HIS has impressed us with the R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB, as it's a great video card for the mid-range gamer. But not only that, if you want to turn some of the details down, you can enjoy some 100FPS+ 1080p action without a problem in most games out right now.
AMD has positioned itself well with the Radeon R9 380X, thankful for its 4GB of framebuffer, it can handle 1080p and 1440p gaming without a sweat. There's not much overclocking headroom in the HIS Radeon R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB, but there's enough there to play around a little.
The card is completely silent. During all of our testing, it didn't make a peep. This is how it should be, especially as we head into 2016 with all of the new next-gen, 14nm cards around the corner from AMD in the form of the Polaris architecture.
Should you buy the HIS Radeon R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB? Yes, for sure. If you're after a card that can carve up 1080p and 1440p at 60FPS+, this is the one for you.
