Sapphire R7 250 Graphics Card is Passively Cooled

Sapphire has announced a new graphics card, which unlike most graphics cards, is passively cooled. The new Sapphire Radeon R7 250 Ultimate comes with a rather large aluminum heatsink, which should allow the card to operate at nominal speeds without making any noise at all.

The GPU aboard the card is clocked at 800 MHz. Aboard the card users will also find 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, which runs over a 128-bit wide memory interface at an effective speed of 4.5 GHz.

Sapphire's R7 250 Ultimate has support for Eyefinity, 4K screens, as well as AMD's 3D technology. Display outputs include a single Dual-Link DVI port, an HDMI 1.4a port, and a DisplayPort 1.2 port.

The card should be arriving at retailers soon.

    I guess this card is aimed at an HTPC with a 4k display. It seems too weak for gaming, too strong for normal HD video and too silent for a normal office PC. :)

    Sapphire's new graphics card is passively cooled, and thus undoubtedly rather silent.

    Somewhere between DUURRR and witty.
