Introduction

Hightech Information System (HIS), an original ATI launch partner, gained a lot of respect when they first released their IceQ line of graphics cards that featured Arctic Cooling's now legendary VGA Silencer. People were amazed at how well they performed and how quietly they operated. The cards rightfully received many recommendations and awards from online and print publications.

Knowing a good thing when they make it themselves, HIS has continued the line to this day and it now consists of more than a dozen different makes and models of IceQ and IceQII graphics cards, all cooled by Arctic Cooling coolers. In this review I'll be taking a look at HIS' main-stream 256MB X700 Pro IceQ Turbo.

HIS continues to provide one of the better software bundles with their retail cards. The games they include are pretty old and don't help to show off the card's power, but they are pretty popular games and should last for a few days of enjoyment at least. There's also an interesting Bonus DVD that's full of various utilities, applications, and demos. Of course, all the cables and adapters that you'd need to take advantage of the IceQ Turbo features are included as well.
