Powercolor HD6870 PCS+ Review

Rating: 9.0.

Well it was a long time coming, but finally we have a HD6870 with a custom cooling solution. Powercolor have just released the HD6870 PCS+ graphics card which is not only supplied with a rather sexy heatpipe cooler, but substantial overclocks.

Both HD6850 and HD6870 were received warmly by the enthusiast audience, specifically due to the extremely competitive price points. An overclocked HD6870 for instance could hold onto the performance levels of the last generation HD5870, for a portion of the price.

As with most reference AMD products, we found the HD6870 cooler to be rather disappointing and have been waiting patiently for a partner to release a modified card. Powercolor are the first to hit the KitGuru labs and we have high hopes that this will be a substantial improvement over the reference design.
