XFX HD6770 fiasco - Page 3

post #21 of 281
I'd contact AMD about that as they stated that the 6750/70 are strictly OEM cards. From the issues I've had with Futureshop/BestBuy I wouldn't doubt it was a tested faulty card they decided to throw on the shelf in hopes someone will buy and not return.

I remember taking back so many items after Xmas that were faulty that I decided tomark the packaging to see if they made it back to the shelf. Sure enough, an MP3 player that had a scratched screen, worn play button and dead pixels, AS A BRAND NEW ITEM, was back on the shelf as a brand new item 2 days later. The C.M. I marked on the inside of the box was still there...

I am not at my home computer so I cant test this, but I would *think* it would be possible to modify some configuration file for the Catalyst Driver Install Package to use the 5770 drivers if it detects the 6770 hardware string. Just trying to think of possible solutions.

Regardless if that works or not, I agree this shouldnt be necessary at all and you have every right to RAAAAAAGE.

wait im confused your mad at xfx for not having drivers??? Sorry but AMD makes the drivers so its not xfx's fault and actually the 6770 is slower then the 5770 i believe. I dislike people like you who freak out at something as little as this that card is BRAND NEW it just came out give it some time and stop hating xfx for something thats amd's fault

most OEMs enable you to download the drivers off of their web site based on the model. You can try to figure out which model prebuilt has that GPU and then download it. I know it's a hassle, but it is better than nothing.

Best Buy here has a 30 day no hassle return policy. When I RMAed my 5850 I picked up a 6870 from best buy and then just returned it when the 5850 came back, no hassle.

It's XFX's fault for releasing the card prematurely, if it's even supposed to be released at all. And with all their other bullcrap, I think it's safe to say that they're a terrible company.

Stop being an apologist.

Well, if the HD 6770 is strictly OEM as stated, XFX is not supposed to put it in a pretty little retail packaging and send it to a retailer.

Its an OEM card, they typically have the drivers provided by the company selling/branding the card.

Also, the 6770 is a rebranded 5770 for OEM use only, thus why you can't buy a 6770 retail, even though this poster did.

However I do think the issue here is that BB sold an OEM card as a retail card without supplying drivers.

OEM ONLY right at the top...

Edit> Contact AMD about the issue and also contact the BBB. If theres a company selling product they are not allowed to sell, they should be reported.
