Sapphire HD 4770 PCIe Graphics Card

3DMark05/06/Vantage Results


3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis
 
The Sapphire HD4770 had a good string of results throughout the synthetic 3D benchmarks from Futuremark. While the HD4770 could not quite match the performance of the HD4850 one has to consider that the HD4850 used in our tests is the XXX overclocked edition so the results would actually be considerably closer should a stock version of the HD4850 have been used. When the 4770's were used in Crossfire the results are plain to see, Crossfire scaling was nothing short of magnificent, occasionally doubling the score of it's single card counterpart.
 
Let's see if this transfers over to our real world gaming benchmarks...

Good review mate, have to agree about the single slot cooler, would have been a great card for a media center if you wanted to do a bit of gaming as well

Awesome little graphics card. Nice to see one with a single slot cooler too

This doesn't have a single slot cooler - just one of my critcisms. Great card all the same though and I agree about the 8800GT comment.

Pretty much a carbon copy of the ASUS variant in terms of performance.

How much in terms of quality settings, can these cards achieve these days ? in comparison to perhaps a 8800gt ?

My apologies. Misread one of the above posts and had only really looked at the performance figures. Just read the review fully now.

Quality is not too bad, resolutions seemed to have a bigger effect (2560x1600 is pain full to watch at times). For your average gamer though they are not half bad at all.

Sorry m8, I meant like how far the typical new amd card can throw up AA settings and the other Q within games.

(in comparison to the 8800gt if u like)

Well I don't have an 8800GT to hand m8 so I can't really compare directly I'm afraid. I may just have a 1GHz version coming soon though, so if you want me to try your preference of res/AA setting gimme a shout.

Nah w3bb0 m8, simpler, if u go into a game, what is selectable from the graphic options thing in terms of quality settings.

We know that if u go into "a" game with something like a 8800GT, for example, u can go 16xAA and 8x on filtering (or whatever), and that weird glow thing (that works well in TW I might add).

Despite what the "performance" may be, what u get on the amd's these days ?

If memory serves it can go up to 24xCu AA (custom AA) or 8x Standard MSAA with upto 8x AF.

Rastalovich
That's pretty good. I guess that custom AA is like the QQ.

(I have no idea tbh)

Good to see some quality breaking in there instead of just raw fps.
