HIS R9 380 IceQ x2 OC Video Card Review

Today, we have an opportunity to review one of AMD’s ‘new’ video cards, the R9 380. After AMD’s exciting release of the Fury X and upcoming Fury, we are starting to see the rest of the lineup begin to fill in. Overclockers.com will start off with an offering from HIS, specifically the R9 380 IceQ X2 OC 2GB. HIS strapped on their IceQ X2 cooler on the R9 380 and gives it a slight bump in clock speed. Traditionally, the HIS IceQ X2 coolers do a great job at quietly managing thermals while the cards themselves offer great performance. It is time to see if all that still holds true! Read More

HIS again beefs up the reference 290 on both the hardware and cooling side, along with a pretty unique color scheme and look.

HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 Video Card Review

AMD has been releasing the Rx 2xx series of GPUs over the past nine months. The R9 280 is one of the last GPUs in the series that was released, and it filled the gap between the 270X and 280X nicely. Today, we will be looking at the first R9 280 our review team has seen in the HIS overclocked IceQ X2 model! This offering has the IceQ X2 aftermarket cooler on it and has fared quite well on both our R9 80X review and R7 50/R7 260X/R9 270X review. Let’s see how this 280 stacks up against the rest of the R9 series! Read More

HIS R9 290X iPower IceQ X2 Graphics Card Review

HIS was kind enough to send along their new flagship R9 290X for us to check out, which boasts a factory overclock, a beefed up power delivery section, and a host of other features we’ll dive into. Now that Cryptocoin mining has lessened its impact on AMD based graphics card pricing, cards in this class should be a bit more appealing to those in the market for one. The HIS R9 290X iPower IceQ X2 falls within the HIS “Turbo” family of graphics cards that promise a balance of great gaming performance and cooling. So, let’s take this latest offering from HIS, run it through our review process, and see if it’s a worthy contender in the crowded R9 290X market! Read More

HIS iCooler R7 250, 260X IceQ X2, and R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Videocard Reviews

So, AMD has had their little song and dance about TrueAudio and the new generation of GPUs they have released. We have reviewed from the R9 290, almost all the way down the row to the R7 250. While these are (mostly) rebrands in their ‘new’ generation, a few news ones hit the scene like the R7 250 and R9 290/290x. In this review, as I am sure anyone that is breathing noticed, we will take a look at the offerings from HIS. We’ll cover the iCooler R7 250, followed by the R7 260X IceQ X2, and last but not least, the R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo. This should give us a good idea of how the lineup sits from nearly head to toe. Let’s get to it! Read More

AMD R9 270 Video Card Review

Just when some may have thought the dust has settled on AMD’s ‘new’ GPUs, we are seeing the first signs of the gaps being filled in with the R9 270 being released today. This, and perhaps a 250X and 260 should fill in the performance differences nicely between the already released 250, 260X, and 270X that we will see on the front page shortly. AMD markets this card as ‘the highest performing 150W card’, so let us see how that actually works out with our new suite of benchmarks! Read More

The card is also outfitted with their best cooler to date, the IceQ X2. With the factory overclock, voltage control, and a good cooling solution, the card certainly appears to be geared towards the overclocking and enthusiast crowd. So, let’s get the card on the bench and see what HIS has in store for us! Read More

HIS HD 7970 IceQ X² GHz Edition GPU Review

I bet some of you are scratching your heads with a case of deja vu… and you wouldn’t be mistaken. We have another HIS HD 7970 to review today, but instead of the HD 7970 X Turbo (reviewed here), we will be looking at the HD 7970 IceQ X² Turbo GHz Edition version of that same card. This one sports the same “X²” cooler as the X Turbo, but the PCB is much different in that it sports less power phases than its big brother. Let’s see if these changes make for a big difference between the cards. Read More

HIS HD 7950 IceQ X2 Boost Clock Graphics Card Review

HIS has added another member to its HD 7950 family of video cards; this time around we have another Boost Clock edition. The core clock is not quite as high as other HIS 7950s, but it’s not at the bottom of the pecking order either. One thing that is not at the lower end is the IceQ X2 cooler that has been applied to this card. So, let’s have a closer look and see if the HIS HD 7950 IceQ X2 Boost Clock is a worthy contender in the competitive HD 7950 market. Read More
