Sapphire
ABOUT SAPPHIRE
SAPPHIRE Technology offers the broadest range of graphics products based on AMD technology, and caters for the widest spectrum of users. Whilst the industry focus is often on the very highest performance products for the extreme user, SAPPHIRE is just as well known for cost effective products for mass markets and a whole range of solutions for the mainstream user.

Innovation, performance and value for money make SAPPHIRE the graphics supplier of choice. We were the first company to introduce silent cooling solutions based on heatpipe technology – and again first to introduce the revolutionary Vapour Chamber Technology, giving quieter and more efficient cooling to high performance graphics products with our Vapor-X cooling solutions. Product variations such as the high performance SAPPHIRE TOXIC range for the enthusiast and the silent cooled ULTIMATE families offer our users greater opportunities for performance tuning and quiet operation.

More recently, the company has made significant investment in additional resource to strengthen our presence in the mainboard and platform arena, and has already announced exciting new products. Over the years our reputation for quality and reliability has been unrivalled, and there is no better testament to this than the collection of over 2,000 independent press awards we have won worldwide in just the last few years.
