Sapphire HD 7770 GHz FleX Edition Graphics Card Review
Sapphire HD 7770 GHz Edition FleX Graphics Card Review
For a group of products which tend to be based on only a few key architectures to an average consumer the choice of graphics cards available can seem like a minefield. It isn’t just the case of knowing a 7990 is faster than a 7970 and that quicker than 7950… even within those parts there are overclocks, custom designs and feature differences. Not all cards are created equal and once a budget has been assigned the minor differences between each could swing a consumer one way or another.
In the mainstream arena one of the key products of the moment is the Radeon HD 7770, a card designed to offer an excellent price to performance ratio. For those who are on a limited budget keeping costs to a minimum can mean money spent elsewhere and with their FleX Edition Sapphire look to facilitate multi-screen gaming at minimal cost. Today we have their new Radeon 7770 FleX Edition (GHz Edition) on our test bench, but is 5760×1080 gaming achievable with it?
Packaging and Bundle
A familiar box design greets us for the latest Sapphire card with a military theme which has been used by them before. Some key product features are listed on the box and inside we find a decent bundle of power cable, DVI to VGA adapter, software CD and product documentation. As a nice extra Sapphire also include a free HDMI cable.
PowerColor offer their own branded version of the liquid cooled R9 295 X2… and now for those who want a similar level of framerate they have their air cooled dual core R9 290X with Devil 13 branding. Today we take a look at this R9 290X2 to see what Powercolor can do with their custom design card in a selection of games including Battlefield 4 and GRID Autosport at 4K resolution.
