New Radeon HD 7850 Graphics Card Released by Gigabyte

We half-expected Gigabyte to announce some sort of graphics card + free game bundle, but the company chose to stick to the basics this time. A new video board has appeared, bearing the part number GV-R785WF2-1GD.

The actual name is Radeon HD 7850 1 GB WindForce 2X.

The GPU works at 860 MHz, the 1 GB of GDDR5 VRAM operates at 4,800 MHz, and the memory interface is 256-bit wide.

Moving on, stability and long life are granted by the Ultra Durable 2 components: Ferrite Choke, all-solid capaictors, Low RDS (on) MOSFET.

The cooler helps as well, with its two fans and two copper heatpipes.

Gigabyte hasn't given a price or availability date, unfortunately. At least that gives prospective buyers some time to scout for monitors with DVI, HDMI or mini DisplayPort inputs.
