HIS Radeon HD 6970 2GB Turbo Video Card

HIS was quick out of the gate with the HD 6870 Turbo and today the HD 6970 gets the same treatment. Is it worth paying extra for the overclock?

Introduction

I've always liked the Turbo series from HIS. It's not my favorite series from the company, with me personally being a larger fan of the iCooler series, but more importantly the iCooler Turbo series which carries the benefits of an upgraded cooler and benefits of that pre-overclock.

 

What the Turbo series offers us, though, is quick to the market pre-overclocked cards, because as just the "Turbo" series and not the "iCooler Turbo" series, the model carries with it the reference cooler which ultimately means that all HIS need to do is find a stable clock speed.

 

The Package

Checking out the box and package, it's all very HIS with no real surprises being found. Apart from the normal paperwork, driver CD and sticker, we've got the standard cable line up which includes both a dual Molex to 6-Pin and to 8-Pin.

 

Also included is our standard DVI to VGA connector and CrossFire cable. It would've been nice to see a mini-DP to DP adapter as they can be a little hard to come by at the moment, meaning it's a little bit of a pain if you want to use a DP connection.
