Silent HTPC-Friendly GeCube Graphics Card in the Works

Even amidst fears of the company closing down, GeCube has made it a point to release new products. The latest offering is a passively-cooled Radeon HD 4550 accelerator. The GC-HD4550LP3-E3 is a half-height, HTPC-friendly graphics card which makes do with a heatsink to cool it. The heatsink spans across three quarters of the length of the card.

The card is driven by the 55 nm RV710 GPU which holds 80 stream processors, and a 64-bit wide memory interface to hold 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. The core is clocked at 600 MHz, with the memory at 800 MHz (1600 MHz DDR). DVI and HDMI connectors are located on the card, with a D-Sub connector that extends out. Expect this card to be priced around €50.

im guessing it has the same mass as the sun but does it glow like it when its gaming? :laugh:
the price is well..nice i guess and the low profile thingy with no fans seems like a good buy as long as the warranty will still be worth something after gecube is gone.
