XFX Core Edition FX-785A-CNL4 Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This card surprised me many times. Whether it was being able to run Trine 2 at super high resolutions with SSAA, or how high I was able to push the settings in Battlefield 4, I was always impressed by what it could do.

Supports analog RGBHV.

Supports the Mantle API, which helps a lot in mid-tier systems. You can get very good FPS with it if you watch your VRAM use.

Cons: AMD's support of the Mantle API has been lackluster. It's been out for months, but with the 7000 series, you have to be very careful about how much VRAM you're using or you will get unplayable stuttering. They say they're still in the process of optimizing, but I feel like they've had enough time.

Other Thoughts: I bought the card way before Mantle was announced, so I'm not holding that against the card. I see it as more of a bonus. However, low-level API's will be standard in the future, and I hope AMD gets in gear with this thing.
