HIS is preparing their latest Radeon R9 290X IceQ X2 Turbo Edition graphics cards. Information on this card has been leaked as it was listed on Overclockers UK. The card should be available sometime in 2014. The card features HIS’s IceQ X2 cooling solution and has factory overclocked specifications.
We do know that this card will be factory overclocked, but we are unsure of the specifications right now. It is good to know that this card will be overclocked unlike XFX’s Radeon R9 290X Double Dissipation card. HIS will be using the reference PCB and the card will get power from a 6+8pin power configuration.
The IceQ X2 cooler makes use of dual 89mm cooling fans, an aluminum heatsink stack, two 8 mm heatpipes, and three 6 mm heatpipes. As I we said this card should be available sometime in January, it was listed on Overclocked UK for £499.99.
