HIS HD6770 IceQ X Turbo Crossfire Review

Far Cry 2

We would assume the old Far Cry 2 would follow the example set by COD and MoH, but actually the HIS HD6770 is decimated. A single-card just cannot provide a playable experience and the Crossfire setup just keeps things hovering around the 60 FPS mark on average, although it quickly gets chuggy when a lot is going on.

Metro 2033

The major improvements in driver performance allow Metro2033 to end our review on a bit of an eyebrow-raising surprise. We've written long and often about how a single card has a ceiling in this game but a two-card setup flies. Such it is here with the HIS HD6770 IceQ X Turbo in Crossfire proving a match for a GTX590 or HD6990.

They are pretty impressive in crossfire, especially in Metro, I thought there was something wrong with the results when I saw they were on par with a 590/6990 .

If you want a cheap crossfire set up for 202 two of these are worth it, but for a single card, as said in the review the 6850/70 are the better cards to go with.

Would you say that these 2 cards at idle are quieter than a reference 6950, and would on the whole perform better? I wonder how these cards would perform @ 5760 * 1080 across 3 monitors (not maxed out obviously)?

These cards are now 76.99 on aria so for 153.98 you can get GTX 580 beating performance!!!

these are good results for sure.....im just wondering how realistic they are tho???

im not so sure that anyone considering these cards has an X-58 mobo and i-7 processor@4GHz backing them up......

now if you used an AMD Pii 955 X4 would your results be the same???

im not say'n.......im just say'n

Well they are realistic because they are the results we obtained. However although we can understand that the kind of person seeking out a setup such as this is unlikely to run X58, that is our test setup. If we changed the underlying system every review then we couldn't compare anything to anything else and would be swamped with "but how does it compare to the xxx ??". At least this way each card is, driver changes aside, reviewed on the same rig and so you get a pure performance comparison.
