7850 (my model is MSY Power Edition OC 2GB) is e best GPU ever for overclock. This reference card comes with a 860mhz (my comes with 950 mhz) but in general overclocks to almost 1200. Im my case and becouse my card have triple overvoltage, i manege to aquieve 1290 Mhz with 1.265v and 1475 on the memory chips. That's a 50% overclock, a 430 mhz boost + 275 mhz on memory. Not even the king GTX 980 Ti do better! In comparsion, the performance boosts between 25 and 40% in the best cases, outperforming the R9 270X and in most cases the GTX760 and almost matching 7950/ R9 280 performance which is 2 levels above. In this Bench i put the clock at the max official OC 1050/1450 and results in a little higher than newer R7 370 (1000/1400).

it used to be an amazing budget entry-level option , but nowadays , the integrated graphics of more modern cpus are just better and cheaper than getting a entry-level gpu.

I respect this video card for introducing me to games in 2013. Thanks for the laggy watchdogs. But also thanks for all the games that I played until 2016 with more or less comfort. rest in peace

This is a gpu, which in 2020, holds up and is overclockable to the point where it’s an hd 7870 or even up to r9 270/x and beyond territory.

這張顯示卡,已經可以搞定大部分的遊戲了Dota2、LOL那類的遊戲,60FPS是沒問題的。 他的效能大約同等於GTX 650,我這樣說應該就比較好判斷了吧! 雖然這張卡已經不生產了。

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
