Powercolor's HD 6790 officially launched

The one with single 6-pin power connector
Although we already wrote about this one just a day prior to the official launch, but Powercolor has now officially launched its own HD 6790 card. The interesting thing about the Powercolor HD 6790 is the fact that this is the first HD 6790 that jumps out of the reference guidelines and actually needs a single PCI-Express 6-pin power connector.

Other than the fact that it has a lower power requirement, Powercolor's HD 6790 is pretty much the same as all HD 6790 cards launched today as it features a 40nm Barts GPU with 800 Stream processors clocked at 840MHz and comes with 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4200MHz and paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. Powercolor decided to go for the cooler previously seen on some HD 6800 series cards. This one has a center placed 92mm fan paired up with three heatpipes and a large aluminum heatsink. Since it has done a good job on the HD 6800 series we are quite sure that this one should cope well with the HD 6790 as well.

The backplate is left with DVI, HDMI and mini DisplayPort outputs. The card is currently listed in Europe for as low as €114,13 and is currently the cheapest listed HD 6790 card.

You can find it here.

You've missed out the 4th image, where this card can be seen to be literally wiping the floor with the Nshittia 550.
