Hexus heard Sapphire has rolled out an improved version of its Radeon HD 4850 X2 graphics card. The new model is not only faster and quieter, but also a bit cheaper.
If you're still not sure, Sapphire is taking the time to send out a gentle reminder by stating that it's one-of-a-kind card is now better than ever. According to the manufacturer, the card is now in volume production and both 1GB and 2GB models could see prices fall further. In addition, an updated fan-speed profile should keep the card quiet when in 2D mode, and a WHQL-certified driver is now available to download direct from AMD.

We wouldn't go as far as to call what is essentially a software-tweaked version of the same card "faster, quieter and cheaper", in fact, it's currently priced at around £265 - that's around £15 more than a fortnight ago.
