Sapphire decided that it wasn’t happy with the Radeon HD ‘s standard cooler and decided to make something better. We have a look at the fastest of the two cards being released – the ATI Radeon HD – to find out if makes up for lost ground with the HD series. They will not be making anything for the x2. This cm long videocard uses a dual slot cooling solution and may prove especially unmanageable in cases that have hard drives mounted parallel to the videocard, rather than perpendicular. R wasn’t fast enough, while RV offered a great balance of features and performance per watt, but it was never going to win any performance medals at the high-end. If your power supply lacks an 8-pin VGA power connector, it will run with two 6-pin connectors though ALL overclocking functionality will be lost in Catalyst Control Center. You can see this large chip, which needs no cooling, through the heatsink of the first RV core.
