HIS Announces Radeon HD 7850 IceQ X² Turbo 2 GB Graphics Card

With GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost stepping up the heat, AMD partners are beginning to roll out newer Radeon HD 7850 graphics cards. HIS announced a pair of Radeon HD 7850 2GB graphics cards, featuring custom PCB and cooler designs, named HD 7850 IceQ X² and HD 7850 IceQ X² Turbo. The HD IceQ X² features AMD reference clock speeds of 860 MHz core, and 4.80 GHz memory; while the HD IceQ X² Turbo features a factory-overclocked GPU, running at 1000 MHz. Both cards feature 2 GB of memory

Both cards feature a compacted IceQ X² dual-fan cooler by HIS. The cooler uses a copper heat-pipe fed aluminum fin stack, which is ventilated by a pair of 75 mm fans. HIS claims the cooler runs at 28 dB when idling, and keeps the GPU cooler than AMD's reference design cooler. The PCB features an 8-phase VRM, which the company claims, can supply 66 percent more current than AMD's reference design PCB VRM. Pricing varies by region, but we expect the cards to be competitively priced around the GTX 650 Ti.

Please bench this card with the latest driver 13.5. I strongly believe that 7850 1GHz will left 650 Ti Boost very far behind.
