My Second HD 4770 has Arrived
 
Time for some benchies:

3DMV - P11227

Not bad, my first run with a HD4870X2 only got P12622.

Seems to me the color fill test demonstrates how crappy the 128bit memory bus is.

3DM06 @ 1920x1200 (my Quad at 3.0 is bottleneck city, might as well up the res. when you can)
HD4770's 15895
HD4870X2 15774

More to follow if there's any interest.:ph34r:

w00t for budget Crossfire :clap:

Pretty decent score for about $200 in GPUs? Have you OC'd them yet?

I haven't tried the second card yet, but rest assured, I will be OC'ing the snot out of these. Total cost was $268, $158 for the first, I picked up the second for $110 shipped.

any gaming benchmarks coming up?

I'm thinking of getting a second one.

couldn't you get a 4850 and Crossfire b/c the Powercolor one is $99 @ NCIX.

rapmaster August 6, 2009 06:54 PM

4770 can't crossfire with 4850

And the cheapo CF setup beats the $730 monster in '06 at 1920x1200 http://24.138.52.57/suspicious.gif

Hey Doc.. howdy..

Nice.. so far what I've seen with the 4770 and I'm impressed.. Card has been performing really well, look at your Crossfire beats out the X2.. Oh well good luck having fun with the cards..

If you have no luck, send them over, I'll make sure they run properly :p

Hmmm, only 19K in the default '06 bench thus far... Time to drop the gloves. (Vista doesn't seem to be helping much either)

Your right Vista 64 Bit doesn't do 3DM06 any justice, however running that X fire with a Quad CPU ashould get better results (I would think...could be wrong)....9800 GTX + SLI ($300 fpr two) and a Dual Core (E8400) puts out 19.5K.......
If that XFire is anything like SLI your Q6600 @ 3.2 Ghz is holding you back....bump it up to 3.6 - 3.8 and re-test..

Roll up the sleeves man!
