PRODUCT INTRODUCTION



With a videocard market literally saturated with cost effective options from ATI and Nvidia, it is starting to get harder and harder to see which on is the best bang for the buck. You have the HD 4830, 4850, 4870, and now 4890, but which one should you buy?


But wait, now there is a new option in town that skirts into the performance realm of ATI chips and is deemed the HD 4770. With its new 40nm manufacturing process in the RV740 core and a 750Mhz ( 1960 GFLOP ) core speed coupled with DDR5 memory with a bandwidth of 51.2 GB/s, this "lowest" option in ATI's performance hand might not be the "slowest" card they have out at this moment. And with the smaller manufacturing process, this card will be cooler and use less power to perform the same video rendering as the older version still up for sale now.


So is the HD 4770 just an introductory taste of what is to come or will it flop on its face when compared to cards already on the market? Well stay tuned and you will find out. Brace yourself for a surprise.......
