Uniqueness of this graphics card, which is powered by AMD Radeon GPU HD 7770, is revealed as soon as you un-box it. It comes with an extra fan that can be used either on top of the existing fan to provide more air pressure to the GPU or one can slide out the top panel and then attach the extra fan besides the existing fan to give a more uniform air flow. This flexible cooling option is named as ‘TransThermal’ by MSI and is quite useful if you want to overclock your card. Other important features of R7770 include support for PCI Express 3.0 and presence of HDMI, display, and DVI ports. R7770 supports CrossFire technology which means one can use this card in combination with other AMD CrossFire supporting cards.

To test this card, we took a Windows 7-based 32-bit machine with 3 GB RAM and SSD storage. Graphics capability was tested using 3DMark 2006 and CineBench Release 11.5 OpenGL benchmarks. In 3DMark 2006, R7770 scored 21,329, which is less than Palit GTX 560 Ti’s score of 26,577 (reviewed in July 2012). OpenGL score of 90 fps that R7770 managed is among the highest we have seen and if we continue to compare it with Palit GTX 560 Ti’s score of 60.76 fps, R7770 is far ahead.

Bottom Line: If you are looking for high performance at a low price then this graphics card can be one of the options.
