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 R7 260X iCooler Video Card Review

It’s been a long while since we have had a chance to review a video card from HIS, but beginning today we will start to see reviews hit the front page as we finally hooked back up with them. HIS is ready to share their complete lineup with us, so be prepared to be inundated! That out of the way, this review will be about their R7 260X iCooler. HIS always straps great and quiet cooling solutions on AMD cards, so let’s check out their newest revision that rests on the R7 260X! Read More

HIS HD 7850 iPower IceQ Turbo 4GB GPU Review with Crossfire

HIS sent us not one, but two of their brand new 7850 iPower IceQ Turbo 4GB cards. I find the combination of 4GB of RAM and a 7850 to be a bit odd as a single card has little hope of driving enough monitor to need more than 2GB. A pair of cards on the other hand, have a chance. In Crossfire (and SLI) the GPU RAM is not added together, a pair of 2GB cards still gives you 2GB. Thus for high resolution (or extremely high detail) use, two 2GB cards might not cut it. Enter the 7850 4GB cards! Inexpensive enough to crossfire (I hope), plenty of RAM for top end stuff. The main question is, does a 7850 core have enough guts to push that many pixels? I aim to find out. Read More

HIS HD 7850 IceQ Turbo GPU Review (w/CrossfireX results)

Today we have an opportunity to look at another HIS video card…or two. This time they have given us a chance to review their newest version of the 7850, the HIS IceQ Turbo.

HIS 7870 IceQ X Turbo X Review (w/ CrossFireX Results)

Tahiti and Pitcairn has been out for a while now, so it’s time for partners to start getting out non-reference versions, at least with their own cooling. HIS has done so with their Pitcairn line with the 7870 IceQ X Turbo X version of the reference 7870. Let’s see if this card can manage to run cooler, quieter, and achieve some solid clocks.

HIS 6870 IceQ Review

Today we have the opportunity to put the HIS 6870 IceQ under the magnifying glass. Some of you that read the front page may be scratching your heads a bit saying, ‘Didn’t Overclockers.com already do this?’. You would be right, more or less. This version, however, has HIS’s monster IceQ cooler strapped to the top of this upper mid-range card and different stock clock speeds. Read More
