- HiS x800 XT IceQ II VIVO Limited Edition

Looking out for a state of the art new video card? Then you might want to feast your eyes on HIS's new top of the line card reviewed by the folks at Guru3D today. This of course based upon ATI's new flagship 16 pipeline monster, the x800 XT. At the moment HIS are offering a "limited edition" version with their exclusive "IceQ-II" cooling solution which allows them to provide a slightly higher 'out of the box' 533mhz core speed. The bundle included with the card is quite a generous one to top it all off too.


With regard to the pic below, as quoted :-

Well well well... it's that time, finally! The new ATi graphics cards family is hitting re- and e-tail for sure. That means manufacturer reviews are just around the corner. It's always good fun to compare the manufacturer models against the ATi reference models. Today we will be reviewing the spanking new ATi Radeon x800 XT from HiS. HiS, my friends means Hightech Information System, a Hong Kong company that has been growing rapidly in Europe. They offer products with a reputation, products that set themselves aside from the competition.

A P4 3.2 GHz CPU is no long just a P4 3.2 GHz CPU. In fact, it comes in three different types now. Confused about some of the naming conventions Intel has been using lately for their new CPUs? Let's take a closer look at Intel's P4 3.2E and we will clear up some of the letter designations that Intel has tacked on to their CPUs.
