HIS Officially Launches A Pair of HD 7970 IceQ X² Graphics Cards

HIS today launched two new graphics cards models based on the AMD Radeon HD 7970 GPU, the HIS HD 7970 IceQ X² (model: H797QM3G2M), and HIS HD IceQ X² Turbo (model: H797QMT3G2M). The two differ by clock speeds, with the former sticking to AMD reference clock speeds of 925 MHz (core) with 5.50 GHz (memory eff.), while the latter is overclocked out of the box, with 1050 MHz (core) and 5.60 GHz (memory eff.).

Both models use HIS' newest IceQ X² cooling solution, which uses a three 6 mm and two 8 mm nickel-plated copper heat pipes to convey heat drawn directly from the GPU die, to a dense aluminum fin array, which is ventilated by two quiet high-airflow fans. Both cards use blue-colored AMD reference-design PCBs to gel with the IceQ theme. HIS did not give out pricing or availability information.

Looks cool, but no black PCB!
hmm.. with black PCB it would have looked better..

the cooler(sink & shroud) is longer than the PCB, i wonder what the length of this card is..
length of reference 7970 is 280mm, so this must be 290+ (guessing)

might be a tight fit in some cases?
