Radeon HD 7770 Put Through 3DMark 11

AMD's Radeon HD 7770 mid-range graphics card, which is slated for a little later this month, got its first public shot at 3DMark 11. The card was put through the Performance preset of the benchmark, where it scored P3535 points. The bench was driven by an Intel Core i7-3960X processor. The reviewer also took GPU-Z screenshots of this card, revealing low core temperature. Based on the 28 nm Cape Verde GPU, the HD 7700 is said to have 640 Graphics CoreNext stream processors, and 1 GB of memory over a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. It is designed for sub-$200 price points.

Based on this score alone, HD 7770 is somewhere between HD 6850 and HD 6870. Mission accomplished for AMD.

Love the low power design. I wonder if either the 7770 or 7750 will be powered only by the bus?

performs similar to my oc'd GTX 460 SE while consuming less power.

HD 7750 might be bus-powered. There are pictures on the internet of the HD 7770 having a single 6-pin power input.

Exactly. All at a lower power envelope.

It's pretty awesome, the bandwidth nearly halved from the HD6850, even the shaders decreased.

People were wondering if it would perform as well as the HD5770 or just beat it. But here again, AMD proved it.

With a GPU smaller than HD5770, to the performance between HD6850/6870, at a slightly lower price point than them, AMD has indeed hit the spot.

Mine 6850 got 37xx by Graphics Score, n that just a Ref. HIS, not Turbo or OC Ver. This 7770 just got 3147, n u said bettween 6850 - 6870? Have u ever benchmarked 6850 4 one time at least? $200? MISSION FAIL !

Result are quite ok i guess.. this is still on stock with cpu also basically at stock i guess..
It does have some improvement compared to HD6770, maybe around HD6790 performance when stock i guess.. can't wait to see some official benchmarks..

That HD 6770 is overclocked from its 850/1250 MHz reference speed. With HD 7770, 1000/1125 MHz is the reference speed.

Yes, I have benchmarked a HD 6850 4 one time at least. Nowhere does the article mention $200 as the price.

P3535 not 3147......Oh i see what you mean by 3147 my bad,But look at GT4 test there ,The 6770 above got a score of 7.78 while the 7770 got a score of 10.01 and that is where the cards performance comes into the new design of it....

so, AMD, will me offer a 6870 preformance (or little less) for 6870 price ("It is designed for sub-$200 price points")! yee haaa - new generation is arrived!

Thank you Cloudwan, your screenshot tells me something amazing.
Cape Verde is smaller then Juniper, despite this it has 400+ million more transistors. More so despite being a factory overclocked 6770, and then further overclocked as well it lost to the Cape Verde chip, amazing!
Anyone know if the 7870 will bring to the fire fight? It could very well be twice the chip this one is hmmm . . .

Yes, the most plausible specs of Pitcairn are 1280 GCN cores, 80 TMUs, 32 ROPs, 256-bit GDDR5, "GHz Edition" (≥1000 MHz) core clocks, etc.

Initially I thought these were scores of the Ivy IGP on the i7 37XXK variant. Still even for the 7770, this is a pretty huge score.

I AM NOT DISSAPOINT.

Looking forward to 7850/70, more so than I was looking forward to 7970...

Haha same here.
Looking at buying a 7870 at the end of the spring this year when prices(hopefully) drop a bit after the release of some competition by the other camp.

And it'll be priced between them too. They keep raising the price tier on successive parts because they're terrified of the idea of people realizing a proper 7670 is all the performance most gamers would ever need. At least until new consoles are released.

If it came out at 6770 price or 5770 price ($130-$160) I would have been impressed. If it really comes out nearer the $200 mark I will not be. What you end up with is a revised lower power consumption 6850, that is nice, but disappointing. Price point, IMO, is more what relates to performance comparison to the last generation. So, I am guessing the 7750 is probably more or less what will take the 6770's place.

Where can I get a new GTX460 for £50 from?? Got any links as I can tell a few people I know. I am serious as that would be awesome value for money - GTX460 1GB SLI for £100 would be epic value for money!

Edit!!

I had a quick look on HUKD and I don't find any mention of a £50 GTX460. Has it ended?? :(

There's no way you can pick up a 460 for £50, perhaps £70-£80 used, £50 not in a month of sundays.
