HIS IceQ X Turbo Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 H687QNT1G2M 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 920MHz
  • 2 x DVI (1 Single Link, 1 Dual Link) 1 x HDMI 2 x Mini DisplayPort
  • 1120 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 2.1 x16


The card is generally pretty quiet. I picked it up to replace a Gigabyte 4870 card (which I'd upgraded with an Accelero cooler & 120mm fan), hoping to increase my Crysis 2 PC performance at 1920x1080 yet not ramp up my PC's sound profile. The card is a bit louder under load, but quickly ramps down after gaming is done.


I experienced repeated crashing in Crysis 2 after a few minutes of play. Turning down the card's mild overclock, 920 to 900, helped a lot, but was an unexected requirement from the "IceQ X Turbo" overclocked card. Fallout 3 is crashing within minutes of starting, even with the lower clock. The latest Catalyst drivers are installed.

Other Thoughts:

This ongoing phenomenon of being hassled with rebates to get a lower price is quite irksome, I wish vendors would settle on a moderate price decrease for all instead of a slightly larger one for those who want to waste their time jumping through hoops.
