Sapphire announces new HD 6670 card

Written by Slobodan Simic

Single slot and low profile

Sapphire has announced yet another card that will be a part of its venerable HD 6000 series, the Sapphire HD 6670 Low Profile.

As you could have guessed from the name, the card is based on a low profile PCB and aims at the HTPC part of the market. Sapphire also claims that this should be the first and only graphics card available with such specifications with a single slot cooler.

As far as the specs are concerned, the card features 480 stream processors, 24 texture processing units, works at 800MHz for the GPU and features 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4000MHz. The low profile bracket features HDMI, DVI and D-Sub outputs and the entire card is cooled by a combination of small fan and heatsink that covers most of the low profile PCB.

Unfortunately, the precise date or the price haven't been announced, but we guess that it should retail at around €80/US $80 once it hits the e-tail/retail shelves.

.... and still no way to set up custom resolutions in AMD video drivers.

And still you don't know how to do it eh ?

Are you sure the memory is clocked at 4000MHz? I think it's should say that the effective memory clock is 1000MHz (4.0Gbps). I haven't seen DDR5 memory that clocks at 4000MHz.

am i blind or isn't that dual slot due to the ancient vga port?

The way i do it is to goto digital flat panels section, then click HDTV support. Then click the Add button, brings up an overlay where you can set it to whatever you want. then you simply select it from the list next to the add button and click apply format. not hard if you spend more then 3 seconds looking at the prgram.

It runs at 1000mhz but in each tick it reads/writes 4 times, therefore it runs at an effective speed of 4000mhz when compared to DDR. this has been the way alot of people have said it for a while now.

nah, your eyes still work. that 2nd slot is removable (but if you want to use VGA i am assuming that you would then be required to use a full height bracket (all my half height cards came with the other bracket in the box, so i am assuming this would be the case here also).

also the cable is easy to remove if you are noit after the port

You are very welcome to point me to a link that shows how to do it... and fiddling with PowerStrip doesn't count.

"selecting from a list", as explained above, doesn't count either. I want to choose the resolution I want, as it can be done in Nvidia control panel.
