PowerColor Launches Radeon R9 290X PCS+ 8GB

TUL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of AMD graphic cards since 1997, has released a new model, the PowerColor R9 290X with an advanced frame buffer memory of 8GB. Designed to fully support future graphically demanding titles at 4k resolution, the PCS+ R9 290X 8GB GDDR5 comes packed with an 8gb memory size, as well as latest GCN architecture innovations such as DirectX 12 and Mantle API. Offering gamers an incredibly immersive HD gaming experience at unrivaled performance.

The new PCS+ model utilizes 8GB of GDDR5 memory with 2816 stream processors. The larger 8GB frame buffer caters to latest applications and games that are getting more memory intensive. Clocks speeds are 1030MHz for the core and 1375MHz for the memory, which is connected via a new high speed 512-bit memory interface delivering excellent performance. To maintain higher OC performance with stability, PowerColor uses their own exclusive Gold Power Kit, including a Digital PWM to decrease the ripple and enhance power efficiency; the PowIRstage enables the Peak Efficiency up to 93.2% and the Multi Phases Design can enhance power efficiency and stability.

PowerColor Debuts Newest PCS+ Graphics Cards at CES 2014

TUL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of AMD graphic cards, is going to show off several feature products during CES 2014, including the most eye-catchy model, the PowerColor PCS+ R9 290X, ready to impress everyone.

Industry-leading OC Setting with Gold Power Kit
Except the debut of PCS+ R9 290X at CES 2014, the PCS+ R9 290 is also in the limelight. The PCS+ R9 290X/290 run at the most higher frequency, which feature 1050 MHz/1040 MHz at core respectively, and both set the memory at 1350 MHz which is 100 MHz higher than ref. design, totally boost the performance to the limit. To remain the OC performance together with higher stability, PowerColor utilizes the exclusive Gold Power Kit at both PCS+ models, including Digital PWM to decrease the ripple and enhance power efficiency; the DirectFET to minimize conduction losses and the Multi Phases Design can enhance power efficiency and stability.

PowerColor Radeon R9 290X PCS+ Unveiled

PowerColor may have been the first AMD add-in board vendor to launch a custom-design Radeon R9 290X graphics card with its R9 290X LCS, which is basically an AMD reference PCB with a factory-fitted EKWB FC-R9-290X water-block; but its air-cooled non-reference cards have been nowhere in sight, until now. PowerColor posted these pictures of the Radeon R9 290X PCS+, its premium factory-overclocked and air-cooled graphics card based on AMD's flagship GPU. The company's Radeon R9 290 (non-X) PCS+ is expected to look identical.

Pictures reveal the card's PCB to be largely based on AMD's reference design, perhaps with variations on the choice of components. PowerColor has a knack of splurging on expensive, high-quality components on its PCBs (think International Rectifier and Coilworks VRM components, Samsung and SK Hynix memory chips, etc.), and we expect a similar treatment for the R9 290X PCS+. The two-slot cooling solution featured on this card is making its debut with it. It features a network of aluminium fin stacks to which heat is fed by copper heat pipes, and which are ventilated by a trio of 80 mm fans. PowerColor didn't reveal clock speeds, launch date, or pricing.

PowerColor Readies Radeon HD 6870 PCS+ Graphics Card

Back at its launch, AMD didn't allow its board partners to release custom-design Radeon HD 6870 graphics cards right away, though such a restriction wasn't in place for the HD 6850. They were, however, allowed to come up with factory-overclocked models, that stick to the AMD reference design. That restriction could soon be lifted, with one of the first pictures of a completely non-reference design HD 6870 graphics card, the PowerColor HD 6870 PCS+, smiling for cameras.

The Professional Cooling System Plus (PCS+) from PowerColor makes use of a high-grade cooler that facilitates better overclocking, and runs quieter compared to the reference design cooler. It consists of a racy-looking shroud under which there's a large GPU heatsink, which is cooled by a 90 mm fan. The PCB also looks to be non-reference design. The card is also overclocked out of the box, 940/4400 MHz (core/memory, GDDR5 effective), vs. reference speeds of 900/4200 MHz. The Radeon HD 6870 is based on the 40 nm "Barts" silicon, it packs 1120 stream processors, and connects to 1 GB of memory over a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. The PowerColor HD 6870 PCS+ is expected to release towards the end of this month.

PowerColor Readies Overclocker-Friendly Radeon HD 5770 PCS++ Graphics Card

PowerColor is working on a new Radeon HD 5770 graphics card that's geared for overclocking, the HD 5770 PCS++. The new model, while retains the same out of the box clock speeds and cooling as the HD 5770 PCS+, uses a redesigned PCB with high-grade VRM for higher overclocking potential. It has out of the box clock speeds of 875/1225 MHz (core/memory), against reference speeds of 850/1200 MHz. The ATI Radeon HD 5770 GPU packs 800 stream processors, and connects to 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface.

The PowerColor HD 5770 PCS++ borrows its PCB design from the PowerColor HD 5750 Go! Green, (HD 5750 and HD 5770 are based on the same Juniper GPU and are hence pin-compatible) which we recently reviewed. To do away with the 6-pin auxiliary power connector, the Go! Green card relied on a high-efficiency digital PWM circuit with three vGPU and two vMem phases, driven by a Volterra VT1165 voltage controller which supports software voltage control. From the looks of it, the PCS++ reuses the same PCB, but with the 6-pin power connector in place for added power. Despite the lack of this connector, and having passive cooling, the Go! Green card managed GPU and memory overclocks of 10% and 25%, making us expect even higher with this card. Its cooling system includes a GPU cooler made by Arctic Cooling, with independent heatsinks over the memory and VRM chips. It is expected that PowerColor prices the HD 5770 PCS++ at 10 EUR / 15 USD higher than the HD 5770 PCS+, which is around US $170.

PowerColor Announces HD 5830 PCS+ Graphics Card

The factory overclocked ability ensures gaming efficacy can effortlessly go beyond the standard version, and provides the out of box gaming performance gamers have never felt before.

PowerColor Adds Own Design to the HD 5770 with HD 5770 PCS+

TUL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of AMD graphics cards, introduced an upgraded addition into the HD5700 series: the PCS+ HD5770. Part of the award-winning PCS series, the PCS+ HD5770 features outstanding factory overclocked ability with core and memory clocks at 875 MHz and 1225MHz respectively and GDDR5 onboard memory. Memory data transmission rates are enhanced up to 4.9Gbps, easily boosting gaming performance.

The PCS+ HD5770 also features an ultra quite 92mm cooling fan which is made of a low-noise impeller, easily dissipating heat from the copper base that fully covers the GPU at lower fan speed and efficiently cools down the temperature up to 10°C compared to that of reference board design. This allows more headroom for overclocking giving gamers maximum performance of their rig.
