Pros

uses the latest and greatest GDDR5 memory

5 agree

plants itself firmly between the 4830 and 4850 in terms of performance

4 agree

extremely low power consumption - uses half the power of a 4830 under full load, while outperforming it, 17.4w idle

4 agree

high value - dollar for dollar better than any previous generation card in or around its price point (up to $150)

4 agree

built on the latest, most energy efficient fabrication process

4 agree

easily overclocked GPU to 830MHz , memory to 850MHz (via Catalyst Control Center)

Cons

uses double the power at idle as the previous generation 4670

3 agree

includes a noisy stock cooler

3 agree

artificially limited overclocking ability

2 agree

requires a six-pin PCI Express power connector Power Supply

1 agrees

40nm fab issues at TSMC mean these are impossible to find months after their official release

Introduced in mid April 2009 and release only weeks later, the Radeon HD 4770 is a middle-of-the-road graphics card by AMD/ATI. The first graphics card to be built on a 40nm process, the HD 4770 reaches new performance levels for its price point, keeping heat, and power consumption at acceptable levels. While maintaining the 128bit memory bus found on the previous generation 4670, the card's performance improvements are due to an increased GPU speed - through use of a more energy efficient fabrication - as well as improving the overall memory bandwidth through use of faster DDR5 chips first used on the higher level 4870.
