PowerColor announces first ever AMD HD7970 with liquid cooling

Late last year, AMD announced that its next-generation Radeon HD 7000 series graphics cards, including the fact that high-end solutions will come with a new liquid chamber cooling solution instead of the typical vapor chamber designs.

Well PowerColor recently announced the first of this next-gen Radeon HD 7000 GPUs. The PowerColor LCS HD7970 enhances the overclocking headroom and has factory OC setting at 1150MHz core and 5.7Gbps memory, delivering extraordinary thermal performance for optimum system stability in a superb OC setting.


The PowerColor LCS HD7970 dissipates the heat from the nickel coated copper base which fully covers the key components, enhancing anti-oxidizing ability and allowing GPU temperature under 50°C even under full load. Moreover, with acetal surface of water block design, preventing moisture damage to ensure the longer life cycle.

Compatible with the latest GCN architecture, the PowerColor LCS HD7970 is ready for DirectX®11.1 and PCI Express 3.0, delivering ground-breaking gaming performance. Engineered with support for AMD Eyefinity Technology 2.0 and HD3D technology, it enables a “œwrap around” gaming view with stereo 3D technology to put you right into the game.

PowerColor LCS HD7970 packages a high-flow 3/8″ and 1/2” fittings (barbs) to maximize water flow with captured o-rings to prevent leakage. Gamers can customize their own liquid cooling system using these two fittings.

This is simply an announcement so no local pricing detail yet.

PowerColor LCS HD7970 Specs:

  • Core Speed: 1050MHz
  • Memory Speed: 1425MHz(5.7Gbps)
  • Memory: 3GB GDDR5
  • Memory Bandwidth: 384-bit
  • Eyefinity: Yes
  • DirectX: 11.1
  • CrossFireX: Yes
  • Output: DL DVI-I / HDMI / 2 X mini DisplayPort

  • I really need a new graphics card. I’m sick of the lag time and I have a sneaking suspicion that the heat distribution and my current AMD card is not sufficient. Thanks for this write up I think I’m going to go with a liquid cooled version.

    I’m sure this video card will cost a lot and I mean a lot.

    • video cards that don’t suck often do. haayyzz.

    • Not to mention that the one included in this package is just the block, factor in the cost of the whole water cooling system, pumps, radiators and reservoirs. Not for the casual user. xD

    Go to gilmore! i bought my Amd HD 6770 and Nvidia GTX 550Ti for only 5k each haha.. mura na un and i bought it in jan2012 pa bka bumaba pa ule ngaun 😀

  • I like the way you have described the detail information about liquid cooling amd.How liquid cooling is used to cool the power cooler?
