Many tech sites are raving about these being a great value purchase for crossfire x2 usage - even knocking the HD 4890 and GTX 275 down in a few tests.

It seems that if you're on a budget and FPS on a 1920x1080 or lower res screen are what you want, and now - and your not too bothered about Direct X 11 coming soon, then these could be for you. Hopefully AMD will release a x2 version soon.

Still think i'll stick with a more powerful single GPU for my current build.

The card still physically takes up two slots, but doesn't use the second slot to push air out of the case. A strange change. If they could improve on the reference design while sticking to a true single-slot design, that would be interesting.

Hi, two questions:

1) What was the test setup for this review (was it just he same as the previous review on the ATI4770: http://www.trustedreviews.c...

2) Specs wise how do the reference and HIS versions compare (memory, shaders, core speeds, etc) as there are certainly differences in the resulting performance charts between the two cards.

@Eggburt1969: Yes, the test setup was the same as the previous review. The specs of the cards are also identical.

The 4770 has received some good reviews, although availability has been somewhat limited due to low yields from TSMC's 40nm production process. The biggest problem for this card is the fact that the much more powerful 4870 can be found online for just over a tenner more.
