Looking at the card, you can see it's similar to other IceQ X cards we've looked at due to the simple fact it carries with it the same cooler. In the past the cooler has proven to be very quiet and efficient and it will be interesting to see how it goes on this slightly lower end HD 6790, since the last IceQ X card we looked at was part of the HD 6800 series.
We mentioned in our initial review of the HD 6790 that there are a few configurations when it comes to the power setup. In this case it comes as no surprise that HIS have opted for the higher up dual 6-Pin one. Closer to the front we've got a single CF connector in the event you want to put two of these cards together.
When it comes to connectivity, HIS has opted for the all-out option which includes a Single-Link DVI, Dual-Link DVI, HDMI and two Mini-DP connectors. This is a strong lineup which supports Eyefinity that we tend to see on higher end ones.
Being part of the Turbo series means the card of course comes overclocked out of the box. The good news is that HIS has decided to overclock both the core and memory from the default 840MHz core clock and 4200MHz QDR on the 1GB of GDDR5.
As you can see above, HIS has decided to up the core to a nice round 900MHz, while the memory jumps another 200MHz QDR to 4400MHz QDR.
