XFX Radeon HD 7770 Monster Graphics Card Spotted

In January, XFX launched its Radeon HD 7750 Monster graphics card. Now the HD 7770 Monster has been pictured and will likely hit the market soon.

The graphics card will have factory overclocked settings, where the core speed will be 1,100 MHz and memory speed at only 5.0 GHz. For reference, AMD's reference specifications have core speed at 1,000 MHz and memory at 4.5 GHz. The card carries 1 GB of GDDR5 that runs on a 128-bit memory interface. These numbers are exactly a 10 percent jump over the reference numbers, and the scores in the review rise accordingly.

The PCB and cooler are nearly identical. The heatsink is a simple heatspreader covered by a plastic shroud with a center fan. The cooler blows air both into the computer case and out the rear.

The card will first be released in China with no word yet of pricing or U.S. availability.

  • I think it's time more GPU companies add LED's to their cards... or even add a glowing Title to their card like "HD 7770 Monster Edition" in a glowing Green or Red. I know that would make me want to buy a select card even more.

    The 7770's an entry level card. I think that people who go for entry level cards like these don't really go for aesthetics(probably because windowed cases cost aren't available all that cheap. But it would be really nice to see things like rgb led's being included with mid-high end cards like 7870/660 - 7970/680. Titan's LED is already being put to good use by evga's precisionx.

  • Blowing hot air into the case is the fail whale...Also, these dudes are probably kicking themselves for not getting this out before the 7790, not much value here considering they will probably charge $20 more than a regular 7770.
