TUL Corporation, today announced an upgraded version of the LCS HD5870 V2 Graphics Card, which now comes with factory overclocking settings and offers exceptional cooling with Liquid Cooling Solution.
The PowerColor Liquid Cooling Solution (LCS) HD5870 V2 graphics card features unprecedented factory overclocked settings, clocking in at 950MHz core speed and 1200MHz memory speed. The features easily boost gaming performance never seen on a single-GPU.
Traditionally, there has been two cooling methods viz. Air Cooling and Liquid Cooling, to keep heat generated by components on a high-power graphics card, under acceptable limits.
Air cooling solution has a drawback in which the flow rate is restricted due to the air’s ability to conduct heat called Thermal Conductivity. This would reduce the possibility of heat dissipation and as a result, GPU fan would be overloaded creating loud noise.
Liquid Cooling on the other hand, has a better thermal conductivity than air. It can completely dispel excessive heat within an airtight environment. Hardcore games prefer Liquid Cooling System because it is able to dissipate greater amount of heat in a quiet setting.
The PowerColor LCS HD5870 V2 graphics card has a full water block mounted on the card, fully covering the memory and power regulator chip. With a copper base design, it is able to reduce temperatures in the most efficient way possible. PowerColor packages a high-flow 3/8″ and 1/2″ fittings (barbs) to maximize water flow with captured o-rings to prevent leakage allowing gamers to easily customize their own liquid cooling system using these two fittings
Designed with a copper base able to reduce temperatures under 50°C at load, the PowerColor LCS HD5870 V2 graphics card offering outstanding thermal performance and enhancing the overclcoking potential in an ultra-stable environment.
“We got very positive feedback from the first version of the LCS HD5870,” said Ted Chen, CEO of TUL Corporation. “Now we released an upgraded version with factory overclocked settings and offer a cool working environment. We’re sure that it will exceed expectations from gamers.”
PowerColor LCS HD5870 V2 graphics card also includes the latest DiRT2 to utilize the latest DirectX 11 technology which is a world tour of adrenaline-fuelled extreme off-road events in stunning real-world locations. With the support of DirectX 11 technology, this latest game delivers the most realistic, immersive and exhilarating racing experience to gamers.
