HIS HD6950 IceQ Crossfire Review

Far Cry 2

Far Cry 2 has always enjoyed good results on the Radeon cards and the HIS HD6950 is no exception. Freed from the power and speed limitations that are imposed upon a dual-GPU single-card, in Crossfire it handily beats the HD6990 and GTX590, and is only headed by a GTX580SLI setup, which costs twice the price.

Metro 2033

Given the poor single card performance of Metro2033 as a whole we weren't expecting great things, but nonetheless the HIS HD6950 IceQ is poor as a single card and not amazing in Crossfire, certainly when compared to cards it has been beating in other tests.

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
