Powercolor Radeon HD 7970 Vortex in the works

Non-reference PCB pixellized 


It is no secret that AMD partners are working on non-reference Tahiti Radeon HD 7900 series cards and we managed to score one of the first pictures of a non-reference PCB and an actual card from PowerColor.

PowerColor is a major AMD partner and we already saw their Vortex cooler in action back on the HD 6970. As far as the PCB is concerned we don't have much details other than it has a beefier VRM and that the card will draw power from two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors so we guess that it could end up with a nice factory overclock and more overclocking room when compared to the reference card.

Of course, the card should end up to be quieter and a bit less hot thanks to the Vortex cooler. The date is still unknown but we'll surely try to dig out more info.
