AMD Readies Radeon R7 265

In a bid to ward off the GeForce GTX 750 threat, AMD is working on a new Radeon R7 series GPU, the R7 265. The SKU, interestingly, isn't based on the "Bonaire" silicon as the R7 260X, and is instead based on a cut down "Curacao" silicon, the same chip on which the R9 270 and R9 270X are based. While the R9 270 series chips share a common core configuration with 1,280 stream processors each, the R7 265 will feature one that's similar to that of the Radeon HD 7850 from the previous generation, which means 1,024 stream processors, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. Its core clock speed is expected to be around 900 MHz, and memory at 4.80 GHz (GDDR5-effective), which works out to a memory bandwidth of 153.6 GB/s. AMD could target the US $149 to $159 price range with the Radeon R7 265.

VTX3D Announces V-Champ Series Graphics Cards

A renowned brand of graphics card maker - VTX3D, today launches a whole new series, the HD7850/7790 V Champ. The HD7850/7790 V Champ using VTX3D exclusive V Champ cooler, which utilizing the latest Vapor Chamber technology, offering 20% better cooling performance than regular. Both models featuring GCN graphics processing architecture, use PCI Express 3.0 and also with latest Direct DirectX 11.1 support, ensuring unrivaled performance for all gamers.

The HD7850 V Champ runs at factory-overclock of 1000MHz, while HD7790 V Champ has been boosted to 1075MHz, providing gamers an immediate framerate gain. Except for using highly effective V Champ cooler design, both HD7850/7790 packing with dual 8mm fans, can generate double greater airflow single fan, and easily dissipates extra heats. Also, they're built with 2 units U-shape heat pipes with massive heat sink, which efficiently spread the heat from GPU.

Triplex Shows Off Slot-powered Radeon HD 7850

Graphics card maker Triplex, which is more prevalent in the Greater China region, unveiled a new single-slot Radeon HD 7850 2GB graphics card that relies on the PCI-Express slot entirely, for power. It lacks any kind of power input. The card is based on an alternate (more expensive to implement) reference design by AMD, which has been sporadically implemented by other AMD partners. An example is this card by AFOX. Unlike AFOX' card, Triplex' lacks power connectors. The card comes with reference clock speeds of 860 MHz core, and 4.80 GHz memory. It packs 1024 stream processors, 64 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory. Sadly, even for buyers in this part of the world, Triplex' card will be sold only in the OEM channel.

HIS Announces Radeon HD 7850 IceQ X² Turbo 2 GB Graphics Card

With GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost stepping up the heat, AMD partners are beginning to roll out newer Radeon HD 7850 graphics cards. HIS announced a pair of Radeon HD 7850 2GB graphics cards, featuring custom PCB and cooler designs, named HD 7850 IceQ X² and HD 7850 IceQ X² Turbo. The HD IceQ X² features AMD reference clock speeds of 860 MHz core, and 4.80 GHz memory; while the HD IceQ X² Turbo features a factory-overclocked GPU, running at 1000 MHz. Both cards feature 2 GB of memory

Both cards feature a compacted IceQ X² dual-fan cooler by HIS. The cooler uses a copper heat-pipe fed aluminum fin stack, which is ventilated by a pair of 75 mm fans. HIS claims the cooler runs at 28 dB when idling, and keeps the GPU cooler than AMD's reference design cooler. The PCB features an 8-phase VRM, which the company claims, can supply 66 percent more current than AMD's reference design PCB VRM. Pricing varies by region, but we expect the cards to be competitively priced around the GTX 650 Ti.

ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti Dragon Graphics Card Pictured

ASUS readied its second "Dragon" branded performance graphics card, the first being last year's Radeon HD 7850 Dragon. These cards are typically a notch above DirectCU II OC models, in featuring a backplate, and slightly improved VRM.

The company's new GeForce GTX 660 Ti Dragon, pictured below, features out of the box clock speeds of up to 1150 MHz core, and 6.10 GHz memory. It features 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. The card's cooling assembly is nearly identical to the company's DirectCU II, with the exception of blue accents, and a back-plate. From the looks of it, the card could feature a GPU electrical noise filter, similar in function to MSI GPU Reactor module. ASUS tells us that the card is specific to the Greater China region, it's unlikely to make it to western markets.

ASUS Readies HD 7850 DirectCu II Dragon Edition Graphics Card

ASUS is reportedly working on a new custom-design Radeon HD 7850 graphics card, to capture a key price-point in the performance market segment. The card uses the company's in-house DirectCu II dual-slot cooling solution, and is labeled "Dragon Edition" (model: DRAGON HD7850-DC2O-2GD5). The card ships with clock speeds lower than those of the HD 7850 DirectCu II TOP, with 910 MHz GPU and 5.00 GHz memory (vs. reference clock speeds of 870/4.84 GHz; and DCU2 TOP clock speeds of 975/5.00 GHz).

Interestingly, the HD 7850 DirectCu II Dragon Edition features a metal back-plate, something even the TOP model lacks. The PCB, too, differs from the that is found in other HD 7850 DCU2 graphics cards, featuring a 6+3 phase Digi+ VRM, which draws power from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors. The main heatsink bears a slightly different design to that of the other DCU2 models based on the GPU. ASUS is likely to price the card somewhere between the stock HD 7850 DirectCu II and the HD 7850 DirectCu II TOP.

Production Radeon HD 7850 Packs 768 Stream Processors

Tom's Hardware Germany found it difficult to explain lower than normal performance of an AFOX-branded Radeon HD 7850 graphics card. Upon looking at its stream processor count in GPU-Z, it was amazed to notice a value of 768, 25% lower than HD 7850 normal count of 1024. Attempts to replace its BIOS did not change the stream processor count, leading them to believe the stream processors were physically disabled. AMD was of little help, and they were redirected to talk to AFOX, which told them that since March, AMD has been shipping Pitcairn chips with 768 stream processor configuration to some OEMs. Could this be a new SKU under works? HD 7790? HD 7830?
