AMD Radeon HD 7850 Reviews:
bit-tech.net: Despite the HD 7800 series? mid-range claims, the HD 7870 2GB is a pricey card thanks to what looks to be a ?275 price tag. That still leaves a whopping ?150 price gap in AMD?s line-up down to the ?130 HD 7770 1GB and it?s into this gap that the HD 7850 2GB fits.
hardwaresecrets.com: The new Radeon HD 7850 is a mid-range video card based on the latest GPU architecture from AMD, dubbed "Graphics Core Next" or simply "GCN," which supports the new PCI Express 3.0 connection and the latest DirectX version (11.1). Let's compare it to its main competitor, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
rage3d.com: AMD previews the AMD Radeon HD 7800 series, codenamed Pitcairn, before it's March 19th debut. Is Pitcairn the spiritual successor to the people's hero, RV770?
techpowerup.com: Today AMD released their new Radeon HD 7800 Series, which is based on their new 28 nm Pitcairn graphics processor. The HD 7850 and HD 7870 offer a significant performance increase over the previous generation - up to 40% faster in our testing. Power consumption is also at a new record low, putting these cards in the leading performance per Watt spot.
tweaktown.com: While the HD 7700 series left us feeling overall pretty flat, the same can't be said for AMD's new HD 7900 series which offered us awesome performance. Along with strong numbers, though, we saw the new 28nm based cards run cooler, quieter and draw less power at both idle and load - they impressed us a lot.
anandtech.com: In 2009-2010, AMD launched the entire 4 chip Evergreen series in 6 months. By previous standards this was a quick pace for a new design, especially since AMD had not previously attempted a 4 chip launch in such a manner. Now in 2012 AMD?s Southern Islands team is hard at work at wrapping up their own launch with new aspirations on quickness. Evergreen may have launched 4 chips in 6 months, but this month AMD will be completing the 3 chip Southern Islands launch in half the time ? 3 chips in a mere 3 months.
bit-tech.net: While AMD should be lauded for being first to market with 28nm GPUs, we?re still a little confused by AMD?s 7-series product line-up. With the 7970 3GB portioned off into its own ?super-high end? ?450 bracket and the HD 7950 3GB hitting at around ?350, the arrival of the HD 7770 1GB at ?130 left a rather large ?220 hole for the new 7800 series cards to fill. With today?s arrival of the HD 7870 2GB and HD 7850 2GB, we?re coming closer to completing the picture, and of the two, it?s the HD 7870 2GB that?s the most intriguing.
hardocp.com: AMD's "Pitcairn" is finally here, the Pitcairn GPUs, also known as the Radeon HD 7800 series, are probably the most anticipated series from AMD this generation. These more affordable mainstream GPUs are what gamers everywhere have been waiting to hear about. The Radeon HD 7970 and Radeon HD 7950 sit high on the throne in performance, and price. The Radeon HD 7970 and Radeon HD 7950 encompass the price range above $399. The more affordable price range between $199-$399 will be taken by the Radeon HD 7800 series, and we can finally show you what AMD has produced, and how it performs.
hardwareheaven.com: Today AMD launch the 7800 series and allow us to look at their reference cards with partner availability to come later (around March 19th). With the same features as the 7900 series yet a significantly lower price today we find how well they compete with the 7950 and 6870 while looking in detail at the comparison with NVIDIAs GTX 560 Ti and GTX 570.
hothardware.com: Here we are, less than three weeks removed from the launch of the Radeon HD 7700 series, and AMD is already at it again. Today we?ll be showing you the first two members of the Radeon HD 7800 series of graphics cards, the Radeon HD 7870 GHz and Radeon HD 7850. These two graphics cards are based on yet another new GPU design, which features AMD?s Graphics Core Next architecture, or GCN. Whereas the high-end Radeon HD 7900 series cards feature AMD?s Tahiti GPU and the more mainstream Radeon HD 7700 series is based on the company?s Cape Verde GPU, the new Radeon HD 7800 series is built around a GPU codenamed Pitcairn..
legionhardware.com: March is a new month for AMD and it means a new set of Radeon HD 7000 series graphics cards for us. The new Radeon HD 7800 series includes the HD 7870 and HD 7850 and both are designed for serious gamers. Based on the same GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture as the Radeon HD 7900 series, we are expecting good things...
legitreviews.com: The AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition ($349) performed better than the AMD Radeon HD 6970 ($364.09) and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 ($329.99) and in some cases it was trading blows with the mighty GeForce GTX 580 ($449.99). When this card becomes available on March 19th, 2012 we expect that pricing on other cards on the market will be adjusted. This card was very powerful and in some benchmarks and games we found it being only slightly slower than a stock Radeon HD 7950 3GB card that costs nearly $100 more. The AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz edition card is solid and ideal for those running...
tbreak.com: The AMD HD 5800 series was one of those rare times in the industry where a relatively mid-ranged card goes above and beyond the call of duty to give high-end results. The 5800s instantly became the darling card of choice for PC enthusiasts everywhere, and indeed are one of the most popular and widely used graphics cards to date. A look at the Steam Hardware Survey shows that the HD 5800s are indeed much more popular than the HD 6800 series released in 2010. It stands to reason then, that AMD would want to capitalize the success of those cards by providing a spiritual successor in the form of the HD 7800 series.
techreport.com: At long last, AMD has filled the gaping hole in its next-generation Radeon lineup. A new pair of graphics cards bas come to slot in right between the high-end Radeon HD 7900 series and the decidedly less high-end 7700 series, offering gamers some fresh meat at $249. And today's arrivals have the potential to be AMD's most compelling next-gen offerings yet.
techspot.com: AMD?s latest generation GPU series is really starting to take shape now. Having been blown away by the performance of the Radeon HD 7900 series and then let down by the steep pricing of the HD 7700 series, we are keen to see what AMD has to offer with the new HD 7800 series.
