Sapphire HD6670 Low Profile Graphics Card Review

Conclusion

As we noted earlier in the review Sapphire have identified a gap in the market and created the low profile 6670 with single slot cooler to target consumers with this requirement. For that reason the card scores well on the design front, it fits that requirement well. The build quality is also decent with a nice blue PCB and solid cooler that doesn’t feel flimsy despite the low pricing of the card.

In terms of performance the card does very well for its price bracket. We saw a number of recent games play well at 1920×1080 with maximum detail and even in the ultra demanding Battlefield 3 medium detail was achievable. Of course the alternative would have been to keep the detail level at High/Ultra and drop the resolution ot 1280×720 which would be ideal on a HDTV.

Media performance was also good and the card’s ability to output 3D video and audio over HDMI makes it an ideal candidate for Blu-Ray 3D playback on the latest TVs. Especially so when the cooler runs as quiet as it does.

For value Sapphire tell us that the card will retail at the same level as the standard model. So while we don’t get the free game and HDMI cable of the Ultimate bundle the price is appropriate and membership of Sapphires Select Club does add value.

Summary
Does exactly what it sets out to do, offers a good gaming and HTPC solution for low profile systems.
