MSI Launches Low Profile Graphics Card with Two Fans

Paul Lilly

MSI had HTPC users in mind when it launched its R5670-PD512 videocard earlier today. Sporting a low profile design, the new card also comes equipped with dual fans for an added cooling punch.

According to MSI, the two-fan cooling solution provides 50 percent better airflow than a single fan, but that isn't all the R5670-PD512 has going for it. MSI is also touting the heatsink, which covers both the GPU and memory while still maintaining a low profile form factor.

MSI's variant sticks close to reference specs and comes clocked at 775MHz, while the 512MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 4040MHz on a 128-bit bus. Other features include "Military Class Concept" components, such as all solid capacitors and a solid state choke.

No word yet on price or availability.
