Powercolor shrink the 3870 X2

Retaining O/C and 4 DVI ports

| Posted: Jan 30, 2008 11:18 pm

We've seen quite a few HD 3870 X2 cards floating around now, with the most eye-catching undoubtedly being the GECUBE variant we reviewed recently with its fancy dual-fan cooling solution and trimmed down PCB.

 

However, this PowerColor variant spotted over at Fudzilla is right up with the GECUBE card in terms of standing out from the crowd. Straight away upon first glace you pick up on the shorter nature of this obviously modified flavour of the reference X2, though its cooler looks quite pale in comparison to the GECUBE offering.

PowerColor has an interesting version of of the Radeon HD 3870 X2 which is actually shorter than the reference design from ATI. This card features a brand new cooler and it requires just two 6-pin power connectors (no 8-pin). We found out that the card is overclocked, but we're not sure to what frequencies. Different power connectors is good news for those who don't have an 8-pin PCIe connector on their PSU.
