HIS Radeon R9 390X IceQ X2 Video Card Review - Most Unique 390X So Far

The Packaging


HIS has used some truly awesome box art on the Radeon R9 390X IceQ X2, with a tall box instead of the usual boxes we see our video cards arrive in. The entire box is splashed in a beautiful ice-theme, with shards of ice that remind me of the Fortress of Solitude, where Superman hangs his cape.




As you can see, the front of the package looks awesome with the crystals coming out of the ice with a huge 'IceQ X2' branding under it. Underneath that, we see that the HIS card is compatible with DirectX 12, uses the PCIe 3.0 standard, has 8GB of GDDR5, and supports 4K x 2K.





Another look at the card from an angle.

Inside, your video card is nice and secure with a layer of Styrofoam that will keep your card safe.



Detailed Look


I did say that HIS has one of the most unique Radeon R9 390X cards we've had the pleasure of using so far, and with our pictures below, we're sure you'll agree.




From the front, some people could be mistaken that this is a custom card created by a modder. But it's not, it's HIS and its unique take on the Radeon R9 390X, which I actually really dig.




The back of the HIS Radeon R9 390X IceQ X2 is also quite nice, with a black and white and very uniquely shaped back plate to keep the rear of the card cool.




HIS stayed on track with the usual display output configuration: DisplayPort, HDMI and two DVI ports.




HIS has used a single 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connector combo to power their Radeon R9 390X IceQ X2.
