Dual Vortex cooler and GPU at 850MHz
As expected, Powercolor has today officially announced its latest addition to the HD 6900 series lineup, the PCS+ HD 6950 Vortex II card. Featuring a new Vortex II dual-fan cooler and factory overclocked HD 6950 GPU, the new PCS+ HD 6950 will come with 2GB of memory and will be bundled with Call of Duty: Modern Warefare 2 game in some regions.

As far as the specs go, the new card feature 1408 Stream processors, GPU factory overclocked to 850MHz and 2GB of GDDR5 memory factory overclocked to 5200MHz and paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. The card features a new custom PCB that uses high-grade components and will have all the regular outputs including two DVI, HDMI and two mini Displayport outputs.

The new cooler features two 92mm Vortex fans and four heatpipes. The fans can be raised or lowered in order to optimize the airflow to the heatsink. The card hasn't been priced yet but we expect it retail at around €250.
