Perhaps looking to separate itself from the pack, TUL Corporation today announced newly designed Radeon HD 7870 and 7850 graphics cards in the PowerColor family. In addition to a few aesthetic enhancements, the new PowerColor cards are apparently "packed" with higher quality components for improved cooling, better stability, and more overclocking headroom.

TUL Corporation didn't go into a whole lot of detail, though did mention that the new cards are using solid components. As for specs, the PowerColor HD 7870 GHz Edition features a 1,000MHz GPU clockspeed and 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4,800MHz on a 256-bit bus, while the HD 7850 boasts an 860MHz GPU clockspeed and the same memory specs.

"The PowerColor HD 7800 series equipped with industry-leading technology; by utilizing AMD Eyefinity 2.0 technology and AMD HD3D Technology, the HD 7800 series supports multi-display stereoscopic 3D content, allowing an immersive 'wrap around' gaming experience. Also, with the support of AMD PowerTune technology and AMD ZeroCore technology, enabling the intelligent power monitoring to enable higher clock speeds and better performance when needed, delivering the most efficient way for gaming like never before," TUL Corporation states.

No word yet on price or availability.

At least it doesn't look so long. I hate all those 12" and 13" monstrosities. I don't have to buy a 4' case just to fit in a card. Looks good.

PowerColor AMD Radeon 7800 Series Video card look great. I am consider to upgrade to this. And am wonder if it will work with PCI Express 2.0? Bit high clocked and more faster than Radeon 6850. I think it will be nice to have that.. I will wait a while until plenty of video card from HIS, PowerColor, etc. sell on online store.

Why only include thiis in the 78xx series and not bump it up to the 79xx series?

I think users of both cards are equally as likely to overclock,

in a 78xx series you've got users who wanted to save a little money but still wanted good performance, meaning they'd be open minded to overclocking

in a 79xx series cards you have more of enthusiasts who want the best performance, which can clearly be done with overclocking as well
