HIS HD 6670 Fan 1GB

Conclusion

Who do you market a card like this to? The performance isn’t bad, but it’s low profile which suggest and HTPC or compact build with some head room. Problem there is the cooler isn’t silent, though it’s got some temperature head room so it can probably overclock more than a standard card.

I suppose compact, low end gamers might like this? You’re not playing anything made within the last 3 years on anything above minimum settings. So gamers are out I suppose.

Really, the only people I can see this product being specifically designed for are non-silent HTPC users. This is far from a bad card and it’s not going to get a bad score, but I just don’t know who’s supposed to buy this. There’s just better alternatives out there for almost every category you fit into.

Pros

Performance lets you game at a basic level
Fan is quiet during most tasks
Low profile allows for HTPC and compact builds
Low power draw

Cons

Noise picks up during heavy usage
Not powerful enough for any real gaming

  1. It seems this will be the gfx core for the next-gen xbox.
    Isn’t it too low-spec for that? :(

    1. I have a feeling with the extra delay Microsoft have announced we’ll be seeing a 7000 series GPU in there. The performance jump is pretty huge and the extra die shrink would allow for a much cooler and quieter console.

  5. Just got this card today. Its an upgrade from integrated graphics which were bad. This card has run very well in Dota 2, Heroes of Newerth, League of Legends. Can run everything in high and very smooth. The card makes almost no noise. Very easy to install. For only 80$ its what i need :D
