Club3D's HD 7850 RoyalQueen comes with a modest 1 GB of memory, which is half that of a typical HD 7850. Nevertheless we got some interesting results in our testing. The card is just as fast as the 2 GB HD 7850, at full HD resolutions and below. Coming at a more than reasonable $195, the card is also one of the most affordable choices on the market.

Well, for 195$ you can't really ask for more these days. Defo beating the competitor GTX560Ti for the 200$ price point.
Now if we all just wait 3 weeks or so...

nice price and good performance that really gives a kick plus it shows what 1gb video memory really still can do even in 1920x1200 ^^

UN-FRICKEN-REAL! This card hangs with it's 2GB brother in all games at 2560x1600 except battle field. I am rather surprised AMD didn't release this themselves like they did with the 1GB 6950. At stock speeds it runs with the GTX 560ti for a bit less money. It overclocks like a banshee and rubs elbows with a GTX 580 when it does. All for $195. AMAZING!
It makes me wonder if one of these board manufactures will release a 1.5GB or 2GB 7950. Only problem there is they will be shooting themselves in the foot since it will be faster than an HD 7870 for the same amount. Unless you plan on xfire or SLI running cinema 4k, 3GB memory is an overkill it seems.

So. Cal.
Ok this is an excellent offering and really is the 1920x mainstream darling. I mean to be at 6970/GTX580 territory and under $200 what's not to love!

And, North American AIB’s like Sapphire and PowerColor should be engineering this configuration into our markets… quick. I’d like to see them stick with Samsung or Hynix, give it a similarly nice HP cooler, while skip any OC’n if they believe they should charge for it (I'll do it myself). I’m sure AIB’s could sell a ton, the market is ripe as who knows when and if Nvidia can give folk this level from a GK106 GTX650.

I don't know where you're getting your pricing from, but I can't find this card for much less than 220 pounds in the UK or 245 Euros in Europe and those prices are a long way from $195 US. They are closer to $340 US and for that price there are faster cards available.

People really have to stop compare US prices to europe prices, and especially UK prices (taxes mostly, and things are more expensive in Europe). The cheapest 7850 RQ are about 1800SEK (225€)

Anyway I really like the Royalqueen cards. Good value. I kinda wish they had a 7770 though.
