HIS Announces Low-Profile Radeon HD 7750 iCooler Graphics Card

HIS announced the Radeon HD 7750 iCooler low-profile graphics card. The card is designed to provide mid-range DirectX 11 performance to slim form-factor (SFF) PCs, and HTPCs. The card is designed with a half-height PCB, but its active air cooler spans across two expansion slots in your system. To keep its temperatures in check, HIS opted for the older AMD reference GPU clock speed of 800 MHz. AMD recently updated that to 900 MHz. The memory is clocked at 1125 MHz (4.50 GHz GDDR5-effective).

The cooler uses a monolithic aluminum heatsink which cools the GPU, VRM, and memory chips on the obverse side of the PCB. The heatsink is ventilated by two 40 mm fans. HIS claims that the cooling solution has its noise output under 28 dBA. Display connectors include dual-link DVI, HDMI 1.4a, and D-Sub. HIS includes low-profile brackets with the card.

Would rather it have a heat pipe fin type and one PWM fan (this doesn’t appear to have that), a single extrusion and two fans is a little unsophisticated, while I’d bet no thermal pad too the memory chips

If Nvidia’s AIB could come out with the GT640 DDR3 like this and price it at $70 the could be a contender in the HTPC and those media and SFF chassis.

Hm, if and when I have to use a dedicated GPU in my HTPC this is going to be one of my options for sure.

You don't need that much muscle for an HTPC.

But for a supersmall lanparty PC this would be great for CODCS

Past couple of weeks, I think. I think around the same time the reports of the 7970 ghz edition came out.

That being said, there were plenty of board partners coming out with higher clock rates that were over the original stock 800mhz.

What's not clear to me is whether the 900 mhz also run off slot power.

As an aside, I do kind of wish that there were low profile 7750's that used fanless designs.

Going LP fanless on a 45W GPU ain't easy...

Yea wouldn't be to bad, but i do prefer a cooler that blows the heat out the back of the case :)

I know, but silent/fanless 7750's do exist but they are not low profile - see here: HIS iSilence H775P1GD Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit G... and here: PowerColor Go! Green AX7750 1GBD5-NH Radeon HD 775...

And I think there is a sapphire version as well.

So it might be doable in low profile. Might need to underclock it a little, though.
you have about 40% the space to do it on LP so compering to full sized passive solutions is well.. uncomperable. If they want it to be LP fanless might aswell come out with a cut down version of the 7750 gpu. Maybe something with 384 shaders idk...
BTW in my opion it IS possible indeed but then requiers you to use a copper vapor chamber witch kinda beats the porpuse of being cheap.

AFOX had their work cut-out for them, since they also did the HD 6850 LP. The problem is that their cards are hard to get and are very expensive.
