Photos - The Cards
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at 4272 x 2848 pixels and then scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D - 12 MegaPixel.
Two GPUs, double memory configuration .. that's a lot of wires and components to mount into a PCB. As you can see, the card is long for sure. I measured it up and it's 27 CM in length. But hey .. meet the HIS Radeon HD 4870 X2.
Aah ... a black PCB. Traditionally ATI always used a red colored PCB, which quite frankly doesn't fit the high-end products really well. High-end PCs are often pimped up a bit. I really like the black aesthetics here, and I think it's a very sexy look for the card. As you can see in some other photo's (look at top photo) most final versions will have a sticker on top of the cooler though. A bit of a shame really, as that Radeon sticker gone would have liked even better.
The R700 has a metal plate across the back of the card just like the older 3870 X2. Quite interestingly, it also has RAM on the back..
So here we see the backside of the product with the metal shim removed. You can clearly see the visible memory chips now.
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.
