ASUS has decided to price their board at the AMD MSRP, so the added value is really added value over the reference design, since there is no price premium charged for it.

It features a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, with which it communicates with 1 GB of memory.

In our testing we see excellent noise results from the HIS HD 7770 iCooler, making it whisper quiet in idle and barely audible under load - a great improvement over the reference design.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Gaming

A couple of judicious choices about where to reduce quality should provide a nice experience with almost any new game.
by Jason-Cross (Apr, 2012)
Both cards are similar at idle, but when you fire up a game, the difference is remarkable.
by Jason-Cross (Apr, 2012)
It’s fast enough for modern games, but just barely.

Applications

I've never seen that controller before, so it is unknown whether it supports software voltage control.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2012)
For gaming this is very impressive, as XFX's card runs significantly higher clock speeds than the AMD reference board, which typically results in increased power draw - not so with the XFX HD 7770.

Performance

You may combine up to two HD 7770 cards from any vendor in a multi-GPU CrossFire configuration for higher framerates or better image quality settings.
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2012)
Even though Vapor-X was engineered for high-end cards, the company's exclusive cooling technology can really show its potential on this lower-midrange card.
by techPowerUp! (May, 2012)
You get right around 30 frames per second at 1080p resolution in modern games, with the detail settings cranked up high.
by Jason-Cross (Apr, 2012)

Power

This efficiency is supposed to show in relative performance per mm² (taking the new 28 nm fab process into account), performance per Watt, and in more layman terms, performance to stream processor count.
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2012)
AMD's latest graphics processor shows outstanding power consumption characteristics.
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2012)
In this power state, the graphics card draws less than 3W of power, making it extremely energy-efficient.
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2012)

Crysis

We can look at an individual game, like Crysis 2, and see that the Nvidia card is a good 20 percent faster.
by Jason-Cross (Apr, 2012)
In fact, when we average together the results from all our test games (Crysis 2, Dirt 3, Metro 2033, and Just Cause 2), we find the GeForce 560 to be over 25 percent faster.

stupid assholes. know what your screen resolutions are.
Yeah! For me too! And Tomb Raider on Extreme but with lowered ssao.
It plays FC3 on ultra at 30 fps for me...
Works great for my needs !
This card really helped me on some games, i mean vanilla skyrim ran fine, but you put any enb with it and you get like 30 fps, its a shame it can't handle good graphics skyrim in high res. Its not the card i recommend these times, there is a a much better card for like a 50-75 bucks difference. You gotta be cheap to buy this card, honestly.
This card, in combination with my dual-core i5 and 8GB of DDR3, runs Battlefield 3 smooth on medium settings, Far Cry 3 the same. It even manages to play Skyrim smooth on high (Smooth to me is 50FPS+.). Add to that it's very low price point and low power requirement makes it perfect for the budget gamer who can't pay £200/$300 for a card.
