POWERCOLOR PCS+ HD 5870 INTRODUCTION
At the time of this PowerColor PCS+ HD 5870 review, the world is well aware that the newer HD 6900 series
of videocards have been released and are slowly making their way into retail channels for the 2010 Holiday season. But what a lot of people are asking is if they are better off buying the newer generation of videocard, or would it be better to buy a HD 5870 that is purpose built for overclocking, save themselves US$70-90, overclock the card and get close to the same performance.
Powercolor's PCS+ (Professional Cooling System) line of videocards are constructed with keeping temperatures in control and thus allow the buyer to push clock rates to a level beyond what you would see with a vanilla reference based model. Through testing we aim to show the potential buyer whether or not an advanced edition of the HD 5870 can still hang with the newer and more expensive generation at this given time.
