HIS Radeon HD 3850 IceQ 3 TurboX (Page 1)

We've got a tricked up pre-overclocked HD 3850 in hand from HIS which we compare to NVIDIA's proven 8800GT for value.

Introduction

It's been a while since we've seen anything from HIS which is a bit of a shame as their IceQ series of cards have been one of the more stand-out models of ATI based graphics cards.

Fortunately, HIS are back at it again with the IceQ cooler in hand and some hefty clocks to go with it. There isn't anything too out of the ordinary here today; we have on hand the HIS Radeon HD 3850 IceQ 3 TurboX.

We will check out the package followed by the card and then get into some benchmarks. The 3850 tends to represent pretty good value for money, so let's see if HIS are able to uphold this trend that we have seen over the past few months.
