HIS Radeon 6870 IceQX

Graphics Cards

Conclusion

Here we have a solid performing card that fits its price bracket, occasionally hits above its average and has some very effective cooling which would make for even more impressive overclocking if some unlocked software was made available.

Just under £200 is still quite a lot, but this is the latest generation of GPUs. Give it a couple months and a next gen announcement and you’ll see this one drop right down to the £120 mark making it a seriously good purchase.

Pros

  • Strong performance
  • Effective cooling

Cons

  • Cooling is still a bit noisey
  • Doesn’t overclock much more
  • Price isn’t that mid-range, a little high
