Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC Edition 2GB Video Card Review

AMD’s 7000 series is made up of 3 segments.  Starting with the flagship 7900 which are the high-end cards.  Then we have the 7700 series which has budget gamers in mind.  Finally we have the 7800 series which sits right in the middle to hit the sweet spot between cost and performance.  The 7800 series has 2 cards the 7850 and the 7870, today we are taking a look at the 7850.  Not just any 7850 though, the 7850 Overclocked Edition from Sapphire.  This card really makes the sweet spot even sweeter with a factory overclock moving the core up to 920MHz and the memory up to 1250MHz.  Sapphire has also added their popular Dual-X cooler for better cooling performance.  Read on to see what this card is all about.
