130° HIS HD 7770 Review

While the HIS HD 7770 can hold its own in popular games, its strength lies in its new architecture, with its improved processing power and multimedia features. The improved processing power was really evident in the Heaven benchmark with its heavy tessellation.

Well by looking at the graph it's an easy choice to just buy a GTX560 for $20 more instead of a HD7770!

Your getting way more Frames Per second with a GTX560 than a HD7770!

GamingPerson2357d ago

so in three years there will be a 10070?
or gtx 980 or 1080?

this is madness!

THIS. IS. PC GAMING! (bad joke I know, couldn't help myself.)

kinda like the name of gtx 1080. It will probably do 1080P at 120FPS, ultra setting and in 3D @@.

Smashbro292357d ago

I'm leaning towards a gtx 680. Should I get it?

Draperc2357d ago (Edited 2357d ago )

depends on what games you're trying to run as well as the resolution. some games don't need something as powerful as a gtx 680 to play maxed out with a playable framerate.

EDIT : I suggest looking on youtube for some benchmarks for different cards and see which one would be best for you as far as price/performance goes.

If you have the money, why not?

If you're running below 1080p, there will be a ton of power going to waste. Even for anything but BF3, it's pretty much overkill, since I have a GTX 560 ti and am maxing every other game out at 60fps, 1080p. I even have BF3 maxed out at high framerates, just without any anti-aliasing. But you'll also be future proofed GPU-wise for a very long time, and you could always buy a better monitor down the line.

So yeah, if you have the money and don't care, just go for it. If you want to save money but still want a high-powered card, just go down the tree a little, or wait for the rest of the GTX 600 series to release.

I also heard that once the GTX 690 releases, the GTX 680 will get a pretty big price drop, or just get a rebrand with a different number and a lower price. Not sure if it's entirely true, but that would also be a reason to wait.

I guess it's time to upgrade my 5850 with a 7850 later this year
