Club 3D HD7850 Royal Queen Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

Club 3D HD7850 Royal Queen Review  


One of the biggest pushes being made by the two big corporations, AMD and Intel, is the inclusion of Integrated Graphics Processing Units on their CPUs. We've looked at both available options in the past and found them to be okay, if not a replacement for a dedicated GPU.

nVidia have gone the expensive route, with even the GTX660Ti being £200. The cheapest AMD offering we've looked at so far was the HD7770 which struggled to be better than an integrated solution. Of course there are many people who want to do more than Peggle or Farmville, but still haven't got a lot of money to spend.

So if you're after a graphics card capable of playing some decent titles as well as the casual games, yet doesn't break the bank in either cost or power draw terms, is the Club 3D HD7850 Royal Queen the card for you?

Technical Specifications

There are three models to the Club 3D Poker Series, Queen, King and Ace. They are all identical except for the clock speed which ranges from 860MHz on the Queen to 1000MHz on the Ace. Although the Ace also has two fans to help keep things cool. But we're dealing with the Royal Queen today, the base model that comes as part of the Poker Series.

Everything sounds great, but I cannot find the card for the stated price. The cheapest I can find it within UK is around £140 and this is for the 1GB version. I know it would be advertising if you mention the retailer but I do not think £130 is real. Yet.Quote

The card was a 1GB, as stated on the box. The specifications are copied from the Club 3D website and I hadn't noticed they'd got it wrong.

So yes, this is the 1GB variant.Quote
