If you look at the sub header it appears that the toxic is a slightly older form of vapor-x.
EDIT: Looking at the sapphire website, the toxic series uses hybrid cooling combining vapor-x with heatsinks, where as the vapor-x series only uses the vapor-x technology and is supposed to run quieter and be cheaper, but it would seem newegg screwed up the pricing scheme so take advantage of it.
Thanks for the reply, hunter. One thing that makes me lean towards the Vapor-X is that the card seems to be smaller (ie shorter).
Plus, the cooler fan looks definitely larger than on the toxic. Does that mean lower temps, or at least a quieter card?
I'm in fact not really concerned about OC performance, more about cool 'n quiet.
Wish I could find a review of the Vapor-X card! All I can find is reviews for the toxic, and for the Vapor-X 2GB which is too much for me.
Bobzzz yeah that's what I'm thinking too (based only on gut feeling though).
You wouldn't happen to have a link? The only ones I could find were about the Vapor-X 2GB card.
Although come think of it, if the only difference is the amount of RAM the temps and noise should be basically the same, right?
EDIT: Finally managed to find a review of the Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 4870 1GB card right here.
Funny how the emphasize that this card is cheaper than the Toxic edition, when I find the exact opposite to be true!
I think I wanna get this card, but I suspect we could see a drop in pricing. It just doesn't make sense that it would cost more than the overclocked Toxic version!
