HIS Teases New Radeon R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock Graphics Card

HIS is glad to introduce one more high-end solution: the Radeon R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock graphics card that is targeting high-performance PC systems. The model employs turbine-type cooling system with a branded IceQ cooler. It consists of a voluminous copper base (35x28 mm), an aluminum heatsink, four nickel-plated heat-pipes (2x 8 mm and 2x 6 mm), as well as a single 80 mm turbine fan. Such cooling is ideal for multi-GPU configurations in AMD CrossFireX mode, since the distance between adapters does not influence the efficiency of their fans.

The new-comer is based on AMD Radeon R9 280X GPU (28 nm, GCN) with 2048 stream processors. It runs at standard frequencies: 850 MHz – nominal and 1000 MHz – dynamic. Memory is introduced by 3 GB GDDR5 modules, which run at standard 1500 MHz frequencies and reach some 6000 MHz effective index.

To continue, HIS Radeon R9 280X IceQ Boost Clock features four connectivity interfaces: a pair of mini-DisplayPort ports, one DVI-I and …
