The Card

Checking out the card, you're again not going to really see anything that you didn't see from the HIS HD 6870 we already looked at. On the cooler the main difference is the Turbo marking to let you know we're indeed working with the Turbo model.

Doing a quick spin around the card, you're going to see our two 6-Pin PCI-E connectors at the top of the card, single CF connector at the front and connectivity is in the form of a Dual-Link DVI, Single-Link DVI, HDMI and two Mini DisplayPorts.


Specifications

HIS hasn't gone too crazy with the overclock. Being such an early stage, it's safe to say that companies haven't quite found the maximum safe overclock they can offer yet. We're sure that HIS will again attack overclocking when we see the IceQ series greet us.

At 920MHz the core has been bumped by 20MHz which isn't huge. Fortunately the memory has had a slightly more significant boost moving from 4200MHz QDR to 4480MHz QDR. We're not going to see huge gains from the overclock, but the increased memory speed should clearly separate it from a stock clocked card.
