Many are still waiting for NVIDIA to release the rest of their 28nm line-up, and AMD have already shown their full hand. The question is; do you buy now or wait to see if you can get a better deal? Waiting is a vicious cycle and something better will always come out after you make your choice no matter how long you hold out. Just don't wait too long to make your choice, there are plenty of video cards to choose from right now without speculating about what doesn't yet exist.
In this article we take a look at the HIS Radeon HD7850 IceQ X Turbo X 2GB 'GHz Edition' video card armed with AMD's Pitcairn 28nm GPU Core. This is the fastest HD7850 that HIS produce and we intend to overclock it even more to see how much faster it will run. Benchmark Reviews aims to provide you with an unbiased review of the HIS Radeon HD7850 IceQ X Turbo X 2GB video card and report back our findings, keeping you informed on the latest technologies available on the market today.
For this review we have a comparative range of video cards in our usual mixture of DX10 / DX11 synthetic benchmarks and current games to get a good idea where it fits in performance and price wise. We also intend to overclock the HIS HD7850 IceQ X Turbo X to its limits and see if the 'IceQ X Cooler' really has what it takes to cool the GPU and other components effectively, so without further delay let's move on and get stuck in.
