Product Features

iPower: More Voltage, More Overclocking!


Increased Power supply input for more voltage for overclocking! The extra PWM phase for core voltage provides extra power stability, lower temperature for power components!


Boost Clock is Faster!


The card has the latest Boost Clock technology, providing extra performance for the most demanding games and applications!


IceQ X² – Cooler, Quieter



With IceQ X², the card is cooler than the reference cooler.


IceQ X² is one of the quietest coolers, making the card quieter than the reference cooler. The card is below 28dB when watching movies, surfing Facebook, working. The card remains quiet whether you are gaming, online socializing, entertaining or working.

Fan Design

The super large 2x 89mm dual axial fans draws massive amount of cool air to cool the GPU directly.

The Q&C fan blade increases air velocity make cooling more efficiently while keeping noise level at minimum.

The fan is extremely durable with a life span of up to 50,000 hours.

3x 6mm and 2x 8mm wide heatpipes optimize cooling performance by removing heat from the core area.

The extra-large 40x47.5mm copper heatsink provides a large area to dissipate heat efficiently.

The card also carries memory and mosfet heat sinks to provide extra heat dissipation from these areas.

The card also features fan control and monitoring, you are able to read fan speed & Asic temperature from iTurbo or other softwares.
