Okay, pictures first. On this page you can see the HIS R7850 IceqX TurboX edition, a graphics card with 2GB graphics memory.
Included with all cards will be a manual and a demo and driver CD, power converters and monitor connector converters to get your multi-monitor freak on. Let's have a look at that:
We see a dark/blue looking card from HIS. The close to 3 billion-transistor 28nm Pitcairn based core is tied to 2GB memory -- which is plenty enough for midrange products. As stated, all the regulars are included.
The reference Radeon HD 7850 cards are clocked at a 860 MHz core frequency and the GDDR5 memory runs at 4.8 Gbps (effective data rate as GDDR5 has a quad data-rate, so effectively that quadruples that number), the memory bus is 256-bit.
This HIS R7850 model is however clocked at 1000 MHz. The memory clock is 200 MHz higher clocked at an effective data rate of 5000 MHz.
Here we can see the backside, the cards will fit pretty much any chassis. It's a custom design PCB with a blue color.
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.
