PowerColor HD6870X2 Review

Up Close Pt 2

Outputs are well covered with two DVIs, a HDMI and two DisplayPorts for the Eyefinity. Power is, naturally for a twin-GPU card, supplied by two 8pin PCIe connectors.

Should you wish to go Quadfire there is a Crossfire connector in the usual place and the shroud has been designed to help the top card in a twin setup to still manage to gulp in cool air.

Speaking of cooling, look at the size of those heat-pipes!! They're huge. It's a bit disappointing they aren't polished to a gleaming shine, but on girth alone they are impressive.

I was expecting it to be about £260/70 even with a better cooler £300 seems a bit steep.

Nvida might even drop the price of the 570 or maybe the 580 now in response to this, they usually drop their prices when AMD out performs them.Quote
