Low profile HDMI 8500GT from Leadtek

With external S/PDIF

| Connectivity & Communications News | Posted: Oct 5, 2007 9:44 am

Leadtek has announced a new dinky graphics card for those that need something affordable with HDMI output. The good news is that the PX8500 GT TDH HDMI as Leadtek calls it, still has a DVI connector. As the model name suggests this card is based on the GeForce 8500 GT GPU and it's paired with 256MB of 128-bit DDR2 memory

 

The Core is clocked at 450MHz and has 16 stream engines while the memory is clocked at 800MHz. The GPU is cooled by a heatpipe and a passive heatsink which should keep the card nice and cool. It's a low profile card and this should make it a great option for home theatre PC machines.

For those that only have an external S/PDIF connector on their sound card or motherboard, the inclusion of an external coaxial S/PDIF connector should be a welcome addition. This allows you to use a single cable for audio and video thanks to the addition of HDMI on the card.

 

You can check out more info over at the Leadtek website
