HIS rolls out factory overclocked HD 6870

Works at 920MHz

HIS is one the first partners that has decided to roll out a factory overclocked HD 6870 card, the HIS 6870 Fan Turbo. Although it is still based on AMD's reference design and has a reference cooler, HIS decided that it is enough to keep the card running at a rather modest but still a factory overclocked settings.

The card works at 920MHz for the GPU and 4480MHz for the same 1GB of GDDR5 memory. Bear in mind that the reference card ended up clocked at 900MHz for the GPU and 4200MHz for memory. The card still packs 1120 Stream processors, a 256-bit memory interface, and support for AMD CrossfireX and Eyefinity. It has two DVI, single HDMI 1.4 and two DisplayPort 1.2 outputs.

We are quite sure that more partners will follow once AMD gives a green light for a non-reference/custom cooled cards. The new HIS is already listed in Europe for as low as €265.13. You can find it here.
