HIS 6950 IceQ X Turbo X 2GB
We’re fortunate here to have the opportunity to muck around with some of the best hardware that money can buy. Processors, motherboards, graphics cards, you name it. But at the end of the day we’re also consumers; we do buy hardware, believe it or not. Beyond that, we’re gamers like many of you, and with those two things in mind, we’re always on the lookout for some great value when we shop.
AMD’s 6900 Radeon cards, and specifically the 6950, have been pretty good on that front, offering strong gaming horsepower at respectable prices. Aftermarket power designs, factory overclocks, and custom coolers are hallmarks of partner products, but the value can be suspect, sometimes paying a premium for such features.
Today we’re looking at the 6950 IceQ X Turbo X 2GB graphics card that comes with a competitive price of $250 after rebate, one of the least expensive out there. Featuring a custom heatsink from one of HIS’ popular designs, it’s got quite a unique aesthetic with a translucent shroud and sleek nickel-plated heatpipes to lower temperatures and noise levels. We’ve seen some of these HIS designs lately run cool and quiet, so let’s see if the 6950 IceQ X Turbo X can continue that trend.
