[G3D] Gigabyte outs Two New WindForce 3X AMD Video Cards

Accompanied with a customized PBC and the Gigabyte WindForce 3X cooler Gigabyte outs two new Radeon HD 6870 cards. WindForce 3X, that's a heatsink and three PWM fans, plus pure copper heatpipes.

Both boards (GV-R687UD-1GD rev. 1.0 and rev. 2.0) are similar as far as performance goes, with 1,120 Stream processors, an interface of 256 bits for the 1 GB of GDDR5 VRAM (clock of 4,200 MHz) and a GPU frequency of 900 MHz. The factor that does help distinguish between them (even their PCBs are the same blue color) is the fact that the rev. 2.0 boasts ultra Durable VGA+ design (Ferrite Chokes, Low RDS (on MOSFET), NEC Proadlizer film capacitor, Japanese solid capacitors and a 2oz copper PCB).

Seems a bit late to release a HD6870 with this cooler. Would have been better to see it on a HD6970 at least.

Bit unnecessary for a HD6870.

Looks nice, Gigabyte's windforce coolers do a good job at cooling the card.

What are you guys talking about? I've owned 2 of the 6870s with the windforce cooler.

That's the only 6870 that they sell.

The WindForce design is one of the most quiet non-reference GPU cooling solutions available
