With a massive number of stream processors and a gigantic 4GB GDDR5 memory, this card delivers the performance you need for smooth gameplay at extreme settings. The new CrossFire technology allows you to build a multiple graphics card configuration without the use of interconnect bridges. With Ultra Resolution Gaming you can leave HD in the dust by gaming on displays much, much larger. A rich set of AMD innovative technologies is included, such as App Acceleration, AMD PowerTune, AMD ZeroCore, and AMD HD3D technology. With these technology advancements, you'll get more than one way to elevate your gaming experience.

  • newegg iPower for More Voltage, More Overclocking iPower design allows the card to carry more voltage, expanding overclocking capability to a new level! HIS cards utilize Dynamic Phase Control PWM IC to save power for better use. Along with improved power design, digital power design, and a two-ounce copper layer, HIS cards make the best out of power, carrying better OC capability and pushing clock speeds to the full potential!
  • newegg IceQ X² – Cooler, Quieter With IceQ X², the card is cooler and quieter than the reference cooler. The two 8mm and three 6mm wide heatpipes optimize cooling performance by removing heat from the core area, and the extra large 40 x 47.5mm copper heatsink provides a large area to dissipate heat efficiently. The two super large 89mm dual-axial fans draw a massive amount of cool air to cool the GPU directly. The Q&C fan blade increases air velocity, making cooling more efficient, while keeping the noise level to a minimum. With a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours, the fan delivers reliable, long-lasting performance. The card also features fan control and monitoring; you are able to read the fan speed and Asic temperature from an iTurbo or other software. The memory and mosfet are equipped with heatsinks for extra heat dissipation. The card is below 28dB when watching movies, surfing Facebook, or working. The card remains quiet whether you are gaming, socializing online, entertaining, or working.
  • newegg Long Lasting Design: Safer, Last Longer! The card has two Bios, ensuring the card runs properly. You can always switch to the second Bios if the card does not run with the first Bios. HIS cards are engineered with the highest standards of safety, keeping them safe from any potential damage. The solid state choke stabilizes the card, while the full solid state capacitors ensure the best power quality and enhance the card’s stability in critical gaming situations! The PCB might easily warp due to prolonged hanging on motherboard and casing, potentially causing cracks on BGA solder joints and resulting in malfunctioning of the card. The backplate designs reinforce the PCB, making the PCB more long lasting and not easy deformed.
  • newegg Mantle There’s optimization, and then there’s Mantle. Games enabled with Mantle speak the language of GCN architecture to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality. (Application support is required.)
  • newegg AMD TrueAudio Technology AMD TrueAudio technology brings the world’s first programmable audio pipeline, marking a new frontier in realism for PC gamers. AMD TrueAudio technology empowers game developers with a programmable audio pipeline on the GPU, inviting them to put their unique artistic fingerprint on in-game audio in the same way that the programmable graphics pipeline brought unfettered artistic vision to PC graphics. Enabled games can feature more realistic environmental dynamics, a richer tapestry of sound effects, breathtaking directional audio, and more. AMD TrueAudio technology enhances audio realism by simulating the human brain’s perception of real-world sound, working in concert with the user’s existing audio hardware to recreate a lifelike experience.

5 out of 5 eggsHIS ICEQ = Amazing

Pros: I have owned 4 IceQ series radeon cards and MANY other HIS cards over the years including this 290x and I have been floored with how reliable they are, how cool they stay on air (even in a mediocre case) and of course how they perform exactly as they should. HIS is probably the most underrated manufacturer of AMD cards. Oh yeah, iceQ cards are pretty much all dead silent too. I have two of these 290x's in a crossfire and can barely tell the PC is on.

Cons: They need to work on their marketing, and put some bling on their cards so the neophyte gamer masses will buy them. Looking slick is about the only place these cards don't outshine the competition.

Other Thoughts: A few people have said the card is bulky but when I see this all I can think about is how EVERY SINGLE high end video card on on the market is exactly the same size or bigger... yet these previous reviewers say their tech knowledge is a 5.... 2 would be more accurate. I would bet my next paycheck that most, if not all, of these people claiming their card doesn't work for them probably have another failure in the PC they can't find due to less than adequate knowledge of what they are doing. Don't get me wrong, all companies make duds from time to time but I don't believe for a second that I just happened to have used 20+ HIS cards that ALL performed perfectly for 3-5 years until they were replaced with an upgrade. I'm not that lucky.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Warranty

Pros: The warranty is a joke. It is designed to make you frustrated and go away. I do not know why this company drives away its customers by using a low rent middle man lexypacific to handle there middle man shipping needs. When all they do is tell you to contact HIS whom after a week or two says contact lexypacific. Run around and around.

Cons: If your card fails your are better off buying a new card from a reputable company. With a proven track record.

Other Thoughts: Being laughed at by lexypacific for being frustrated that the return RMA has taken 6 months so far and am still waiting for a card that works.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsNice Card BUT LOUD!

Pros: Solid, well built card. Not sure if it's quieter than stock cards but it's very quiet when not under load. Plays all games flawlessly and works well with Dual DVI and my 29-inch wide load monitor.

Cons: Hard to get power cables situated on top of the card. It took a lot of finagling and work to get them situated. Under gaming load it sounds like an F-16 on take off! HIS is known for "quiet cooling" not so on this bad boy. Long and heavy. Make sure you've a case and Mobo that can support this sucker.

Other Thoughts: Should've done more research into the noise levels on this class of card. Makes me long for my old 7750.

1 out of 5 eggsDissapointment

1 out of 5 eggsStamers and Stutters

Pros: Nice card but the new O driver will not work. 14.4 black screened flicker is terrible

Cons: can't comment since the flicker is so bad I can not run my computer

4 out of 5 eggsGreat cards

Pros: Two running in CrossfireX, no noticeable stuttering with the latest beta Catalyst driver. They OC well. 1150/1500 stable, no problem.

Cons: The stock coolers were insufficient for Crossfire. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I originally bought one of these cards and the temps were fine, I think around 72-75C after running benchmarks and games for a few hours.

Once I got the second card the heat from Crossfire was insane. This is not limited to these cards, all 290x cards are having heat issues. However the cooler on this card was not cooling well enough.

Top card was hitting 94C while the bottom card hung out around 84-85. This was with the fans @100% which is very loud. I expected some heat, but not this much.

I was able to mount two NZXT G10's with two Corsair H55's no problem in my full tower. After running benchmarks and playing Thief for around 3 hours, temps now top out at 58C on both cards.

If you are not running water cooling, either custom loop or AIO, be prepared for insane heat when running two of these.

3 out of 5 eggsreview part 3 (i should just make a review website)

Pros: blah

Cons: absolutely does not fit any type of waterblock which is a shame. I purchased myself a rev 2.0 EK waterblock to test on the card and still no success. This card probably could have hit 1300mhz core and I could have generated some hype for this model but too bad that HIS moved the screw holes or capacitors (one or the other) about 1.5mm away from the reference PCB which is the absolute stupidest decision they could have made. I don't understand why you would screw up a great over clocking card by making it incompatible with every single waterblock in existence(obviously not a universal one). This is a ridiculous issue to have and I have wasted 300 dollars trying to water cool a 500 dollar card. Whoo hoo.

anyway. I've written 3 reviews; 5 star, 4 star, and 3 star. averaging a 4 star rating which I believe this card is worthy of. but do not attempt to water cool it. After I provided my findings to EK they changed the compatibility for their waterblocks on coolingconfigurator and obviously, they make nothing compatible. nor does aqua computer. therefore its a fair leap that nothing will fit this cards PCB... complete shame and a waste of time and money.

3 out of 5 eggsNot a reference PCB

Pros: great card... already wrote a review (I'm the one a few down with the open bench case)

Cons: This card is advertised to have a reference PCB. It doesn't. it is extremely close though.

This card used additional capacitors to deal with the dual 8 pin power connectors and the capacitors they use are larger than the reference ones. thus. my aquacomouter waterblock won't fit. It sucks. so. I thought I would update my review. great card for air cooling, do not buy if you are going to use with a waterblock. which really sucks haha.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat card, unhappy customer

Pros: Incredible card that offers up to three monitor support and top of the line gaming.

Cons: *Bulky, tad cumbersome for smaller cases. MAKE SURE IT WILL FIT BEFORE BUYING.

Other Thoughts: Burnt out within two hours of use. I've tried running it in three different rigs to make sure it wasn't a software hick up or to insure something hadn't came loose.

I'm absolutely disgusted about this, however. To celebrate my paid vacation, I decided to indulge and two day shipped this card to myself so I'd have something to toy around with for the next two weeks while on vacation. Hell, this was going to be AMAZING. I even found someone to buy my old GPU to help cover the cost of my new card...


Instead, I get to RMA this card back after it burnt out within less than a hour and a half of usage. This was my first product from HIS and I'm not sure I'll be ordering one again due to their failure rate. Out of the six reviews thus far, three of the six reviews have mentioned the card failing within 24 hours.

I'm hoping HIS will compensate me for my two day shipping and RUSH me my new card. Extremely displeased.
