HIS HD6950 IceQ Crossfire Review

Crysis Warhead

When we were heavily testing Crysis Warhead, before hardware overtook the capabilities of the engine, we used to get some very quirky results. Since graphics cards are now capable of performing well our results have been more consistent. Quite why the average frame-rate is identical both with one card and two in the Gamer settings is a bit beyond us.

With all the detail ramped up the HIS makes a much better fist of things, especially in Crossfire, beating out even the GTX590.

I have seen a few reviews for the various IceQ edition cards and most of them mention about the cooler not being up to scratch which I find amusing since this is meant to be the main selling point. They also mentioned how the performance compared to other version was not up to scratch either, WTF, HIS?

I'll give it one award though: The ugliest cooler design ever award
