XFX Radeon HD 7850 Black Edition Graphics Card Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Tweak Town have reviewed the mid-range XFXHD 7850 Black Edition video card, which features a custom cooler and overclocked specifications.
Let's see what they had to say:
"We've always been happy with the Black Edition series from XFX and combining our love for the series with our love for the AMD Radeon HD 7850, a model that comes in at an excellent price point and offers great performance, we end up with a model that looks really strong.
Outside of the cooler, though, one of the main standout features for the video card is the strong overclock that XFX is offering us out of the box. Going through our benchmarks we could see at times the overclock was enough to push us from unplayable to playable numbers.
If you're looking for a video card under the $300 mark, the AMD Radeon HD 7850 is a really good option and if you're looking for something that moves away from the reference cooler and clocks well, the Black Edition version we've got here from XFX is a really good option you should consider."
With its custom "Double D' heatsink and factory overclocking, the XFX 7850 Black Edition is another fine addition to AMDs mid-range lineup. Looking for something a little bit faster from AMD? Check out this roundup of factory overclocked Radeon HD 7870 graphics cards.
