Sapphire's New Low-Profile Radeon R7 240 is Tiny

Sapphire has announced a new graphics card. Unlike many of its very monstrous and powerful graphics cards, this one is intended to be used in small form factor PCs and HTPCs, making it very small.

The Sapphire R7 240 Low Profile is, as its name indicates, a low-profile graphics card.

The GPU aboard the graphics card features a total of 320 GCN cores, and is clocked at a base frequency of 730 MHz, though it can boost up to 780 MHz dynamically. The GPU addresses 2 GB of DDR3 memory, which is clocked at an effective speed of 1.8 GHz and runs over a 128-bit memory interface.

I/O connectivity is taken care of by two HDMI 1.4a ports, and nothing more. They are also covered by a low-profile expansion slot bracket as the default kit.

No word on pricing or availability yet.

    if it has the GTX750Ti level of performance then it will be the perfect gpu for HTPC build

    Performance-wise it'd only be around a 6670, which is about a third or less than that of a 750 Ti
