Sapphire Announces World's First Single Slot, Low Profile Radeon HD 6670 Videocard

Well here's something you don't see very often -- a single slot, low profile Radeon HD 6670 graphics card. Actually, this is something you've never seen before, according to Sapphire, which claims there's no other HD 6670 videocard like this one anywhere in the world. 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.

As a refresher, the Radeon HD 6670 sports 480 Stream Processors and 24 texture processing units. Sapphire's model has 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1000MHz (4000MHz effective), along with a graphics core clocked at 800MHz. In other words, it's a reference design, at least as far as speeds go, but in a low profile format with a single slot cooler. According to Sapphire, it's one of the fastest and most capable low profile graphics cards out there.

Connectivity options include a dual-link DVI port, HDMI port, and VGA port. The card comes with both standard and low profile backplates, so you can use it in your media center PC or desktop system with no fuss.

No word on price, but if we had to guess, this one will pop up on store shelves soon for around $100.
