Introduction

The HIS 7870 IceQ, the latest 7870 to come from HIS, it features a custom PCB and cooler. At first look, the card looks huge! At 29.7 cm long it’s longer than even it’s much more powerful brother, the 7970.  The combination of a fairly low power 28nm GPU and a massive cooler should make for a very fun graphics card overclocking wise and hopefully, quiet too.

Box and Bundle

When compared to the last product I received from HIS, the 6950 IceQ, this is far more interesting. The box looks excellent and describes many of the features that the card has.

Similar to the front, the back also shows many of the features of the card.

The bundle includes:

CD driver

Installation guide

Crossfire Bridge

DVI to VGA adaptor

It’s quite a small package; I’ve certainly seen more feature packed bundles anyway.
