TweakTown found photos of a Radeon HD 3850 HDMI graphics card from a Chinese manufacturer.
What makes this card so different is the fact that an onboard HDMI connector, rather than relying on a DVI to HDMI converter commonly used on ATI cards. This could be an advantage in tight spaces, as you don’t need to make room for those extra couple of centimetres that the dongle takes up.

The downside of this card would be the custom made cooler, as although it’s a novel idea, the two small fans are likely to add more noise, which is not desirable, especially for anyone thinking about putting this card into a HTPC type environment.
