HIS HD 4770 512MB PCI-E Graphics Card

Gaming Benchmarks continued

FC2
 
Ubisoft has developed a new engine specifically for Far Cry 2, called Dunia, meaning "world", "earth" or "living" in Parsi. The engine takes advantage of multi-core processors as well as multiple processors and supports DirectX 9 as well as DirectX 10. Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark tool the test was run 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being omitted and the average calculated from the remaining 3.
 
 
 
 
Grid
 
Race Driver: Grid is a visually taxing game that presents a challenge to any graphics system. Results were recorded using FRAPS to log the average FPS over a 2 minute race. To ensure consistency, the same track, car and general path of travel was used in each of the 5 benchmark runs for each graphics card, with an average FPS being calculated from the median three results.
 
 
 
 UT3
 
Unreal Tournament 3 the latest game in the long running Unreal series from Epic Games and Midway. The game uses the latest UE3, which combines fast gameplay along with high quality textures and lighting effects. All benchmarks were performed using UTbench with a fly-by of the DM-BioHazard map. As usual, all benchmarks were performed 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.
 
 
 
Results Analysis
 
In Far Cry 2 the 4770 and 9800GTX are neck and neck at 1600x1200. It's only at 1900x1200 that the 4770 pulls away and takes a substancial lead over its rival. As expected the 1GB GTS250 manages a comfortable lead over both cards. At 1900x1200 the 4770 shows us what it's made of and takes the top spot, beating both cards by a small margin. Unreal Tournament shows little favour to the 4770 as it trails behind constantly, but it isn't really a concern as the framerates all three cards produce are more than acceptable for gaming.

Will the world's first 40nm GPU have what it takes to be a contender or will it be a case of too much too soon?

Don't like barebone cards. Seem cheap. But this thing surely can compete against the 9600GT with pricing no?

Seems like a good card over all.

The 4830 easily performs above the 9600GT and the 4770 performs ahead of the 4830 and is comparable to the 4850 so it's great value for money

I have literally seen nothing but praise for this card. In Crossfire friendly games it's supposed to be as fast as a GTX280, which is astonishing really...

Well we need to see figures of crossfire 4770 vs crossfire 4850 first. But for now I wouldn't do anything.

Crossfire 4850s is gonna cost about 50 more and consume more power, for not alot more performance.

4770 in x-fire decimate a 4890,4870,4850-gtx 275, gtx 260 upto 1920x1200

For 150 not a bad double act.

BUT if you already have a 4850, I think it's better to CF it with another '50 because its second hand price is probably dropping like a stone now.
