HIS HD6770 IceQ X Turbo Crossfire Review

Test Setup

We're testing the HIS as both a single card and in Crossfire today. As well as our standard battery of tests we've got a few just to see how well the cards scale as well. Hopefully the multiple Catalyst updates since the original launch of the HD5770 will enable our HD6770 IceQ's to surprise us.

2x HIS HD6770 IceQ X Turbo
Catalyst 11.7 Drivers
Intel Core-i7 950 @ 4GHz
ASUS Rampage III Extreme
Muskin Joule 1200w
6GB Mushkin Redline
Noctua NH-D14
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Alien vs Predator

With the IceQ coming in at around £100 we're obviously not expecting our single card to give blistering performance, but still 30 FPS at these high settings isn't bad. The real surprise is the Crossfire setup being faster than a GTX580. Half the price, equal performance. Exactly what we like to see.

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.Quote

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)?Quote
