AMD Radeon HD 7850: specs and benchmarks
AMD started Radeon HD 7850 sales 5 March 2012 at a recommended price of $249. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.2 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 153.6 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 210 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 225 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 14.74 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090.
