3dgameman video review HIS HD 6870 IceQ X TurboX 1GB GDDR5 Video Card is an all around amazing video card. Considering the overall performance vs. price, this video card will win the hearts of many hardcore gamers on a budget. Also, this is the turbo version with a core speed of 975MHz and the 1GB of GDDR5 256 bit memory is 4.6GHz DDR.




How much watts should I have in my power supply for this card?


Can you tell me if it will fit into a CM Storm Scout or will i need something bigger


Lol some people say ' im upgrading from a HD5660' well... im upgrading from a GeForce 210


Hi rodney. Thanks so much for your very informative video reviews. I always check your channel first before buying new pc parts.

I have just one question though, which way does the airflow blow on this card towards the GPU or does it suck air away from it?

I need to know if my case airflow setup needs some modding before I buy this one ;) Thanks!


Rodney what happened to you, why are you getting such low views on YouTube??

Thanks for the review Rodney! I think this card is great and will be my next upgrade from my current vga (HD 4870)... again really appreciate this review. Quite a good performer and in my opinion, one of the best looking coolers ever made.


high end video cards are dead. pc gaming migrated to the ps3 and xbox 360 and you know what is important about these two consoles?! that they are in direct x9 and no one gives a damn about it. what does that mean?! it means buying higher end video cards are a waste of money! besides, what games are you playing on the pc? the good games are the ones that use less specs, starcraft 2.


about the 360 and ps3,did you notice when gaming on your highend pc that suddenly you have the urge to mod your current game so you press the tilde button and add 1000 gold and enable god -mode then turn up the anti-alaising to 32x and have an urge to increase your tesselation and shadows and smoke effects.so you do this and your pleased.then you alt-tab out of the game to check a walkthrough and read an email,then jump back in and away you go,lol.

CONSOLES ARE O.K FOR BLIND KIDDIES,not good for me though,sorry !!!!

bad packaging, no anti static bag, just a plastic box with some foam?

im pretty sure the plastic box is anti static, a lot of manufacturers are switching to more eco friendly packaging. Maybe the plastic is easier to recycle??


Realy no benchmarks?

There are benchmarks in the video review, but it's time for Rodney to add DX11 benchmarks.
