HIS shows its new HD 6970 cards

Written by Slobodan Simic

IceQ and IceQ Turbo Editions
HIS has come up with two new cards based on the Cayman GPU, the HD 6970 IceQ and the factory overclocked HD 6970 IceQ Turbo. Both of the cards feature the same, and quite well known, HIS IceQ dual-slot cooler and should be available pretty soon.

The new HIS HD 6970 IceQ ticks at a reference 880MHz for the GPU and 5500MHz for 2GB of GDDR5 memory while the factory-overclocked IceQ Turbo Edition ended up working at 900MHz for the GPU and 5600MHz for the same amount of memory. Since we are talking about Cayman GPU, both cards feature 1536 stream processors and a 256-bit memory interface.

Altough quite well known, the dual-slot IceQ cooler on these two cards is paired up with a "Black Hole Impeller" design fan and four rather thick copper heatpipes. According to HIS, this is enough to keep the card a lot quieter and up to 23 degrees Celsius cooler than the reference one.

Both cards have the same two DVI, HDMI and two DisplayPort output configuration as well as support for AMD's CrossfireX and Eyefinity. Unfortunately, HIS didn't announce the price or the precise date, but we are quite sure that they will show up in retail/e-tail pretty soon.

Was this article copied and pasted from techpowerup? http://www.techpowerup.com/146197/HIS-Radeon-HD-6970-IceQ-Turbo-amp-IceQ-Standard-Launched.html

Seems a lot of Fudzilla's articles appear shortly after other sites publish their own, hmmm...

Isn't that plagiarism? You could at least credit techpowerup for actually doing the work lol

It doesn't matter who is copying who..
As long as we have timely and accurate info...

anyway..the card's design looks really really awful..

The design reminds me of those spaceships from the beginning of Quake IV, when they orbit the Planet controlled by the Strogg.

I must say it's not so appealing, also they failed to install a larger fan, just look how much space is around that punny fan.

Also, if i'm not mistaking, i saw another board partner ready to launch a simillar cooler for a HD 69XX. I saw the article on techreport.com, it was one of the least known partners...can't seem to find the article atm.

I always liked their designs. My last IceQ card was the Radeon HD 3850 AGP which dissapointed me because it didn't had real copper pipes nor heatsinks, they were made of cheap metal and paintbrushed with copper like color, total fake, I hope this one is using real copper.
