The last two cards we've seen from HIS, which were based on the X1600 XT and X1650 XT SKUs, left us feeling somewhat disappointed. The X16xx series didn't have a great deal of poke, though, so perhaps it wasn't HIS' fault.
However, there's no room for excuses with the HIS X1950Pro IceQ 3. It's based on the impressive X1950 Pro GPU, which we already know is a good card for the money. As ever, the question is how does it fare against its competition? Read on to find out.
