Good Evening Peeps
After a wait of 4 days, my new Asus Radeon HD 7850 has arrived. Purchased from Overclockers.co.uk for £149.99 came bundled with Far Cry 3, Nexuiz & Sleeping Dogs and due to a halloween promotion, free delivery. Not bad at all.
Opened the big boring brown cardboard box and was surprised to find 2 small packets of haribo tangfastic. Nom Nom
Also there was this
inside that box was this box
Opening that box i came apon another box ( there is a trend here )
This contained installation booklet, driver disk, crossfire cable and a D-Sub to Dvi Adaptor. Tossing those to one side i delved in further and found
Tearing open the bag and i feasted my eyes on what i paid for
It measures 11inch x 4inch x 1.5inch or 279mm x 102mm x 38mm. A Long card so you will need a big case for it. The cooler hangs 60mm over the end of the card.
This being the V2 version of the card, the 1 x 6pin power supply is placed in a more convenient position, making installation easier and no cut fingers to be had here.
Here are the specs of the car
- Core Clock: 860MHz
- Memory: 2048MB GDDR5
- Memory Clock: 4800MHz (Effective)
- Memory Interface: 256-Bit
- Processing Cores: 1024
- Bus Type: PCI-Express 3.0
- Display Connectors: 1x Dual Link DVI, 1x Single Link DVI, 1x HDMI & 1x DisplayPort
- HDCP Capable
- DirectX 11.1 Support
- OpenGL 4.2 Support
My trusty case before the install. You will notice the small ATI x600 graphics card that i was using to replace my crappy XFX HD 6850 that was under RMA.
After installing the ASUS which just fitted. I had to move my DVD drive up a slot. Looks nice in there.
Took about 15mins so not to bad.
