Sapphire’s Nitro + line of video cards has served as the brand’s flagship model for the past few years, but back in the day, the Hong Kong company had models that were even higher up the chain. If we can believe a teaser that Sapphire has put on the Chinese social medium Weibo, we are going to relive old times: there is a hint at new Toxic and Atomic models.
The item in question only contains the word ‘back’ and a photo, in which the letters T and A are shown in yellow. The text next to it can be (roughly) translated to ‘what you expect will come back’. At the bottom left it is stated that there will be a five-day countdown; since the post was posted on February 13th, it looks like we’ll be hearing more on the 18th (Thursday).
By the way, the qr code contains a link to the social network and messaging app WeChat, which cannot be accessed without an account.

Sapphire last released a Toxic card in 2016, namely an overclocked R9 390 that could be unlocked with a bios switch to an R9 390X. Toxic models were often done in black and yellow, which corresponds to this image.
The Atomic line was used for cards shipped from the factory with water cooling. This name was last used on the Radeon HD 7990, in 2013.
It is not the first time that Sapphire hints at new Toxic models: in 2019 a PR manager of the company claimed on Computex that Toxic editions of the first Navi cards would be coming. Unfortunately, that never happened.
