Today is the launch date of the 40nm ATI Radeon HD 4770. The first company to inform us about their new Radeon HD 4770 cards is MSI. Their R4770-T2D512 has a 750MHz RV740 and 512MB GDDR5 memory clocked at 3200MHz.
Insist on DrMOS
The MSI R4770-T2D512 is equipped with a 2nd generation DrMOS chip to maximize the performance and provide a stable power supply. DrMOS delivers the best power-saving and does not get hot.

Maximum lifespan with Hi-C CAP
For the best stability and longest lifespan, MSI R4770-T2D512 is equipped with the next generation solid capacitors; Hi-c CAP. This ensures higher stable voltages and better heat resistance.

The first 40 nm graphics processor
In contrast to the traditional 55 or 65 nanometer graphics processors, the MSI R4770 is equipped with the 40 nanometer graphics processor, which makes the card run cooler and more power efficient.

Equipped with GDDR5
In the past only high-end graphics cards such as the R4870 and the R4890 series had been equipped with high-speed GDDR5 memory. Now MSI is taking the lead in adding GDDR5 memory to its entry level graphics cards, such as the R4770, providing higher clock speeds and extra bandwidth for casual gamers.

Ultra power efficient
Not only is the MSI R4770 providing high-end graphics performance, but it is also equipped with DrMOS and ATI PowerPlay technology for dynamic power saving. Even under full load, the MSI R4770 graphics card won’t consume more than 90 Watts.

High Definition
In addition, the MSI R4770 supports the latest UVD 2.0 hardware decoding technology, which fully replaces CPU utilization during Blu-ray disc playback. It is also equipped with an HDMI 7.1 audio output, so no extra SPDIF cable is needed to enjoy watching movies.
