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 RPG
Dragon Age II
This RPG is really more like a third-person shooter, so the frame rate delivered by the Radeon HD 5770/6770 at the reference clock rates is not really playable. The pre-overclocked PowerColor raises the performance bar to 23 fps but you may have slowdowns in the heat of a battle with multiple adversaries. There is no point in subjecting the PowerColor to further overclocking since you won't get much of a speed boost. Lowering the game's graphics quality settings is the only way to play comfortably.
Mass Effect 2
The performance of the Radeon HD 5770/6770 is as low as that of the GeForce GTS 450, yet the frame rate is at a playable level. When overclocked additionally, the PowerColor overtakes the GeForce GTX 550 Ti.
