The PowerColor HD 6850 single slot edition clocks in at 775MHz core speed and 1000MHz memory speed; accelerating gaming speed with 1.48 teraFLOPs of computing Power. The slim HD6850 can maximize the rig’s performance in a single slot design, allowing a 4 way CrossFireX layout that delivers an out-of-box HD gaming experience like no other.

I'm still waiting for the no 6pin 75W HD6850s.

That's odd, most 6850/6870 cards only have one crossfire connector and thus can only do a two-way crossfire setup.

Mayhaps this is also the first quad crossfire capable 6850 and Techpowerup overlooked that fact?

These will be good for people with mobo's that have daft PCIe x16 slot configs that cover other slots if duel slot coolers are used, like me and my Asus M3A32MVP-Deluxe I can only access 2 pcie x16 slots because of stupid placement
