The Radeon 7870 sits in the middle of AMD’s product lineup, at the “performance” echelon. It’s far more affordable than the potent flagship 7970, yet packs far more than the gaming-anemic 7750. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a graphics card from Diamond, but today we’re looking at the company’s 7870 GHz Edition, a model that sports a smaller PCB design and a custom cooler, as well as some flashy red styling. Retailing for about $239 ($219 after rebate), this card is quite affordable, and while we don’t expect it to be a gaming powerhouse, it could prove very enticing to gamers on a more modest budget. Let’s take a closer look at the Diamond 7870 GHz Edition and see how it fares.
