In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 370 Crossfire are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition.

The HD 7850 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the R7 370, but the R7 370 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 7850. As a result, the R7 370 exhibits a 56 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD 7850. 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 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the R7 370, but the R7 370 has 32 more Render Output Units than the HD 7850. As a result, the R7 370 exhibits a 28 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD 7850. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 370 was released over three years more recently than the HD 7850, and so the R7 370 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 7850 when running the latest games.

The R7 370 has 3072 MB more video memory than the HD 7850, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R7 370 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R7 370 has 204.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7850, which means that the memory performance of the R7 370 is massively better than the HD 7850.

The Radeon R7 370 Crossfire has 2048 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Ultra OC Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 370 is 1697 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7850 is 849. The R7 370 having 848 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 370 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 7850.

The Radeon R7 370 Crossfire requires 225 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 600 Watts for the R7 370 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7850. The R7 370 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the HD 7850. The difference is significant enough that the R7 370 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 7850.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 370 Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon R7 370 put together using AMD's Crossfire Technology.

The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed GCN 1.0 Trinidad PRO which, together, offer 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at 925MHz and goes up to 975MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Each GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1400MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption lies between 200W and 250W.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 370 Crossfire is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Decent a Strong Processor (Intel Core i5/AMD FX SIX Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R7 370 Crossfire.
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.
