AMD HD7770 Review

Test Setup

As is always the case now, but worth noting nonetheless, our GPU test rig is based upon our X79 setup with the beefy i7-3960X underpinning it.

AMD HD7770
Catalyst HD7970 Drivers 12.1
Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4.6GHz
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
Corsair AX1200W
Corsair GTX8
Corsair H100
Windows 7 Ultimate x64


Similarly to the HD7970 and HD7950 the HD7770 is capable of running at a pretty big 1150MHz on the core. Certainly any performance deficit wont be clockspeed related.
