We have never used it, but this is the description on the NATIONAL GYPSUM website:

1/2" High Strength Ceiling Board

Description

High Strength™ BRAND Ceiling Board is a specialty gypsum board with increased uniformity and integrity of its gypsum core, making its sag resistance equivalent to 5/8" type X wallboard.

Applications
  • 1/2" High Strength Ceiling Board is specifically designed for ceilings where framing members are spaced up to 24" o.c. and a water-based texture will be used.
Features & Benefits
  • Available nationwide as a stocked item at all National Gypsum Co. gypsum plants.
  • Excellent working characteristics, improved score and snap properties reduce the need for rasping.
  • Excellent sag resistance. Witnessed test results show overall sag on tested assembly to be equivalent to 5/8" type X wallboard. Test report available upon request.
  • Eliminates need for two wallboard sizes on the job. Scrap from ceiling is reduced since this material also can be used on the walls.
  • Greater nail holding power.
