Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 6770 sales 21 January 2011 at a recommended price of $129. This is TeraScale 2 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.05 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 76.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 198 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 108 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

3.15%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

  • Passmark
  • 3DMark Fire Strike Graphics
  • Unigine Heaven 4.0

Passmark

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.

Benchmark coverage: 26%

3DMark Fire Strike Graphics

Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic enough graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.

Benchmark coverage: 14%

Unigine Heaven 4.0

This is an old DirectX 11 benchmark, a newer version of Unigine 3.0 with relatively small differences. It displays a fantasy medieval town sprawling over several flying islands. The benchmark is still sometimes used, despite its significant age, as it was released back in 2013.
