AMD shows off new video cards
AMD has unveiled a pair of new video cards today that followed the HD 7800 series using 28nm technology GPU's. The two new cards include the Radeon HD 7870 GHz edition and AMD Radeon 7850 graphics card. Both the video cards are available globally at about $249. I would bet some of these cards will cost more than that depending on the bundle and the clock speeds.
Both the 7870 and 7850 use 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, and will be available from companies like XFX, Gigabyte, MSI, and many more. The card supports the typical features expected of moderate range video cards including 3-D and multiple GPU configurations. AMD is mum on the clock speeds for the 7850. Obviously, the 7870 has a core clock running at 1 GHz by default.
“AMD has launched its full suite of next-generation graphics cards in very short order,” said Robert E. Bellack, CEO, Newegg North America. “With the launch of the AMD Radeon HD 7800 series, we’ll now be able to offer our customers AMD’s full range of 28nm graphics cards, giving them the edge they need when gaming. We’re proud to work with AMD on getting these cards to market.”
