So what do you exactly get for US$199 when you purchase HIS's IceQ X Turbo version of the HD 6850 mainstream performance videocard.
HIS supplied the usual driver CD, a basic user's manual and separate install guide, warranty registration and a case badge. Missing is any sort of included game.
The hardware kit is complete with a crossfire bridge, a DVI-VGA adapter and a 6 pin molex power supply adapter. There isn't anything else needed to get this card up and running.
And at last you unpack your new HIS IceQ X HD 6850 Turbo graphics card. As seen above, this is NOT your average HD 6850. With a cool looking and equally impressive cooler installed, settling for this version of a HD 6850 wouldn't be such a bad idea in a windowed case. But more on the cooler in the upcoming pages.
