PowerColor Design Contest Offering Chance to Win a DX11 Videocard

Category: Video Cards
Posted: 05:36PM

With the release of Windows 7 less than two months away there's been increasing speculation around when the next generation of videocards with support for DirectX 11 will be available. ATI has already demoed working silicon for the next generation cards based on a 40nm process and now PowerColor is offering users the chance to win a DX11 card with the announcement of its Design and Choose the Best online contest.

The contest involves using design elements provided by PowerColor and incorporating them into an original wallpaper, screen saver or IM icon. Contestants can submit up to three entries in each category with winners to be determined by popular vote. Entries will be accepted from September 1 through September 20. Voting begins the next day and runs through September 20 with the final winners to be announced October 5.

Just because you lack any semblance of creativity doesn't mean you can't qualify to win something as voters will be eligible to win one of 20 Go! Green HD4670 videocards. You can check out the details and download the design elements from the PowerColor contest site.

It looks like PowerColor is doing what HIS did with the design competition on TPU. Hope to see some good designs. Have gotten the PowerColor 4850 PCS+, then now the 4890 PCS+ (both w/ ZEROTherm Coolers) and am watching to see if they make a good 5870 (that pumps heat out of the case), or else I will be shifting. The cooler on the 4890 PCS+ is beautiful, but pumps too much heat into the case and has a noisy fan, so am not going for that sort of thing anymore...
