We hit 1150MHz core on our reference 7870. With PowerColor already binning chips for their PCS+ 7870 we landed a chip that could do a full 1200MHz, a full 20% over the reference 7870 and 9% over PowerColor’s factory overclock. And like the reference 7870 this is all on stock voltage – we haven’t even touched overvolting yet

The PowerColor PCS+ 7870 in particular is a very impressive card, and for those who want great gaming performance without dropping a fortune, this is a card to get. It looks fabulous, beats a GTX 580, is very well priced, and offers an excellent overall package.
