Custom and overclocked

Powercolor has announced its PCS+ Edition of the HD 5800 series featuring both the HD 5870 and the HD 5850. Both cards are factory overclocked and feature a custom cooling solution.

The PCS+ HD 5870 is working at 875MHz for the core and 1225MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory, while the PCS+ 5850 works at 760MHz for the core and 1050MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory. The factory overclock for the PCS+ HD 5870 is 25MHz for both GPU and the memory, but we are quite sure that these can do much more thanks to custom cooling. The PCS+ HD 5850 had a slightly higher factory overclock of 35MHz for the core and 50MHz for memory.

The PCS+ HD 5800 series is cooled by a 92mm fan paired up with a heatsink with four copper heat pipes and a copper base. The cooler shroud does look better than the one on the reference cooler and this time Powercolor has decided to go for the center placed fan. According to Powercolor, this should provide up to 10°C lower temperatures when compared to the reference card.

Both cards are bundled with Dirt 2 and although they are still not listed, we are quite sure that they will show up pretty soon. You can expect the 5870 to retail at around €330 while the HD 5850 should hit retail at a €250 price tag.
