Powercolor preparing HD 6870 PCS+

Written by Slobodan Simic

Updated: Overclocked to 940MHz

In addition to the recently released HD 6850 PCS+, Powercolor has just detailed its new HD 6870 card that will be a part of its factory overclocked PCS+ line. The new HD 6870 PCS+ card will feature a custom dual-slot cooler and a pretty decent factory overclock.

We manage to find out that the new HD 6870 PCS+ card will end up overclocked to 940MHz for the GPU and 4400MHz for memory. This is a decent factory overclock that takes the card from its reference 900MHz for the GPU and 4200MHz for memory. The card still comes with 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface, has two DVI, HDMI and two mini DisplayPort outputs and needs two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors.

The card should end up a bit cooler and quieter than the reference one and the official announcement should come sometimes next week. You can check out more pictures at Powercolor's Facebook page.

Update: Powercolor saw that nice little comment below and was kind enough to inform us that the HD 6870 PCS+ will indeed feature a software voltage control and will not use a cheaper voltage regulator. Hopefully some reviews will show up pretty soon and we'll know for sure.
