Sapphire’s HD 7770 Vapor-X Black Diamond Graphics Card
According to TechpowerUp, the Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 Vapor-X Black Diamond comes at a tempting price point which would attract buyers during the Lunar Year Shopping Season. Technically, the card features a new designed Vapor-X Black cooler which comes with a vapor chamber heatsink equipped with 8mm copper heatpipes that are cooled off by two 80 mm PWM fans. Sapphire equips the Radeon HD 7770 Vapor-X Black Diamond with a black colored non-reference PCB that uses noise free chokes and a few added power phases.
Sapphire did make a non-reference PCB for their new card but the GPU stil sicks with AMD’s reference clock speeds for the Radeon HD 7770 with the core operating at 1000 MHz and the memory at 1250 MHz (5000 MHz Effective). The GPU has 1 GB of Vram running across a 128-bit interface and display ports include Dual-DVI, HDMI and a display port. Power is provided through a single 6-Pin connector.
