We review the PowerColor Radeon R9-290X PCS+ graphics card, this beast runs at low temperatures whilst being factory overclocked. The 2816 Stream processor based Hawaii chip will get paired with 4 GB GDDR5 memory running along a 512-bit memory interface. The card itself is fully customized including component selection, custom PCB, custom cooling, well .. custom everything ! Powered through 8-Pin + 6-Pin power configuration it obviously runs at factory overclocked specifications as well. The card will clock towards 1050 MHz and has an improved GDDR5 memory frequency as well. Did I just catch your attention ? I figured that much, let's go and check 'r out shall we ?
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.
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. Read article
PowerColor is as always never late to arrive at the party, they submitted a Radeon HD 6850 for a test here at Guru3D.com and as such we'd be more than happy to bring you a full review on one of their newest products today, the PCS+ version of the Radeon HD 6850 that comes pre-overclocked.

Meet the Powercolor HD5770 1GB GDDR5 Single Slot graphics card. Each card Radeon HD5770 is clocked at 850MHz, has a 1GB memory partition running at 1,2GHz (x4 Quad data rate gDDR5) over a 128 bit memory bus. Each card comes with a Display Port, DVI-I and HDMI allowing much flexibility monitor wise. The new cards are clocked at reference speeds as the new single slot coolers obviously have a little less cooling capacity opposed to the dual-slot version. Today we'll take a total of four of these cards and see what they'll do setup in multi-GPU-mode, CrossfireX. Read article
With the cards becoming more and more available we'll see more and more manufacturers, AIC and AIB partners release new updated products based on the series 5000 product. PowerColor is releasing a Radeon HD 5770 which is labeled as PCS+ and comes with a custom PCB, slightly higher clock frequencies, custom cooler, and no less than four output connectors. Read article
Today we test a graphics card from the chaps of PowerColor, they launched their Radeon HD 4890 PCS+ , a card with custom cooling, a lot of copper .. and it comes pre-overclocked at 950 MHz with a 4200 MHz memory frequency. That sounds definitely sexy doesn't it ? Read article
In our earlier review we tested the Radeon HD 3870 X2 from HiS, today we move onwards and have a closer peek of what PowerColor / TUL has to offer us.
The beast we'll review today is the Radeon HD 3870 X2. A snazzy VGA-card as this is a multi-GPU solution on one PCB (one board). Yep you heard it right, two graphics processors on one board, bridged, making it a "single" card, a card that because it's bridged will work on any mainboard with a fast enough PCIe slot (x8 or x16 is fine); so you do not need a specific Crossfire compatible mainboard.

Roughly 3 weeks ago ATI released yet another graphics card onto the market that comes from that successful series X1000 family of graphics cards. Targeted at the high-end segment yet in the low range. A product that is being positioned against NVIDIA's 299 dollar GeForce 7900 GT. Read article

Today we'll be peeking at the rather lovely Radeon X1800 GTO from this company. So here it is my fellow guru's, a review on ATI latest 12-pipe mid-range product based on the X1800 silicon which quite frankly is a very credible graphics card as you'll learn in this article. The product offers up-to twice the performance of the X1600 Pro yet carries a pricetag of sub 249 USD. Theis model from PowerColor is actually tagged at 239 USD. Fascinating ? Yes I agree .. absolutely. Read article

Quite honestly I never expected PowerColor to be around in 2004 as I figured their reputation at one point would get to them but hey, they still are. A few weeks ago I was contacted by a representative of Tul, the actually company that is responsible for the PowerColor line of products asking if we would be interested in reviewing some of their products. Within that context I have to say that of course over the years I have been following them. We have seen a lot of discussion about the products in our forums and the trend shows that things have improved for the better for sure. So today we will be reviewing the PowerColor Radeon x800 Pro. With that being said, let's start up this review beginning with a small overview of the Radeon x800 Pro. Read article
