SAPPHIRE Technology has just announced 2GB TOXIC and 2GB Vapor-X Editions in its award winning SAPPHIRE HD 5870 series. The SAPPHIRE HD 5870 2G TOXIC Edition is factory overclocked to industry leading speeds of 925MHz core and 1225MHz (4.9GHz effective) memory and the larger 2GB frame buffer gives extra advantage in some demanding applications. Fitted with SAPPHIRE’s Vapor-X cooler technology, the TOXIC Edition achieves its world-beating performance whilst working at lower operating temperatures and significantly more quietly than other solutions, and still giving enthusiasts headroom for further performance tuning. The SAPPHIRE HD 5870 2G Vapor-X Edition uses the same core technology, but ships with the clocks defaulting to 850MHz engine and 1200MHz (4.8GHz effective).

5870 2GB Vapor-X

"With a total of 1600 stream processors and 80 texture units and a new 150GB/s memory interface supporting fifth generation GDDR5 memory, the SAPPHIRE HD 5870 Vapor-X Series has twice the computing power of the previous generation. This series is lightning fast with DirectX10.1, DirectX 10 and DirectX 9.0 games and applications, as well as supporting stunning new levels of detail, transparency and lighting effects in new releases of software using DirectX 11. All of this comes with the modest active power consumption of less than 190W – and using Dynamic Power Management the cards have a new super low-power idle mode of 27W."

Im liking these cards
Thanks to Nathan Kirsch

That's a sweet factory OC but Sapphire's 1yr warranty is a JOKE... one of (if not the) worst warranty in the industry I believe and it's sad considering Sapphire is ATi's premier AIB partner.

i went on sapphire's website under warranty http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/support/?cid=3&psn=000203 and found, Sapphire VGA products carry a 2 year warranty with all enquires carried out through your initial place of purchase.

so 2 years, still isn't great but o well.

I want to get these toxic 2gb cards, any tricks or things i can do to get it as they come out. The release is great news but figuring out when a retailer gets them is another thing...

The Toxic-X are beasts..

How long until these make it out onto NewEgg? 2 weeks or so perhaps?

The store I order GPUs from (ncix.com) lists all Sapphire cards as carrying a 1 year warranty.

Also
NB: Warranty may vary from Country/Region and the customer must verify directly with the Sapphire Authorised Dealer/Reseller from where the product was purchased..
I don't like this line from their warranty page. I prefer when a company will offer the same support world wide. Asus warranty is 3 years and they offer voltage control.

Go look at benchmarks and you'll find that the extra 1gb of ram makes no difference unless you are over 1920x1200 resolution. Doesn't even make a difference in GTA IV. So unless your running a resolution over 1920x1200, or a multi monitor setup, get a 1gb version.
