We have to regard HD 4770 as a proving ground for the 40nm process. On this showing it's a success, so we hope the next step will be new mid-range and high-end graphics cards.

We ganged up the two 4770s in CrossFireX on the Core i7 system and the results were very encouraging. In 3DMark Vantage, the GPU score leapt from 6993 marks to 9580 marks, but in Far Cry 2 the frame rate only increased from 40.2f/s to 44.5f/s.
