Despite serious changes in the graphics card market, 2011 may be called a year of “cold launches”. It looks like both, AMD and Nvidia, decided to spend their marketing budgets only on expensive products. Therefore, many interesting new graphics cards in the mainstream segment were announced without much excitement surrounding them. Today we will try to make up for lack of attention to one of them – the AMD Radeon HD 6770.
Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Just Cause 2
The third-person shooter Just Cause 2 shows how tough the competition among mainstream graphics cards is. The Radeon HD 5770/6770, GeForce GTX 550 Ti and PowerColor PCS+ HD6770 Vortex II are all very close in performance, but the PowerColor card's 17 fps at the maximum resolution is far from acceptable.
Lost Planet 2
The pre-overclocked frequencies of the PowerColor card cannot help it deliver playable speed in Lost Planet 2. This is largely due to the weak performance of the RV840’s tessellation unit. The Radeon HD 6850 cannot ensure a playable frame rate, either, whereas the GeForce GTX 550 Ti indicates that AMD should work to improve their graphics architecture.
