The HIS HD 5870 iCooler V Turbo is based on the AMD 'Cypress' ASIC, part of the 'Evergreen" family. As a first tier AMD add-in board partner, HIS manufacture custom designs and variants of the reference AMD circuit boards and coolers. The HIS HD 5870 iCooler V Turbo is not only custom cooled, with a centrally mounted axial fan, but the core GPU and memory are overclocked out of the box, too.

The iCooler V heatsink and fan design has been seen before on other HIS designs, leaving the factory overclock and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 branding as distinguishing features.
HIS Bundle Details
The HIS HD 5870 iCooler V Turbo packaging is svelte and compact, not much larger than the card itself. The card itself resides in a clear plastic hardshell to protect it during shipping. The hardshell sits under a cardboard tray containing the accessories included with the card.
A steam key for Infinity Ward's popular (but rapidly dating) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is included, along with an HIS driver and application CD and free copy of Bumptop - a 3D Desktop organizer application recently purchased by Google and withdrawn from distribution. HIS also includes desktop wallpaper and a calendar. Two four-pin dual Molex to 6-pin PCI Express power adapters are included, as well as a standard Crossfire bridge and a DVI to VGA adapter. Included with the CD is a HIS case badge and quick install guide, and a reminder to join the HIS Kingdom of Gamers, to receive e-news and extra benefits.
