HIS Radeon HD 6950 IceQ Edition Review

Rating: 9.0.

There are no shortage of modified AMD HD6000 series cards currently available on the market, and today we are looking at the latest HD6950 from HIS, featuring the infamous semi transparent IceQ cooler. The HIS ATI Radeon HD 6950 IceQ Edition is a custom design and based on past experiences we expect great things from the latest solution.

This HIS card is available via a special partner deal with Overclockers UK and retails for £221.99 inc vat.

The card is supplied with not one, but two excellent free games – Deus Ex Human Revolution and Dirt 3, worth £30 each.

HIS claim to have lifted the higher specification cooler from the HD6970 card which should lead to good results.

KitGuru – Children’s Hospice Charity PC Auction

We can all agree that the last 12 months have been challenging and stressful for everyone, and I wanted to utilise Kitguru in a positive way for a great cause. Over the next two weeks, we are holding a silent auction via email for our readers and supporters, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice. Additionally KitGuru will be donating the same amount as the winning bid, effectively doubling the donation to the charity. This is a very worthy cause that we want to support this year and everyone who enters will know that they are potentially going to help children in real need.
