ASUS Launches High-Quality Custom AMD Radeon HD 7770 Video Card

ASUS logoWell-known motherboard and notebook manufacturer, maker of the legendary Transformer tablets, Taiwanese company ASUS has just announced a new AMD Radeon HD 7770 video card. The new device features high-quality components, improved cooling, hardware monitoring and is slightly factory overclocked.

The GPU has 640 unified shader processors, 40 texturing units and 16 ROPs, but for more information on AMD’s “Cape Verde” chip, head over to this article.

ASUS’ HD7770-DC-1GD5-V2 video card comes factory overclocked with frequencies set at 1020 MHz for the GPU and 4600 MHz for the memory.

We wonder why ASUS even bothered with such a low overclock, but this may, in fact, offer the HD7770-DC-1GD5-V2 an advantage over other comparable cards that adhere strictly to the reference default frequencies.

The new Radeon HD 7770 from ASUS features the company's DirectCU custom cooling solution that allows a direct contact between the GPU and the heatpipes inside the cooler.

This enhanced cooling, the Digi+ VRM 6 + 2 phases power circuitry that brings 30% lower electrical noise on the PCB, along with the Super Alloy MOS will allow for stable overclocking using at least 28% higher voltages.

The cooling system occupies an extra slot in the system case, but this also brings two DVI ports along with a HDMI connector and a DisplayPort.

There is also a DVI to D-SUB 15 adapter included in the package, a CrossFire cable; one DVI port is DVI-D and the other is DVD-I.

The HD7770-DC-1GD5-V2 also comes with “GPU Tweak” of overclocking and hardware monitoring software and the company touts lower noise generated by the cooling system.

The price is slated at about $189 or €155 for the European user.
