Sapphire released a Radeon HD 7870 Toxic 2 GB graphics card based on the 28 nm "Tahiti LE" silicon. The card features factory-overclocked speeds with PowerTune Boost frequencies that likely breach the 1 GHz mark, letting it retain the "GHz Edition" marker. The card uses a swanky new dual-fan cooler that features a design unlike anything launched by Sapphire so far.
It uses a single aluminum fin stack that spans the entire length of the card, to which heat is conveyed by four 8 mm-thick heat pipes that make direct contact with the large 365 mm² Tahiti die. The card also features a back-plate. It appears to use a high-grade VRM with DirectFETs. The HD 7870 Toxic from Sapphire packs 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface, the memory is clocked around 6 GHz, yielding 192 GB/s of memory bandwidth. We're working on getting the GPU clock speed and pricing details - via TPU.

Personally I fail to see why you would need 6GB of graphics memory being tied to one GPU, the regular 3GB already should be aby far sufficient enough. That didn't stop Sapphire to release a
