In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7850 VTX3D X-Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition.

The HD 7850 has a 25 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the HD 7850. This results in the HD 7850 providing 1.6 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 25 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7850 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the HD 7850 providing 0.8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition and the Radeon HD 7850 VTX3D X-Edition were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition and the Radeon HD 7850 VTX3D X-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 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7850, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7850 is marginally better than the HD 7850.

Both the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition and the Radeon HD 7850 VTX3D X-Edition have 1024 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the HD 7850 has 1.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate, 0.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, and 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth, so should have a marginally faster performance than the HD 7850.

We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7850 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7850. The two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition is a special edition of the powerful Radeon HD 7850. See the standard version for more information about it.
The differences include an increase on the core-clock that went from 860MHz to 975MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 7% boost when compared to the standard edition.
Radeon HD 7850 VTX3D X-Edition is a special edition of the powerful Radeon HD 7850. See the standard version for more information about it.
The differences include an increase on the core-clock that went from 860MHz to 1000MHz and on the memory clock, once 1200MHz and now 1225MHz. This edition also features a special cooling system that allows twice as much heat dissipation when compared to the reference AMD cooling system.
Benchmarks indicate a 8.5% boost when compared to the standard edition.
