Radeon 7850 And 7870 Specs Leaked [Rumor]

The month of March is just over a week away, which means that if previous rumors are to be believed, we should be expecting the next batch of Radeon cards soon. Specifically, the 7800 series. And today we have a little more insight than was previously given, including pricing.

Last we heard, the 7850 and 7870 were expected to fall into the $179-$249 price range. Now it’s looking like that those were considerably high estimates. New rumor has it that we will see the 7850 debuting at $139 for the 1GB version, and $169 for the 2GB. As for the 7870 2GB, it has been confirmed that it will hit the $199 price point. Prices aren’t the only thing we have learned, though. VR-Zone has been able to get their hands on the full specs for all three cards. Check them out below:

AMD Radeon HD 7850 1GB

  • $139 (Rumored)
  • 20 Compute Units
  • 1280 cores (Stream Processors)
  • 80 Texture Units; 72.0 GTexel/s
  • 24 Color ROP Units; 21.6 GPixel/s
  • 1 GB GDDR5 Memory; 156.25 GB/s
  • 900 MHz GPU Core
  • 1250 MHz QDR GDDR5 clock (5.0 GHz “effective”)

AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB

  • $169 (Rumored)
  • 20 Compute Units
  • 1280 cores (Stream Processors)
  • 80 Texture Units; 72.0 GTexel/s
  • 24 Color ROP Units; 21.6 GPixel/s
  • 2 GB GDDR5 Memory; 156.25 GB/s
  • 900 MHz GPU Core
  • 1250 MHz QDR GDDR5 clock (5.0 GHz “effective”)

AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB

  • $199 (Verified)
  • 22 Compute Units
  • 1408 cores (Stream Processors)
  • 88 Texture Units; 83.6 GTexel/s
  • 24 Color ROP Units; 22.8 GPixel/s
  • 2GB GDDR5 Memory; 171.88GB/s
  • 950MHz GPU Core
  • 1375 MHz QDR GDDR5 clock (5.5GHz “effective”)

While it’s easy to get excited about these, I imagine that after the lukewarm reception to the 77xx cards, most people will be waiting to see the real-world reviews of these cards before buying. If these cards really can replace the 69xx series at the price points listed, while consuming less power, this might be just what AMD fans have been looking for.
