AMD Launches the ATI Radeon™ HD 4770
AMD today launched the ATI Radeon™ HD 4770 graphics processor, a groundbreaking product that harnesses the state-of-the-art 40 nanometer manufacturing process for the desktop PC market, delivering best-in-class performance and energy efficiency at anticipated launch prices as low as $99.
“Consumer pressure in this economic downturn is shifting demand to lower prices and the price band around $100 has the highest demand and highest volume,” said Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager, Graphics Products Group, AMD. “AMD has responded with the launch of the ATI Radeon HD 4770, targeting this market with cutting-edge technologies like 40 nm processors, support for DirectX 10.1 gaming and GDDR5 memory."
The card performs better than Geforce 9800GT and it's slightly slower than the Radeon HD 4850, but at the same time, it runs cooler than the HD 4850. It is a dual slot graphics card and it has an external power connector, but the best attribute will definitely be the performance you get for the price.
