HIS is a company that finds its stride and continues walking down that path. With the introduction of the new 1080p/1440p champion GPU from AMD in the form of the Radeon R9 380X, HIS has released its Radeon R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB video card, and we're here to take it through its paces.
The company has been around for what feels like forever and only make video cards for Radeon GPUs. This means HIS can nail down what it does, and do it well. The Radeon R9 380X itself is a great GPU for 1080p and 1440p gaming, with some decent results at 4K if you reduce the details. We'll get into the performance side of it soon, but let's dive right in and see what is under the hood of the R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB.
There are a two different variants of the R9 380X from HIS, the IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB and the IceQ X2 OC 4GB. The different here is that the Turbo model is faster, with the GPU clocked at 1020MHz versus the 990MHz on the OC model.
So with the GPU at 1020MHz, we have 4GB of GDDR5 clocked at 5700MHz over a 256-bit memory bus. What's special about the R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB is the IceQ X2 cooler itself, which is one of the quietest coolers on the market.
While watching Netflix, videos on YouTube or your PC is just sitting there at idle, HIS promises the card is below 28dB. Even when you're gaming, the Radeon R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB is virtually silent.
