AMD ’s xx50 cards have always been defined by budget prices with performance that knocks on the door of entry-level graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the GCN 1.0 graphics card inside the HD 7850, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The HD 7850 is much more expensive than the HD 7750 as it costs a whopping $ 249. Compare this to the HD 7750, which came originally at a price of $ 109. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA closest equivalent card is the GTX 650 Ti Boost which costs $ 169.

Spec for spec, this HD 7850 leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the HD 7750, by boasting 2 % more fps. The HD 7850 has 2 GB RAM compared to the HD 7750 's 1 GB video memory.

Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The HD 7850 consistently delivers great frame rate increases over the HD 7750 and it really justifies an upgrade.
