It's been a while since we've seen anything from HIS and now was really as good a time as any to see what the company has been up to with the HD 4800 series from ATI becoming such a popular line-up.
Today we're looking at not one, but two HIS HD 4850 cards; but in true HIS style they carry the impressive IceQ cooling solution. So what we'll do first is have a look at what's going on with the cards and see how the IceQ4 cooler looks.
From there we will test the cards individually and also in Crossfire form. What's also exciting about this round of testing is it's the first time we will be able to try Crossfire out on our new X58 testbed. Fingers crossed we don't run into any troubles!
