Powercolor rolls out its HD 6870 PCS++ card

Written by Slobodan Simic

Barts at 975MHz

Powercolor has rolled yet another card that will be a part of its PCS lineup, the Radeon PCS++ HD 6870. Based on the well known Barts GPU, the new Radeon PCS++ Radeon HD 6870 will use non-reference PCB with high-grade VRM and a nono-reference dual slot cooler that should keep the factory overclocked GPU temps at bay.

The new Powercolor Radeon PCS++ HD 6870 packs 1120 Stream processors and has ended up overclocked to 975MHz for the GPU and 4600MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. Just for comparison sake, the reference card works at 900/4200MHz. Powercolor decided to equip this one with Volterra, Poscap and Proadilizer chips for the VRM that should offer good power efficiency and maybe even more MHz of additional overclock. The dual-slot cooler is similar to the one that we already saw on Powercolor's PCS series cards and features a center placed 92mm fan paired up with three copper heatpipes.

The card has support for CrossFireX and features two DVI, one HDMI and two mini-DisplayPort outputs. Unfortunately, the price or the availability date haven't been announced but it shouldn't end up much more expensive than the HD 6870 PCS+ that sells at around €170.
