HIS HD5830 Review
A Closer Look
Compact would be the word that springs to mind. The main box is dominated by the Modern Warfare 2 logo which is a curious choice. If anything is likely to sell a £210+ graphics card it's unlikely to be the thought of Modern Warfare 2, a game most people will have played a thousand times already.
Perhaps if you're torn between two models the thought of a free game will do the business.
Opening it up we find the standard adaptor cables as well as a nicely laid out manual and CD combination that makes a lovely change from the normal paper wallet that driver CDs come in.
Finally we get to the HIS 5830 Turbo. No-one will be in any doubt that this is an HIS product, nor that this is the Modern Warfare 2 variant.
It's nice to see a full-card non-reference cooler. Anything that helps exhaust the heat out the back of our case is always welcome.
On the rear we have the near-standard Radeon 5 series ports of HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI-D.
