PowerColor has announced the arrival of a passively cooled HD 7850 graphics card.
PowerColor is rolling out an HD 7850 graphics card, but not just any HD 7850. This one will be passively cooled, thereby featuring no moving parts or producing any fan noise. It will be marketed under the name SC3 HD 7850.
The graphics card features 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, which runs over a 256-bit memory interface at 4.8 GHz, has a core clock speed of 850 MHz, and features DirectX 11.1 compatibility as well as Eyefinity.
The SC3 HD 7850's cooler is made of an array of aluminum fins to which heat is brought through six heat pipes. Furthermore, the graphics card is built using the Gold Power Kit, meaning that it has PowerPAKSO-8's inside as well as Ferrite Core Chokes and solid capacitors.
