Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 CrossFire Review reported at 03:51 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
As with any upgrade, the cost factor does have an influence on whether its a viable option or whether you should spend that little bit more to get a mid range card from the offset. When we look at the rough costs involved here two of these cards are going to set you back in the region of £200 which is right in the ball park of 6000 series cards. What we have to consider though is that not only are you getting GTX 580 levels of performance, you’re also getting the full advantage of the 7000 series features that these cards also have to offer.

Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 Overclock Edition Review reported at 03:44 PM

For all of this though the card as a whole is a fantastic deal, and for around about £100 the performance that is on offer for both 2D and 3D applications is a huge leap and to rival against a 6850 is not something that I thought I would be seeing.

Cooler Master Hyper 412S Review reported at 03:42 PM

Article Quote:
I see the cooler retailing for between £35 and £40. That seems like a good price for the solid build quality and performance. I’d definitely recommend this cooler.

AMD Radeon HD 7770 Review reported at 03:38 PM

How much will this little gem set you back? With the pricing we’ve been given, we have no indication on the UK price point, however expect the card to retail around the $159 (~£100) mark. With this rough pricing in mind this again shows its worth as a budget card for the everyday user. Naturally expect real world pricing to be a little higher than this once AMD’s partners put it through their design and build departments, but with what we’ve seen from their partners of recent months, expect interesting, sleek looking cards to make their stand on the market.

Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 Overclock Edition Review reported at 03:38 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
Sapphire provides you with a slight overclock over the reference specifications. At 150MHz and 125MHz overclocks on the Core and Memory respectfully gives the customer some performance boost without spending much more money and not having to do it themselves.

AMD Radeon HD 7750 Review reported at 03:36 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Is there any downers I have to put on this card? Well the only point I noted whilst testing the card was not that the fan was loud, but more its tone. This would come down the reference coolers ultra slim design and thus the pitch of the fans blades is very shallow. The culmination of these factors gave a tone that when at full load gave the card a nasty whine. This though would not affect the end user however as, as mentioned, AMD’s partners will put their own better improved coolers onto the boards for a better cooling efficiency. Certainly going by Sapphire’s 7950 OC cooler, I’d probably expect an almost silent cooler design.

So if you're a hardcore gamer, it's probably best to look at the GTX560 or HD6870 for a start, depending upon your loyalties. If you just want something that is quiet and fits in your HTPC setup with no gaming required, there are plenty of cards that will do that, at less money (the HD7950 for one).

AMD Radeon HD 7770 & HD 7750 Review reported at 03:33 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Legion Hardware
Article Quote:
Where the Radeon HD 7700 series excels is in its efficiency - the level of performance per watt is excellent. Unfortunately the pricing is not nearly aggressive enough and it will be interesting to see if AMD looks to improve things here in the coming months. For now we feel gamers are better served with existing GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6850 graphics cards.

RaidMax Aeolus Review reported at 03:23 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
The Raidmax Aeolus has some good ideas, but they are poorly executed. The best thing going for this case is its looks, rather than its functionality. I do like the somewhat tool-free design of this case as well as the drive flexibility, but the overall functionality of these options isn’t up to par to other cases. While there are four fans inside of this case, not all of them put out a lot of airflow, nor can you adjust them since there isn’t a 3-pin connector to attach to your motherboard or fan controller.

Asus HD7750-1GD5 Review reported at 03:20 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: TBreak
Article Quote:
So, for an extra 18%, you may as well drop the AMD HD 7750 and go for the Nvidia GTX 550Ti which gives an overwhelmingly huge performance increase. Had it not been for the 128-bit bandwidth, the HD 7750 may have had some chance of survival, but as it stands, AMD’s HD 7750 has to sell for another $20-30 lower, or suffer a fate of being a huge flop.

Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 Overclock Edition Review reported at 02:57 PM

Article Quote:
Of course, you get a factory overclock out of the box here, and a heatsink that runs wonderfully cool and quiet. Sapphire practically wrote the book on cool and quiet graphics cards, so we're suitably impressed again with this 7770 OC. Of course, it's not a powerhouse gaming card, still occupying a lower rung on AMD's performance ladder, but you really can't go wrong here if you have a modest budget.

XFX & Sapphire HD 7770 Review reported at 02:57 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
All in all, for about $160 this card is suitable for just about anyone who needs a card to play some of the latest games at suitable frame rates and not hurt too much from the purchase. Not only are these affordable, but they are quiet even at full speed and have low power draws at full load. Additionally, they look great with the combination of cooler and PCB schemes and with a short "wheel-base", fitting them into any case short of small form factors should not be a problem.

HIS Radeon HD 7750 iCooler Review reported at 02:48 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
If you absolutely need to stick to the budget, then the HIS 7750 is a nice card to get. It's a good upgrade on the cheap, power frugal, and the HIS iCooler heatsink runs cool and quiet. That's an impressive combination for a budget card. However, it's not much cheaper than the new Radeon 7770, so if you can scrape together a bit more cash then that's definitely a more enticing purchase.

AMD Radeon HD 7770 & HD 7750 Review reported at 02:42 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
Unlike the Radeon HD 7970 and HD 7950 3GB graphics cards the Cape Verde-based HD 7770 and HD 7750 1GB cards aren't nearly the slam dunk. Instead hitting the really high price points where competition is somewhat limited, these two enter into a field that is incredibly crowded both with previous AMD cards and current NVIDIA options. As it stands today the Radeon HD 7770 is the most power efficient card at the $160 price point though it is surrounded by cards that can offer similar or higher levels of performance for $30 less or $30 more.

Although it would greatly benefit from a price cut across the entire AMD 7770 series for gaming at 1920x1080 on a budget the Sapphire Radeon 7770 Overclocked runs near silent, cool and on minimal power while providing smooth gameplay at maximum detail in the latest games.

AMD Radeon HD 7770 & HD 7750 Review reported at 02:38 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Tech Report
Article Quote:
Of course, there is a silver lining. The reality is that the 7770 is almost undoubtedly far cheaper to produce than the 6850; its GPU is half as big, its memory interface is half as wide, and its circuit board likely has fewer layers. The 7770 can also get away with smaller heatsinks without costly heat pipes. It may cost more right now, but prices are almost assured to drop over time—and when they do, the 7770's ability to nip at the 6850's heels should turn it into a killer deal for gamers on a budget.

AMD Radeon HD 7770 & HD 7750 Review reported at 02:34 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
The HD 7770 has a lot going for it. The 28nm GCN architecture has allowed for high clock speeds, plenty of overclock headroom, a good jump in core per core performance over VLIW designs and excellent all-round efficiency. At first glance, it looks like there is a fair amount of forward progress being made with this spiritual successor to the HD 5770 but on some levels that just isn’t the case. Our hopes a great performing, affordable mid range part came crashing back to earth with the realization that AMD’s $159 SRP is simply out of touch with current market realities.

HIS have created a solid version of this product, but AMD have overpriced it at £100. Drop the price to £80 inc vat then it makes more sense.

Article Quote:
Overall the HD 7770 is a good product with lots of potential, if there weren't the sky high price. AMD's officially suggested retailer pricing is "starting at $159", so we'll probably see retailers cashing in on these cards with inflated prices, like on the HD 7970 and HD 7950. Even at $159 the cards are way too expensive. They are up against the GTX 460 which is 20$ cheaper and delivers similar performance. HD 6850 ($135) and HD 6870 ($155) are faster, and give you much more bang for your buck, up to 30% more! If you are willing to shop used, you can find HD 5770 cards for well below $100, that have all the same major features and better price/performance, too. It seems that in its lower mid-range segment, the HD 7770 is the most expensive, least money-efficient card. However, I'm confident that AMD has lots of headroom on pricing for future price wars with NVIDIA. In my opinion a fair price for the HD 7770 would be below $130.

In the final assessment, however, the most versatile and impressive board in the roundup that stood out in terms of overall features, refinement, and performance was the ASUS P8H67-M EVO. At a price of $125, It's a good investment for a micro ATX powerhouse that can fulfill just about any need including gaming.
