stupid rebadging. amd shouldn't have phased out radeon hd 7850 2GB in the first place. still, we get two hugely powerful gfx cards (r7 265 and r9 270) only needing single 6 pin pcie power connector.

The HD 7850 needs 2 6 pin connectors but that gives it a higher headroom for overclocking (I think). while the R7 265 has lower power consumption and slightly better performance than HD 7850 when they are both at stock.

Edit: Scratch that the HD 7850 consumes slightly less power. It is basically an overclocked HD 7850.
 

both gfx cards can run on lower wattage psus but deliver a lot of performance without needing much power.

radeon hd 7850 had single 6 pin pcie connector. radeon hd 7870 had 2x 6 pin power connectors.

Getting anything with AMD products now days isn't a good deal. Take Raptr the AMD Gaming Evolved APP for AMD graphics owners.They've gone and erased all the points for all the users and given them lower value points.Using Raptr the desktop app users could earn points to get Graphics cards and Games. We are now finding our accounts and points being changed to significantly lower points. Why because AMD and Raptr does want users to get their rewards in the form of games, which many users were close to getting. They basically stole users points.
