HIS Radeon HD 5670 IceQ 512MB / ASUS EAH5670 1GB video card review

A couple of weeks ago, we saw AMD continuing to push forward with their current advantage in the DirectX 11 graphics ecosystem, bringing this latest technology to even lower price points with the launch of the Radeon HD 5670.

Today, we take a look at another pair of Radeon HD 5670 boards, both of which look to differentiate themselves by way of including custom cooling solutions, while these particular offerings also allow us to examine any performance difference between the 512MB and 1GB variants of this SKU currently available on retail shelves.  Is 1GB necessary for this level of GPU, or is 512MB simply not enough to cut the mustard in gaming terms these days?

Join us as we put ASUS' EAH5670 1GB and HIS' Radeon HD 5670 IceQ 512MB through their paces, to see what they both have to offer anyone looking to pick up a DirectX 11 graphics board on a budget.
