The AMD HD7870 is an interesting proposition for AMD to make in an already bulging graphics card market. Throughout the majority of the benchmarks we have run today, it soundly beat the reference NVIDIA GTX570 which translates to HD6970 performance,...

AMD’s Pitcairn GPU is in fact a rather pleasant surprise. Of the three GPUs in the Radeon HD 7000 family, it is by some distance the most efficient for its size and energy consumed. While it has fewer execution units than Cayman (used in the...

Final Words & Conclusion Not bad huh ? The entire 7000 series show respectable tweak and overclock performance. There's not a card out there that can't do another 10% extra on the GPU baseclock really. If you are luck and know how to do so, a...

At $349, the Radeon HD 7870 is pricey. But overall, it manages impressive performance, outpacing Nvidia's similarly priced GeForce GTX 570 on most tests, even besting the step-up GTX 580 on a few. It's a safe choice for those who need this level...

There is a whole lot to like about the HD 7870 2GB. Phenomenally low power consumption for a high-end card, low temperatures, and a reasonable if not colossal in speed over the previous generation’s HD 6970 2GB make it very attractive. Needless to...

The AMD HD 7870 is one hell of a card given that encroaches on the sub $400 territory of the HD 7950 and GTX 580 with relatively modest overclocking. It remained cool and fairly quiet throughout our testing compared to the other cards. The best part...

Power Consumption Predictably due to the 28nm process shrink, AMD has brought their power consumption and efficiencies to new heights. Interestingly, the HD 7870 has the same power draw as the HD 7950, which the latter has more compute units and...

There's a big hole in between AMD's £350 Radeon HD 7950 and its £120 Radeon HD 7700. Today, the company introduces Radeon HD 7850 and 7870 to fill that gap, and they push a lot more performance than we expected. But are they really ready for...
