HIS 5870 Turbo X Crossfire Review


HIS 5870 Turbo Crossfire Review


Anyone who was around for the last round of ATI cards, the 4870 series, will know how brilliant the HIS IceQ version was. Cool, quiet and fast it was definitely among the top echelons of the 4870s available.

Therefore we've been waiting with baited breath to see if HIS would apply this to the HD5870. Sure enough they recently released the HIS HD5870 Turbo, and then upped the clock speed and gave us the HIS HD5870 Turbo X which we have for review today.

Of course here at OC3D we don't just want to review a single high end card. We've gone through a few of those recently. Isn't it about time we did a lunatic Crossfire review? We thought so too and HIS were generous enough to supply our needs, so today we're reviewing the HIS HD5870 Turbo X in Crossfire. This should be fun.

Technical Specifications

If it's Tech Spec time, then it's time for us to go to the excellent HIS website and grab the data.

900MHz out the box. Lovely. But we all know you want the results, so let's have a quick look at the cards before we move on.
