" The HIS Radeon HD 4850 IceQ 4 Turbo is a well rounded Radeon HD 4850, as it takes an already great product and makes it even better. Also, the much improved cooler means that placing two of these graphics cards in Crossfire is more realistic, as they won't cook your system. Overall we have been highly impressed with the HIS Radeon HD 4850 IceQ 4 Turbo and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking at purchasing a new Radeon HD 4850 graphics card. " - Legion Hardware's Performance Award
" While only a fairly small overclock on the default 685/1100 settings, this certainly shows that HIS have pushed every ounce of performance out of the card already with the factory overclock. The IceQ 4 cooling system also did an excellent job of keeping the card cool, running at around 40c idle and 60c under heavy extended load (rthdribl)......As the results over the previous pages have shown, the HIS manages to pull ahead of the stock clocked Sapphire card by around ~10fps in most games at certain resolutions with even more room for improvement if you decide to further overclock the card."
" HIS the best product 2008 infokomputer in Indonesia "
"HIS's overclocked 4850 is quite a bit faster than Nvidia's closest competitor, the GeForce 9800 GTX+......The HIS Radeon HD 4850 IceQ 4 TurboX is impressively faster than Nvidia's GeForce GTX 280 almost right across the board......At the threshold of playability, it's around ten percent faster than Nvidia's GeForce 9800 GTX+ and less than five percent faster than a stock clocked Radeon HD 4850. "
" It does help to maintain the 4850's advantage over Zotac's overclocked GeForce 9800GT. If you own a 22-inch widescreen monitor, this card is a perfect match. It will drive any game maxed out at 1,680x1,050 with buttery smothness " - PCFormat Gold Award December 2008

Vietnam Overclocker Zone Forums Review
" The IceQ4 cooler that's on this card really hit the mark, offering lower temperatures than we're used to seeing for the HD 4850 without any extra heft. HIS has also pumped up the core speed on this TurboX......While overclocked, we managed to get tantalizingly close to numbers posted by the HD 4870, which is priced nearly $100 more than the HD 4850. With prices currently hovering just under $200 for the HIS Radeon HD 4850 IceQ4 TurboX, we think this card is a solid buy. " - HotHardware.com
" Two other features show how ingenious HIS was when developed the IceQ4 - keeping the reference card with its great cooler and adding the extra one in aluminium -cheaper, lighter and more resistent......No wonder the IceQ4 has received lots of press awards around the world! Besides working in total silence, its performance is excellent.!!......The factory overclock is a real push on the HIS HD 4850IceQ4 TurboX to compete with its "rival " 9800GTX+......We have a competetive scenario. In the 3Dmark03 HIS overclock was enough to make the 4850 faster than the 9800GTX+......for GRID it enlarges even more the meaninful adavantage of the 4850 (about 20%). "
