Powercolor working on new HD 5870 LCS

Written by Slobodan Simic

Improved PCB and 950MHz clock
Following the success of HD 5870 cards, Powercolor has decided to launch a new HD 5870 LCS V2 card. As you all remember, Powercolor launched it first HD 5870 LCS card back in November 2009, but the new card should use the PCB seen on the HD 5870 PCS++ combined with the same EK Water Blocks water block.

The new HD 5870 LCS V2 will run at 950MHz and should have additional overclocking headroom courtesy of the improved PCB. Of course, additional overclocking will depend on your water cooling setup but it is nice to know that the card can do it.

The card should hit retail sometime next month and depending on the region should cost around €499.

I think it's dumb that manufacturers only push their AMD card to something like 950/975mhz when using custom cooling solutions, especially watercooling, just [censored]ing push it to 1Ghz and claim yourself some god damn kudos!

Yeah, but then they wouldn't be able to advertise FURTHER overclocking potential, would they? :)

well AMD said their 5970 cards could reach 1.2Ghz with the reference chamber cooling solution if overclocked and fan speed at 100%, these watercooling cards could definitely achieve something greater than 1Ghz so why not stock clock it at 1Ghz and still claim overclocking potential?
