Introduction:

Precious gems seem to attract anyone and everyone, but one has always been a favorite of mine and that is a genuine sapphire. Just the pure blue color of it grabs my attention even more than a diamond. Sapphire Technology has just released one of their newest gems, the long anticipated Sapphire HD 2900 XT, a video card based on ATI’s newest R600 GPU chipset. The R600 chipset was originally planned for release in early 2007, but setbacks have pushed back its release. Hopefully, this extra time has allowed AMD/ATI to make the R600 the best it can be. The Sapphire HD 2900 XT is a DirectX 10 video card that will finally give some competition to nVidia’s DirectX 10 series GPUs.

Sapphire Technology is ATI’s largest and best performing partner worldwide. Sapphire is known for their commitment to delivering the most feature rich and soundly engineered products. Sapphire Technology is not only a manufacturer of graphics cards, they also produce a variety of motherboards to compliment your system. Sapphire Technology produces products to satisfy the needs of all users...from enthusiast to the basic home user.


Closer Look:

Packaging, packaging, packaging, the mixture of the blues and grays along with the phantom on the box screams out pick me up, I’m here. Amazing! The clear plastic panel insert shows you what is hidden inside, while the rear of the box further attracts your interest with product highlights and a peek of what you'll find inside the box.
