HIS Releases Radeon HD 4650 iSilence 4

HIS made an addition to its lineup, with a silent Radeon HD 4650 graphics card. The card is passively cooled by a passive cooler by Zalman, the VNF100. The PCB is sandwiched between parts of the cooler. On the top side of the PCB, is the GPU contact block which has some aluminum fins, while three heatpipes arise from it. The heatpipes convey heat to a large and dense array of alumium fins behind the PCB. With the location of these fins being above the PCB in most installations, better cooling is achieved with air heated by the card moving upwards.

The GPU is clocked at 600 MHz. The card uses 512 MB of DDR2 memory clocked at 1000 MHz. The card has started selling in Europe for 77€.

Is it just me, or is that a relic of the old X1K branding?

Also, neat! Albeit a little expensive... Much cleaner than Powercolor's towering behemoth of a cooler though. Little surprised we haven't seen a Gigabyte SilentPipe model yet...
