Today we have not one, but two AFOX HD7850 Single slot cards. The ‘AFOX’ artwork looks surprisingly like the Mozilla Firefox logo. Or is it just me?

The accessories are included in a thin separate box which rests on top of the card. The bundle includes a driver installation guide and disc and a power converter cable. We always recommend you grab the latest drivers from the official AMD site however as these could be several revisions out of date.

The AFOX HD7850 Single slot card is built around a plain black PCB. The AFOX logo is seen on a sticker, visible in the center of the small, offset fan. The company logo is also highlighted right above the PCIe slot connector. The AMD logo is printed top right at the front of the cooler.

The card is Crossfire capable in a 2 way configuration. If you want three or quad Crossfire options then you need to buy a 79xx product. The AFOX HD7850 demands power from a single 6 pin PCI connector.

The card has a full sized Displayport, a mini Displayport, full sized HDMI and DVI connector. It is Eyefinity capable. This is an impressive array of output connectors for a single slot card.

The single slot cooler is easy to remove and comprises two copper heatpipes which run across the length of the cooler to the copper base. The small fan is offset to the left.

Above, we can see just how thin these cards are, positioned next to a reference dual slot AMD graphics card.

    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.

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

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

    @ 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.

    @ Davis

    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.
