In Game Performance
We didn’t expect to see any surprises when testing this card in game and for the most part we didn’t. But due to a refined driver we saw big jumps over the other HD 7770’s in Crysis 2 DX9. The same goes for F1 2011 even though we don’t have any other results to compare to other then our GTX 670, but our results showed the HD 7770 coming in right with the GTX 670 in F1 2011, It’s unclear if this is the result of a large AMD bias or more likely ineffective drivers from Nvidia with the game. Beyond those two issues we saw the same pairing of the three HD 7770’s together on all of our other in game results.
I am still impressed as the results we saw from such a reasonably priced card. If you aren’t looking to play the most cutting edge games like Battlefield 3 you can expect the HD 7770 to play anything else on the market. You are actually getting performance in line with last year’s top of the line AMD cards.
