AMD's Radeon HD 7700 series is going to be one of the more important series out of the new HD 7000 line up for the simple fact that the mid-range model is going to be one of the top sellers for the company. Consisting of two models at the moment, the HD 7750 and the HD 7770 with the latter being what we have here today, we've got our fingers crossed that AMD are able to stand out in the highly competitive mid-range market.
Like the other HD 7000 series cards we've looked at, XFX was one of the first samples to arrive and for that reason we'll be checking out their offering first. Following along with the "Black Edition" theme that we've been seeing from them, this one goes a step further with the "Black Edition S Super Overclocked" naming scheme.
What makes it so super overclocked? Well we don't know yet, but we'll find out soon enough. Before we do that, though, there are a few things we need to do. First we want to see what's going on with the package, XFX hasn't done too bad here lately and we hope moving down to a lower price bracket card doesn't impact the bundle too much.
Once we've looked at the package we'll move onto the card to see just exactly what's going on with the HD 7770 Black Edition S Super Overclocked before we of course look at the specifications of the model including the clock speeds. Once that's done we'll get into the performance of the new model and just see how it goes in our benchmark line up before we wrap everything up.
Frist, though, let's see what's going on with that bundle.
The bundle isn't bad, we've got a load of paperwork and the cool door sign. Along with that we've got the sweet Black Edition case badge, DVI to HDMI, DVI to VGA and CrossFire bridge.
It's not a huge bundle, but considering the mid-range nature of the card, it's pretty good.
