HIS announced two new HD 6850 models that use their own PCB design and cooling solution. The IceQ X versions are 13°C cooler and 7dB quieter compared to the reference cooling solution, to achieve that it utilizes four 8mm heatpipes to transfer heat to aluminum fins which are ventilated by one 92mm fan. To give the cards a unique icy look the cooler is encased in frosty blue somewhat see trough plastic housing. HIS is offering two variants, the normal model operates on reference clock speeds of 775/4000MHz (GPU/Memory), while the Turbo edition comes factory overclocked to 820/4400MHz. As for connectivity, we get two DVIs, one HDMI and one DisplayPort.
