PowerColor launches Water cooled HD 6990

Yesterday, Powercolor ancounced its new Liquid cooled LCS HD6990 graphics card:
The card will be shipping with a Factory Fitted EK waterblock and with that, will be a price premium. You’d think then, that the card would be crazily overclocked. You’ll be dissapointed then, as the card will ship at reference clocks coming in at 830MHz in the GPU and 5,000MHz on the memory, switching to 880MHz and 5,000MHz respectively – when using the BIOS switch located next to the Crossfire connector.
As for the temperature, we have been informed that the card can hold its own under load. It offers a 30% thermal advantage over the stock fan-based system when placed under extreme load and this, it is claimed, should increase overclocking headroom and potential. A single-slot form factor saves space and the use of a Volterra VRM solution adds to the stability and overclocking capabilities of this card.
There is currently no word on pricing.
