PowerColor rolls out HD 6970 LCS

Written by


Water-cooled Cayman at 925MHz
Mentioning the Caymans usually conjures up images of pristine beaches, tanned women, money laundering and crystal clear Caribbean waters.

However, in the graphics world Cayman stands for AMD's latest high-end GPU series and PowerColor is the first AIB to offer a water cooled HD 6970 board.

The card features EKwaterblocks cooling capable of dissipating more heat than a bottle of Captain Morgan's Spiced Gold and a sweaty bucket of ice. The water block covers all vital components and PowerColor claims it can keep temperatures under 50°C at full load. The block itself features 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch fittings and ships with all the necessary O-rings needed to connect it to a liquid cooling system.

The card is facture overclocked to 925MHz core and 1425MHz memory and features Volterra digital power management to ease further overclocking.

HD 6950 + LCS = Best Performance per $ Ratio (6970 + overclock possible), what may be batter than such a present for Today ;-)

What is the overclocking limit of 6970 LCS? It should be more than 1GHz given that almost all cards on air can reach 950MHz.
An overclocked 6970 to 950MHz with some new drivers will be enough to offer 580 performance.

i love the fact that amd/ati chips (both cpu and gpu) run so much cooler than intel/nvidia counterparts, means you get great OC potential, or the potential to run your fans slower and get a near silent build

Well , we don't even need overclock ones the moment slightly proper drivers come out !
Well duh , many people still compare the 580 with a brand new driver .
And the 70' with a beta driver .

Well , i can buy a 50' at 320$ less then the 580 at 769$ Both from MSI , and mind you , i live in SG .

Antilles will come in a month or two and then we will also have updated numbers with proper drivers for 69xx cards. Also there will be overclocked 69xx models.

What about a 6950 unlocked review compared to 560 and 570? I wonder which card will offer more perf/$. :P
That review would be fair as there were so many 460 OC reviews...

From what I've seen, the 6950 performs just as the 6970 if all parameters are alike. Basically you'll get the best bang for the buck if you go 6950 for a long time.

I successfully applied the AMD HD6970 BIOS to a HD6950 and made a higher performing graphics card, I posted video tutorial here on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEZL5vezYm0
