Pros
- Silent work
- Good performance/price ratio
- Reasonable price
- Runs cool
- Good overclocking

"The HIS iCooler series graphics run cool and quiet which is all we could hope to expect from a graphics card with this type of cooling. Also, the R7 250X and 260X cards from the iCooler series are showing a good culture of work. We had no problems with stability or temperatures on both of the reviewed graphics cards.

Looking at the performance, we have to consider the graphics cards' price. In this case some gamers would say that these cards are slow. On the other hand, it is hard to find faster graphics cards in similar price.

All who decide to pick these cards for daily work and casual gaming will not be disappointed. Considering that the most popular monitors are still offering a 1080p screen resolution, then these cards should be a good enough, inexpensive option."

HIS has succeeded to transform it into a great deal for the second time, by including the proven two-slot cooling system which is equipped with two 89mm silent fans. Through the heatsink fins we will find no less than five heatpipes, which keep the GPU plate nice and cool during heavy load.

Talking about the overclocking capabilities, we would like to remind again that the product features a mild overclock, but with the help of the iTurbo utility we have succeeded to surpass the performance of the 7970 GHz Edition. The total of 3GB graphics memory allow the card to perform admirably even at resolutions over Full-HD but be careful when setting the detail levels since we will often drop under 60FPS while using resolutions of 2560x1440 or 2560x1600.

“The HIS Multi-View adapters are something unique on our market. We do not often see any similar products and we cannot really find any competition to HIS Multi-View at the moment. Here comes the Muliti-View adapter with a USB connector which solves all of the issues with the lack of additional video outputs. The installation and configuration was really simple. Flawless, "plug and play" configuration is for sure a big advantage especially when you are moving with the computer frequently. A quick, one-time driver installation lets you easily connect to additional displays on any other workplace. “


“The HIS Multi-View adapters are great devices that I can recommend to everyone who needs to connect additional displays to their computer but lacks the additional outputs or graphics card functionality. With the HIS Multi-View, everyone can take advantage of larger workspace without spending much money.”

“Pros:
•    Small form design
•    Cool and quiet
 
Both cards run very cool and quiet, while being frugal with power requirements, and could suit anyone looking for an affordable upgrade without having to overhaul a system or splurge for a new power supply. We typically see very good cooler designs from HIS, and these two cards are no different. Posting load temperatures up to the mid-60s Celcius on the 260X, and only 59°C on the 250X, it’s great to see such cool running cards here. The 250X in particular would be well suited to an HTPC setup. It’s got strong performance, but not the unequivocal king of the hill in its price range.”

“This is essentially a re-brand of the HD 7790. HIS works their magic on the reference based card by putting on their latest iCooler to help keep the card much quieter and cooler than the reference model. This is the “iCooler” version of the R7 260X, so HIS has put their all aluminum cooler with what looks like a 100 mm fan to help keep the card cool and quiet (SPOILER ALERT: they succeeded!). The card optimizes DirectX® 11.2 gaming performance automatically up to 2.5 times faster! It also offers up to 4.5x compute performance and up to 95% lower GPU Idle Power Consumption! iCooler is Quiet – The card is equipped with iCooler, making it extremely quiet and noise level is less than 28dB. You feel the quietness  when viewing photos, browsing webs, checking your email and playing movies in UVD mode.”

“It features good performance, runs cool and quiet, absolutely sips power, and is easy on the wallet! The card enables a “quality graphics” experience on everyday applications, giving huge performance boosts on image processing, file compression, media converter apps, and a lot more! The iCooler did a great job keeping the card cool. Even better, it did so at an almost inaudible noise level. Even if you set the iCooler to 100% fan speed, it’s still barely noticeable. Again, great for a HTPC application or in an environment where low noise is important. ULTRA HD videos have resolution four times that of current HD videos, meaning images too clear that may deceive your eyes! Get your eyes impressed and enjoy mind-blowing graphics with extreme clarity, depth and texture!”

"It’s got strong performance and got all of AMD’s new features here, including support for OpenGL, DirectX11.2 and the Mantle API. You also get 1080p gaming at high settings and of course the 4K UltraHD gaming and movie capabilities. This card runs wonderfully cool and quiet, and for $260, you really can’t go wrong."

“With the release of the Radeon R9 290X series AMD brings an incredibly fast product to the market. It rocks all performance scores in pretty much any game to date. Having that much raw unadulterated horsepower under the hood will bring options to the table. You play your games at 2560x1440 and flick on every quality setting that you can think of. Even then the cards will do a terrific job. The product is often as fast or faster than a GeForce GTX 780 Ti and Titan, whilst it is going to be priced a good chunk lower. The HIS R9 290X is an attractive product with 4GB of graphics memory that will bring a significant amount of gaming performance into your PC.”

“HIS offers a fun graphics card for not a lot of money. Over a 260 I'd take a 260X model anytime, any day. The extra shader processors and 2GB of memory bring in a good deal of value to the product. The 260 is priced fairly, expect 90 to 100 EURO incl VAT. I stated this in the reference review already, we feel that both the R7-260 and 260X could have been a notch faster as they lack just that little punch to fully qualify as a 1080P gaming card. Overall though these are really handy cards to play simple games and excellent cards for an HTPC. Kick in an extra few tenners and you'll notice there are much better alternatives available when it comes to performance though. The HIS Radeon R7 260X iCooler is a very decent and okay product, decent card for the money decent in performance. Overall we can recommend it as an entry level gaming product that offers value for money.”
