HIS HD6950 IceQ Crossfire Review

Crysis 2

The sequel to Warhead, Crysis 2, is very much a schizophrenic affair. In DirectX 9 it's able to produce playable frame-rates on anything, but with the 1.9 patch and Hi-Res texture pack it can bring even beefy systems to their knees.

DirectX 9

The single HD6950 gets very close to the magical 60FPS result and in Crossfire it gives us the highest average frame-rate we've yet tested.

DirectX11 Ultra

With everything to the stops the HIS HD6950 starts to struggle. The single card score is almost unplayable, and adding another card just about makes it playable, but it doesn't get remotely close to the results we saw in the DirectX 9 testing.

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
