The HIS X700 Pro IceQ Turbo VIVO 256MB PCIe Video Card
Introduction and Product Specifications
One of the major up and comers in the video card industry is HIS. In recent months, HIS has garnered some attention with several impressive additions to their product line. They put a major emphasis on overclocking, cooling and stability, while providing competitive performance. With such innovations as oversized, yet quiet cooling solutions and the ability to monitor and throttle fan speeds based on temperature, HIS is catering to enthusiasts who don't like to compromise.
Today, we are going to take a look at the HIS X700 Pro IceQ Turbo 256MB PCIe Video Card. Building on their experience with previous IceQ models, HIS introduces something new with this product, namely iTurbo. Along with a solid cooling package, iTurbo allows for instantaneous overclocking, while staying within pre-determined limits HIS has designated for the card. Let's take a closer look and see what HIS has to offer this time around.

HIS pulled together a terrific bundle to accompany the X700 Pro, including a detailed installation manual and setup CDs. The first CD provided the necessary drivers to get the card installed and working properly. The second disk included the iTurbo software which enables the card to run at a predetermined overclocked rate and allows for manual overclocking as well. Additionally, HIS included a series of software titles, including Video Studio, 3D Album and Counter Strike: Condition Zero.
Also included in the package were HDTV component cables, an S-Video Cable and a DVI-to-VGA adapter. The X700 Pro, with the included adapter, can be connected to an HDTV ready TV, or a traditional set with either the S-Video or Mini-Din to RCA cable. HIS gives plenty of useful options to connect the X700 Pro to a wide range of external components, further expanding its overall functionality.
