probably turbocache too...
lower model of each gen has turbocache usually
remember with my 6200 before swapping it to 7800gt
what a nice transition it was lol...
not currently hoping for one if my 8800gt burn
to have it replaced on extended warranty
will grab a 9800gt with a new warranty

strange.. i never saw a 200 series with under 1024mb

Hi everyone,

Actually, I am using Windows XP and I just got yhis topic by searching on the internet. Surprisingly, I hope that I were getting a luck as someone here just said.

This is the VGA card I just ordered this week : exactly the same box like the following (PowerColor HD 5770 512 Mb GDDR5)



But when I checked for the specification of the card, it showed these (1 Gb memory)





I could not believe my eyes when I just saw this .

Retailers do make mistakes. It is possible you have a different card than you think. Download Speccy and find your video card. Is it the same as displayed on the box?
I just used this software and here , the result is still the same as what I posted :

Download TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.4.9 | techPowerUp

Here is a really good GPU info center.

Similar layout to CPU-Z.

I know there is a 512 version of that card but seriously aren't you happy it has more ram then inteded it might have been packaged wrong

If speecy read it then it should be on try gpuz and see what it says if it is the same Smile you just came up on a better card for the cheaper price

I could only wish to get that lucky

Thank you very much for your instruction.

I just downloaded and ran the GPU-Z . Yes, the miracle was not there My graphic card was just 512 Mb one. It must be a shared RAM.

No it is being read wrong. Could just be down to running the card on XP. ATI/AMD don't have any cards out now that use/share system ram.
