Sapphire unveils low profile Radeon R7 240 card

Not everyone wants to have a full-sized video card due to numerous reasons and if this is the case with you then Sapphire may have something for you – the Taiwanese company has unveiled a low profile Radeon R7 240 graphics card.

The Sapphire Radeon R7 240 Low Profile is based on AMD’s successful GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture and comes with dual HDMI outputs with support for high speed HDMI 1.4a and 4K display resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. Both display outputs can be used at the same time. The card comes with a GPU that offers 320 stream processors and runs at 730 MHz (780 MHz in Turbo Mode). Unfortunately for some users this card comes with 2 GB of DDR3 memory at 1800 MHz, accessed over a 128-bit bus. As a comparison regular R7 240 cards come with GDDR5 memory that runs at 5400 MHz.

You will surely lose a frame here and there in games with this video card but another advantage is that it comes with a low profile, which makes it suitable for use in small form factor PCs. In addition it boasts low power consumption, which is another plus.

The pricing of the Sapphire Radeon R7 240 Low Profile is, however, unknown at the moment.
