HIS Radeon RX 570 IceQ X2 Pictured, Detailed

More and more AIB cards from AMD's upcoming RX 500 series are letting themselves be seen in the wild as we approach the official release date (April 18th) of the new series. However, as usual, sellers are already stocking up on new cards for sale, and some of them jump the gun on sale of new products.

Such was the case with the HIS Radeon RX 570 IceQ X2 - apparently, a vietnamese retailer is already shipping the cards as we speak. The card is based on the new Polaris 20 XL GPU, packs the same 2048 Stream Processors as the RX 470, and is clocked at 1266 MHz, with 4GB GDDR5 memory @ 7 GHz. Compared with the previous series' RX 470 IceQ X2, which had a GPU clock of 1244 MHz, the clock increase stands at 22 Mhz, which should yield a comparably tiny increase in overall performance.

swap places of 1244 and 1266

True in a way i guess. But it's supposed to be LPP instead of LPE and lower power and clock higher and stuff. Let's see

The chip itself is externally identical, there is no point designing a new PCB etc when all the difference is inside the chip.
AMD didn't even bother putting faster memory on the RX 500 series, so why should HIS bother with a new design.

Idk like marketing maybe? Attract more people to buy a newly designed card rather than regurgitating an old design.

22 Mhz more? Nice!
OMG, forget about RX Vega, we got extra 22MHz here!

Rumour is Vega is only 25Mhz Faster and $120 more expensive and not available for another 4 months ( then again you know what the rumour mill grinds out).:roll::p

Looks like they haven't learned their lesson and are still using low quality cheapo Chinese fans that will go poo in less than 12 months
