Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC Video Card Review

The Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC (GV-R777OC-1GD) is a custom AMD Radeon HD 7770 video card that uses a custom PCB and GPU cooler to make it stand out from the rest. It is also factory overclocked to 1100 MHz on the core clock to ensure that it is faster than the reference design. Radeon on to see how this video card does when compared to two other Radeon HD 7770 cards on our test bench. We also overclock it further and see how the custom GPU cooler does!

After spending a couple weeks using the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC 1GB GDDR5 video card (part number GV-R777OC-1GD) we found it to be a great little video card. We like that it is faster, quieter and cooler than the AMD Radeon HD 7770 reference card. The fact that it is also about half an inch shorter is also a plus. At the end of the day there is nothing we could find wrong with this card!

Looks like they be using old socket 775 heatsinks does it have an copper slug in the middle of it

And $10 for an OC you could yourself for free is a bit rich [-X now maybe if it came with Voltage control and you could get an extra 2~300 MHz out of it I'd be interested :roll:

Totally agree... There needs to be something more than just a clock bump for an increased cost.
