    PowerColor launched its second Radeon HD 7750 graphics card, a Go! Green variant. Models of this series tend to be energy-efficient (with slightly lowered voltages, reducing power draw), while maintaining reference clock speeds. Another striking feature of Go! Green variants is their silent passive-heatsink that cools the GPU and VRM. To maintain high temperature tolerance, and energy-efficiency, PowerColor tends to employ high-grade voltage regulation components on their Go! Green cards. In case of this card, it is said to utilize PowerPAK SO-8 MOSFETs, shielded chokes, and conductive-polymer capacitors.

    The card sticks to reference clock speeds of 800 MHz (core) and 1125 MHz / 4.50 GHz effective (memory), packs 512 Graphics CoreNext stream processors, and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory over a 128-bit wide memory interface. The cooler is similar to the one featured on previous-generation Go! Green cards from PowerColor, it consists of a dense aluminum fin heatsink, to which heat is conveyed by copper heat pipes that draw head directly off the core. Heat dissipation happens passively. Expect the card to charge a tiny premium over other Radeon HD 7750 cards in the market.

    Sooo when are the passive cooled 7850's and low profile 7770's coming out? :roll:
    But eh, I wonder if it's any cheaper than the Sapphire Ultimate.

    Powercolor do nice stuff.. I`m a fan of the pcs series.
    ATI cards should be red.. always.. no exceptions.. RED
    I don`t care if your cards are not the same colour as the rest of your system.
    RED DAMNIT!

    Two or three slots wide?

    PS. I'm really looking forward to performance parts being one-slot again, like in the goodoledays of Radeon 8500/9700 etc. I guess we will have to wait for 22nm.

    nice to see that this heatsink is CRAZY ASS BIG like the ones on the passively cooled 5770's etc.

    The whole “fanless” mindset is really kind of silly, when you can throw on an inaudible 6db fan and triple performance. Ok throw in the Green word and people will jump onboard, ya I get the business side of it. But how many people really need a “zero decibel” computer when even a hound cannot hear 6db? Music producers? Will all the music producers please raise their hands! Yup that’s what I thought.

    It's also that there are no moving parts which is also a positive.

    Waiting for the PowerColor 7850 passive. I would have bought the PC 6850 last year had I not seen the Gigabyte 6770 passive not come first.
    I'll never own another propeller cooled card again.
