Powercolor Pushes Out First Liquid Cooled HD 6990
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.
