Today we have another HIS product up for review. This time it is their Excalibur 9800 Pro IceQ version which is part of their Enthusiast class product line. We will give you the grand tour of this card and also look into their IceQ cooling system featured on this card. We are looking at their 128MB of DDR memory version as opposed to their 256MB of DDRII version which is also available.
We have touched on HIS as a company in our last video card review of their 9600XT Turbo graphics card, so we will skip that part and move right on in to the review. For more information on HIS as a company, please visit their website.
Let's move on to see what kind of bundle HIS has put with their 9800 Pro IceQ.
HIS has included a driver CD, PowerDirector 2.5, PowerDVD 5, and a 6-in-1 CD with the following Game Demos: Comanche4, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down, Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, Tom Clancy: Black Thorn, Vietcong, and Worms Blast. Also included is a User Manual, 4-pin power splitter, S-Video to Composite adapter, S-Video cable, Composite video cable, and a DVI to VGA adapter. The last thing included is your very own Half-life 2 coupon for whenever the game is finally released.
HIS has added a few more things than just their standard package for this Enthusiast level card like a full length composite video cable and the 4-pin power splitter. So, the HIS 9800 Pro is ready to be used to its full potential.
On to the card!
