PowerColor HD 6990 LCS Water Cooled Graphics Card

LCS stands for Liquid Cooling Solution, which means that the newest PowerColor LCS HD 6990 video card comes with a waterblock (piece used on liquid cooling systems).

PowerColor is working with fabulous cooling manufacturer EKwaterblocks once again to bring the liquid cooling solution to the HD6990, aims to deliver the exceptional thermal performance to increase the headroom of overclocking potential while allowing optimum system stability.

The brand-new PowerColor LCS HD 6990 card features stock clocks (830/880 MHz for GPUs, 5 GHz for memory), 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (2 GB per GPU), one DVI and four mini DisplayPort video outputs, and comes equipped with a Volterra’s digital voltage regulator circuit.

An interesting point is that this video card is a single-slot solution, contrary to the reference model that occupies two slots on the computer case.

Its two cores are clocked at 830MHz, but the card also features a special switch which enables users to run it into the so-called AUSUM mode that overclocks the GPUs to 880MHz.

The PowerColor LCS HD 6990 is shipped together with high-flow 3/8″ and 1/2″ fittings (barbs) with captured o-rings to prevent leakage.

No details regarding pricing are available at this time, but the regular version of the PowerColor Radeon HD 6990 retails for $709.99 shipped, while the EK-FC6990 waterblock and backplate are priced at about $223 US, so the LCS HD 6990 could surpass the $900 mark.
