Excerpt: Introduction SapphireTech have refreshed their AMD ATI Radeon 5700 series range with five new offerings that belong to the new AMD Radeon HD 6700 family of cards. Of course, as most of our readers remember, the new 6700 series features the same GPU core, codenamed Juniper , from the Evergreen 5-series of GPUs. Juniper was launched in October 2009 , and has proven to be a very successful design; nowadays you can find it in Apple products as well as OEM Windows PC designs.
Summary: Overall, the Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon 6770 1GB GDDR5 is a very fast card, especially for it’s price. If you are looking to upgrade your card from a 4000 series ATI or a lower Nvidia card you are in for a treat. I went from an Nvidia GTS450 to this and there was a noticeable improvement.
Excerpt: I don't tend to do too much research on these lower end mid-range products. For starters, little information about them leaks because most people aren't all that interested. And secondly, partners tend to contact me about them before launch because they like these budget cards to get their moment in the spot light.
