The HIS Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo remains one of the best options available to gamers shopping for a sub-$200 GPU, it features 454 million less transistors than the Radeon HD 5850's Cypress XT core, this allowed AMD to shrink the die from 334mm2 to 255mm2, making the Radeon HD 6850 more fuel-efficient.

In terms of performance, against the GTX 460, the 6850 stumbles in a few games, so there's some consideration there, plus the lack of PhysX and CUDA obviously can be a factor, particularly if you're into Folding @ Home. The 6850 is retailing for...

HIS 6850 IceQ X Turbo 1GB GDDR5 competes well in its class with the numerous modifications of GeForce GTX 460/460 SE. Of course, a lot depends on actual prices. Just remember that the Radeon HD 68xx series is not to compete with the Radeon HD 58xx...

The Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X is definitely a better buy than the basic HIS model. It has a more effective cooler and a more flattering design and is one of the better Radeon HD 6850s we’ve tested. The only small reservations we have is that the fan makes a...

The HIS HD6850 IceQ X Turbo is already overclocked out of the box and therefore performs even better than the HIS HD6850. It also has more headroom for overclocking and thus can rival even the HD6870. Additionally, the impressive IceQ X cooler that...

After concluding this review i have to say that HIS lived up to our expectations. The Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo 1GB is a very good card for the buck and although not equal to more high/ultra-end cards out there still it packs quite a punch...

Lower mid-range graphics cards are easy to lose in the clamour about higher-end cards but not the HIS Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X. Like its IceQ X predecessors this Radeon HD 6850 is treated to an enhanced cooler that HIS claim can run the card 13ºC...

The HIS Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo is a rock solid no-frills HD 6850 card. It comes with higher clocks out the box, which are in the middle of typical HD 6850 out of the box overclocks. This can help the card gain a 6% performance advantage, averaged...

price tag. The product is based on a nice component selection including the all new IceQ X series cooler. But HIS added two new Radeon HD 6850 cards to its lineup: the IceQ X and the IceQ X Turbo. Both models are equipped with the IceQ cooler, this...

HIS Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo leverer rigtig god ydelse for pengene, forudsat at prisen kommer til at ligge tæt op ad konkurrenternes Barts Pro-baserede alternativer. Om den forventede pris, se nedenfor. Fabriksoverclocket er en attraktiv bonus,...

La Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X est assurément plus intéressante que le modèle basique de la marque. Elle profite d’un ventirad plus efficace et d’un design plus flatteur. Il s’agit assurément d’une des Radeon HD 6850 les plus intéressantes à être passées...
