Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 1GB Flex Edition Review

This particular card comes in at an affordable price and delivers better than expected performance. This is exactly what we have come to expect from a company like Sapphire. By B. Ramirez

Today we will be looking at the new HD 6770 Flex Edition video card from Sapphire. This is an entry-level card that currently retails for about 140 dollars on most on-line retail sites. As you will see in this review this product comes with lots of great features and performs pretty well for the price. Sapphire has been doing this for about 10 years now, and they have become quite proficient at producing some great products.

With the proliferation of cards in this price point we will need to see how this card is able to set itself apart from the competition. As we have all learned by now AMD’s naming scheme can be quite confusing. The most important thing to remember is what family of card you are looking at. The first number in the name denotes the family of the card. In this case we are looking at a 6 thousand series card. The next three numbers give you where the card falls into in terms of performance for that family. The 770 is generally a higher-end entry-level card. I hope this is able to clear up some of the confusion for most people. Now let’s take a look at the features!
