HIS rolls out passive Radeon HD 6570

Written by Slobodan Simic

With 2GB of memory
HIS has announced its latest addition to the HD 6000 series lineup, a passively cooled HD 6570 with 2GB of DDR3 memory.

Although we don't see a point in squeezing in 2GB of DDR3 memory on such a card, we must say that the low-profile and passive heatsink are a welcome feature in case you are looking for an HTPC card. The new HIS HD 6570 packs 480 stream processors and works at 650MHz for the GPU and 1000MHz for those 2GB of DDR3 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface.

The card is tightly packed on a low-profile PCB and uses a passive heatsink that covers the front and the back of the card. The backplate features one DVI, HDMI and D-Sub output and we guess that the card will ship with low profile bracket. The heatsink itself is a bit taller than the card so it might have some clearance issues with some low-profile cases.

The card should hit retail/e-tail pretty soon and the price should be somewhere around US $100.

Nice. This, with 2GB of memory, would be great for Hyper-V server that needs to support multiple dual-screen clients with RemoteFX settings. It does not have a display port, so it is not targeting Eyefinity user group. And I don't think they targets HTPC folks either, unless RAM is just so dang cheap that it does not make sense to include anything smaller than 2GB.

Edit: I don't have a HTPC, so perhaps someone can shed some light on that.

It would probably make more sense to release a 1GB GDDR5 card instead. This is still the same card as their HD5570 with 2GB (HIS H557HO2G) but now with the newer HD6570 GPU.

If you don't know about hardware, you'll buy this.

Quite simple, I suppose for those working in offices on multi monitor setups, this is great.

Even with multiple high resolution monitors, they would not fill even 512mb of memory if all they are showing are a few MS office/browser windows...
They are not putting 2GB of memory because it improves performance, they are doing it because it is easy to market to the poor saps who don't know any better. 90% of the time, 512mb of gddr5>2gb ddr3, at least on a card this slow.

Looks decent, would be nice to see this put together with a Llano A8, and see how it performs.
