The main BIOS setting will allow for the unlocking of shaders, as well as boost the core speed up to 880MHz, with the memory speed still at 1250MHz. With the unlocking of shaders, as well as the core speed at 880MHz, the only difference between this card and the HD6970’s technical specs would be the memory speed, which is slightly faster on the HD6970.
The backup BIOS setting will follow the specs of the reference HD6950, with the core clock of 800MHz and the memory speed of 1250MHz.
“This product is like nothing else on the market with its dual mode setting design. The PCS++ HD6950 is an innovative product with all the key features, it should be the solution which can fulfill any gamer’s demand,” said Ted Chen, CEO of TUL corporation.
In addition, the PowerColor PCS++ HD6950 features a non-reference designed cooler. The card is kept cool through the use of dual 92mm fans, allowing for more airflow than the reference designed cooler.
