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.

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