Powercolor HD6950 PCS++ 2GB Review – dual action

Rating: 9.0.

The HD6950 has been a big seller for AMD over the last couple of months, thanks to a combination of solid pricing and high levels of performance. When the enthusiast audience learned that the HD6950 could be easily modded into a HD6970, sales figures increased even more. Powercolor have capitalised on this easy software modification by releasing the HD6950 PCS++, a card which comes with both a HD6950 and HD6970 bios.

Not only does the Powercolor HD6950 PCS++ offer HD6970 performance levels at the flick of a switch, but it also has a custom heatpipe cooler and PCB to improve noise emissions and reduce temperatures.
