HIS Logo

Initially, AMD released their HD 7950 Boost Edition as a custom BIOS that enabled the boost state on reference HD 7950 cards for a quick and easy performance increase. While the new design hasn't led to as many new releases as the normal models, some board partners have chosen to build custom cards based on that new BIOS.

The HIS HD 7950 IceQ X² uses a new cooler that was introduced to the company's lineup recently. It also comes with a nice overclock out of the box and highly capable dual 8-pin power inputs.

Pricing is quite reasonable with $320, given that it is just $10 more than a normal HD 7950 reference design card and significantly cheaper than the GTX 670, which offers a similar performance.
