HIS RADEON ICEQ TURBO X1650XT INTRODUCTION



I have to admit, videocard buyers are getting better and better at picking out the product that has the best value for the dollar. In most cases before, name brand ruled the roost whereas all secondary manufacturers were deemed inferior just because they has a less common brand name. Gladly, that thought process is a thing of the past. HIS is one example of a company that a couple years ago was not very well know in the videocard industry, but through complete product packages and sound quality has established a following. In my mind, they are the best bang for the buck on the market today.


Today I will be reviewing HIS's mainstream option that is readily available online through most retail channels. Not only does it perform well, but it comes with a software and hardware package than makes it US$150 or less price point an extreme value. Not everyone wants or needs a screaming fast videocard, but their are options like the X1650XT that are for the mainstream consumer that doesn't want to settle for a lower end product because they don't need an enthusiast card.


Stick around, this might be the card for you.

  • Make the most of sophisticated 3D games – such as Prey and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - with intense shader properties

    In tests comparing the performance of five popular games against competing same-class cards, the X1650 achieved significantly higher performance ratings thanks to increased GPU frequencies, more advanced memory technology, and outstanding shader capabilities 1 .

The Radeon X1650 series delivers high dynamic range lighting (HDR) effects and full screen anti-aliasing (FSAA) simultaneously while displaying in excess of a billion more colors than competing graphics cards. Plus, it's a recommended graphics solution for Windows Vista™ 2 .

  • Choose not to compromise between HDR effects and FSAA

    The Radeon® X1K family are the only graphics boards on the market to combine Full Screen Anti-aliasing (FSAA)—the most advanced anti-aliasing technique in the world—with high dynamic range (HDR) technology.


  • Witness a billion more colors in all of your graphics applications than you would with competing graphics boards 3

  • The Radeon X1650 scores 123 out of a possible 130 points in HQV tests, the highest score of any graphics card 4

    The X1650 is the industry leader in its class in video performance according to HQV testing, the standard method of measuring the picture quality of DVD playback.


  • Avivo display technology guarantees sharpness, clarity, and realistic colour reproduction

    Avivo uses proprietary video scaling technology to display crystal clear images on high resolution displays. Video images sent to your display will be hardware accelerated for superb viewing.
