HIS is the first company to bring us a pre-overclocked HD 6800 series card. It comes in the form of the higher end HD 6870 and falls into the Turbo series.

Introduction

HIS has come out fast this time with a pre overclocked card and to be honest, they need to. AMD-only partners like them need to make sure the interest is constantly there for AMD based video cards and they figure the best way to do this is get a pre overclocked model to the market sooner rather than later.

 

Falling into the Turbo series, one we know and love, the HD 6870 Turbo is no doubt going to carry with it a bit of extra power over a stock clocked model. Before we find out how much extra power is on offer, though, and at what clocks it's being offered at, we'll first check out the bundle HIS has put together before having a closer look at the card itself.

You're not going to see anything we haven't already seen with the HD 6870 from HIS; the box is very similar with the main difference being some Turbo markings. Inside we've got the driver CD, manual, sticker along with a couple of power convertors, a DVI to VGA convertor and our Crossfire cable.
