Closer Look: XFX Radeon HD 7770
The XFX R7770 Black Super Overclocked Edition with Double Dissipation comes with an accessory package that includes a DVI to HDMI cable, a DVI to VGA adapter, a Crossfire bridge, a spiffy Black Edition badge for your case, a driver CD, and documentation. Not shown are order forms for additional cables and the warranty registration.
The styling of the XFX R7770 is similar to its Tahiti-based big brother R7950 and R7970 cards. The main differences are a single 6-pin power connector and only a single Crossfire bridge connector. With this card you'll be limited to a two-card Crossfire setup.
Well, there is one other difference: it's much smaller than the 79XX-series cards. Next to an R7950 card, the 7770-based card seems small and delicate.
The back of the card has many fewer components that its larger brothers. The heat sink is secured by only four screws, instead of the 20+ on the larger cards.
Let's take a closer look at this card in the next section.
