XFX R7770 Black Edition Double D - Overall and FV

Overall and FV

The R7770 and the HD 7770 cards as a whole come in at an odd price in AMD’s current product lineup. At a MSRP of $159 for the reference design and $179 for the XFX Double D Black Edition that we tested in this review both cards fail to outperform the HD 6870 that is currently selling for less ($155 before rebate). I think that the $159 price point isn’t really a bad price and the price premium for the XFX Double D Black Edition. The problem is the previous generation cards are still to available and are at discounted prices as they clear out stock. That as a whole is really disappointing because I think the HD 7770 is a great card and perfect for someone looking for low thermal output, power usage, and just enough performance to be able to enjoy all of today’s top games at medium to high settings. Hopefully as things settle down the price drops down to a price point that will make it a better value. Until then I really can’t recommend picking one up. Based on the price alone I would give this card a 6/10, but its silent performance and low power requirements deserve a little credit. If you are looking for an HD 7770 this is a great card to get, but like I said before the reasons for looking at an HD 7770 card at all are very limited currently.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers. If you are interested in writing for Wes here at LanOC you can reach out to him directly using our contact form.

Once the 6870's run out of stock the price makes more sense. But I don't see any 7770's in stock.

If the price was lower than whats available now it would be a better deal.

On the other hand, XFX is making some seriously sexy ass cards. These things just look beautiful!
