The Flex Edition series of video cards from Sapphire was a series that I wasn't sure would ever take off. To be honest, from a sales point of view, I have no idea how they've done, but they're obviously doing okay for Sapphire, as they continue to release more and more models under the Flex Edition name.
If you don't know what exactly the Flex Edition series of cards brings to the table, let us take a minute to share with you exactly what they offer. While most of us know about Eyefinity by now - the ability to run three monitors off a single video card, as what is essentially one big monitor. The biggest downfall to the technology was that it required at least one monitor to be connected via DisplayPort.
What the Flex Edition brought to the table was the ability to run three monitors in Eyefinity, but with DVI as the requirement. It's an option appreciated by a lot of users, especially those who own older monitors or simply don't want to spend the money that is associated with DP based monitors; a connectivity that continues to be far from mainstream at this stage.
Due to the fact that we've already looked at so many HD 7770 cards already, instead of going through the typical benchmark line up, we'll instead just focus on the features. We did run a few tests to give you a basic idea of performance.
Starting off with the box we haven't got anything too unusual. What I do like is that Sapphire gives us a bit of a rundown on what exactly the Flex Edition series is. Along with that, though, you can see the other normal highlights on the box including the model and some of the main features.
