HIS Showcases New Graphics Card with Improved UVD GPU

The line of graphics cards manufactured by HIS has been recently replenished by an alternative Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Boost Clock model. The card takes a modified graphics adapter from AMD and is based on Tahiti PRO chip, developed according to 28 nm technological process. This chip houses 1792 current processors which are designed under an advanced Graphics Core Next architecture.



One of the major technological peculiarities pertained to a new model is the implementation of a unique two-slot IceQ cooler that involves an aluminum heatsink, four copper heat pipes and low-noise powerful fan. As claimed by the manufacturer, the integrated cooling system exceeds the cooler applied in the reference model in terms of heat dissipation power and noise. Hence, noise level produced by IceQ does not exceed the boundary of 28 dB; at the same time, it reduces the GPU temperature at 12 degrees as compared with the reference model.


To continue, Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Boost Clock is based on a …
