Zotac had their entire line of ZBOX mini PCs on display at CES this year. The one that really caught our attention was the new passively cooled C Series unit. Being passively cooled means that there are no fans at all inside the unit. This means that there is going to be no noise at all!
Sapphire’s R7 250 Ultimate graphics card is unlike most other R7 250’s out there. The thing that most people will notice is that it is 100% passively cooled. This means that there are no fans at all so it will be 100% silent during operation. This makes it the perfect card for those building a silent PC or home theater PC. On top of that this card is actually based on the “Cape Verde” GPU rather than the “Oland” GPU that most R7 250’s are based on. So you get 512 shader units and faster GDDR5 memory. Let’s see what this passively cooled card is all about!
AMD’s FirePro S10000 is one of the highest end workstation graphics card you can get from AMD. The S10000 is a dual GPU card and Sapphire has just released a passively cooler version of the card. This means that it is completely cooled by large heatsinks and no fans.
