    Today we have another bang for buck product a product that I like very much. As what ATI is doing today is pretty remarkable. They are releasing the Radeon HD 4770 a mainstream product at a budget price....

    More...

    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/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102824

    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'm most likely gonna snap this one up since I am in need of a better gaming card.

    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 :nerd: 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.
