XFX R7850 Black Edition OC

titleYesterday we took a look at the XFX R7870 Black Edition OC and really liked it. It seemed to fall into a nice sweet spot between price and performance. Today we are going to take a look at what looks to be the same card but bring the R7850 not the R7870, there are a few key differences. There are major differences in both power usage and compute performance between the two cards. I am really curious how this will translate to the performance and ultimately the price/performance that make the R7870 an idea card to pick up.  Will the R7850 be an even better deal or a card to pass on?

No one wants to send out the reference designs because all of the company's sell them. XFX always sends out their best version to us.


But yeah, its funny when you look at the graphs with all of the Black Editions
