As stated, Sapphire is releasing the "HD 5970 4G TOXIC Edition"

The article can be found here :

Pictures and Specs of the card can be found in the link above.

Note : There are 2 pages in this article.

And a small bit of the news : "The card is cooled by a customised solution from Arctic Cooling with nickel plated heatpipes and fins, featuring three low-noise dual ball bearing fans and developed specially to mate with the SAPPHIRE original design pcb. This efficient solution also provides scope for further performance tuning."

That card would be sweet for some massive eyefinity setups. On a regular resolution on a single monitor you'll get a decrease in performance I bet, compared to the 2GB version.

Nice find. :)

So is this the overclocked version (OCed to 5870 speeds) dubbed the infamous 5990?

It's probably the fastest card, because the only other custom HD 5970 that I know of that has been tested right now is the ASUS RoG Ares HD 5970 4GB version which has its clocks at stock 850MHz/1200MHz, while this card has it at 900MHz/1200MHz.

Now how much faster is it at high resolutions. Im running at 2560x1600 and I bet my 5970's 2GB is more than enough. How much resolution can eat up 4GB?
