HIS are onto a real winner here with this card. If the aggressive price tag for the performance doesn't do it for you, the quality of the cooler is fantastic thanks to it being both cool and quiet. There's really not much more you can ask for from a card at the $219 price point and that's what makes it so appealing.
There's really not much more that needs to be said about the card, as the performance really does speak for itself. You can see today why the TurboX and IceQ series are two of our favorite and when you combine them you get a fantastic card that offers some great performance.
To have HD 6950 like performance at this price is just great and like we said, there's not much more you could ask for from a card like this. HIS has done a great job with the HD 6870 and it will be very interesting to see how they attack the HD 6900 series in the near future. If the IceQ X versions we've seen on the HD 6800 series along with the TurboX version we saw today is anything to go by, we're going to have some even stronger performing models from HIS in the future.
If you're after a HD 6870 that is going to perform like a HD 6950 out of the box, yet run cooler, cost less and be quieter, then this is the card for you. And really, who wouldn't want that? Just a great card from HIS that makes us very excited to see what is going to come in the future.
