Connectivity wise the output connectors will vary per brand. HIS equips the card with two display port connectors (mini), HDMI and a Dual link DVI connector.
The HIS R7770 has a power consumption of give or take 80 Watts. The boards overall power consumption from idle to load is excellent really. Expect an idle wattage of roughly 10 Watt and when the monitor goes into power save mode, the card throttles down even lower towards 3 watt.
Here we can also see the cooler a bit better. Heatpipe based with a fans blowing over the aluminum heat sink. The cooler is performing nicely and the overall noise levels are non existent.
You will need to hook the 7770 up to your power supply with a 6-pin PCIe PEG connector. We recommend a 500 power supply to start with, with one card of course. You could opt to go with two cards in crossfire mode as there is one Crossfire connector available on the card.
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.
