Spotted: PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 PCS

PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 PCS spotted, includes dual 80mm fans

The first pictures of PowerColor's upcoming Radeon HD 7950 PCS graphics card have surfaced, with reliable sources telling TechPowerUp that it is indeed true. As we can see from the below shot, the new PCS (professional cooling system) cooler design, uses a larger aluminum fin-stack heatsink that the previous PCS coolers used.


Heat is drawn from the GPU, taken to the fin-stack and a number of nickel-plated copper heat-pipes. Heat from there is then pushed out by the two 80mm fans. By the looks of the picture, it's a dual-slot card.

With its design and color scheme, one would think it's a Sapphire card. I do like the look of it though, those two 80mm fans should do a very good job at keeping the card cool, and an even better job when the card is obviously overclocked and working hard.
