XFX Radeon HD 7850 1GB Core Edition Video Card Review

If you want to spend under $200 on a discrete graphics card you have a large number of choices, but one card that recently managed to catch our attention is the AMD Radeon HD 7850. The AMD Radeon HD 7850 came out on March 4, 2012 and cost $249.99 when we originally reviewed the reference card. This video card is now seven months old and the price for an entry level AMD Radeon HD 7850 card has fallen below $180! The XFX Radeon HD 7850 1GB Core Edition is one of those cards and what we are looking at today!

When it comes to gaming performance the XFX Radeon HD 7850 1GB Core Edition did better than expected with a screen resolution of 1920x1080! We were able to easily play all the current game titles at 1080p with the image quality settings cranked up! There were a few game titles like Skyrim where we felt a minor hiccup here or there when the frame buffer would fill up, but they were few and far apart. If you are looking to save a few bucks and don't plan on playing beyond 1920x1080 then the XFX R7850 1GB Core Edition should be something to consider...

Look's like a nice little card, the price doesn't hurt either.
