MSI launches low profile Radeon HD 5670 |

Taiwanese tech firm MSI has answered the prayers of Home Theatre PC-owners looking to turn their slimline set-ups into veritable games machines, releasing a low-profile Radeon HD 5670 graphics card.

Most low-profile graphics cards work on the principle that video playback is more important than gaming power, and accordingly feature cut-down GPUs and a narrow 64-bit memory interface.

However, MSI’s R5670-PD512 features a DirectX 11 GPU with 400 stream processors, as well as a 128-bit memory interface. The latter is hooked up to 512MB of 4,040MHz (effective) GDDR5 memory, while the GPU itself is clocked at 775MHz.
It might not be a patch on the specs of AMD and NVIDIA’s top-end DirectX 11 chips, but it’s still a healthy dose of gaming power. You shouldn’t have any trouble playing Fallout 3 or Call of Duty: World at War at 1,680 x 1,050, for example, although current games won’t be happy about you pushing the resolution any further.
