We can't help but be impressed with what HIS has presented us with their X700Pro IceQ Turbo graphics card. It offers good stock performance which can be increased to speeds almost equaling that of the X700XT with the iTURBO overclocking software and even further if you are feeling game. It offers stylish cooling which works well and includes thermal throttling so noise isn't an issue either. It offers a very workable package which includes many connectors which will well and truly get you on your way.
This graphics card makes for the perfect upgrade from the older X600XT (or anything below you might be using) which as our benchmarks showed really struggles in today's current games. We saw anywhere from a 50% to 150% increase in performance from the hot X700 and sometimes doubled with the use of it's officially supported overclocking ability, we find it hard to pass up this killer card which we struggle to find faults with.
We haven't received any details on pricing as yet but we expect it will fall into the $199 - $249 US price range which is really quite good for what you are getting - a funk graphics card with plenty of overclockability providing enough bunch to provide a good solid gaming experience in today's most popular and intensive games.
HIS has hit the nail on the head with their X700Pro IceQ Turbo graphics card and it should make a lot of enthusiasts happy like it did for us. Keep it coming, HIS!
