HIS HD6950 IceQ Crossfire Review

Mafia 2

The single card performance is excellent in Mafia 2, far ahead of our expectations. The Crossfire average frame rate is about where we'd have guessed, but the brilliance of the single card score makes it look weaker than it is.

The Witcher 2

Finally the truly tortuous Witcher 2. With a single card and such extreme settings it's clearly a struggle for smooth playability on any single card, but the HIS does as well as anything in a similar price-range. With the second card deployed things change vastly as the HD6950 gets within 5 FPS of the mighty Mars 2.

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
