HIS Releases HD 7970 IceQ X^2 GHz Edition

Published: 25th Nov 2012, 23:47 GMT

HIS Digital currently offers two IceQ X^2 graphics cards. This includes a Turbo variant and reference clocked model. Today HIS also added a GHz Edition of its flagship graphics cards, making it a sixth Radeon HD 7970 graphics card in the offer.

Despite using a similar cooler, the X series already include two models with the Boost technology. Actually,  there aren’t  many changes, even the clock are the same.

The new HiS 7970 IceQ X^2 GHz Edition (H797QMC3G2M) is clocked at 1000/1050 MHz (base, boost) with an effective memory clock at 6 GHz . Card is equipped with 3GB of GDDR5 memory across 384-bit interface.

The IceQ X^2 is a dual-slot and dual-89mm-fan cooler which is featuring five heat pipes. It is said to provide 17 degrees C lower temperature than reference design. The card is requiring two 8pin power connectors to utilize almost 35 Amperes more, it’s definitely an overclockers card, but you have to ask yourself first if you prefer just an average power consumption or an ultimate performance.

Pricing and availability have not yet been revealed.
