In Game Performance
Our in game results fell right in line to what we expected in comparison to the slightly faster XFX R7770. Every game we tested with showed the marginally lower clocked Sapphire card just under the R7770 but the difference was as low as .4 FPS at times. Frankly that small difference isn’t enough to get all worked up about; a small bump up in clock speed in your AMD control panel and you will see the same numbers. What is more important is how this card performed in each game. Will you be able to play all of today’s most demanding games at their highest settings smoothly? No. But you won’t have any problem playing every single one of them at medium to high settings at a resolution of 1080p. This isn’t a top of the line card by any means, but to be able to even play every game puts this card ahead of the last gen budget cards by a mile.
