TechSpot: AMD Radeon HD 7790 Review

As well-thought-out as the Radeon HD 7000 series was, we kind of hoped 2012 would mark the beginning and the end for the series, much as 2011 did for the previous generation. Expecting something entirely new was not to be, as we are now three months into 2013 and we find ourselves reviewing a brand new AMD graphics card that isn’t based on a new architecture.

Rather what we have is the latest member of the Southern Islands family, designed to fill the gap between the Radeon HD 7770 and 7850.

Not the most exciting product to be released, and its performance will be a far cry from what we saw with the GeForce GTX Titan last month. That said, the new Radeon HD 7790 is likely going to be of more interest than the GTX Titan to many of you for the simple reason that it is affordable and should be pretty good value as well.

Really looking forward to 8870 and 8850. Going to build my first PC around June or July and I want to know if they blow 7870 out of the water at around the same price.

And, Intel Haswell!

They are just refreshes, not true successors, the 8850 will be 7870 performance and 8870 will between 7950 and 7970. Next gen stuff isn't coming till next year.

Yeah, as Mart said AMD's next generation of cards for desktop won't be coming until Q4 at the earliest, maybe even February next year. nVidia's cards will be out at around the same time too.
