PowerColor HD7870 PCS+ Review

The packaging is certainly eye-catching. We're no petrolheads here but we'd wager that's the prototype GT by Citroën resplendent on the box in full-on Burnout mode. Okay maybe we know a little about cars too. As always with PowerColor the box is a combination of flashy logos and clear information.
The box contains the usual selection of accessories. The card itself is 240mm long, about the same length as a GTX570 and has some subtle touches. The chrome HD7870 logo makes a big difference to the sticker type, and a nice change from the red stripes that seem to dominate current cards.
As well as the big 90mm fan in the centre of the card it has some big heatpipes to help keep everything cool. In keeping with the move to more energy efficient cards even this PCS+ model only requires two 6pin PCIe power inputs.
Round the business end we have two mini DisplayPorts, an HDMI and two DVI-Ds for all your connectivity needs. As the HD7870 supports four displays it's nice to have so many options.
