Overclocked to 1GHz


Powercolor has launched yet another graphics card that will be a part of its PCS+ factory overclocked lineup, the new PCS+ HD 7850.

The new Powercolor PCS+ HD 7850 is based on AMD's 28nm Pitcairn Pro GPU with 1024 stream processors. Featuring a custom cooler and a custom black PCB with Gold Power Kit design the new Powercolor PCS+ HD 7850 is factory overclocked to 1000MHz for the GPU and 1225MHz (4.9GHz effective) for 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. The Gold Power Kit includes DrMos, Digital PWM and Mutli Phases design that provides stability in overclocked mode and should provide additional overclocking headroom.

The new card is cooled by Powercolor's PCS dual slot cooler with center placed 92mm fan and SS-shape heatpipes with direct touch technology. According to Powercolor, the new PCS+ 7850, thanks to the custom cooler, ends up 15% cooler and 15% quieter when compared to the the reference card. The new HD 7850 still features one DVI, HDMI and two mini-DisplayPort outputs.

Unfortunately, the new Powercolor PCS+ HD 7850 graphics card is yet to show up in retail/e-tail, so we'll keep an eye out for it.
