In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 240 v2 1GB.

The HD 7850 has a 245 MHz higher core clock speed and 44 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 240. This results in the HD 7850 providing 47.8 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 245 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the R7 240. This results in the HD 7850 providing 25.4 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 R7 240 was released over a year more recently than the HD 7850, and so the R7 240 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 7850.

The Radeon R7 240 v2 1GB and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC 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 81.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 240, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7850 is much better than the R7 240.

The Radeon R7 240 v2 1GB has 320 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 240 is 212 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7850 is 849. The HD 7850 having 637 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 R7 240.

The Radeon R7 240 v2 1GB requires 30 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 240 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 R7 240. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7850 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewNote: This Graphics Card has 2 variants: one with DDR3 and another with GDDR5. This is the GDDR5 Version.

Radeon R7 240 v2 1GB offers a core codenamed Oland PRO and and thus features 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit bus width of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 730MHz and goes up to 780MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1125MHz.
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires no extra power connectors.

Its performance is somewhat comparable to GDDR5 variant of Radeon HD 7730.
Radeon 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.
