HIS HD6950 IceQ Crossfire Review

3D Mark 11

The single card befits its pricing as being better than its competitor from nVidia the GTX560Ti, but not quite as good as the GTX570. When paired up though it really flies, being better than a GTX590 and not far behind the HD6990. Impressive performance when you consider this is about £440 rather than the £600+ of those dual-GPU cards.

3D Mark Vantage

The Vantage result is great in the High test, being just shy of the HD6990 in Crossfire and ahead of the GTX570 for the single model. The P-Score is exactly where we'd expect on a single card, but the Crossfire doesn't give the boost we'd expect, certainly when compared to how well the High score does.

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 Quote
