Sapphire Toxic Radeon HD4870 512MB Graphics Card
October 06, 2008

The Basics (continued):

An end view of the Toxic Radeon HD4870 is provided below, where we see a pair of DVI ports surrounding a TV-out connection. The two slot cooler features a slotted expansion bay cover to allow the bulk of the hot air to be exhausted out the back of your computer system.

The final set of images in this section provide an edge view of the top of the card. This not only shows the dual CrossFireX tabs, but also shows how the interesting array of three heatpipes travel from the GPU to more remote locations on the heatsink to help distribute the heat.

Something else you might notice in these edge view images also caught my attention... While I thought it might have been an optical illusion caused by the curved top surface of the cooler's shroud, if you look at the PCB you will see that it is also curved. It appears as if the cooler isn't quite large enough, and by tightening all of the bolts it has pulled the card into the slightest of arcs.

Accessories:

The Sapphire Toxic Radeon HD4870 512MB graphics card comes with all of the accessories shown in the images below. In the below left image we see the hardware related items, which include two 4-pin drive to 6-pin PCI Express power adapters, an s-video to component adapter, a DVI to 15-pin VGA adapter, a DVI to HDMI adapter, an s-video to composite adapter, and a CrossFire bridge. You are all set to send a video signal to just about any type of display, and the included power adapters make sure that as long as your power supply has a high enough rating that it should be able to power this card.

The above right image shows the balance of the accessories. There is a PowerDVD disk, a DVD Suite disk, a drivers disk, a 3DMark Vantage disk, a user's manual, and a disk with Ruby ROM Volume II on it.
