HIS X850XT and X800XL Graphics Cards - iTURBO is back again - Benchmarks - iTURBO Overclocking Results

HIS are back in the labs again this month with their latest generation of cards, the PCI Express versions of the ATI Radeon X850XT and X800XL. Both cards are part of the HIS IceQ II series which claim (and do) to offer better cooling than ATI reference cards as well as not exceeding 20db in the noise department. Both cards support iTURBO and the X850XT version even has a standard iTURBO overclocked setting which matches the clock speeds of the more expensive X850XT PE. That means you'll get the performance of the ultra high-end X850XT PE for the price of the high-end X850XT. Read on as we take a close look at both cards!

iTURBO Overclocking Results

 

In the following graphs we'll see just what type of performance we can expect when we overclock using the HIS iTURBO software.

 

 

In our first overclocked benchmarks, we can see that both cards benefit from the iTURBO overclocking however the X850XT benefits from it more due to the memory clock being pushed further.

 

 

Under Half Life 2 we don't see much of a performance increase but this is because this game benefits more from CPU and system memory speed increases rather than GPU side overclocking.

 

 

In Doom 3 we only see a slight performance increase with the X800XL but with the X850XT there is a decent jump in performance.
