AMD has launched two new video cards today in the HD 7800 series namely Radeon HD 7870 GHz edition and the Radeon HD 7850. Both the video cards support PCI Express 3.0 along with AMD ZeroCore Power technology as well as 2 GB of GDDR5 memory. Both GPU’s are based on 28nm designs and support crossfire technology that allows gamers to achieve that extra performance. One more important feature supported by them is QuadFire which allows four video cards to work together for ultimate performance.
Both of these video cards will be offered globally from major AMD board partners including Asus, Diamond, Gigabyte, MSI, XFX starting with the price rate of $249.
All HD 7870s Video cards support a max resolution of 2560x1600 which can be expanded on up to three monitors, and with a multi-stream hub using the mini-DisplayPort 1.2 sockets, the card can even power up to six screens which is a big breakthrough.
Corporate Vice President and GM of GPU Division at AMD, Matt Skynner was very elated to launch the video cards and said, “These video cards are designed for supremacy and efficiency and packed with incredible features. They offer the incredible performance every gamer deserves”.
AMD has been a leader in the desktop graphics industry and has done a lot of innovations and unequalled technologies like the game-changing GCN Architecture.
AMD has seen some ups and downs in the past and is now starting to take shape. It had surprised everyone with the performance of Radeon HD 7900 series, but then saw a steep low by the high pricing of the HD 7700 series. Now with the 7800 series, they have found the momentum they needed.
