How well can the Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Game performance for the Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. 105 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire shows us that Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order is getting a weak result of 0 FPS, and then we are seeing Microsoft Flight Simulator predicted to return a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which is getting 13 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire by researching Microsoft Flight Simulator leading us to predict a weak performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 10 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order which gets weak results with a 0FPS on Ultra 1440p. 1440p Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire PC gaming is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire in your PC? We think this Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 135% better and can meet 897 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 73% more powerful and can run 668 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 7850 Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon HD 7850 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 7850 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is up to 47% better than a single Radeon HD 7850 performing by itself it might be worse (depending on whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) than a single Radeon HD 7850. Expect this combination to draw up to 260 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.

allegedly the flagship Bristol Ridge APU will have the graphical equivalent of an HD 7850 (16 compute units), so this might be a good equivalent view of dual graphics with the 'A16-9XXX'

hence why I said allegedly, the only ways I can think of is either the motherboard would have soldered in GDDR5X RAM specifically for the iGPU or the APU could only get that much bandwidth with quad channel very high performance DDR4 ram (high frequency low latency)

7850 is rated poorly. A pair of 7850's in many occasions outperforms a 7970 and gtx680.
Also, 7850 CF DOES NOT have 4 gigs of VRAM. In multi GFX setups nothing gets doubled/tripled/quadrupled or whatsoever. There still are only two gigabytes of vram for this setup.

I still use these in Xfire I can still play all the games that are coming out at very high and lower settings.. Heck I was playing battlefront on almost everything maxed out and still got around 35-45fps.. Tough little cards for being 3 years old to my rig.

I guess my CPU will be a bottleneck if i decide to upgrade to this, but is it possible to overclock it even more or something to not let it become a bottleneck. If not, what is the best card on pair with this CPU?

I doubt 430w would be enough input your specs on this and see if its enough: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine
-Edit- Your PSU only has one 6+2 pin connector and no 6 pin connectors but it might be possible to use a adapter, also your CPU would bottleneck 7850 crossfire.

yeah you should get at least an i5-3470, 3570 or 3570k will go nicely, if you can, get the i7-3770 which would work wonders with 7850 XFIRE

This card is only 11% better than mine. I don't understand this. This card have 512bit bus and mine only 192, this have 307GB/sec bandwidth and mine 144 and etc. So why is only 11%?

Hey Buddy.
No, that's alright buddy. We decided to use these generic images instead because the real ones look really bad. Thanks for the offer!
