AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB Reference Video Card Review - Sound Test

We check out the brand new HD 7850 and see what the HD 7800 series is all about. Fingers crossed it's more HD 7900 than the HD 7700

Sound Test

 

 

Pulling out the TES 1350A Sound Level Meter we find ourselves quickly yelling into the top of it to see how loud we can be.

 

After five minutes of that we get a bit more serious and place the device two CM away from the fan on the card to find the maximum noise level of the card when idle (2D mode) and in load (3D mode).

On the noise front the reference cooler again does a good job as it sits towards the bottom of the pack.
