    HEXUS.reviews :: HIS X1900GT IceQ3 Dual DL-DVI VIVO 256MB

    Join us as we take not one, but two of these cards for a spin, evaluating single- and dual-card performance along the way, pitting the HIS X1900 GT IceQ3 against an X1950 XTX, GeForce 7950 GX2 and SLI'd 7900 GTs. This should be fun...

    nice review. the card is available from ocuk i believe.

    also a possible reason for the poor (dongleless) crossfire was that when it was originally suggested I think ATI said it would need 2 x 16x pci-e slots to accommodate the data flow between the two cards; the x975 provides 2x8 speed pci-e. just a thought?

    Gives the 7900GT a run for it's money too, that suprised me a little. Like to see how it fairs against a 7950GT. Supposed to be getting that review today aren't we?

    Should give you an idea of how much quicker 7950 GT is than 7900 GT

    Core clocks well too, you say. I'm sorely tempted but my bank balance says a 7800GT is fine for now

    If it wasn't for that pesky phone bill I could have a GTX

    Blue and red? Perhaps not the most inspirational combination of colours, but we won't knock any points off for that.
    Yeah you're right but when paired with my luverly DFI Lanparty it clashes badly! I can't blame HIS for that I suppose. Not worth the upgrade from my lowly X1800GTO right now. I'll wait for DX10...
