I would like to thank Sapphire for supplying the review sample.
Sapphire is well known for their full range of AMD-based graphics cards. In recent years, the company has tried to diversify into many areas like mainboards, power supplies, ultra-high resolution displays, pico projectors, and multimedia products. Some of these advances were rather short lived, while others may not really fit the bill of a large graphics card manufacturer. Sapphire has shown that they are capable of creating proper compact systems with the Edge-HD, but they have also stepped their game up with the new VS series. Today, we get to take a look at the VS8. It is the high-end system of the new line.
