HIS joined the Radeon R9 270 launch party with its IceQ X² graphics card. It features the compact IceQ X² cooling solution carried over from a similar R9 270X SKU, with factory overclocked speeds of 950 to 975 MHz core, and an untouched 5.60 GHz memory. Based on the 28 nm "Curacao" silicon, the R9 270 features 1,280 stream processors, 80 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory. HIS may charge a small premium.
