Passive Cooled Powercolor R9 270 Launched




/ 7 years ago

Powercolor-R9270SCS3-1

Powercolour have rolled out their latest R9 270 graphics card, which features a completely passive cooler design. Now of course this may not be the most powerful graphics card on the market, but the temptation of having a card that runs at 0dBA is great for those wanting a silent build or HTPC.

The heatsink is of course huge, featuring six heatpipes to keep the thing from overheating and given the overall specifications its not exactly easy to keep it cool. The card features a clock speed of 920MHz for the GPU, 2GB of GDDR5 memory at 5600MHz and a 256-bit memory interface. This being part of the R9 270 range, the card is based around AMD’s Pitcairn architecture, which features 1280 stream processors, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPS.

Of course you’ll want a nicely ventilated chassis if you’re going to install this kind of card, but a little forward planning can get you a long way to a virtually silent, or at least a lot quieter rig. With prices of around £149.99 from places like overclockers.co.uk the card is affordable too.
