Powercolor SCS3 HD 7850

Teased earlier last month, Powercolor has now officially announced its new fully passive SCS3 HD 7850 graphics card.

According to Powercolor, the new SCS3 HD 7850 uses Gold Power Kit PCB with high efficient VRM, Ferrite Core Choke and Solid Capacitors. The SCS3 passive cooler features four G-shape 6mm heatpipes and a massive heatsink. It takes up two slots but it is slightly taller than a standard graphics card.

Since it is a passively cooled graphics card, Powercolor decided to keep it at reference 850MHz for the GPU and 1200MHz (4.8GHz effective) for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. In case you missed it earlier, the HD 7850 is based on 28nm GCN architecture Pitcarin GPU with a total of 1024 stream processors.

According to our info, the new Powercolor SCS3 HD 7850 should be available as of next week with a price premium of around €20/US$20.
