Sapphrie 6850 Vapor XIntroduction

Today I’m taking a look at Sapphire’s Vapor X card. A custom PCB with high quality components such as the second generation Black Diamond chokes makes for what should be a great performing and highly overclockable card. The custom Vapor-X cooler has been designed to provide not only cooler temperatures but also much less noise compared to the reference design cooler. Let’s begin!

  • 1 x HDMI 1.4a
  • 2 x Mini-DisplayPort
  • 1 x Single-Link DVI-D
  • DisplayPort 1.2


  • Core Clock: 800 MHz
  • Memory: 1024 MB GDDR5

Box and Bundle

The box is packed with logos, specifications and looks impressive with the blue and checker plate back ground.

The bundle includes:

  • CD driver
  • Installation guide
  • Two Molex to 6 pin adaptors
  • Crossfire bridge
  • DVI to VGA adaptor
  • DIRT 3 coupon
  • HDMI cable
  • Mini DP to DP cable

Not a bad bundle for a card. The adaptors and HDMI cables are useful features to include and the Dirt 3 coupon is also a very welcome gift.
