Overview of the Sapphire HD 7770




Today I received my Sapphire HD 7770 graphics card and after playing a few games and benchmarks this card is quite powerful and extremely efficient! Under maximum load this card only hit 45 Celsius and at idle it runs at 29C. As I mentioned this card features AMD's new GCN architecture which has greatly improved tessellation performance as well as very good performance/watt ratio. I will post benchmark results in a few days as the current drivers aren't completely stable.

  1. Oh man, last time I bought a graphics card was 2007. HD7700? Mine was a 8800GT. I've never understood their naming.

    1. Yea it does get a bit confusing for nvidia its 8000 series 9000 series 200 series 400 series 500 series and now 600 series. For amd its a bit simpler 1000 series all the way through the new 7000 series

  4. Nice buy, I'll wait for the results. Also, idle and max load temps are very nice!

  5. I'll be looking forward to those stats
    I was extremely tempted to grab a 6k card but it was barely above what I already had so I imagine 7k might be my tipping point, then again I might just save up and build a whole new comp when the 9k's start rolling in
