ASUS High-Quality Custom AMD Radeon HD 7770 Video Card

Well-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, 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.
