Close up with the HIS R7 260X iCooler 2GB
Looking at the card, you can see it's a lot smaller than the cards we've recently looked at. Although, being a mid-range card doesn't mean it can't have a serious looking cooler. While the iCooler may not be as large as the IceQ versions from HIS, you can see it takes up a large portion of the card, with the large fan sitting on top of a chunky aluminum heat sink.
Looking around the card, you can see that while the R7 260X 2GB is a mid-range offering, it still carries a single six-pin PCIe power connector. Closer to the front, you can see that the model also supports CrossFire with a single CrossFire connector found at the top of the card.
Finishing up our look at the card, you can see the model looks quite healthy in the I/O department. There are two Dual-Link DVI ports; one is DVI-D, and the other is DVI-I. Alongside those two ports, we've got a HDMI and DisplayPort connector to round things off.
While looking at the model name, you may notice that HIS doesn't mention anything about the card being a Turbo model. So, with that said, you can see that the HIS R7 260X iCooler 2GB carries standard clock rates, which means the core clock comes in at 1100MHz, while the 2GB of GDDR5 comes in at 6000MHz QDR.
Normally, we would take the time to overclock a model like this since it carries reference clocks speeds. However, it's been so long since we've seen an R7 based card, we thought it would be better to just leave the card at its standard clock rates to see how it performs in our benchmark line up as is.
