The Card

 

Pulling the card out of the box, there isn't anything that we didn't already see on the back of the box, which gave us a pretty good run down of the card and its cooler that manages to take up most of the PCB.

We can see across the front of the cooler we have the IceQ4 logo along with the HIS one. Across the top of the card we can see part of the heatsink along with two heat pipes which help pull the heat away from the core.

Having a look around the card, there isn't anything we haven't seen on a HD 4850 before. The back of the card has a single 6-pin PCI Express connector. Looking across the top of the card we see two Crossfire connectors which we will fortunately be making use of today.

With the aftermarket cooler, the card is of course a dual slot solution. At the top we see some vents to help get the hot air out while across the bottom we see two Dual-Link DVI connectors and a single TV-Out port.

 

Specifications

 

Being part of the IceQ4 series, HIS has taken the time to overclock both the core and memory of the card to give us a bit more performance.

As you can see above, the core comes in at 685MHz which is way up from the stock clock of 625MHz. The memory has also had a healthy increase from 1986MHz DDR to 2200MHz DDR.
