The HIS HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo 1GB GDDR5 Video Card comes pre-overclocked, is packed with excellent features, massive cooler with a quiet fan and is affordable. This is without a doubt, one of the best bang-for-the-buck video cards on the planet. If value for your money is what you are after, this is it!
I hate HIS for installing this particular cooler, because I prefer an external erhaust cooler, like the 4850 ICEQ.
this is a really cool looking card. I know this will fit better in my antec 300 case than an HIS HD 6870 turbo (other card in consideration) but man I like that specs on that card a bit better.
I guess this will be easier on power requirements especially in crossfire than the HD 6870 but, Im still stuck dont know whether I should buy a monster PSU and get two HD 6870's or spend less money have a more roomy case less wattage PSU and crossfire two Ice Q 6850's .
im building a computer here.
whoops i said that wrong the 6970 is the real power monster the 1 GB 6870 turbo doesn't need that much more power than the 6850 turbo. but it will take up more space in a case than a 6850
I'll stick with my MSI 560 oc. :)
That's a very cool looking(see what I did there? haha =P) design on the cooler of that card, performance is good aswell, good review Rodney.
7.1 Audio? does it mean that this cards output audio via hdmi?
Rodney, do you have a Q&A Video that explains how HDMI audio works on these newish video cards? :)
Closing in on review #1200... Have anything special for us Rodney?
Nice looking cooler on the card. Looks a lot like the Asus 460.
The translucent sea-green fan and shroud is very nice!
6:00 Rodney's hand puppet conversation.(Near top of video window.)
LOL... Yea, I use my hands a lot when speaking ;)
original style for sure
i think i'll be looking for the 6950, not cause of price wise but cause it uses 2x6 pins like my card right now, dont wanna use more energy = electric bill hurts
Not everyone's going to buy a 6900 series card due to cost or excessive size. At $180 price point, it would be perfect for mid-tier gamers or even college students.
Exactly, bang for the buck is massive on the 6850 series video cards.
It's waste of money purchasing that IceQ Turbo Card. Nobody is going to buy that!
Really depends on what you want. If you want a video card with a neat looking cooler and is pre-overclocked this is an option. Fact is, not everyone has the same tastes and budgets.
I'm sure alot of people are going to buy that card. Care to add some reasoning behind your statement?
@00:26, i hope you didn't say that because of my comment the other day, sorry, i hope i didn't upset Rodney, i was only trying to help /shivers; i've always watched the whole video (or both videos in the past).
since i'm wasting internet space with my comment.. any idea when HiS will send the 6900 series cards for a more than kickass rating? thanks, again.
Heck no, your comment made sense. I'm always open to suggestions and recommendations :)
I like the old IceQ coolers better, the IceQ 3 and 4 for the 3870 and 4870 were pretty much the sickist looking coolers evar.
Nice bluish-green cooler! :)
