Comes on November 6th
As promised, Powercolor has announced its water-cooled HD 5870 LCS card which features a waterblock from EK Water Blocks.
Due to the use of water block, the card now takes only one slot, but it still has a dual slot backplate. The EK water block is made out of copper and has support for both 1/2" and 3/8" fittings. The card got a slight factory overclock as well and it works at 875MHz for the core and 5000MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory, which is 25MHz overclock for the core and 50MHz (200MHz effective) overclock for memory.
The Powercolor HD 5870 LCS will be also bundled with a Dirt 2 download coupon. As was the case with previous LCS water-cooled cards, this one will be limited edition as well and probably quite hard to find so you might want to check it out once it becomes available on 6th of November.
According to our info, the price should be somewhere around €430, depending on the retailer/e-tailer.
