Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 and HD 5850 Smile for the Camera

Admin Topics 161

Here are the fist pictures of Sapphire’s Radeon HD 5800 series offerings: Radeon HD 5870 1GB and Radeon HD 5850. The cards sport the usual sticker design of a CGI girl in a reddish background. With these cards having the cosmetic “red-streak” cleaving the cooler shroud in the center, the so is the sticker.

This is also perhaps the first public picture of the Radeon HD 5850, and our size projections were right: While the Radeon HD 5870 maintains a long PCB, the HD 5850 is about as long as a Radeon HD 4870 (reference design). Both accelerators stick to the reference AMD design.
