CHINESE HARDWARE MAKER Hightech Information System (HIS) has announced its upgraded HD6950 graphics card range will be available from 14 April.
Its graphics card lineup consists of three cards and comes with 1GB or 2GB memory options. The range starts with the HD6950 Iceq X, which has a core clock speed of 800Mhz and a 5GHz memory clock speed.
The middle of the three is the HD6950 Iceq X Turbo with a core clock speed of 840Mhz and a memory clock speed of 5.12GHz. The top of the line is the HD6950 Iceq X Turbo X. This card has the fastest clock speeds of 880MHz and 5.2GHz, with HIS claiming it's "the world's fastest HD6950".
The cards feature high definition technology that can display 3D content at HD 1080p, provided you have the appropriate accompanying hardware. This can support 3D gaming, 3D Blu-ray and third party stereo 3D middleware software with its AMD Radeon HD6800 Series GPU.
The AMD Radeon PCI-Express HD6950 range supports DirectX11 and comes with dual DVI ports, a single HDMI port and two mini display ports. The INQUIRER has requested prices for the cards, but to get an idea, the HIS HD6950 is currently available in the UK for around £200. µ
