MSI rolls out a low-profile HD 5670
With dual fans
MSI is showing some love for HTPC users with its new DirectX 11 capable R5670-PD512 low profile HD 5670 graphics card.
Based on ATI's Redwood 40nm GPU, the HD 5670 features 400 stream processors, and this time MSI managed to squeeze 512MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface on this low profile PCB. It features Military Class components like All Solid Capacitors and Solid State Chokes, something that we have seen on MSI's latest graphics cards.
The card uses a dual fan cooling solution, which might keep the temps down and hopefully it won't be too noisy, either. The new card comes with D-Sub, DVI and HDMI outputs and should hit retail shelves pretty soon.
