So here we have the two cards being used for CrossfireX in today's test.

Thanks to HIS who quickly submitted a card for review, we can offer you this article. Since we have the cards I wanted to quickly run you through the product and its bundle. As you can see, HIS as always tries to do something nice with the package they deliver. In most scenarios they always include a little something extra.

Included in the box are:

  • One fine Radeon HD 5870
  • DVI to VGA Dongle x 1
  • Crossfire bridge x 1
  • Manual
  • Driver CD
  • Multi-purpose magnetic screwdriver with LED and dust wiper
  • Colin McRae Dirt 2 download coupon!

Not bad Sir, not bad at all. The HIS 5870 cards, this bundle actually, is selling for 389 USD.

So as you can see, here we have the HIS Radeon HD 5870. Quite a charming fellah to look at really. It's encased completely and has that ridged cooling solution. the card is quite lengthy measuring 28 CM / 11 in. Connectivity. I think it is safe to say that we can leave the explanation of single and dual-link DVI behind us.

It is incredible to see how much connectivity this card can deal with. With the standard reference Radeon HD 5870 we already have four digital connectors at our disposal, we spot two DVI, an HDMI and a DisplayPort connector.
