HIS R7 260X iCooler 2GB GDDR5 Video Card Review

Videocards/VGA Reviews by stefan @ 2014-06-26

The second R7 260X video card we are reviewing from HIS is featuring a less complicated cooling system with a single 11-blade fan while the clocks are lower than the OEM version from AMD; this translates to 1000MHz for the GPU and 1250MHz for the memory. Despite the initial values, the card is quite overclockable and is succeeding to get dangerously close to the more expensive model.
