    sapphire just launched 6570 that using passive cooling solution
    Sapphire's recently-launched HD 6670 ULTIMATE is a pretty nifty solution if you're in the market for a practically silent graphics card, but if its dual-slot girth and meaty heatsink aren't going to play nice with your HTPC chassis, have a gander at this:
    That's the lesser-known HD 6570 ULTIMATE, fresh out of Sapphire's Taiwanese office.

    The short, compact card might not have the power of the 6670 - its core is toned down from 800MHz to 650MHz and it's joined by 1GB of DDR3 memory, not GDDR5 - but we reckon there will be plenty of users swayed by the single-slot width and standard-height heatsink.
    There are of course still 480 stream processors onboard, and AMD's Universal Video Decoder is on hand to deliver silky-smooth hardware-accelerated video. If you're enjoying the current three-dimensional craze, you'll be happy to hear that the 6570 ULTIMATE will happily output stereoscopic 3D over its HDMI 1.4a output, and the card provides VGA and DVI outputs, too.


    for 6670
    Sapphire tells us that the 1,024MB HD 6670 ULTIMATE - endowed with an 800MHz core speed and 4,000MHz effective GDDR5 memory speed - delivers the feature-set and performance of fan-cooled models, despite being totally silent.

    The cooling solution itself taps into the potential of heat-pipes, and from a connectivity viewpoint, you've got Dual-Link DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort to play with. If it's freebies you're looking for, Sapphire includes an access code for DiRT3, and this offer extends to a number of other SKUs too.
