumour about Tahiti LE based Sapphire graphics card appeared, we were told by our sources that there are no plans to come out with a card that is the same as those released by Powercolor and now it looks like Sapphire had a slightly different plan.

The new HD 7870 XT with Boost still has 1280 stream processors, 80 texture units and features a 256-bit memory interface. The new HD 7870 XT with Boost works at 925MHz base and 975MHz Boost clock for the GPU and features 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1500MHz (6GHz effective).

The new card is cooled by Sapphire's new Dual-X cooler with graduated heatpipes and two aerofoil fans with dust repelling bearings. It comes with DVI, HDMI and two mini-DisplayPort outputs and Sapphire's own Trixx overclocking software that supports fine GPU voltage, core and memory clocks and manual fan control.

Unfortunately, the precise release date or the price have not been announced but we are sure that it will show up in retail/e-tail pretty soon.
