Low-Profile HD 6850 graphics card from AFOX on shelves in Japan

And with no ext. power source required either.

| Video Cards News | Posted: Aug 10, 2011 3:48 pm

A particularly interesting looking HD 6850 graphics card has been found in Japanese stores by a company unheard of to most, AFOX. It's not just the brand name and box design that stands out, though. More interestingly, this card is quite a big step away from the reference design in that it is of low-profile stature and without the need for external power.

The low profile heatsink/fan design is also a standout feature with its dual-fan aluminum setup. AFOX appears to have left the stock clock rates on the card alone, however, which are 775MHz on the core and 4000MHz on the GDDR5 memory.

Due to being a low-profile card, it only has 1 x DVI and 1 x DisplayPort output. AFOX does ship the card with a separate full-profile bracket.
