AMD has affirmed its position in the mid-range graphics market with the successful Radeon HD 77xx and 78xx GPUs. With so many individual graphics cards to choose from, how do you decide which is best? Cooler, factory overclock, VRAM and display outputs are all valid reasons for picking one card over another.
Which mid-range AMD graphics card do you buy? Is 2GB of VRAM worth the extra cost, in comparison to 1GB models? How do current generation models compare to previous generation cards? We aim to answer these questions by pushing a 1GB and 2GB 7850, a 7770 GHz Edition, and a competitively priced option from AMD’s HD 6000 series – the 6870 – through our barrage of tests.
So which of these mid-range AMD cards is worthy of our recommendation? Read on to find out.
