The Cards - HIS X1300XT

Last but not least is the HIS X1300XT which we looked at just the other day. For people who didn't read our Crossfire on a Budget article we will have a quick look at the HIS X1300XT again. If you did read the article, you may as well skip over to the next page to get stuck into the test system and the first page of the results.

We have our standard IceQ box which has the window in the middle so you can clearly see the card and the cooler that it comes with. We also have a list of our main specs for the card like the 256MB of DDR-3 memory included on the card and the fact that the card is an iTurbo model with increased core and memory speeds.

Moving to the back of the box we have our extended specifications, picture of the card, and some more key features running across the bottom along with just a small amount of awards that HIS have won of various models over the years.

Inside the box we have a pretty standard HIS line up. Included is a driver CD with a copy of the iTurbo software, DVD disk with Dungeon Siege and a few other goodies, manual, DVI to VGA connectors, S-Video to Component and an S-Video cable. While one of the larger bundles nothing that will get you too excited.

On to the card itself it is of course covered by the quite large cooler and doesn't let us see a whole lot. Turning the card over we can also see that there isn't much more then the back plate to keep the large heatsink fan in place.

Just looking at the I/O side of things for the last time we can see like our PowerColor and GeCube models, we have got Dual DVI ports again and our S-Video connector for TV out ability.

Clock Speeds

The HIS being an iTurbo model is quite aggressive when it comes to speeds. With the iTurbo software installed, a core of 587MHz is achievable and 1380MHz DDR on the memory. The iTurbo software is installed during all our benchmarks and the overclock is in effect.
