Hi folks,
I just stumbled across this article regarding the new HD7770. In a nutshell 2 x HD7770 in Xfire outperform both GTX580 and 7970 and is over £150.00 cheaper.

http://xfxforce.com/en-gb/home.aspx

OK you could always add another 580 / 7970 at a later date but if anyone is :)  in the market for a beast of a setup and can't afford more than around £250.00 for the GPU it's got to be worth considering.
I just thought I'd share it with you all.

Just stop it with this nonsense please. Not only are low-end dual GPU setups almost always buggy with microstuttering, there's also absolutely no way that a 7770 in CF is going to beat a 7970... the 7970 (@ 1125/1575) trades blows with a 560ti SLI setup, and the 560ti is MUCH faster than a 7770.

Please get your facts straight next time.

They are straight son shine! I'm here to help people. Did you check out the link? Or are you just thick?

What link? You mean the link where XFX says the XFX HD 7770 is good? Please. Get out of here with that nonsense.

You want a link that means something? How about this:

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/HIS/HD_7750_7770_Cro...

Shows that the 7770 CF Is 40% slower than a stock 7970. Check your facts next time before you get on here acting like you know what you're talking about.

Oh dear oh dear. Yes my link was rubbish. However I received an e-mail from XFX with the promotion. If you XFire 2X 7770 Black editions it's faster than 580 / 7970. Also if this were not true why would XFX be promoting this when if they sold their 7970 they would make more money? By the way I do know what i'm talking about. I'm just trying to save people money. Have you not had dual GPU's? I run a HD5970 and would buy another dual GPU setup when it can longer cope. :kaola:

Your wrong, accept it. The 7770 is not better than a 6850, can a 6850 in cf beat a 7970? No it cant, Even if the fps were to double with the cf it would still not beat the 7970

At the following consolidated results I only see the HD7770 Crossfire being slower than GTX 580, and much slower than HD7970 (the crossfire have half the performance compared to HD7970 at 2560x1600 for example)

It seems everyone here think they know more than XFX. Think not.

Or maybe we just didn't fall for their marketing BS hook line and sinker, like you did.

Show some benches to back up what you and XFX are claiming, or shut up. Real world results say you are dead wrong, and unless you have something other than marketing material to back up what you're saying, your words carry absolutely no weight. Be condescending all you want, it's not changing the benchmarks that have already been done.

Wow the old 5770 is still better than the new 7750

Are you actually being serious, Did you look at the charts? The 7970 performs up to 100% better in some cases that cf 7770's

no benches, just "oh xfx tells me...". i have an xfx 7970 DD black but i chose it on benches and reviews not what some guy from the company told me

I'm failing to see anything on the page you linked that look remotely like benchmarks, or anything else that back up such a bold claim as yours.

ITT: OP either has the critical thinking ability of about a 4 year old, or is going trololololololololol.

My money is on the latter. Let's not feed the troll - he's been pretty clearly shut down already. This thread was over as soon as the benchmarks were posted solidly refuting the OP's argument.


With nearly 500 posts i doubt hes a troll, 4 maybe a bit harsh? Lets say 6

Yeah, because trolls so commonly have hundreds of posts and apologize for being wrong.

Wait...

I'm no troll. Check all my threads if you can. I'm wrong on this matter granted but this has only happened to me a couple of times. Like I said i'll check my facts more clearly in future.
