PowerColor has just announced the SCS3 HD5750, the first passive cooling DX11 card. It will run at stock speeds, being 700MHz and 4600MHz for the GPU and memory respectively while also having all the features of the other cards, but instead of the typical fan cooler, it will have a 4-heatpipe passive cooling solution providing absolute silence. With its silence and good performance, the SCS3 HD5750 is a card to have in mind for silent computing and especially for the use in an HTPC. We can only expect similar solutions for its bigger sister, the HD5770, in the near future. The card is set to be launched in late November with a price around the 150 dollar mark.
