Now you have the chance to win it!
Using a Lian-Li PC-U6 as a base he has created a very unique and eye-catching system powered by an Intel 2500k CPU on one of our SAPPHIRE H67 motherboards. To complement the CPU power, we have also supplied a SAPPHIRE HD 7950 graphics card as well as a 256GB Kingston Hyper X SSD and 4GB of Kingston Hyper X memory.+Continue Reading
“Overclocking this card was fairly easy. With a stock clock of already 50MHz over the 1GHz mark, I wasn’t expecting the card to have much headroom for overclocking in the first place. However, I was able to achieve an overclock of over 200MHz for the core clock. This resulted in a final clock speed of 1257MHz. As for the memory I was able to bring it up to 1331MHz, not too bad for a video card!”

AMD’s 7000 series is made up of 3 segments. Starting with the flagship 7900 which are the high-end cards. Then we have the 7700 series which has budget gamers in mind. Finally we have the 7800 series which sits right in the middle to hit the sweet spot between cost and performance. The 7800 series has 2 cards the 7850 and the 7870, today we are taking a look at the 7850. Not just any 7850 though, the 7850 Overclocked Edition from Sapphire.

I’ve had a home theater PC for the longest time. My first one was just a normal PC that I connected to my TV. From there it has evolved getting smaller and smaller. With the progression of technology it is very impressive what all we can fit in to a small form factor (SFF) PC. Today we will be checking out the smallest form factor PC that I have ever seen! It is smaller than the Zotac ZBOX HD-AD02, Western Digital Live TV Hub and pretty much every other SFF we have got our hands on. Being super small it is still capable of HD playback, has 2GB of DDR3 memory, a 320GB hard drive, 4 USB ports and WiFi. So what is this SFF PC we are talking about? It is the Sapphire Edge HD2, let’s take a look…+Continue Reading
With the recent release of DiRT 3 AMD announced that it would be packing the game with select video cards. Of course Sapphire’s Radeon HD 6950 was one of those cards. From a technical standpoint the Radeon HD 6950 is basically the same card as the original card we reviewed back in December, except Sapphire has improved the cooling solution. They have increased the size of the cooling surface, added 5 copper heatpipes, and finally added a second fan. All of this plus the free game makes this the definite choice when it comes to deciding which Radeon HD 6950 to get. Read on to check out our review!+Continue Reading
