We visited HIS earlier in the week to bring you the first benchmarks of ATI's Crossfire, but today we're able to show you the rest of the company's offerings.
Radeon X850XT PE cards have been in short supply since the announcement by ATI some months back, but they're now starting to hit the market in high volumes. Of course, HIS had its X850XT PE card (with their regular heatsink/fan unit) on display, as well as a regular X850XT card with its new IceQ II Turbo cooler installed.
The interesting part about this was that HIS ran a demo comparing the cooling performance of both coolers, with the X850XT overclocked to X850XT PE speeds. The X850XT PE with the more basic cooling system ran at 97 degrees C, while the X850XT wth the IceQ II Turbo ran at 58 degrees C. Impressive!
HIS also showed us its ATI RD400 and RD480-based motherboards, both of which are Crossfire ready. Most Crossfire units we saw were using ATI reference boards, so this is a refreshing change.
Finally, like most graphics card manufacturers, HIS had an X550-based card on display, which as you can see in the below image is scheduled to launch on June 15.
