New Revolution: ATI Radeon HD 4770 Graphics Card Review
$200 in America can buy a very good graphics card.
All in all, it's an excellent article but some modifications should be made to the anti-aliasing modes used for the tests.
What i find funny is that you say this 4770 has good oc potential, when it is so obvious that its 128bit memory bus screws its OC gains. When you oc a chip to more than 100mhz above core and 200mhz for mem, you should expect to see a 8-10 fps increase not the 1-2 if even that in some games.
The 4770 is a nice budget card, perfect for shoving into the Dell's and HP's out there that come with onboard vid. Aside from that it looks like AMD has shown that it has a new process tech that does really well, and im sure will shine better on a 256bit mem bus and scale much better.
In fact your right about the Iq setts used in the tests setup.the Ad-AA used for ATI cards is faar more demanding than the TR-AA used for nvidia cards.that's why ATI cards are losing in the games where the additional AA modes are supported like far Cry 2 ,Haxw and all current UBISOFT games. crysis,stalker don't support other than Ms-AA.
I'd much prefer to overclock at a driver level as opposed to Riva Tuners hardware level since it also overclocks in 2d-mode.
It is surprising the card does less well than the 4670 with DVDs. Sounds likely to be an issue with early drivers. Have they said anything? Are you planning on re-testing?
