Introduction

Diamond Radeon HD 6770 XOC 1GB Video Card Review 02 | TweakTown.com

It's been a while since we've looked at anything from Diamond, but today we look at a card that is showing up a bit lately, the HD 6770. Of course, in typical Diamond fashion we're checking out an overclocked model with the HD 6770 we're looking at today coming with the XOC tag.

There's not much else we need to say at the moment; you should know we're already a fan of the HD 6770 and we're looking forward to seeing what Diamond are able to offer us today with their XOC version.

Before we get into the performance side of things, let's look what's going on with the package that Diamond has put together. Once we've done that we'll move onto the card and check out the specifications to find out just what kind of overclock is on offer from the XOC model we're looking at today.

Then the fun stuff begins and we get into the performance side of things to see what's going on before we wrap everything up.

Checking out the box, you can see the front of the box has a heavy focus on Need for Speed Shift II. I've played a bit of it, but not heaps. It does look pretty cool what they've done with the box, though, as it really manages to stand out. You can also see that XOC label present on the front.

Moving inside the box, we haven't got heaps going on with a manual, driver CD, CrossFire cable, DVI to VGA connector and Molex to 6-Pin PCI-E power connector. Along with that, we've got a mini catalog showcasing some of Diamonds products and inside that there's a $10 off voucher included for the next time you buy something from the Diamond store.

I must admit, it would've been nice to see Need for Speed Shift II included in the box since it was quite heavily mentioned on the front of the box, but it's not the end of the world. Diamond doesn't advertise it as being included either, so we can't fault them for that, plus who's going to complain about a $10 off voucher included.
