Review: Batmobile in action again

PowerColor HD 6870 PCS+ looks pretty nice with the hood seriously makes the card resemble the futuristic racing car pictured on the box.

The HD 6870 PCS+ cooling is dual slot and the card is 24cm long. Although the card’s PCB is as long as the reference one, reference card’s cooler makes the card 7mm longer.

The fan is 9cm in diameter and is connected to the 3-pin connector. Fan speed regulation can be performed via the Catalyst Overdrive or any other tool you may prefer.

The I/O panel features two DisplayPort 1.2 connectors, HDMI 1.4a and two DVI connectors (one of them is single-link with maximum resolution of 1920x1200).

Unlike the Radeon HD 5850, Radeon HD 6870 comes with only one CrossFire connector. This means that you can only use two cards in 2-way CrossFire.

Radeon HD 6870 consumes 151W at max so it will require two power connectors.

"Radeon HD 6870 beats the Radeon HD 5850 but it is slower than Radeon HD 5870." The 5870 is also faster than the 6970 in certain games too. This is utter garbage! They factory overclock an 6870 but won't put their name on a 6970?!! Oh, thats right they threw water on it or it would've burnt the hell up! Anybody who buys this $h!t is outta their frickin minds!!! :D
