HIS Radeon HD 4870 ICEQ4+ TURBO Graphics Card

 

Introduction

 

If we've learnt anything over the last few years, it's never to write one of the two major VGA manufacturers off. ATI know that they can't extract enough power out of their current top cards to be faster than the two new NVIDIA offerings.

 

The red team aren't stupid, though. If you can't beat them in performance, you hit them in value. And in these tough economic times everyone's looking for a good bang for buck product.

 

Monthly driver updates from ATI still make the HD 4800 series of cards an attractive offering and today we'll look at what HIS has done with the top single GPU card from ATI. With a fancy cooler, some mean clocks and a decent looking bundle, the lengthy named HIS HD 4870 IceQ4+ TURBO could well be a card worth keeping an eye out for.

 

Let's have a quick look at what's going on with the package before we have a closer look at the card itself and an even closer look at how it performs against some other cards.
