Review: Is it a card? Is it a wind tunnel?


PowerColor PCS+ HD6950 2GB GDDR5 (Vortex II Edition) is a high end graphics card based on AMD’s Cayman GPU featuring 1408 shader units and 2GB of GDDR5 memory.

As the name suggests, this is no ordinary graphics card. The PCS+ stands for factory overclocking where the GPU is overclocked from 800MHz to 850MHz and memory from 1250MHz to 1300MHz, but it’s the cooling system that truly separates this card from the rest of  the HD 6950 pack. So far, we’ve had a chance to see a couple of nice HD 6950 custom cooling solutions, although the reference cooler is also efficient. Still, with Vortex II cooler, PCS + HD 6950 card definitely looks meaner than the reference HD 6950.
