AMD Radeon HD 6770 VS. nVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti

what graphic's card is the best? I am guessing it's the 550 ti but 6770 has higher memory clock speed uh... I maybe wrong, correct me if I am wrong please... thank you :love:

    yea, but for some reason's 6770 has higher memory clock speed than 550 ti, though 550 ti has better aspects in speed :??:
    I am bit confused, since 6770 has higher clock, but I think 550 ti is a bit more faster , it has a bit high memory bandwidth & shader clock ,
    uh... :sarcastic:

    The 550Ti will perform better. The 6850 is the 550Ti's competition and performs better.
  4. Why care about the clocks? Does a Celeron @ 2.8GHz keep up with a P4 2.6GHz? Clock speeds only matter when dealing with members of the same "family". And the 550TI and 6770 are not from the same family.

    Last I looked, the 550TI and 6770 are more or less equals. The 550TI is a touch faster, but not really enough that you'd notice. (and so close to the 5770/6770 that I consider them to be similar/identical in performance.) 6770 can get you Eyefinity on one card, while the 550TI give you cuda and uses a bit more power. When choosing between these cards just buy the cheapest.

    As for the 6850, thats more like a GTX460. Both of those cards are faster then the 550TI/6770.

    I know , I am just asking which among the two are better :??: thank you for the response and putting up detailed message :)

    do you mean price competition? becasue a 550ti is just slightly better then a 6770 and thats even a stretch, a 6850 destroys a 550ti.

    550ti has 192 bit magistrale and 6770 has 128 bit.Thats the reason why is 550ti faster despite of lower clocks.
  10. Their chip design is why AMD products with more cores can perform worse than NVidia with less cores. Two different moedls can run at the same speed for example but tthe newer more efficent model will outpetfprm the oldet one with the same core count and same brand.
  11. presence need not to be proved..
    i had both experience with hd6770 and gtx550ti...
    and gtx550ti is far far ahead and more faster than 6770..i see the difference and it ur turn
  12. They are more or less equal. But the 6770 uses less power and is normally cheaper.

    Your turn?

    This is false, I have currently have both in two different computers and the 6770 is hands down better, cheaper price and uses less power. 6770 is better and it's not even close.


    Your clearly not testing games with these cards otherwise you would see the 6770 is better.
  14. I'll agree that the 6770 is probably a little better now due to better drivers over the last year. But upon release; I'd have to say the 550ti came out strong. Either way, both cards are "ok" for today. But overall, the price/performance/power use ratio must go to the 6770. The drivers have done nothing but evolved, the card isn't bad for being a budget line card of last generation, and honestly they are CHEAP compared to competition.

    At the time of their release though, the major competition between the 550Ti wasn't the 67xx series. It was indeed the 6850 which now does beat the 550ti in every aspect. But if you do the research; you'll find that the 550Ti was a definite competitor against the 6850. I tell you this out of the knowledge that I was shopping for those cards during that time. I ended up with a pair of 550Ti's simply because I bought the first and five months later I couldn't resist the SLi urge. Now, with the later drivers, the 550Ti can't even compete with the 68xx line simply because the drivers from nVidia haven't really done much to improve the performance of the 550Ti since release. You can take this however you want, just my personal experience and I hope it helps.
  15. That was the problem with the 550TI steddora. It performed like a 5770/6770. But Nvidia priced it just below the 6850. It was one of the worst price/performance cards I had ever seen. It's not a bad card. It just cost to much.
  16. Yeah, when I was shopping around, I nearly bought the GTX 570, and really was pointing towards the 69xx line but didn't want to spend the price. I watched and found a steal on a single GTX550ti from Asus for $130. About five months later I paid $140 for the same card; the pricing was way off on all of the cards then I would say. Kind of like the 79xx series when they came about. I am glad I bought the 550's when I did as actually compared to competing cards (the 2x550ti cards performed similar to the 570) I saved quite a bit. I knew they wouldn't last long; but they did perform quite well to hold me over until I bought my single GPU, my new 7950. Now if I knew what the present performance ratings of drivers/cards would have been; I would have dropped a little more on the 6850 and had a 6850 crossfire setup and probably have waited until the GTX7xx or HD8xxx series of cards. But as for now; I'm extremely happy with my card and the pair of GTX's actually did perfectly for what I wanted. The pair ran BF3 on ultra (with lowered AA settings) pretty well and kept me from buying a card from the last gen that I wouldn't have been able to afford at the time.
