HIS HD6770 IceQ X Turbo Crossfire Review
We've always been a fan of the lower-end graphics cards available. There is something enjoyable about finding a gem of a card at a really affordable price that gives us a grin.
One company that have always done their best to push these value cards hard is HIS Digital. They've never been shy about ripping the reference cooler off and using their own, and more often than not giving the GPU a mild overclock.
These low-end cards have usually been great when paired up in Crossfire, and so that's what we're going to do today.
Despite being labelled as a HD6770 card, this is really a rebadged HD5770. We've got the Juniper GPU tied in to 128bit Memory. 800 shaders are married to 16 ROPs and 40 texture units. So it's a 5770.
Thankfully HIS have done their very best to breathe new life into it with the IceQ cooler and a speed tweak to the GPU. A free copy of Dirt 3 will help the reality of buying a graphics card from the last generation go down a little smoother.
