Sapphire HD 7770 Vapor-X
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, as the Sapphire HD 7770 Vapor-X hits the shelves. The Vapor-X has long been a popular lineup in Sapphire’s product arsenal, and with good reason: Vapor-X cards typically come overclocked and run very cool temperatures. That’s a very attractive combination to gamers, but perhaps moreso to the ones on a tighter budget, as the 7770 Vapor-X retails for about $150.
Flagship gaming cards garner most of the hype, but it’s the mainstream cards that often more quietly bring in the profits. Not to miss out on that opportunity, Sapphire now has the Sapphire Radeon 7770 Vapor-X for the masses. It certainly looks stylish, and the price is competitive. 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 ripe for the picking for Team AMD.
Let’s take a closer look at the Sapphire Radeon 7770 Vapor-X and see how it stacks up.
