AMD's current flagship graphics card is the Radeon HD 3870 X2. It comes with two RV670 GPUs on the PCB that run in CrossFire mode. As you can imagine this setup produces quite a bit of heat.

Sapphire who is one of AMD's biggest board partners has always been looking for innovative and exclusive solutions that will give them an advantage over the competiton. The Sapphire HD 3870 X2 Atomic Edition is just another example of that. It comes with a pre-filled, completely self contained watercooling solution on the graphics card. The additional cooling potential that watercooling offers also allows Sapphire to increase the operating frequency of the card.

Not only the card itself has been pimped out, the package itself screams "premium product" with its huge silver metal case and tons of accessories. Of course all this comes at a price. The Sapphire HD 3870 X2 Atomic Edition retails for around $550 with limited quantities available.
