The x770 cards from AMD have always been their most popular models, so does the HD7770 keep up this value and performance balance?

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 :/

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.*

kinda reminds me of the 8800 to 250gtx very marginal gain and on most test = no gain at all.. this card just isnt worth it unless it goes under £100...

To be fair the card it's self isn't bad, it is the 6770 replacement and it has a good performance increase over it. The thing that makes it seem bad is the pricing of the current cards and no price drop for the last lot. *

I agree, that AMD have got their pricing wrong with the new range of cards, but you have to think the fact they can charge what they like, until NVidya release their new range, when I think AMD will bring their prices down drastically to compete, which is where AMD has always done well, price - performance. Of course if wan't a quiet, more efficient and cooler card, the 28nm process is going to be better for you.

holy $hite.....that was wierd.....just as he was saying "vantage score six thousand six hundred sixty" and then BOOP "an error has occured" followed by a crash

but beyond that i do think the first 1GHz card is a milestone for sure....

congrats AMD
