Sapphire 'Blizzard' Liquid Metal Cooled Graphics Card

May 22nd, 2005 in Technology /

Sapphire Technology Limited, the supplier of ATI-powered graphics solutions, has recently announced a revolutionary new cooling system on its latest family of high end graphics cards - Liquid Metal Cooling.
Built upon a liquid metal technology that is 65 times more thermally conductive than water and requires no moving parts, the new Blizzard range is equipped with the definitive long term cooling solution for the demanding enthusiast.

Liquid Metal is non-toxic, non-flammable, and completely environmentally safe. Sapphire's exciting new cooler is a compact, low-profile design using only one additional PC slot. Filled and sealed, it requires no user intervention, no reservoir or refilling and it is card resident so it requires no additional mounting space. The revolutionary use of an electromagnetic pump means no internal moving parts, low power consumption and delivers near silent operation.

First in the Blizzard range will be the SAPPHIRE Blizzard RADEON X850 XT and Blizzard RADEON X850 XT Platinum Editions. Blizzard delivers the future of gaming with the ability to push blistering frame rates and deliver environments erupting with vibrant colours and highly detailed textures rendered in High-Definition clarity.

Combining Sapphire innovations with game developers' creations, users won't miss a single feature of today's gaming titles. This hardware boasts 16 parallel pixel pipelines, 256MB of GDDR3 memory, and PCI Express interface. From innovative minds working to deliver to users who demand the peak of performance in every aspect of their graphics card, the Sapphire Blizzard RADEON X850 XT Turns the Ordinary into Extraordinary.
