XFX's 7770 Monster has been spotted and reviewed.
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.
