PowerColor Radeon 6870 PCS+ review -
The backside of the product shows that everything is reference, 100% similar to the other 6870 cards we have tested to date. Make note of the one CrossfireX connector, this card can only be setup in 2-way multi-GPU mode, anything higher is not possible.
Located at the backside we spot two 6-pin power connectors. This card only peaks to roughly 160W, so 75W is supplied through the PCIe slot, and the other 2x 75W through the two 6-pin PCIe PEG connectors. This card will offer great performance per watt.
One last photo of the product, overall a good looking card. I do wish that TUL/PowerColor would step away from the red colored PCB though. Black would have been so much nicer.
We test and review the PowerColor Radeon HD 7850 SCS3 today. This stock clocked Radeon HD 7850 is cooled passively, meaning it has no fans tool it down. That also means it's rather silent as it does not make any noise. But what about temperatures then you must be wondering ?

PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 PCS+ review
PowerColor is the first in our line-up of R7950 reviews with a customized model. It is the PCS version that clocks in at a cool 880 MHz on the graphics core with it's memory clocked default at an effective data rate of 5000 MHZ. Armed witha custom cooler it is silent, and even cooler compared to the reference model.
PowerColor Radeon 6870 PCS+ review
This is the R6870 PCS+ version where PowerColor pre-overclocks the card to 940 MHz (900 reference) and clock the memory at 4400 MHz coming from 4200 MHz. This should give the card a nifty nice boost.
