Sapphire Releases Overclocked HD 6850 TOXIC Edition

The Sapphire HD 6850 TOXIC Edition has the same internal architecture as the standard model, with 960 stream processors and 48 texture processing units, but clock speeds are increased to 820MHz for the core (+45MHz) and 1100MHz for the memory (+100MHz), promising a boost in performance.

Obviously, the novelty has a custom cooler. And there's also the TriXX overclocking tool available for downloading from the Sapphire Select Club.

The full retail version of the card comes bundled with a CrossFire bridge, a D-Sub adapter, a Mini-DP to DP cable, a 6-pin to 4-pin power cable, and a HDMI 1.4a 1.8-meter cable.
