Today at KitGuru we are going to be looking at the HIS IceQ 5 Turbo 5770 I GB graphics card. In the efforts to attract the educated enthusiast audience HIS have enhanced the reference solution and used their IceQ 5 cooling technology on this particular unit.
The 5770 has established a good hold in the budget gaming market, offering the latest DirectX 11 features, 1GB of GDDR5 and a 128bit memory controller. We are going to match this card up with suitable partnering equipment today to show just what level of gaming experience we can have with a budget system.
HIS has increased the Core clock speeds on their IceQ 5 Turbo from 850 MHz to 875 MHz and increased the memory clock from 1200 MHz to 1250 MHz which is an impressive ‘out of the box’ configuration, but since KitGuru readers tend to be obsessed with speed we hope there is significant headroom when we get around to manual overclocking later.
As a site we usually focus on UK prices and deals but this time we thought it was about time that Kitguru had some coverage with reviewer views from across the ocean in Canada.
