SAPPHIRE reveals the secret behind Vapor-X
SAPPHIRE Technology uses the brand Vapor-X on all its high performance products based on Vapor Chamber Technology. It has just been revealed that the Vapor chamber technology used in SAPPHIRE Vapor-X coolers comes from Microloops. Vapor-X has very efficient heat dissipation, which helps to remove heat quickly from the hottest component on a graphics card – the GPU. Because this heat transfer is so efficient, the device can be cooled with heatsink fans operating with lower speeds, and therefore lower noise. It also allows the GPU to be run at higher speeds – known as overclocking – to deliver increased performance.
“Sapphire Technology was the first graphics card manufacturer to use Microloop’s Vapor Chamber as the cooling device,” confirms Sapphire CEO Mr. KD Au. “We aspire to give our customers a unique product and create a perfect product integrated energy-saving and low noise design. The Sapphire HD3870 launched in 2007 was the world’s first graphics product using Vapor Chamber cooling. It used an ultra-slim 3mm vapor chamber in a single slot graphics card design, which could dissipate 150W heat. Under test in 3D mode, the Sapphire HD3870 single slot cooler with Vapor Chamber achieved lower operating temperatures than the ATI BBA board dual slot cooling design.”
