Looking at the card we've got that same reference look we've seen from AMD when it comes to most of the HD 7000 series cards we've seen. A bit like the HD 7950, though, we should see partners offer us versions that have their own cooling solution before much longer.
As we move around the card you can see on top we've got a single 6-pin PCIe power connector while closer to the front we have only a single CrossFire connector. Performance to power draw will be interesting as we see just a single power connector and we've got our fingers crossed it's good.
The I/O department doesn't really hold any shocks as we see the reference card opts for a Dual-Link DVI port, HDMI port and two mini DisplayPort connectors on the far left. Across the top we can also see the air vents which help the cooling system push the hot air straight out the back of the case instead of just pushing it around your case.
Getting into the main specifications of the new HD 7850 the big thing we can see is the 1024 Stream processors that are on the new 28nm GPU. Along with that we've got 64 texture units and 32 ROPs. On the clock side of things a reference clocked HD 7850 as you can see below will come in at 860MHz.
On the memory front we've got a solid 2GB of GDDR5 memory that sits on a 128-bit memory bus offering us a default clock of 4800MHz QDR. On the specification front the HD 7850 looks like a nice card and should compare well against the HD 7770. As always, though, there's only one way to find out exactly the kind of performance we're able to get.
