It has been over a year since AMD released their 7000 series of GPUs and not far off 9 months since NVIDIA did the same with their 600 series. That means manufacturers have had some significant time to release custom cards to market, in various flavours of GPU, to try and appeal to wide ranges of consumers. Of course this also means that as time goes on, without any new range of cards close to release, people start thinking out of the box in terms of how to get extra sales, or beat comparatively priced products.
In PowerColor's case they are looking to stand out by taking the Tahiti GPU, usually used in 7900 series cards, and pricing/configuring it at 7870 level. Call it Tahiti LE, 7950 Light... or 7870 Myst with PCS+ cooling. Today we take a look at how it performs in games like Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed 3 and Hitman Absolution.
