HIS X700Pro PCI-E Graphics Card - X700XT Equaling Performance - The Package

Today we take a close look at the HIS X700Pro IceQ Turbo including the impressive overclocking ability close to that of the Radeon X700XT which uses the new PCI Express interface and compare it against the older ATI Radeon X600XT VPU and see what is different and how it affects gaming performance in popular games such as HL2, Doom 3 and Far Cry.

The Package

 

While the most exciting part of this product is not the package, it is still quite good. First up you receive a bunch of CD's including the full version of Counter Strike, drivers, the HIS overclocking utility along with other software for DVD playback and video editing seeing as the card supports VIVO.

 

 

The software package while not overly impressive is adequate and what you would expect these days. Moving on to the cables we have a standard S-Video cable to output your display to a TV, S-Video to RCA adapter in case your TV doesn't have S-Video inputs, proprietary VIVO cable which gives you connections for RCA and S-Video input and output, HDTV which is another word for component - R(ed)G(reen)B(lue) - for high quality output to devices such as a plasma screen and a DVI to VGA adapter if you want to run dual CRT displays. All of these connections are powered by the very capable ATI Rage Theater chip pictured below along with all the cables pictured further below.

 

 

 

As far as the cables go, the package is pretty good. It's enough to get you more than started with your new graphics card.
