PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 PCS Pictured

Here is the first picture of PowerColor Radeon HD 79xx PCS graphics card (note how the last two digits of the model number are blacked out). It seems this card is PowerColor's Radeon HD 7950 PCS, with which it will start its HD 7950 lineup. From this fairly large, and fairly clear picture PowerColor released, one can make out its new PCS (professional cooling system) cooler design, which uses a slightly larger aluminum fin-stack heatsink than the one found on previous generation PCS coolers. Heat is drawn from the GPU and conveyed to this fin-stack a number of nickel-plated copper heat-pipes (we count four). The heatsink is ventilated by two 80 mm fans. The card appears to stick within the confines of two expansion slots.

Totally looks like a Sapphire card, but that isnt new. They did it on (at least) the 6800 series as well.

Oddly, even with almost the same-looking cooler design it wasnt of the same performance/noise characteristics from every review I read...but when they look the same and powercolor is cheaper, that is probably a winning formula worth repeating.
