Introduction and Technical Specifications

AMD HD7770 Review


If you're a big fan of getting a lot of performance for a reasonable outlay, then the numbers 770 will get you all excited. After all the 4770 and 5770s were both cards with great levels of performance and yet came in at a very reasonable price-point.

Given that the top end cards in the 7 series are both more expensive than we're used to from AMD, and the rejig of their naming conventions with the 6 series, will the HD7770 live up to the lofty expectations of its predecessor?

Technical Specifications

One of the main points of the HD7770 is that it has all the AMD technologies built in to it. Rather than cutting down the featureset as well as the amount of Stream Processors and clockspeed, AMD have solely reduced the performance of the card, but left all the Eyefinity and rendering elements alone.

Really disappointing card. As you said in the conclusion no point in getting it over a 560 or 6870 for gaming purposes. The noise and power aspects are the only pluses about this card :/Quote

The prices at the moment are what are making these cards bad, they are good cards but they are priced a lot higher than they should be making them bad value for your money. Really they should replace the 6xxx series equivalent in price and position.

If you look at the 6 series launch prices, the 7xxx equivalent should come in at the same and replace the lower model, maybe priced £10 or £20 higher than last gen but not £100+ more like we are seeing now.

6770 - £100 this is where the 7770 should be at around £100 new - actual price is ~£130

6850 - £150 this is where the 7850 should be at around £150 new - actual price will be ~£250+ (rumored)

6870 - £170 this is where the 7870 should be at £170 new - actual price will be ~£280+ (rumored)

6950 - £250 this is where the 7950 should be at around £250 new - actual price is £350+

6970 - £300 this is where the 7970 should be at around £350 new - actual price is £450+

If it wasn't for these cards being priced as high as they are, they would be much better because price to performance would be good, but at the moment it's not. I just hope when Nvidia launches Kepler the prices even out, for now i'll stick with my 6850.Quote
