AFOX started shipping a weird Radeon HD 6850 1GB graphics card in Asia. What makes this card interesting is that it uses a single-slot design, and relies entirely on the PCI Express slot for power. This is in stark contrast to other Radeon HD 6850 cards, which typically have a dual-slot cooling design and require 6-pin PCIe power input.
The AF6850-1024D5S1 from AFOX features a red PCB, a black single slot cooler that covers all of the board's obverse side, and looks to feature a dense heatsink to which air is circulated by a blower. The card uses reference clock speeds of 775 MHz core, 1000 MHz (4.00 GHz GDDR5 effective) memory. The HD 6850 is rated by AMD to have 127W typical max power draw. It would be interesting to see how the card is managing to run the GPU with the slot's 75W. What's more, the card doesn't compromise in the display connectors department, packing one each of DVI, full-size HDMI 1.4a, full-size DisplayPort 1.2, and mini-DisplayPort 1.2.
It's sold in Japan for 19,780 yen, which equals around $245 at the current currency exchange rate.
