1 The GCN Architecture and its associated features (PCI Express® 3.0, AMD ZeroCore Power technology, DDM Audio, and 28nm production) are exclusive to the AMD Radeon™ HD 7900, HD 7800 and HD 7700 Series.
2 AMD Eyefinity technology works with games that support non-standard aspect ratios, which is required for panning across multiple displays. To enable more than two displays, additional panels with native DisplayPort™ connectors, and/or DisplayPort™ compliant active adapters toconvert your monitor’s native input to your cards DisplayPort™ or Mini-DisplayPort™ connector(s), are required. Support for six simultaneous displays may require complementary products compatible with DisplayPort 1.2 Multi-Stream Transport. Maximum number of configured displays may vary - check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities and supported technologies. SLS (?Single Large Surface?) functionality requires an identical display resolution on all configured displays.
3 AMD App Acceleration is a set of technologies designed to improve video quality and enhance application performance. Full enablement of some features requires support for OpenCL™, DirectCompute or DirectX® Video Acceleration (DXVA). Not all products have all features and full enablement of some capabilities and may require complementary products.
4 AMD PowerPlay™, AMD PowerTune and AMD ZeroCore Power are technologies offered by certain AMD Radeon™ products, which are designed to intelligently manage GPU power consumption in response to certain GPU load conditions. Not all products feature all technologies – check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities.
5 AMD HD3D is a technology designed to enable stereoscopic 3D support in games, movies and/or photos. Requires 3D stereo drivers, glasses, and display. Not all features may be supported on all components or systems – check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities and supported technologies. A list of supported stereoscopic 3D hardware is available at http://www.amd.com/HD3D.
6 AMD CrossFire™ technology requires an AMD CrossFire Ready motherboard, an AMD CrossFire™ Bridge Interconnect (for each additional graphics card) and may require a specialized power supply.
7 Utilization of PCI Express 3.0 bandwidth requires a mainboard equipped with a PCI Express 3.0 PHY. Not all mainboards feature this technology – check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities.

Price (Got the Extreme Deal of the Day)
Plays most games on high setting
None that I can think of
Very Good GPU! Purchased it when it was featured on the Extreme Deal of the Day, and I can say that I was very happy with it. I can run most games on high setting. (Guild Wars 2 on high is SO PRETTY!) The design of the card is pretty slick as well.
Experience: 5 Days
2 GB Gddr5
good card for 149.99$ working really good very easy to overcloking
Experience: 24 Days
PCI Express 3.0, 2GB VRAM and easy to over clock
I bought this card on 04/09/12 for $229.99 as NCIX's deal of the day. I haven't had a problem running any game on max settings so far except for BLOPS which is a known horribly optimized PC game. I over clocked it right away on Catalyst Control Center to 1050MHz and the memory to 1450MHz and just left it there. No Artifacts or screen tearing. I'm planing on crossfiring this card in the future. I would pay full price if needed in the future for another card because of the performance and 2GB of VRAM.
Experience: 9 Days
Good price, 2GB, playing all my games on high settings, the card looks cool too.
none for now.
Just changed my 10yrs old computer with one containing this video card. For now, I am really impressed by the performance. Can run all my games on high settings, bought it while it was the special deal of the day. Extra-fast
I would buy again for sure. Can't compare with other cards of the same price range, but this Radeon HD 7850 is all I need for now. :)
Experience: 10 Days
Cheapest HD7850 around.
Cheapest HD7850 around.
Hi i bought this card after getting a great deal from ncix via a price match. Unfortunately after a few days i was getting random crashes in league of legends, hard crashes, everything locked up and had to do a hard reboot. It didnt just crash in games but also when left on for long periods of time at the desktop it would crash and i wouldnt be able to wake up the computer.
Powercolor is the only manufacturer to use the reference design from AMD. And i think it shows. Ill still be getting a 7850, probably saphire or MSI. Thanks ncix for refundiing me.
