HIS HD 5870 iCooler V Turbo review

Rating: 8.0.

KitGuru has been concentrating recently on many mid range boards, however today we are going to be looking at the high end custom HIS HD5870 graphics card, a product we know that will get you excited.

The HIS HD 5870 iCooler V Turbo is completely redesigned and it ships with a iCooler V heatsink and a customised PCB layout which offers a more cost effective production. The core speed is increased by 25mhz and the memory also gets a 100mhz effective bump. If you like free games then this bundle also ships with the excellent Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The icing on the cake is that the card is only £20 more expensive than the reference design, so on paper it appears to be very good value for money.
