AMD Radeon HD 7770 and 7750 GPU ReviewsAMD is launching two more Radeon HD 7000 series products today, the Radeon HD 7770 and 7750, but unlike the 7970 and 7950, these two new cards are based on a fresh GPU codenamed “Cape Verde”. Cape Verde has essentially the same feature set as the more powerful Tahiti, but is pared down to target a totally different market segment, and be more affordable and power friendly too...

I think that these cards will do well. The x770 cards in particular have been well received in the past and I see no reason for that to change.

I got a Diamond HD 5770 1GB(my first GPU and still is) When i bought this baby i was just amazed with its performance and price one year ago. I've never had a problem with it since then.

The Radeon HD 7750 looks ugly!

The Radeon HD 7770 looks great + its performance and power consumption just make it a ideal graphics card---I think I'm getting this one soon.

The performance is not a surprise, I expected that from AMD YAYYYYYYYYYYY

You can't be the prices for what is currently available at that power level. What is sad is to see a new gen product go head to head with a previous gen tech from team green. I expect more from AMD.

I'm with Omega.

This, in my opinion, was not a good launch. Right now a 6850/6870 or a GTX 560 are the much better deals in this price bracket (look for the rebates).

I figure that eventually AMD will soon EOL the 68xx series, and then the prices of these cards will drop: I think they did something similar when they launched the 6xxx, because the 5xxx series were still around and were giving much better performance for the same price. Then they will be convincing, esp for those gaming at below 1080p resolutions.

Agreed, A lot of sites are saying that the 77x0 cards are 90% of the performance of a 6870 for 90% of the price. So technically if it weren't for better power efficiency on the 77x0 cards your best bang for the buck is with the 6850.

The stated price points are their worst enemy here. (shooting themselves in the foot)

Yes, the cards perform well, and stay fairly cool too, but they are not high end parts and shouldn't be priced that way.

These will be a consideration for me when prices come down a lot.

Until then,..................

While I thought they were nice cards; there are better deals as other members said. Granted I thought they priced it well and for what they have, it is a good deal but I'm doubting if AMD is losing it in the pricing.

Still, good cards, good review; glad to know they're filling these product tiers as quickly as possible; in case NVIDIA launches the heavily expected onslaught on them. Looks like AMD's still able to put up good GPU's.

I'm a little confused, shouldn't the comparison be between the 6770 and 7770. The 6870 is the next step up the ladder.

Edit: After a quick look on the egg I get what the rest of you are saying. While the 7770's main competition at it's price point is the 550 TI, it is possible to find a few 6850s and even an off brand 560. Moving up just $10 places you firmly in 6850 territory, and it's hard to believe the average Joe would balk at an extra10 spot. The case for going with a 560 is a little murkier though as they don't show up with regularity until you hit about $185, and I can see some deciding to spend less.

I don't think they would have to make much of a price cut though. Somewhere around $139 - $149 would be just right.

But then again, with the 7770's  performance falling in between a 550TI and a 560, shouldn't it's price also?

I don't think you can call $159 the high end of the price spectrum, seeing how 580's and 7970's are $500 cards.

I'd say this card would fall into the mid range for AMD's video cards. The x400 and x500 entry level. The x600 being kind of an odd child I'd a call mainstream class, and the x800 series filling the gap between the high end and mid range cards.

Did you expect the 7770 to beat the 560?

I'm disappointed. The streaming processors were 800 on the 5770 and 6770, total bandwidth was higher, and this card has less TFLOPS along with some other cut-down features. I am presuming that AMD is banking on the idea that people will OC higher along with driver improvements to meet or exceed the 6850/70 and the 560's. I really don't see why they trimmed the SPU's down to 640. It seems senseless to me. I don't know who they're trying to fool here but a quick comparison of the 6770 shows that it is almost just as good if not better in some instances, at least on paper.

I believe that the 7790 will be their competitor for the 560.

I really am seeing some very stupid posts about this card.

I run an I7 2700k at 4.6GH on an Asus p8z77 motherboard16gig gskill 2133 ram with a GTX560 Ti.

I have jusr replaced the GTX560Ti with the 7770 and see no difference in performance ,reason is I dont game, I photoshop .

The GTX560 Ti had to go........no display ports for my Samsung 120HZ monitor which requires a DisPlayPort graphics card.

Next ...think about the price points....560Ti....$269.00..............560........$220.00...........550TI .............170.00....7770........$155.00

The 770 beats the crap out of the 550 so whats the problem ?

The 560ti is in another class and the 7770 is not meant to compete against the 560 cards.

Also stop bleating about buying a 6 series card like the 6850 6790or 6770 etc etc ..............if your been paying attention.....they are no longer sold,.......all the sites that have to order cannot fill orders from manufacturers...the stores with stock on hand are the only ones with these cards, but as most online stores run on a JIT system you wont find stock so get over it and move.

This is a great card for the money and its saving me plenty on my ever rising power bils.

Also I should mention that the card shown in this review is the version one Asus not the version two which does away with the mini display ports (why do they keep putting these in, you need a converter for displayport monitors) and comes with a full display port.

Since I posted earlier, one of my kids sent me a brand new 1GB XFX Radeon HD R7770 that they had won in a contest and couldn't use.

I kept it on a shelf for a month or so and then decided to buy another one, just like it,........for $150.00 shipped.

Now I have both of them installed together in Crossfire in an AMD A8-3850 APU system. The performance of one card was acceptable, but two together are quite nice. Below is a Heaven Bench result. Keep in mind that the A8-3850 is not the fastest CPU out there, or even close to it. My games play quite well with these two cards in the PC though.
