So its time to have a closer look at the retail product. First off, above is the packaging so you know what to look for in the stores, and well .. just to satisfy your curiosity of course ;)
Above you can spot the package bundle. That card is custom alright, heatpipe based cooling and overall silent, but we'll show you that in out tests of course. Bundled are the basics like drivers and card power cables.
Being the IceQ X Turbo Edition the card is factory clocked at 820 MHz on the GPU for you, memory is running at a faster effective data-rate of 4400 MHz as well.
The card is non-reference obviously, and comes with a DisplayPort 1.2 connector, one HDMI 1.4a connector and two DVI connectors, one of which is single and the other is dual-link.
If you have a very high resolution Dual-link monitor at 2560x1600 and connect your card to the single link connector, your resolution could be cut in half to ~1280x1024 or something close. Use the dual-link connector, and you'll have the full 2560x1600 resolution available. This of course only applies to the two DVI connectors.
We test and review the a HIS Radeon HD 7950 HIS IceQ X, this 30 CM sized beast is one heck of a graphics card. Custom PCB, custom cooling, it's low noise and being a Boost edition card series, it clocks in at 950 MHz.
HIS Radeon HD 7850 4GB iPower IceQ Turbo review
We test and review the a HIS Radeon HD 7850 iPower IceQ Turbo as single card and in Crossfire today. The HIS Radeon HD 7850 iPower IceQ Turbo is a factory overclocked 4GB version of the Radeon HD 7850 graphics card.
HIS Radeon HD 7970 X Turbo edition review
We review the HIS Radeon HD 7970 X Turbo edition. With this card they took the new Tahiti XT2 and redesigned the R7970 board from ground up. though very long the end result is a 31cm PCB with mane power phases and optimizations. Fun to see are the voltage and FAN monitor LED options. Most impressive however is the sheer amount of monitor connectors HIS injected into this product, four DisplayPort connectors, one HDMI and a DVI connector. If needed you can go for Eyefinity6. Oh did I mention already that the factory set boost clock frequency is 1180 Mhz ?
HIS Radeon HD 7950 ICEQ Turbo review
We review the HIS Radeon HD 7950 IceQX Turbo. The product comes factory overclocked very nicely for you as it is running a gentle 900 MHz clock frequency. HIS uses a custom PCB and dual-slot cooler making the card very easy to install. Despite that factory overclock and that cooler the noise levels remain at very low levels whereas the GPU temperatures remain downright excellent as we'll show you in this review.
