AMD Radeon HD 7770 and 7750 Video Card Reviews
Last month AMD introduced the Radeon HD 7000 series (Southern Islands) of graphics cards. These new cards are based on the 28nm manufacturing process and use a new core architecture called Graphics Core Next (GCN). Many assumed that AMD would be doing a top-to-bottom launch for the AMD Radeon HD 7000 product line, but that is not the case. AMD decided skip over Pitcairn, the Radeon HD 7800 series, and introduce Cape Verde along with the Radeon HD 7700 series.

At the end of the day the AMD Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition and the Radeon HD 7750 are both solid mainstream graphics cards. They played all the games we wanted and can easily run games at 1920x1080 resolutions with moderate image quality settings. They will be extremely popular in the months to come and we can easily recommend them to our readers as this card will be the go to series for mainstream gamers.

There is no reason to upgrade if AMD keeps this pricing scheme, because the performance per dollar you are getting is equal or less then last gen; and I wonder if that is even a good business decision as if they priced these 7000 series parts against Nvidia's next gen they might have been able to get significantly higher sales volume; and stopped almost all of Nvidia's sales for a few months.
As it is the 7770 looks like a good HP or Dell upgrade, but little else for now. The lack of performance increase at the same cost just sucks. Power savings is great I guess, but really the $160-180 cards for the 28nm generation should be offering 6950/560ti performance imo.
