Introduction

Video cards have actually been really quiet lately. The fact that both AMD and NVIDIA have had the current crop of models out for a while means that most companies have exhausted ways to make them stand out from the pack.

 

Still, with that being said, it's not dead completely. So today we're looking at a HD 6770 from the peeps over at HIS. The HD 6770 is a great mid-range model, but we haven't seen companies do heaps with it. It's also one of the more recent VGA releases, so that could have a bit to do with it as well.

 

Today, though, the HD 6770 we're looking at from HIS carries with it our two favorite labels - IceQ X and Turbo. We know exactly what that means; we've got a nice upgraded cooler that falls into the IceQ X series and the Turbo label means the card comes overclocked out of the box.

 

So let's see what HIS are doing with the HD 6770 IceQ X Turbo we've got on our hands today. We'll start by looking at what's going on with the package and once that's done we'll take a closer look at the card itself before we take a look at the specifications to see just what kind of overclock is offered on the card when compared to a stock clocked one.

 

Once all that's done, we'll get into the performance side of things to see just how the HD 6770 IceQ X Turbo performs before we wrap everything up in our final thoughts.

The whole package while taking a bit of a beating in transit, was all good once we opened it up. Inside we've got nothing out of the ordinary with a driver CD, manual, sticker, DVI to VGA connector and dual Molex to 6-Pin PCI-E power connector. The stand out would have to be the inclusion of the Dirt3 coupon which can be used to get a copy of the game.
