I believe the Radeon HD 7770 is less powerful than the Radeon HD 6850.

Okay, I'm really curious here. In the past they way they did things was that the higher the series number, the better it is. Why is this not the case anymore? It makes shopping for a card really confusing now. And to add to the discussion, I just bought an XFX HD 7770 overclocked edition today and I am really loving it. Especially since its a major upgrade from my XFX HD 4670 :bounce:

GPUs haven't been advancing by huge leaps and bounds lately. The difference between a top end card this generation and a top end card last generation is around 30%. So you do get overlap where a performance tier is simply moved down on the existing hierarchy eg. 6850 is now about = to 7770 and 7850 is now a bit better than the 6950.

For AMD cards pay more attention to the second digit to get an idea where the performance is at. Same with Nvidia. The higher the second digit is , the better the card will perform.

6850 = 7770
6950 = 7850
6970 = 7870 and 7850 SSC/SOC
