  1. 6870, but i suspect the 7770 may get some nice boosts in 1-5 months with drivers.

    Those are 5850 6850 7850, but as you can see the 6870 would beat a 7850 idk how, but according to their review it would. Only the 7950/7970 in this new series seem to be mildly impressive. The 5xxx series continues on.

    another review that is not relevant with a 7770 but, you can expect better performance of the 6870.

  2. HD 6870 hands down.
  3. 6870 would outperform the 7770, but due to the fact its built in the 40nm architecture compared to the 7770's 28nm, it would theorectically have more power usage and slightly higher temperatures. (theoretically means im too lazy to check)
  4. Yes, the HD 7770 consumes 80W at TDP and the HD 6870 consumes 151W at TDP.

    I am currently using a 7770 with a 300W PSU. ;)

    Jesus 80 watts? Thats ridiculous

    7770 cf for gtx 580 class performance and 160watts power draw LOL FTW


    Lol, Geforce 480 ONLY uses 250w

    Edit: sarcasm :)

    I did mean x2 7770 = a low 160watts max power draw combined total as in 80watts a piece x2 = 160 watts max


    I got the point don't worry, :) guess what im going to be crossfiring?

    Guess what? The HD 7750 consumes 55W, the same than a GT 530, but 5x the performance. This proves what 28nm is capable of...
    Also, it doesn't need a 6-pin connector since it is below 75W.

    Everyone gets the HD 7750 for a low-power consumption HTPC. :)

    No more valid reason to buy a HD 6570 because of a low-wattage PSU. :sol:
