HIS Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X Turbo X Graphics Card Review



/ 6 years ago

This past 12 months has seen a lot of new products for AMD in terms of processors, the Fusion platform and of course graphics cards. The HD 6870 has been a top seller for them since its initial launch and have kept a steady growth of sales even with higher end competitor cards being released. As with most graphics cards that are released, a reference design of sorts is used to show the performance and a custom design card follows on later down the line. The HD 6870 saw a massive boost in sales when custom coolers were strapped to the cards and with HIS branding their IceQ X fan and heatsink, it proves our point to the letter.

Being honest, eTeknix like HIS and what their products represent, and that’s why you will always see HIS reviews plastered on this site. They are a company who believe in pushing the limits in terms of cooling and speed, which as we know, both go hand in hand. The faster a card gets, the more efficient cooling is needed, which is where HIS have developed the HD 6870 IceQ X Turbo with it’s 975MHz core clock (900MHz standard) and 1150MHz memory clock (1050MHz standard) and funky blue cooler design.

    I think they wanted it to look that way because the plastic is like Ice then? i guess lol 😎

    No I actually have this card. It looks great with my Asus iodized blue Mobo, and my blue LEDs, it also works very well and weighs quite a bit, you might want to keep irrelevant comments to yourself in the future. :@

    Oh no you didn't! I have the hots for Natalie Portman… and Keira Knightley 🙂

    As Andy said, handbags down :pEach of you will have you own opinions on this card and they won't all be the same. Some will like and some won't. This is the whole reasoning behind review site like us. We do all the hard work of reviewing it so you don't have to :p

  • lucas4

    im not a big fan of the looks of the cooler, but it seems like it performs well, and that is what is important IMO!tbh tho it seems overpriced, id spend £20 more and get the MSI 6950 TFIII. much better performer and cooler :)!

  • aruffell

    I'd spend just over £200 and get a 6950 for sure 😀 Asus DirectCUII :D<a href="http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Asus+ATI+Radeon+HD+6950+DirectCU+II+2048MB+GDDR5+PCI-Express+Graphics+Card+?productId=43807&source=googleps">Asus ATI Radeon HD 6950 DirectCU II 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card – Aria PC

    i love the asus DirectCU coolers, im just not a big fan of their 3 slot versions. i think the problem is that they look too chunky and intrusive.xfire would be much easier with a 2 slot cooler, which is why i would probably go for the TFIII instead.give it a few months and the 6950's will be ~ £100, so xfire is defo a viable option :D!might get me a 6950 as an exam finishing treat :D! if i see one that hits £150ish in the next month or 2, then il probably buy it 😎

    Not really into gaming myself so a card like this would be overkill for me, more into Media,mind you though I wouldn't pass on one for free!

    I was not being irrelevent he stated "Would you like to see one in your case" so I posted that, had I posted to your commet then you can by all means make what ever post you seem fit, as you stated "It looks great" enough said.

  • Chris

    Right guys that is enough bickering and I don't want to step in again. If anybody has any issues then please feel free to contact myself or Andy to sort. For now though, lets keep this thread on track…Lucas, the Asus DirectCUII that we've got here at the moment is awesome, more to come on why we think its awesome later on. For a start its one of the few cards that can do 6 screen eyefinity without daisy chaining or using Display Port hubs 😀

    good to hear :cool:u getting the TFIII in mate?i look forward to seeing the asus review, and it would also be good to compare it to the TFIII. they are IMO the best 6950 choices for us Brits atm :)!it would be interesting to see if that extra 1 slot does make a big enough difference, because that is what a non eyefinity user like myself would look at :)!

  • savagebeast

    I'm sorry for getting so upset over something as small as this. I like my card. It was cheap, and now if you order it from newegg you get a free dirt 3 game. I plan on buying another one probably and crossfiring the two. It'll be decent performance. I know i know. Most people would say, get a 6950 instead. But after watching many people reviews. A single 6950 will not beat out 2 6790s. Being that I already have one 6790, I might as well buy another and do it that way. In the future though, I will be selling them to upgrade.
