In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 5670 Diamond 1GB GDDR5.

The HD 7850 has a 85 MHz higher core clock speed and 44 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 5670. This results in the HD 7850 providing 39.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD 7850 has a 85 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the HD 5670. This results in the HD 7850 providing 21.3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 7850 was released over a year more recently than the HD 5670, and so the HD 7850 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 5670.

The Radeon HD 5670 Diamond 1GB GDDR5 and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 7850 has 96 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 5670, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7850 is massively better than the HD 5670.

The Radeon HD 5670 Diamond 1GB GDDR5 has 400 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the HD 5670 is 155 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7850 is 749. The HD 7850 having 594 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7850 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 5670.

The HD 7850 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 5670. This means that the HD 7850 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 5670.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5670 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7850. The HD 7850 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the HD 5670. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7850 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 5670.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 5670 Diamond 1GB GDDR5 is a special edition of the middle-class Radeon HD 5670 that features a custom cooling system and no other change meaning its performance is on level with the reference AMD Radeon HD 5670 1GB but operates at lower temperatures.Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition is a special edition of the powerful Radeon HD 7850. See the standard version for more information about it.
This edition features a special cooling system that allows twice as much heat dissipation when compared to the reference AMD cooling system but its performance is still the same, as there's no over-clocking out of the box.
