Powercolor Pushes Out First Liquid Cooled HD 6990

Powercolor's looking to make a splash in the graphics card market by announcing what it claims is the world's first and only liquid cooling Radeon HD 6990 graphics card. For those of you rocking a water cooled rig, the LCS HD6990 will slide right in and comes with both 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch barbs with captured o-rings to prevent leakage.

As Powercolor as done before, the company partnered with EKwaterblocks to provide the hardware, which includes a full water block with a copper base mounted on the card. It covers all the key components and, according to Powercolor, offers up to 30 percent better cooling on the GPU than a reference board, even under full load.


Other features include a "dual BIOS setting, allowing a hardware overdrive option from factory-supported clocks to switch to a 880MHz core speed and 1250MHz," up from 830MHz. The card also boasts Volterra's digital power solution, which Powercolor says maximizes transforming efficiency.
