[TPU]PowerColor HD 6850 SCS3 Silent Graphics Card Final Iteration Pictured

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Perhaps the fastest silent graphics card in the making, PowerColor's new HD 6850 SCS3 finally taken shape, and will launch soon. The card was spotted first in November 2010, but has since undergone many little changes, particularly with its PCB and components.

I'll bet the marketing will say "With customizable PCI rails to support the 87 pound heatsink, this is more likely to break your case than your motherboad."

Ridiculous.

I'd like to see the back of the card to see what, if any, support is used. I'd also like to see what, if any, heatsinks are included for the rest of the circuitry. If there are anti-bending and adequate heat-removal measures in place it could be an awesome card.

Attached picture since it isn't in the OP.

This thing does NOT weigh more than my Golden Edition. Guaranteed. My heatsink is pure copper and this has what? five heatpipes and some aluminum fins... oh nooooes!

one think for sure though they should make it so if you want you can attach fans i know it ruins the whole entire silent thing but still it would be nice

Well as to who would want this card, as of right now the only ati cards to do 3D regardless of cpu are 6xxx series.

So on some weird level this does make sense for the htpc crowd
