HIS Radeon HD7870 IceQ Turbo 2GB "GHz Edition" Video Card
Posted by Don Douglass
It's round three of the AMD HD7000 series video card launch cycle and still NVIDIA have yet to fully show their hand, and until they do these new video cards are going to cost an arm and a leg. In this article we take a look at the more moderately priced (compared with the 79XX series) HIS Radeon HD7870 IceQ Turbo 2GB "GHz Edition" video card armed with AMD's Pitcairn 28nm GPU Core. The 1GHz milestone of the previous generation of video cards has been thoroughly thrashed with this round, the HIS HD7870 Turbo has a factory overclock of 1100MHz on the GPU core and still has a little bit of room for overclocking. Sure enough it will run your favorite games with high settings at 1080p but with an msrp of $379.99 you might want to check your finances before you click that buy button.
