PowerColor Radeon HD 6950 PCS++ Graphics Card Review


This week has seen a lot of movement in the graphics card market which started with the launch of NVIDIAs GTX 560. The main impact of that release was an adjustment of prices on AMD based cards to ensure they were as competitive as possible and then there was the release of 6950 models which use 1GB rather than the standard 2GB. At the same time we have also seen a number of manufacturers begin to hit the market with their enhanced 6900 series cards.

One of the more impressive looking enhanced 6950s is the PowerColor PCS++ model and today we have one of those on our test bench. With an enhanced cooler and significantly increased specifications over the standard 6950 we will be putting it up against the GTX 570 and Radeon 6970 to see if it can compete with those, more expensive models.
