Now give me the same card with a fanless design, and we can talk.
Can you remove the VGA port and make it a true single slot card? HTPC anyone.
It's a cool design, people stuck with slim line cases can finally game. Just might have to replace the psu?
Not only that... But they can actually play high-res videos and pack a bunch of power under the hood...
I know of one person who'd like this but unfortunately her computer has a really old motherboard that only takes APG and it's unlikely there's going to be another motherboard that's going to work with that case but it's still nice of Sapphire to do it regardless... Release all that power I mean.
EDIT: That VGA connector is removable you know. Just look on the top near the plate. BAM! The connector as seen on all other low end cards.

Fanless would be awesome. My old XFX 7950 was fanless and had a really cool and efficient heat sink and pipes.
News:If you want to take that as a challenge to hunt one down, be our guest -- we tried to find another one ourselves and came up empty
'I was going nuts for a moment there trying to find one, but came up empty as well. This card has a very low profile, although not a true single slot card , unless like Omega ask, if the VGA output can be removed. Still, a great product with a lot of juice for movies and lower resolution gaming with very low power consumption ."
The bigger the better -.- lol :P.
I would like a fanless one though :P.

Guys get to work, rip the case and everything else off, still a 6670, but does it still work? :P lol
Hmm fanless would be cool I guess but I imagine inside a case that fan would not make much noise really. Also as far as fanless why not just get this card or even a 6970 and liquid cool it anyway if you want fanless. It is way more efficient really especially for a smaller case because they hold heat as well as recirculate like they do heat wise.
but how is it on heat? how good is the single slot solution vs the standard cooler?
