Good performance when you consider the price. Definite "recession friendly" GPU

Impressive little card, indeed. Certainly a nice value for the roughly $100.

The cheapest 4850 I could find, was this one:

Radeon HD 4850 512MB - $99.99 (after $20.00 mail-in rebate)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102824

So, considering you can get a revised and newer product for the same or cheaper price, makes the 4770 a winner, imo.

My only critique point is the naming scheme. Having the same (or better) performance as the 4850, they should have called it other than 4770. Let's hope that customers don't think the 4850 is the better one.

I would love to see two of these crossfire'd vs the 4890 and Geforce 275. I would think the 4770's would hold up well in frames and power consumption.

73w x2 So probably not more than 160w for two 4770's.

does this flurry of GPUs in the last 2 years annoy anyone..?? it does me, they're not releasing anything new, they just chop & change them slightly..


higher clocks

more or less SPs

higher or lower bus speed

& then they tart them up as ''new'' cards & push them out the door....

These little things make me wonder if I should sell my HD4870,and crossfire 2xHD4770... I would have better performance, and less energy consumption... That is really a great card, but I think that this means that HD4850 will be phased out shortly...

2x HD4770 20% faster than a HD4890.

I'm just wondering why they haven't smacked this kind of cooler on HD4850.
That slim one is well slim, but also cools like crap. These double coolers with external exhaust are much better.

Also look at the ground in BIA texture filtering quality comparison.
Ground on Radeon image is much sharper. Just look at that white thing in the bottom right side. Or the entire texture sharpness...
