The HIS Radeon HD 5850 1GB GDDR5

The HIS Radeon HD 5850 1GB GDDR5

The HIS Radeon HD 5850 comes with ATI's reference cooler and PCB design, and as such, looks like a shrunken version of the Radeon HD 5870. Like the other ATI Evergreen cards we have tested thus far, the cooler was decently quiet during operation. Besides the reference design, the HIS card also sports reference clock speeds, which means 725MHz at the core and 4000MHz DDR at the memory.
