The First HD 6850 Single Slot Graphics Card from PowerColor
Published on April 25th, 2011
PowerColor has officially launched its first Radeon HD 6850 Single Slot Edition Graphics card. This slim graphics card aims to deliver a decent or as expected performance at the same time provide space.
This single slot graphics card is clocked at 775MHz core speed and has a memory speed of 1000MHz giving a boost of 1.48 teraFlops in gaming power. Not bad at all.
Because it only occupies a single slot, other slots in the motherboard can be utilized or the free space can be used to provide more airflow.
The PowerColor HD6850 single slot edition also supports Eyefinity and 4 way CrossFireX giving you an “out-of-the-box” High Definition gaming experience.
Since this is a single slot, we might have an issue in terms of temperature. Fortunately PowerColor used a better thermal design for this graphics card. It is mounted with three 8mm heat pipes with full cover cooling plate extinguishing the heat from its large pure cooper base.

Core Speed: 775MHz
