HIS should make this fanless,instead of 2 ugly (and probably,noisy) small fans.
HTPC is all about quiet.

HD6670 is more then just an HTPC graphics card, this one can actually run games at 720P resolution at decent settings

The 6670 is a lower resolution gaming card, not HTPC.

It depends, those 2 fans could run on low RPM, this way they should be more quiet than a single one of them doing the job of both. Because noise in dB is a logarithmic/non linear function, and RPM-Airflow relation isn't linear either.

Which could mean the following (shot in the dark):

-suppose you need max of air flowing
-suppose a single fan of those can provide max air flowing at 1000RPM, and half air flowing at 650RPM, but the fan at 650RPM is inaudible between 0 or -10 dB while being completely audible at 1000RPM 20~30 dB. So then even 3 of those fans at 650RPM should be more quiet than a single one running at 1000RPM

I don't think it would be possible to run the 6670 fanless and keep a low profile design. The two fans aren't probably that noisy though, they likely spin at a relatively low RPM(compared to a single small fan).

yup making a 6670 fanless is a hard task, they are pretty powerful.

To get fan-less you need Heat-Pipes and large wrap around cooler. Then most I've seen like that aren’t half-height so might not fit a bunch on media enclosures and that adds expense. To pack 6770 and 1Gb on a half-height isn’t easy, then control that with a H-P cooler all package in an acceptable envelope that still retains the two slot/ half-height would take engineering and cost cash. This looks to use a straight-forward extrusion… cheap.

If they're smart (HIS and the fans) they'll run separate fans profiles. First fan on for idle and low demands, the second kicks in at load and then both spin up fully under extreme load... and then what’s it matter your gaming a the sound is up anyway or headphones.

If AMD really launches the low end first we may see the 7670 pretty soon here. Since these models always stick to 65watts this will be in for a straight up performance boost. That would put it within a few % of the 6770. Very impressive.

Unsure why this has 1gb of memory, seems a waste for a card seemingly targeted as HTPC and mom box machines.

This + A8-3850 = mini ITX monster.
