The Gigabyte HD 5770 Super Overclock provides us with "Ultra Durable" components, cherry-picked GPUs, higher GPU frequencies, and a new cooling solution. With all that, does it wipe the floor with a Radeon HD 5770? How about GBT's claims comparing its card to the aging GTX 260? We put it to the test.
"In our introduction we showed a number of pledges that Gigabyte made with this video card. They promised a 13% performance bonus over a standard HD 5770. Even Newegg has picked up on this and put it straight on the title of the video card. When we came to find out that only the GPU frequency had been boosted and by only 5.8% this claim became very fishy to us. Our instincts have been proven to be correct since we never saw more than a 3% performance improvement during this whole review. Not to mention that there was never any gameplay experience improvement, which is more important to us."
