PCS+ series HD 7970 and HD 7870


Powercolor has now shed some light on its two new Vortex II equipped cards that will be a part of Powercolor's factory overclocked PCS+ series, the Powercolor PCS+ HD 7970 Vortex II and Powercolor PCS+ HD 7870 Vortex II graphics cards.

We already wrote a bit about the PCS+ HD 7970 Vortex II but in case you missed it, this one is based on AMD's Tahiti XT GPU with 2048 stream processors. It works at 1100MHz for the GPU and features 3GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1425MHz (5.7GHz effective) and paried up with a 384-bit memory interface. The new Powercolor PCS+ HD 7870 Vortex II is based on AMD's Pitcairn XT GPU with 1280 stream processors and works at 1150MHz for the GPU and features 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1225MHz (4.9GHz effective) and paired up with a 256-bit memory interface.

As you could have guessed from the name of these two cards, it is clear that both of them feature Powercolor's Vortex II cooler that promises lower temperatures and lower noise output when compared to the reference cooler.

Unfortunately, the price or the actual availability date haven't been announced.
