HiS video card company has always been famous for building reliable cards using very efficient custom cooling systems. The cooling solutions developed by HiS are considerably more efficient than reference designs and generate less noise. This time, the card’s design is responsible for achieving the world’s highest 3D Mark Vantage score.
HiS’ Radeon HD 7970 video cards were stripped off of the company’s cooling system and were overclocked to a very high 1480 MHz GPU frequency. This is very impressive, considering the system was able to run four of these cards in a Quad CrossFire setup. AMD’s Tahiti GPUs are built in TSMC’s 28nm technology and have already proved their ability to achieve very high frequencies, as they hold several 3D Mark 11 world records.
The special part is the fact that the memory was running at an amazing 7640 MHz effective speed, and that the system was able to work stable in a four-card setup. Check out the hwbot website for more details on the record.
