Since AMD announced their design for multiple monitor gaming dubbed “Eyefinity” many companies have attempted to use the varied product lines, supporting massive resolution gaming to hit the sweet spot of performance and features. One of AMD’s best products for the Eyefinity gaming sweet spot was the Radeon HD5770, which multiple monitors at a good performance level coupled with a great price. Building on its predecessor AMD and Power color have put out the PowerColor Radeon HD6770 Vortex II edition a true successor to the HD5770 building on and enhancing what originally worked. Join me as I put this card through its paces and test it out in both single and multi-monitor configurations

HD6770 with PowerColor’s distinctive Vortex II GPU cooler.

The 6700 series video cards from AMD are based on the previous 5700 series and is in fact the second generation to use the newer 40nm design. The 6700 series cards represent one of the most optimized line of the 5XXXX series cards, second generation 40nm design nets us cooler cards that are faster and more stable then any of its predecessors while still enabling you to get the most out of your DirectX 11 games.

One of the biggest things that separates the PowerColor version from the stock reference design is the unique vortex PCS cooling this cooling design is suppose to lower the temperature by 25% over the stock reference design. The cooling on the PowerColor version is raised much higher than the stock card and offers an adjustable fan that lets you control the airflow, this design is is PowerColor’s PCS+ Vortex II and in practice doesn’t generate undue noise while it keeps the card cooler than what the reference cards fan design would allow.

  1. Atleast if AMD HD 7770 comes with no power cord and less power, also Llano FM2 supporting integrated crossfire with HD7770 to double the performance, at a price tag around 250$ for both combined, then AMD can take Intel and Nvidia both out of the 100$ to 200$ processor and graphic cards segment respectively
