+ - AMD Radeon HD 7870 and 7850 Pitcairn GPUs Tested

Submitted by Vigile
Vigile (99919) writes "AMD continues to push forward with the new 28nm process GPUs and completes the 7000-series family with the Pitcairn-based Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition and HD 7850 cards. The HD 7870 has 1280 stream processors while the HD 7850 has 1024 SPs, both cards have 256-bit memory buses that run at 1200 MHz. As the name implies, the HD 7870 runs at 1000 MHz and is priced at $350 squaring up perfectly with the GTX 570 from NVIDIA and is able to outperform it while using 80 fewer watts of power. The HD 7850 will sell for $250 and simply blows past the GTX 560 Ti again using 50 fewer watts in the process. There are full reviews available at PC Perspective, Tech Report, HardOCP and HotHardware, but it looks like AMD might have a graphics card worth upgrading to."
