New cards from Sapphire keep their cool by using multiple fans
Nobody knows how to chill better than Jeff Bridges and John Goodman from The Big Lewbowski, though Sapphire's willing to give it the old college try, only in a different way. Sapphire today announced a pair of custom cooled Radeon R9 Series graphics cards, the Dual-X R9 280 with two aerofoil fans and graduated heatpipes, and Vapor-X R9 280X featuring the company's new Tri-X triple fan design.
You have to hand it to ASRock for coming up with some funktastic designs lately, like its Z87 Extreme11/ac with a mind boggling 22 SATA ports and its Bitcoin mining boards with support for half a dozen graphics cards. Those are pretty crazy designs, though not everything ASRock builds is aimed at niche audiences. A solid example of that is today's top deal for an ASRock Z87 Extreme6 Motherboard for $150 with free shipping (normally $190 - use coupon code: [EMCWWWL32]). THis sexy slice of silicon is ready to rock the Haswell party high quality parts, a 12-phase power design, and support for overclocked DDR3 speeds north of 2933MHz, to name just a few features.

Sapphire's Edge HD4 mini PC is about the size of a paperback book.
After testing the mini PC waters with its Edge HD series, which is supposedly the "smallest fully featured PC in the world," Sapphire felt motivated to introduce a new, more powerful model. Sapphire's Edge HD4 retains the "stylish outline" of its predecessors, but offers better performance with an Intel Celeron 847 processor. The Celeron brand gives some users the heebie jeebies, but note that this is a dual-core part clocked at 1.1GHz with 2MB of L3 cache and built around Intel's last generation Sandy Bridge architecture. It won't run Crysis, sure, but it shouldn't trip over day-to-day computing chores, either.
Sapphire's latest AMD graphics card sports two fans and dust repellant bearings.
The Mayan calendar tells us the end of the world is nigh (wait until you see what Google has in store), but that didn't stop Sapphire from launching another graphics card. If the world really does come to an end tomorrow, the 'Sapphire HD 7870 XT with Boost' will be the company's last product ever released, and on paper, it doesn't look like a bad way to be remembered.
GPU bragging rights now belong to Sapphire, which claims its new HD 7970 6GB Toxic Edition graphics card features the highest clockspeeds of any consumer grade videocard on the planet. It also has a massive 6GB frame buffer, which is twice as big as your 'run-of-the-mill' Radeon HD 7970 graphics card, if there can be such a thing. Getting back to the clockspeeds, however, this thing comes straight from the factory sporting a 1050MHz GPU (1100MHz via PowerTune Dynamic Boost) and 6000MHz (effective) memory. That's just the beginning.
