Silent HD 6850 by Powercolor with a passive cooler system detailed

Powercolor unveiled a silent AMD HD 6850 graphic card using a passive cooling system with a large heatsink and five heat pipes inside an aluminum fin array reported techpowerup:

Powercolor is currently evaluating a new design that makes use of a large GPU heatsink featuring an aluminum fin array that ensures the card occupies just two expansion slots, while adding surface area by propagating to the top of the card, in an L-shape. The heatsink uses no less than five heat pipes to convey heat to the fins. PowerColor's card will be branded under the company's "SCS3" line of silent graphics cards. Based on the 40 nm "Barts" silicon, the AMD Radeon HD 6850 features 960 stream processors, and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory over a 256-bit wide memory interface
