MSI 7770 Power Edition
As AMD’s 7000 series graphics card lineup has essentially unfolded, at least the reference designs, we’re beginning to see more non-reference products his the market now, generally with custom coolers and overclocked chips.
That’s certainly the case today with the MSI 7770 Power Edition. It’s a unique card that comes with something we haven’t seen before: a multi-configuration heatsink. Not unlike an Autobot perhaps, the Power Edition can physically transform and run three different setups to customize the cooling for your needs. MSI also ensure this card is built to last, with Military-class components. That’s awfully impressive for a lower-end card that costs only $150.
Flagship gaming cards garner most of the hype, but it’s the mainstream cards that often more quietly bring in the profits. This new MSI card certainly looks stylish, and the price is competitive, but what about performance? Nvidia doesn’t have any Kepler products in its lineup to compete at this price point for the time being, so affordable graphics cards are the domain of AMD for the time being.
If you’re in the market for a well-priced card that comes with some unique features, you’re in for a treat today. Let’s take a closer look at the MSI Radeon 7770 Power Edition and see how it stacks up.
