    Default HIS 7850 iPower IceQ Turbo and CrossFire

    Adding a second card to boost gaming performance certainly has its positives, but a few potential downsides can exist. Does it make sense to add a second HIS card or upgrade to a 7970 instead? Let's find out as we look at the HIS iPower IceQ Turbo in single card and CrossFire configurations.

    Damn Jake, the IceQ 7850 seems to have mindbogglingly awesome scaling in Crossfire. Almost 100%. That's remarkable.

    The card is ugly as sin, but the performance is very sexy. Wonder if there's a waterblock for this card.

    Good review Jake. These cards do pack a lot of punch for the money in crossfire.

    The look of them isn't so bad, as long as you have plenty of room between them for good airflow.
