ATI Radeon HD 4770 Released, Uses 40nm RV740 GPU

AMD launched the ATI Radeon HD 4770, the first graphics processor to harnesses the 40 nanometer manufacturing process for the desktop PC market, delivering best-in-class performance and energy efficiency at anticipated launch prices as low as $99.

The ATI Radeon HD 4770 makes use of the latest GDDR5 memory technology, providing incredibly high data rates for fast game performance.

"Consumer pressure in this economic downturn is shifting demand to lower prices and the price band around $100 has the highest demand and highest volume," said Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager, Graphics Products Group, AMD.5 "AMD has responded with the launch of the ATI Radeon HD 4770, targeting this market with cutting-edge technologies like 40 nm processors, support for DirectX 10.1 gaming and GDDR5 memory. This strategy stands in stark contrast to the old "trickle down" technology approach some still use to address this important segment."

"As a leading source of cutting-edge game development tools, Emergent has a passion for delivering realistic, visually stunning game play as well as improved performance," said Doug Kubel, vice president, Product Development, Emergent. "By supporting DirectX 10.1 in the Gamebryo LightSpeed development system, we are able to deliver improvements in both image quality and frame rates. DirectX 10.1 graphics hardware like the ATI Radeon HD 4770 makes it possible to fully unlock the experience delivered by the combined power of DirectX10.1 and Gamebryo LightSpeed."

dude you have no idea what your talking about your thinking about DDR, which is system wide ram. GDDR is only on the video card, so yes... any motherboard can support it. any motherboard can support any kind of GDDR, as long as it can support the card that the ram is on(IE the motherboard can support a pcie video card). and really it sounds like nothing by this article. they don't give any speeds or anything so its impossible to tell how good this is. but at its price point. I'd say its an entry level card, hardly news worthy

I'll stick to my ati fire pro series, HD this HD that BS.Also to the gentlemen spouting non sense on GDDR it is actually DDR the G just means graphics. Its technically the same physical ram that goes on your mobo, with the slight difference in how it processes graphics data. Why do I know this, who the bull plop am I?? I'm a 3d Modeler and happen to little about graphics and how it processed and also I rely on hardware that requires good a load of power. Power that gaming cards simply don't deliver, enjoy making a fool of yourself.

This 4770 is actually an excellent low-budget card for its performances and only costs around 99$. With the recent release of HD4890 (which is an excellent mid-range card except for its outrageous power consumption and noise), a lot of people consider a CrossFire HD4770 alternative since 2 of them consume less power and produce less noise than one single 4890, cost about the same if not less, and beat it on every terrain except when AA8X is activated (due to the 128bit bus).
