AFOX HD7850 Single Slot Crossfire Review

Rating: 8.0.

Today we take a first look at the new single slot HD7850 graphics card from AFOX. The company claim this is the ‘world's most powerful single slot graphics card' and our review will highlight Crossfire performance. If you are building a space restricted media center but don't want to compromise when gaming, are these the products you should be shortlisting?

AFOX as a brand name may be unknown to our readers, however they are a spin off from parent company Foxconn (Hon Hai Precision Industry Co) a Taiwanese multinational electronics manufacturing company based in Taipei. Foxconn manufacture a huge range of products, such as the iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

There really is no question that their manufacturing capabilities are world class, so we have high hopes that the AFOX HD7850 Single Slot may be one of the best choices for a tiny media system. We already know that a single HD7850 can run out of horsepower at high resolution with some of the more demanding engines, but how about two?

  1. single slot for a 7850 is quite impressive. ill not want them myself, but its a good idea to get your name noticed IMO. media fanbois should love this.

  2. They would work well in the latest silverstone small form factor chassis. im tempted to build a second system now, with a liquid cooling system.

  3. Its HOTTER, LOUDER and more power hungry. Even if its single slot, its a pretty big fail if u ask me.

  4. im confused, are foxconn actually behind these or is it a different company? the name surely must mean they are linked in.

  5. @ Maxwell.

    Its less power hungry, did you read the graph wrong? also single slot cards are always going to be hotter and louder. unless they can suddenly develop new fan technology that is half the size/depth which miraculously is quieter. hasn’t happened.

    AFOX are an off-shoot of the Foxconn brand. Originally set up as a graphics division to Foxconn it soon split and became its own company.
