To read this review go to: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_7770/
21% better than 5770/6770 in raw performance
20% worse than 5770/6770 in performance per dollar
prices should come down a bit after most of the previous generation stock has been cleared
Yet the HD 7750 has no issues like that, RIGHT NOW.
suddenly, HD 7770 is doing better than HD 6870 then suddenly its slower than HD 6850...same with HD 7750...
I am the only one who thinks these should have been named 7670 and 7570 sice they consume very little power (especially 7750), perf its no so good apart from a few games from many? ...and prices are like wtf!?
What's the point of this. It performs worse than previous 6850/6870 yet is more expensive. Derp.
my 6850 is still winning.
Yeah, earlier I just looked at the summaries. Priced between the 6870 and GTX 560...and performed worse than both most of the time. WTF AMD?
omg what a FAIL: hd 7770 = hd 6790 preformance for hd 6870 price - WTF! is this 1.april joke? new generation with much worse price/preformance, well this is something I never wanted to see.... oh, AMD I hope you die for this!
Chillax, when AMD will stop pointing their finger at NVIDIA an laugh they will drop prices.
And retailers WON'T drop the prices for the 6850, 6870, GTX 560?
I assume that the price drop wont be as drastic as it would be with the brand new series of graphics cards
probably OT: is there supposed to be a 78xx series to fill the gap? (as in, not from some sort of rebranding...)
^Yes, those will arrive in march i believe, codenamed Pitcairn
Pitcairn should launch at CeBIT.
Welcome to the new AMD business concept. If it wasn't too clear until now since the 7970/50 don't have yet competition, this 7000 series is a bad joke concerning performance/price ratio although I was expecting the 7770 to be priced EVEN higher.
Same performance as the last generation at the same price after more than a year. Wait and see the 7870 performance, if this trend continues I guesstimate it will be around the 6950 for 280-300$
I gues, from what I have seen now with HD 7xxx, that HD 7870 preformance will be like HD 6950, but price will be like HD 6970.
Even though we all saw HD 79xx series redicilous and bizzare price tags lot of people still praised and celebraited new geberation begginings.... I gues they recive and will recive what they want.
I was hoping for a performance increase about equal of that the 7970/7950 had over the 6900 series. But no such luck. The 7700s should have launched with a $20 lower price tag.
Even a not so drastic price drop for the previous gen 6850 and 6870 would still make it a better choice over the 7770 because of the performance gap.
6850 - $135 (107%)
7770 - $160 (100%)
Now make the 7770 drop in price by $30. Then the 6850 drops by $5 (or even not at all).
6850 - $135/$130 (107%)
7770 - $130 (100%)
Even without the $5 drop the 6850 still looks the better choice because of the 7% advantage for just $5.
Now the remaining attractive feature of this would be how low its power consumption is.
And would still not be an outright better option than a previous gen card that's STILL cheaper (6850).
this reminds me of the evergreen launch, 5770 had similar performance to 4870, probably a little lower due to early driver issues, and had the pricetag of a 4890. Not to the same extent as what we are seeing today but it does ring a bell.
So let me get this straight. It performs worse than a 6850, but costs slightly more than the 6870? That is quite bad. I sure hope the blame is on the drivers, or AMD better lower the price to the same as a 6850.
And if it is the drivers' fault, it then begs another question: where the f**k are the new drivers? The first HD 7000 card has been "launched" last December, then "released" in January. Another followed towards the end of the month, and then two new cards are out today. There are now 4 cards with no "proper" drivers.
it's not the drivers, it's the pricing
Such a shame it cost too much...
Or at least, more than the 6850 which is a bit disappointing...
7770 Such a lovely number...
AMD - please let loose of the prices!
