Budget friendly AMD 7870 graphics cards to be released in February / March


The 7870 will be the mid end budget graphics card for the 7000 series lineup. Typically the X870 cards play almost all games at maximum or near maximum settings at 1080p. The projected price of this card is supposed to be around $220. The projected specs are 2gb of GDDR5, 1536 stream processors, and a 950MHz core clock. This will be a great card for workstation users and gamers alike.

  9. Nice, looks like a pretty good new graphics card. If it was around $180-200 I'd pick it up in an instant! Hopefully I can wait it out for a rebate or sale.

  10. Great!! I've been looking for a new AMD card I have the HD4500 and it was pretty good when I bought my pc, But that was two or more years ago and now with some intensive games out I could do with an upgrade. Thanks for the info!
