XFX Radeon HD 7770 Jet Black Edition Super Overclock vs GTX 560 Review

XFX Radeon HD 7770 Jet Black Edition Super Overclocked vs GTX 560 Overclocked


One of the aspects which really stands out about AMDs recent 7970 launch is that XFX were essentially the only manufacturer to have custom cards ready for launch. This was particularly appropriate as their cooler was far superior to the reference AMD model present on the other 7970s available at launch.

When it was time for the 7950 launch XFX were back again with a day 1 custom model and this time ensured that it was overclocked to enhance performance above the reference, and competitor, designs. With today's launch of the 7770 it therefore comes as no surprise that XFX are launching their own custom models, in fact several of them.

At the top of XFX's 7770 range is the "Jet Black" version of their usual Black Edition Overclocked model with this revision featuring heavily overclocked core and memory, well in excess of the AMD reference design. Today we have one on our test bench and will be putting it up against the GTX 560, also overclocked, in a selection of real world tests including Battlefield 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
