[H]ardNews 9th Edition

HIS Radeon X850XT IceQ II:

T-Break has the HIS Radeon X850XT IceQ II in house for a few rounds of benchmarks. Like all high end cards, folks love the performance but hate the high price tag:

Again, a pretty good card from HIS and while it offers great performance, we would recommend waiting a bit for prices to drop. Even though it performed well in the Price/Performance ratio, we think that spending over $600 on a single video card is a bit too much.

HIS Radeon X800XL IceQ II Turbo:

If you gotta have a X800 series Radeon with the IceQ II cooling but the X850XT is out of your price range, this HIS Radeon X800XL IceQ II Turbo might be a better deal for you.

Amongst the endless amount of clones out there this Radeon X800XL graphics card stands out as something different, something special and something more!

Be sure to check out our X800 series round up for comparison purposes while you are at it.

VisionTek Radeon X850XT:

Continuing the whole Radeon review trend we got going here today, Driver Heaven has posted a 20 page review of the VisionTek Radeon X850XT for your viewing pleasure.

It would be hard NOT to recommend this card over a competitor's considering the lifetime warranty and the claims of toll free tech support with minimum "on hold" times.
