HIS ICEQ VIDEOCARD PRODUCT FEATURES



IceQ Cooling Technology


The IceQ cooling system draws cool air from inside the case and exhausts warm air outwards. This prevents the fan from recycling warm air to cool the VPU, which increases cooling performance and lower the air temperature inside the case significantly.


Blockbuster Graphics Performance for High-Definition Gaming!


The HIS X850 series advances High-Definition Gaming with blockbuster features, including SMARTSHADER™ HD, ATI's highly advanced pixel shader engine. With up to 16 parallel pixel pipelines and up to 43 billion shader operations per second, the HIS X850 series delivers the power serious gamers need. SMOOTHVISION™ HD combines advanced texture filtering with ATI's revolutionary 3Dc™ image enhancement technology to deliver brilliant image quality without comprising performance. 3Dc™ has quickly become an industry standard for supporting complex, high-definition visual effects in real time.


The solution for extreme gaming


With its sophisticated board design, the HIS X850 series is the ultimate technology for today's newest and most demanding games. Power throttling technology together with the complex fan control system vastly improves overall stability and performance. The HIS X850 series also features ATI's incredible display architecture, now with dual-DVI support. With output to HDTV capability, big screen multimedia and gaming is now larger and sharper than ever before. Users can simultaneously view on analog and digital monitors, including TV or HDTV, for the ultimate gaming, multimedia and applications multitasking experience.


HIS iTURBO Utility


HIS iTURBO easy to use interface provides a flexibility way for users to adjust the VPU clock, memory clock and fan speed, with the features of VPU temperature and fan speed monitoring.
